We are looking for Early Years Practitioners to join our teams in the above Early Learning and Childcare settings.

This is an exciting time for Early Learning and Childcare, and we are looking for enthusiastic people who would enjoy being part of a team to help deliver flexible, high-quality care that meets the needs of children aged 2 to 5 years.

You should have a good general standard of education, including literacy and numeracy, and a minimum of 2 years' work or volunteering experience involving children.

You are also required to achieve an HNC in Childhood Practice, SVQ Level 3 (SCQF7) Social Services (Children and Young People) or other recognised qualification that enables registration with the SSSC as a Practitioner (Day Care of Children) within 3 years of taking up post.

To be appointed at G6:
