GLL are looking for a part time Creche Assistant to work 8 hours per week to provide a safe, stimulating, educational and fun environment for children attending Creche Play and Learn at Link Centre in Swindon, Wiltshire. Our Centres provide childcare and welfare for children of up to five years of age as well as providing support to their families, so it's imperative that the facilities and surroundings provide a clean, safe and welcoming environment.
High quality care, education and a safe, yet enjoyable environment are of the utmost importance in our Children's Centres, so your commitment to provide fun structured sessions and activities in line with GLL's Creche Play and Learn brand will be key. Good understanding of the challenges faced when working with children of different ages, abilities and cultures will be needed as you'll provide a welcoming and stimulating environment in order to deliver high quality childcare.
You'll have childcare experience covering differing age groups in various settings with a minimum NVQ/CACHE Level 2 in Childcare (or equivalent) with a First Aid at Work qualification. It will be beneficial to have knowledge of Birth to Three Matters, Foundation Stages, Ofsted and Health & Safety legislation as well as the qualities that parents and guardians expect from childcare provision. It goes without saying that you'll be friendly and approachable as well as being imaginative, creative and a positive role model to the children that you supervise.
In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:
- Pension schemes
- Childcare vouchers
- Ride to work scheme
- Discounted membership at our leisure centres
- The opportunity to join the GLL Society and have a say in how we're run plus associated social events
- Career pathways
- Ongoing training and development
If you're passionate and committed about what you do and believe in our social ethos of accessibility and affordability to all, then apply now.
All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications, age and location.
To be shortlisted for the role, internal applicants will need to demonstrate their commitment to GLL by becoming a Society member where eligible.
