If so, Bushey St James Trust (BSJT) has a fantastic opportunity for a Nursery Manager to join our growing multi academy Trust.   The successful person will be responsible for the management and development of our new ‘Little Gems Nursery’ which opened in September 2018.  The nursery is an exciting new initiative offering subsidised childcare to members of staff employed across BSJT for babies and children aged 6 months to 3 years.

The successful person will have a minimum Level 3 Early Years qualification and be keen to develop and grow the new nursery.  The Little Gems Nursery is located on the premises of Little Reddings Primary School which already has an established and well-led school nursery.  We are looking for someone who has: excellent childcare skills and holds the relevant childcare qualifications, proven staff development and team management skills, great organisational ability, ambitions to provide the very best experience for our children and families and an interest in the latest Early Years trends and initiatives.

The Little Gems Nursery is open from 8.00am to 6.00pm weekdays during term-time so some flexibility will be required with working patterns/hours.  The salary for the post is APT&C points 29 – 32 + fringe (currently £26,470p.a. to £29,055p.a. + £857p.a.), paid pro-rata based on hours worked.  Actual salary point will depend on skills and experience.

Bushey St James Trust is a great place to work and is made up of Bushey Meads School, Little Reddings Primary School and Hartsbourne Primary School.  All of our schools have strong links with other local schools and good practice and ideas are shared across the Trust.  Transport links are good with the M1, M25, A1 and A41 being close by and local bus routes are only a short walk.
