Training can be provided for the right candidate although experience is preferred. This is a permanent position.

£10.50 to £11.00 per hour (minimum level 3 qualified).

Early Years Keyworker:

The Early Years Keyworker role is Initially temporary although it could become permanent with need. You will be willing to roll your sleeves up and muck in with the team, including changing nappies, preparing snacks and undertaking observations. You will be responsible for tracking the development of a small group of children, liaising with their parents and planning for their learning. Ideally you will have experience in a similar setting although training could be offered to the right candidate. 

£9.50 to £9.69 per hour (minimum level 2 qualified)
