  • East Devon
  • Full Time
  • £25,000 - £27,000 per annum (depending on experience).

We are recruiting a Nursery Manager for our new setting at Greendale Farm! 

We are looking for a immediate start so that you can work alongside another manager to fully embrace the Nanny Bears Ethos before taking over the Greendale setting in November.

You must be qualified to at least level 3 with experience in similar role.

40 hours per week with a salary between £25,000 - £27,000 depending on experience.

At Nanny Bears our vision is to create small, homely settings in rural locations so our children can experience nature as well as nurture. Our new purpose built, scandi-inspired setting at Greendale continues our unique ethos of ‘Caring for your child as if they were one of our own’ in a Hygge environment. The Greendale setting is open plan with tall ceilings and lots of natural light, it will has free flow access to our very own garden space. 
As we are located at the Farm Shop it is perfect for exploring the landscapes and visiting the lake, we take daily walks to say hello to the animals and we have the beautiful highland cows as our neighbours!

Our families' well-being is the most important aspect of Nanny Bears. We want our staff to have a sense of belonging, to feel appreciated and enjoy life! We have a qualified mental health first aider to support our team and offer free counselling to those who need it. We enable our team members to have a input into layouts and routines, supporting them to feel responsible and respected. We also have extra staff, managers working in the rooms but out of ratio and lunch cover so you don’t feel overstretched or stressed. We also keep our numbers of children low so rooms are not over crowded and children are relaxed and calm.

We have researched the industry and offer a very competitive rate for our team, we have just increased our salaries by 10% to support the increase in living. We offer more holiday, full pay for requested overtime and free training and personal development. We also encourage our team to take responsibility so progression is encouraged.

We try to be as flexible as possible with working hours and supporting you in your family life. We want you to be happy so we will do our best to be as accommodating as possible to whatever life throws at you. We also do not ask our team to wear uniform, instead we offer you a uniform allowance so you can choose your own clothes.

Our family is so important to us, so achievements are recognised and rewarded through bonus’s, extra holidays or little treats such as spa vouchers or a bottle of bubbly. We also have lots of staff socials and team building events to bring everyone together.

At Nanny Bears we understand how hard you work for us so we give extra holiday than the usual standard entitlement. We also offer our managers extra holidays through length of service as well as half a day off a week.
