Freshlings Nursery is based on Plymouth’s university campus where we provide a safe, healthy, caring, inclusive and stimulating environment for our children. Our children are respected and supported as individuals and are encouraged to learn through play and exploration.

Freshlings provides nursery provision for up to 86 children between the ages of 0-5 and is available for staff and students at the University. Our opening times are 8.15am - 5.45pm, Monday - Friday, all year round.

We are looking for experienced and qualified Practitioners to join our friendly and highly motivated team. We have permanent, full time opportunities available plus a fixed term contract to cover maternity leave. You will have a minimum Level 3 childcare qualification as well as previous experience of working in a childcare setting with under 5s. Applicants will be confident and caring individuals with good communication skills and the ability to work in close partnerships with our parents.

Under the direction of the Management Team and Room Supervisors, you will work to support a high quality provision, driving the setting forward in a positive manner.

As the nursery is based on the University’s campus, successful applicants will have access to attend lectures and training available through the University as part of their continuous professional development.

Successful candidates will be employed by University Commercial Services Plymouth Ltd (UCSP) and successful candidates would therefore be subject to UCSP terms and conditions of employment. UCSP is a wholly owned subsidiary company of the University of Plymouth. Our vision is to enrich the experience of the students, staff and the wider community. We aim to create a financially sustainable and professional service which currently includes Early Years Education and Care, Retail Catering, Hospitality and Events.

There are great benefits to working with UCSP; including increased annual leave and sickness entitlement with length of service.

You are also eligible to join the Aviva pension scheme.

We are committed to the safeguarding and welfare of all our children. All positions are subject to individuals securing enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance.
