Why Cherubs Nurseries?

At Cherubs Nurseries, we’re working hard to give early years professionals the respect and recognition they deserve. So, whether you’re looking to kickstart your career through an Apprenticeship or already have experience working in early years we would love you to join us.

We need a range of people to ensure the success of our business – from early years educators to chefs, maintenance and head office. Your unique skills set could be the perfect match for a career with us.

We’re all about bringing people together and taking them where they want to go. This applies as much to our people as it does to the thousands of children we care for each year.

Whilst we push ourselves as a company, we’ll help you develop too. We’ll give you regular feedback and support you to better yourself. When you first become part of the team we’ll agree objectives with you and review them continually throughout your career with us. Everyone has access to great training, development and promotion opportunities. As we’re a group of nurseries (and constantly growing) the next step in your career is never far away.

In short, it’s about offering greater diversity, more development, better training and more valuable experiences. It’s about investing in our people and their futures. After all, it’s only when they realise their full potential that we can achieve our wider business goals.

We never underestimate the challenges of working in early years. So alongside fair and progressive pay, you will receive 20% off childcare at Cherubs Nurseries, little lifts throughout the year and the opportunity to join your colleagues at our annual Excellence Awards – a night you won’t want to miss!

We care about the wellbeing of our people and offer everyone free access to our Employee Assistance Programme, through Health Assured. We also host events throughout the year that are dedicated to the wellbeing of our people.

We’ll show you we’re proud of you too with long service awards, nominations for national awards and by taking part in recognition events throughout the year including National Nursery Practitioner Day which takes place every October.

But what is it really like to work here?

You could ask everyone who works here that question, and get a different answer each time. It’s all sorts of things; it can be deeply rewarding and it can also be great fun. At times it can be frustrating and it can be tough and demanding.
For some it’s a great job they leave behind at the end of the day but for others it’s their life and passion.

It’s not just what we do here at Cherubs Nurseries that sets us apart from others but the way we do it and our 5 brand promises shape who we are and how we interact with our colleagues, parents and children.
