Supply Staff Vacancies

We are currently recruiting Supply Early Years Practitioners to cover staff absences due to training or illness. 

Hours of work

To provide cover on demand during term times only:

Mondays – 8.30am/9am to 2/3.30pm

Tuesdays – 8.30am/9am to 2/3.30pm

Wednesdays – 8.30am/9am to 2/3.30pm

Thursdays – 8.30am/9am to 1.30pm

Ideally, we are looking for staff who can be available at short notice. To cover for staff illness, we contact our supply team around 7.30am to start work at 8.30am/9am the same day.

Pay and terms and conditions of employment

Supply staff with a full and relevant Level 3 qualification or higher are paid £10 an hour, but are self-employed contractors so responsible for their own tax and NI if appropriate. Supply staff are paid according to a signed timesheet on a monthly basis. 

Supply staff are responsible for covering the cost of their own DBS check, which will be verified using the DBS update service. Supply staff must supply two satisfactory references prior to any work being offered. 

Please contact the Preschool Business Manager, Jen Harper, using the contact form if you are interested in a supply role at Freshford Pre-school.

Volunteer Vacancies

We always welcome new volunteers of any age to work with the children. Volunteering with the preschool can provide valuable experience before starting a teaching or childcare qualification.

Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering.
