We are now searching for anyone interested in becoming part of this exciting Early Years expansion which will spread to all nurseries throughout the islands by 2020. By then, new Nursery Key Workers will be needed in all settings and this brings opportunity for anyone interested in starting a career in Early Learning & Childcare, or making use of their experience as a parent to develop skills and support more young children through their early experiences. It is essential that you have the ability to speak and read Gaelic. If you already have a childcare qualification we would love to hear from you (if you are successfully recruited you would be entitled to our rate of pay for qualified staff of £10.14 + £1.06 Distant Islands Allowance per hour) If you are new to nursery work but are interested in developing new skills we can support you to achieve your qualification whilst you are working for us. Finally, we would encourage anyone interested to apply for these new posts in Sgoil Araich Shiaboist. Working with young children is both fun and rewarding and we look forward to welcoming you to the team! Salary for the above post is inclusive of Distant Islands Allowance.
