We are currently seeking to appoint a nursery worker for our Child & Family Centre, Govan.
The Child & Family Centre provides a number of valuable services to the local community from nursery provision and parenting support classes, to counselling and confidence building activities. Working with over 100 children and their families, our aim is to break the poverty cycle and give kids in Govan the best start in life. We are passionate that prevention is better than cure, and by investing in safe guarding and supporting families, helping children and parent alike grow to become confident and ‘life equipped’ we are reducing the likelihood of them needing our services in the city centre.
The nursery worker will work as part of a team and be jointly responsible for the provision of a safe and stimulating environment for children attending the Child & Family Centre nursery.
Applicants should be qualified to SVQ III or equivalent in childcare and should have experience of working with children in a nursery setting. Candidates should be in sympathy with the ethos of Glasgow City Mission.
