CHILDCARE PRACTITIONER/ NURSERY NURSE
The Activity Den caters for ages ranging from 0-11, offering a range of energetic and creative activities in a regulated, safe and happy environment. One day you could be donning a pirate patch, and on another you could be hosting a superhero party. It really is that diverse, so each shift will be an adventure and no two days will ever be the same.
We’re a team. Imagine working in an environment where support and wellbeing are second nature. Our team of nursery staff and managers extend their experience and knowledge as often as they can so we can all work together to achieve guest excellence.
ABOUT THE ROLE
Our Activity Den is incredibly popular with guests and their children. You’ll help to create a brilliant, fun-filled and stimulating environment, ensuring the children have a good time at all times, whilst keeping an eye on safety and learning in the setting.
As you can imagine, even though this is a leisure setting, we still have to make sure we adhere to industry rules and regulations, so completing paperwork will be an essential requirement of the role.
You’ll be someone who is naturally cheerful, friendly and approachable, and who works well in a team environment. Building relationships and trust with parents is just as important as being able to communicate with children.
Due to the sensitive nature of this role the successful applicant will be required to undergo Garda Vetting. This disclosure, together with other selection information, will need to be satisfactory to the Company for employment to commence.
HOURS OF WORK
You will be contracted to work either 60 or 120 hours per 4 week period, working on a flexible basis. This means that your hours and days of work could vary each week, but you will always receive at least your contracted hours each period.
Your working hours will include some weekends, public/bank holidays and during Christmas and/or New Year on a rota basis, with a premium rate of pay for hours worked on a Sunday.
