    Created: 13/01/2022

    Post: Childcare Practitioner 

    Salary: £9.15 - 9.50 (to be reviewed in March 2022)

    Location: St Andrews

    Cosmos Community Centre is looking to recruit a Childcare Practitioner to join its team. This is a very rewarding position, working alongside an experienced childcare team. The ideal candidate should interact well with children, be patient, have imagination, common sense and be well organised, with a genuine interest in child development. They will assist in the collection of up to 56 children after school to bring them to the Centre, help in snack preparation and liaise with the wider staff team in organising activities for the children to ensure the youngsters have the best outcome and experience. Working hours will be between 14:00 - 18:00 during term time, with additional hours required during Inset days and school holidays (apart from Christmas and New Year), as the Centre provides full day cover during these times. The service is looking for both permanent and casual/relief workers to ensure the smooth running of the childcare facility. Childcare qualifications are preferable (HNC, SVQ3 or equivalent) but not essential, as extensive training will be given. Vetting procedures are required through Protection of Vulnerable Groups scheme, with a brief medical check also undertaken. Registration with the Scottish Social Services Council will be required after induction.
