Applying for temporary work - what to expect
Are you looking for the odd day now and then to fit in with other commitments? Or an ongoing placement somewhere?

When you come to register with our friendly consultants you'll have an interview about working in nurseries, get to discuss your requirements, and show us all your documents. The consultant will help you through the referencing and DBS process and our system will send you an email each week so you know how your application is progressing.

Once you've cleared our safeguarding checks you'll be live on our system and your consultant will contact you to welcome you onboard. Then you just login to our website from your phone and update when you want to work each week and our consultant matches you to the available shifts.

Remember to get your timesheet signed at the end of each placement, get it in to us and you're paid the following Friday. You even get pay holiday pay and a pension.

Ready to start? Just click the APPLY button at the top of this page.
