Graduate Trainee Nursery Manager

The Graduate Trainee Manager Programme is the first step to managing one of our successful nurseries in Sussex. From day one, you’ll be based on the nursery floor learning how each area of the nursery works. One minute you’ll be working with the children, the next you’ll be learning about the business. You’ll work alongside our Early Years Educators, Team Leaders and Assistant Managers whilst you complete an intensive initial training period.

It takes up to six months to complete the initial stages of the Trainee Manager Programme, and after successfully completing the training period and relevant courses, you’ll be promoted to 2nd Assistant Manager and become part of the core Nursery Management team.

The next steps could involve promotion to 1st Assistant Manager, Nursery Manager and beyond.This is a great opportunity to embark on a career with a fast expanding company where you will develop and acquire transferable skills in a dynamic business environment, as well as meet some great people along the way.


We are looking for candidates who are:

• Graduates with Childcare Qualification

• Early Years Teacher Status or equivalent

Personal attributes:

• You’ll need to be comfortable rolling up your sleeves and getting involved with each area of the nursery and be a really quick learner, as there’s a lot to learn in a short space of time. A logical mind and great people skills are really important too.

• Determination, hard work and ambition. You’ll be required to learn a lot and apply what you have learnt, and to always lead by example.

• It’s a challenging and diverse role, so being self-motivated and open to change really helps.
