Salary: 15,873 pro rata
Location: Edinburgh

Closing date: 29 January 2017

Senior Creche Worker

30 hours over 5 days per week

£15,873 pro rata

Here at the CrossReach Perinatal Service at Wallace House in Edinburgh we understand that when a parent experiences perinatal depression or anxiety, the whole family is affected. By offering therapy and support to mothers and fathers and their children, we hope to support families in alleviating their distress. Senior Creche Staff play an essential role in the confidential provision we offer families. The Creche workers skills provide an integral part in the successful therapeutic outcome through their observation, communication and support with parents and their children.

This is your opportunity to join our experienced and supportive team. You will be responsible for the provision and management of safe, creative and stimulating crèche space for babies and toddlers, whose parent/s are attending the service, based in Edinburgh. A sensitive approach to parents who may be feeling anxious, depressed and inadequate is vital, along with the ability to work some flexible hours.

An NNEB/SVQ3 in childcare or equivalent qualification would be an advantage, but more important is significant experience of working with very young children and in being non-judgmental and empathic when meeting parents. This combined with the ability to work well in a team, using excellent communication skills.

In return, you can look forward to first class training, and an excellent benefits package that includes an employer contributory pension and generous holiday allowance.

You will also be part of one of Scotland’s largest voluntary social work organisations. At CrossReach, we offer quality care and counselling. But the real story of CrossReach is the work that our staff do: reaching out and making a difference to the lives of others.

Applicants are required to have a Christian faith and be able to work within and uphold our Christian Ethos.  This post is subject to PVG Scheme Membership.

Closing date:  Midnight Sunday 29th January 2017. 

CrossReach is the operating name for The Church of Scotland Social Care Council.
