The post will be for 52 weeks per year, and will involve working different patterns over the week to accommodate a wrap around service, and later a year round service. There may also be times when you support colleagues in other Orkney settings.
You will join a small group of new managers and senior practitioners, and will be able to access development and training for your role.
To be appointed at G10:
You should hold a Degree in Childhood Practice, or other relevant qualification to meet the SSSC criteria as a Manager / Lead Practitioner in a Day Care of Children Service.
