Be a part of something BRILL  


About the role. 

The role is to be a part of our Flexi-Team of Nursery staff that work with us on a ad-hoc basis.  It’s the perfect role for someone who wants flexibility with both the hours they work and the hours they commit to on a weekly basis. 

Our dream Nursery Practitioner would be someone who is Level 3 qualified and has experience of working within a nursery environment.  They are passionate about what they do and want to work in a setting that is forward thinking and open to new ideas.    


Our dream interview would go a little something like this… 

There would of course be a warm welcome to Grosvenor House, followed by a coffee and a bit of a chat. Then we’d get stuck in. 

You’d talk to us about being the practitioner that excites and can make learning fun, you can also give awesome cuddles. 


We wouldn’t ask you to do it right there and then, but if we did, you’d be comfortable to showcase some dance moves and good old sing-along.  You are energised by being part of team that is always looking at new ways of doing things and creating inspiring experiences for children.  You like to learn and we see this through your curious questions.  You also have some pretty cool ideas on how we can enhance our service to the children, perhaps you’ll even share some of the really BRILL stuff you’ve already done. 


You take Safeguarding seriously and you’re passionate about supporting children and their families.  You talk to us about your commitment and understanding of how we all play a part in fostering a strong and robust safeguarding culture. 


You’ll share your strengths with us and tell us what motivates you.  We will talk about the times you made mistakes - but learnt from them and we’ll celebrate the things you’re most proud of. 


The interview would almost definitely run over time due to us discussing all the exciting things you can bring to the role and what possibilities lie ahead. Before we said goodbye, we’d tell you all about the BRILL perks of working as a Practitioner and being a part of our team at Grosvenor House. 


We want to leave you feeling excited about your future should you got the opportunity to join us. 


Apply and let’s make this a reality!
