Apply for an apprenticeship

More and more settings are taking on apprentices as they look to train the next generation of chidcarers. If you're interested in looking for a childcare apprenticeship in your area, contact Tinies Training.

Gain experience with a Mother's Help job

If you're a newly qualified nanny, often the best and most rewarding alternative to a sole charge nanny job, is to look for a Mother's Help job.

With the right family you'll be fulfilling exactly the same role as a nanny and you can have the added advantage of companionship with the mother. As time goes on in the job, you will often have periods of sole charge to build up your experience of working on your own with children.

Nursery jobs when newly qualified

You might prefer to build up some experience by finding a nursery job.

Tinies has very strong links with a number of nurseries, plus we run our own nurseries throughout the UK. We're happy to recommend  nurseries that will look after you in your new career.

Holiday club jobs when starting out

An excellent alternative for a newly qualified childcarer, is working as a children's rep with a holiday company, such as Thomson, First Choice or Mark Warner.

Tinies also runs its own fun Kids Clubs nationwide. As a newly qualified childcarer, by signing up with your local agency, we'll be able to discuss which jobs in childcare would best suit you.

We have worked with Tinies Brighton for a number of years when looking for both temporary and permanent nursery staff. What impresses us most about Tinies Brighton is the way in which they always ensure that they understand our requirements, whether the position is for an entry level childcare practitioner in a 25 place nursery or a nursery manager at a 120 place nursery. Tinies has developed a thorough knowledge of our business and our culture and only ever puts forward applicants who fit our specification, thus saving our business a significant amount of time and cost by not having to interview candidates who are unsuitable. We would thoroughly recommend Tinies Brighton to any childcare business in the area.
