by: Amelia Reeves-Tibbs, Tinies Essex


The Story

This Tinies childcarer is a university student currently pursuing her teaching degree and was looking for some flexible work that would fit around her studies. 

The Challenge

She was desperately seeking work that would fit around her studies. While searching on Indeed, she found that most roles were not suitable for her needs. Then she discovered Tinies Temps, which offered the flexibility she was looking for. 

Why Tinies?

This Tinies childcarer chose to work with Tinies Temps for the flexibility she needed. This job allows her to close off her availability when she has important assignments due, so she doesn’t have to worry about fulfilling any contracted hours. During quieter months and school holidays, she can open her availability and accept more work. This balance helps her manage her studies and workload effectively, ensuring she can prioritise her education while gaining valuable work experience. 

The Solution

Upon receiving the childcarer’s CV, the Tinies Essex consultant promptly reached out to her to schedule a convenient time for a thorough registration process. During this meeting, the Tinies Consultant took the time to understand the childcarer’s needs as an agency worker, including her general availability for work, salary expectations, and the areas where she would feel comfortable traveling to for assignments. 

Tinies then guided the childcarer through the second stage of registration, which involved contacting her references, verifying her right to work and qualifications, and checking her DBS. Throughout this process, the consultant maintained open communication, providing the childcarer with regular updates on the progress of her application. This transparent approach ensured that the childcarer felt supported and informed every step of the way, creating a positive and reassuring experience as she prepared to join the Tinies agency. 

This childcarer has been with Tinies Temps for several months, still receiving support from the Tinies Essex consultant, who books her nursery shifts as needed. They maintain open communication about the settings the childcarer prefers, ensuring she can return to those nurseries when staff is needed, and it fits her schedule. the childcarer shared her feedback, saying, “The registration process was straightforward, and the team was amazing. They were supportive in accommodating my needs, and Tinies was fantastic at finding local work. It’s an amazing company to work with, and I have nothing but praise for the company and its people.”
