Nursery Manager

Salary: £32,000 to £40,000 FTE depending upon experience and qualifications + benefits

Location: Our current nursery sites are based in Fenham, Cramlington and Bedlington. We have another two new sites planned for the next 18 months.


Are you an angel in disguise, looking to spread some heavenly light to our team of hard working early years educators? Do you have a knack for making miracles happen and bringing smiles to your team? Are you a champion for your team? If so, you might just be our next manager at Little Angels! We’re looking for a manager who will model and champion our company’s core values.

What we can offer you:

  • 100% discounted childcare
  • Health and wellbeing package (this includes free physiotherapy, counselling, weight loss, nurse support, menopause support, GP and video consultations, stress awareness sessions, health screening days)
  • Company pension
  • Enhanced maternity/paternity leave
  • Free lunches when at nursery
  • FTE 28 days paid holiday (includes bank holidays.) An unpaid holiday scheme is provided for long service after two years rising to 33 days a year. An additional 4 days are allocated at the end of every quarter if you have full attendance at work.

This is not the Nursery Manager role for you if: 

  • You’re content to let your team make the same diwali lamps and Christmas cards each year – You’re someone who can’t live without a photocopier
  • Your idea of inclusion is a corner in a room
  • You don’t have a warm, smiling face
  • You’re happy to leave your setting without a thought for the next day
  • You won’t wear ‘dress up’ with pride
  • You avoid making difficult decisions
  • Our plans for growth don’t light a fire in your belly

This is the perfect Nursery Manager role for you if: 

  • Putting children first can sometimes mean difficult conversations
  • You help to make every child and staff feel special and loved
  • You enjoy running your own show
  • You’re okay to admit if you’re wrong and can work with your team to fix it
  • You’re able to sing out of tune in front of a crowd
  • You enjoy steering the ship
  • You’re an absolute stickler for quality control
  • You wear your heart on your sleeve

Please note, knowledge of Frozen, Minions, Marvel superheroes, Disney Princesses and Peppa Pig is essential.

To be a manager of our amazing team of early years educators, we will also need you to have excellent organisational skills and an ability to prioritise.

You will demonstrate unwavering commitment to our children and their families, to our company and its objectives, and to the people you manage and empower to achieve.

If you are ambitious, forward thinking, eager for new experiences and opportunities to help drive our exciting plans for growth and expansion – we’d very much like to meet you.
