Job Requirements/Description

Hours Per Week: 22

Working at CrossReach is so much more than a job. It is an opportunity to become part of a committed, creative and compassionate team, delivering therapeutic services that make a life-changing difference to the lives of infants, children, young people and adults across Scotland. 

We are looking for a warm and friendly team player to join us on a part time basis as a Creche Worker for our child focused Perinatal Creches in Edinburgh. Our specialist Parent and Infant Relationship Supports (PAIRS) Creches reduces the barriers families may face when accessing perinatal counselling sessions. We provide a variety of additional supports to build parenting confidence, reduce separation anxiety and encourage parent-infant bonding.   

Working 22 hours per week across 4 days (Monday-Thursday), you will provide a welcoming, safe, secure and stimulating space for the babies and children who are in your care. You will support and nurture each child you look after, tailoring your approach to each individual child and their needs. 

We will expect you to work to the highest professional standards to ensure that quality standards are met and that the voice of the infant as at the core of what you do. You will also need excellent communication skills as you will be required to engage with parents in a sensitive and understanding manner, to support their emotional wellbeing. 

You will be joining a great team, so we need you to be able to work in collaboration with them to ensure the potential of the creche is maximised and that the infants in the creche are well looked after. 

Ideally you will have a minimum of an HNC/SCQF 7 in Childcare or equivalent qualification, but if you don’t a willingness to work towards a relevant qualification is vital. Other social care qualifications may also be suitable and will be considered. If you have some experience working with babies and young children that would be beneficial, but what is most important is that you are passionate about delivering great care every day to our very special visitors. 

We also offer you a range of benefits that you would expect from an organisation that support others.

Firstly, there is access to a wide range of exclusive retail and leisure discounts through our rewards scheme and the Blue Light Discount card. We also ensure that your future and that of your loved ones is secured with a generous contributory pension plan and death in service benefit. Balancing work and family are made easier with our suite of enhanced family friendly policies and your health and wellness are prioritised with access to our health cash plan, giving you cash back for a wide range of health treatments. We even have access to a care concierge service to assist you with life's challenges, providing invaluable support when you need it most.

But we also know that your training and development is important to you, and as well as a contribution to your professional membership fees, we are keen to support you in making the right steps to learn, grow and develop in ways that are right for you.
