About the Post: 

Like all of us here at Barnsley Council, you care about children and their families. So you’ll relish this opportunity to play a key part in ensuring that children have access to quality early years education enabling them to achieve their potential. 

Creativity, ambition and a focus on people. That’s what matters at Barnsley Council. Our award-winning council is on an exciting journey of change. It’s all about putting local people at the heart of everything, listening to and doing good for our communities. We’re now more innovative, more efficient and provide better value for money. The changes are clear to see - from new businesses and jobs, to improving school results and to museums being recognised for their community engagement. 

Your role in our journey 

As an organised and enthusiastic individual you will assist with the care and education of children in our high quality sessional care setting adhering to all relevant policies and procedures and legislative requirements. 

You will contribute to the planning, organisation and provision of appropriate play and educational activities following children’s interests, promoting individualised learning opportunities and observing and assessing children regularly. 

What you’ll need 

Alongside an NVQ Level 3 in Childcare or equivalent qualification you will also need to evidence that you have relevant experience of working with children aged 0-5 years in an early years childcare setting. 

Your communication skills, flexible approach and flair for building relationships will really set you apart. 

Shape a better future with us 

We’re thrilled to have achieved Investors in People (IIP) Gold status for how we lead, support and develop people. Now we’d like you to be part of our success and help us take change further. Join us on our journey to a brighter future. By working together, with each other and with our communities, we can take pride in improving lives. Let’s make a better Barnsley for everyone.

Here at Barnsley, we live and work by four important values: honesty, teamwork, excellent service, and taking pride in what we do. As part of our team, you can be sure we’ll do all we can to support you in being truly excellent. You see, we prioritise learning and enabling you to achieve your potential. So we’ve created a development process that lets you grow in the way that suits you - whether that’s training to be a leader, or learning flexibly online.
