How we work to find the childcare job you want
We are an established childcare agency with longstanding relationships with hundreds of childcare facilities and social service departments. We actively seek out the kind of job that is right for you and only put you forward for posts which match your requirements. We have been successfully placing childcare employees for over 20 years and have built up a high industry profile throughout the central south area of England. This means we have access to a very wide range of childcare vacancies.
If you are currently looking for work in Guildford, please contact us and arrange a meeting so that we can get to know you, your work experience, job preferences and aspirations and start to seek out the ideal position for you.
The difference between temporary and permanent childcare positionsTemp work
The term "temp" work is often misunderstood because this type of work may not necessarily be temporary! For many years, a number of our staff members have chosen to work as temps (some even for decades!). Don't assume that temp work is part time because full time hours are the norm.
As a temp worker, or more commonly known as an agency worker or supply worker, Careline Agency would offer you weekly employment to suit you and your wages would be paid direct by us. Once you have been cleared, you would be eligible to work at a large number of nurseries and with families who requre temporary support.
Working as a temp gives you greater flexibility and you can specify the hours you want to work and which employers you prefer to work for. You might like to work at a variety of different workplaces, but in practice we find that many of our temps become valued regulars at a small number of establishments, or often they take long term placements. You will still be entitled to holiday pay and have access to the same workplace facilities as the directly employed childcare workers that work alongside you.
Whether you are looking to broaden your childcare experience, or just looking for variety, make temping with Careline your career choice. You will be a highly valued team member, earn leading rates within the industry and receive your pay reliably into your account at the end of each week.
We find that many of our temps are offered permanent positions where they are temping, so this could be a good way to "try" out a job and see if it is right for you.
Once we have assessed your job requirements, objectives and preferences, we will use our extensive employer network to introduce you to employers in the Guildford area with permanent vacancies at day nurseries and social services as well as families looking for a nanny.
If you then accept a job offer you will be employed directly by that employer. There is no cost to you - our fees are paid by the employer.
We have both full-time and part-time permanent positions as
- Nursery Mangers
- Deputy Mangers
- Qualified Nursery Nurses
- Unqualified but Experienced Nursery Nurses
- Assistant Nursery Nurses
- Senior Nursery Nurses
- Night Nannies
- Mother's Help
- Maternity Nurses
