Working for us
Thank you for considering working for Greyfriars Ministries. The shared objective of everyone at GML is to keep the children we care for safe and to provide them with the best possible childcare. We are therefore committed to thorough and safer recruitment.
We believe that having the right person in the right role is key for a happy, professional and effective team. Getting this right allows our staff to focus on our number one priority – the children who attend our nurseries; making sure they are happy, safe, secure, stimulated and fulfilled. In a recent staff survey, comments were:
‘I enjoy seeing the children grown and develop’
‘I love my job and the freedom I have to fulfil my role’
‘The team I work with are friendly and helpful’
‘It’s been great doing my qualification; my assessor was always around to give me help when I needed it and I found the workshops really useful’
‘It’s lovely how the company has its own in house training so staff can complete their qualifications on site’
‘Such a good company to work for – not only is there a passion to provide excellent child care but staff are appreciated, recognised and encouraged to fulfil their potential’
‘Best company I’ve worked for… I love my job!’
