About N Family Club
At N Family Club, we are rethinking careers in early years and challenging the way things are done in the sector.
We know that you do the most important job in the world, and it's a job that can be tiring and involves superhero levels of energy and enthusiasm. We believe that you deserve more respect and to be paid fairly for the valuable job you do - all in a fun work environment that supports your wellbeing!
We are a diverse and inclusive workforce and everyone is welcome at N. Our teams are made up of like-minded people who share a real passion for what we are trying to achieve, and are rewarded for helping us get there. We have a wonderful culture underpinned by warmth and belonging and we are obsessed with team happiness and are always thinking about how we can improve for our people.
We are a growing business (from only one nursery in 2017, we now have 17 and a whole lot more on the horizon!) so we also have great opportunities for progression.
We empower our teams to reach their full potential and we support them with a mix of development initiatives and an unparalleled learning environment through our very own N Academy . The academy is focused on providing exciting and inspiring learning opportunities, taking a 'blended' approach with a mix of webinars, face-to-face workshops, manager coaching and experiential learning. You may decide to go down a leadership route or to specialise and become an expert in something that truly inspires you. You will be in the driving seat with your learning, and supported to work towards your career goals through regular meetings and performance reviews.
We pay the top salaries in the industry (above living wage), we provide you with the flexibility you need to achieve your work-life balance, and this year we have created a second-to-none benefit package to recognise your work, to support your personal and professional development and your wellbeing.
