Job Description

New Directions are currently recruiting for two Teaching Assistant positions for a local Primary School on the Wirral.

Both positions will be in their Early Years (EYFS) setting and are full-time, however the school is happy for part-time job shares. The positions start after the October half term break and will be running until the end of the summer term. There is scope for the position to continue next September.

Experience in either a nursery or classroom setting is ideal, however, we are interested in hearing from anyone with experience working with children. This is a great opportunity to either get started in education, or work towards a permanent position within a school.

We can offer:

  • Competitive daily pay rate
  • Sociable working hours
  • Holiday pay schemes
  • Access to free online and in-person training
  • A fulfilling position supporting children
