More about nursery staff recruitment
With over 15 years’ experience in early years childcare recruitment, we fully understand the cost of hiring and the need to budget this cost in. We consider all aspects of the client/candidate fit – a candidate must be relevantly qualified and experienced, but also be personable with great communication skills. We don’t stick to a script, we get to know the candidate and ascertain the best fit possible.
Having a reliable and trustworthy team that puts the safety and happiness of the children first is integral to your business. We only work with early years childcare professionals who are passionate about working in the childcare industry. We offer a full wrap around service including hosting your vacancy on our job board, evaluating CVs and selecting those with the right fit, screening candidates, organising interviews and checking references.

I have been delighted with the service provided by the Purple Dove Team – Shama has taken all the stress out of the recruitment process, and in a very short time I have ended up with an excellent NURSERY MANAGER. What I found really good about Shama is that she is honest, very professional and understands the needs and provides only suitable candidates for the role. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND PURPLE DOVE AND WILL BE WORKING WITH SHAMA AND HER TEAM IN THE FUTURE.
