Why work for us?

At Mucky Pups we offer various shifts throughout the week on an 8 hour day shift. The hours are generally 40 hours per week and you would need to be flexible between the hours of 7am and 6.30pm. We currently open until 6pm but if the need arose we would stay open until 6.30pm. We close for all bank holidays and during the Christmas period from the 23rd December so our staff get to enjoy the magic of Christmas Eve as well as Christmas day and Boxing day.

During non Covid times the nursery has a weekly visit to Gravity where the children have an hours bounce. This is something the staff love to take part in. Not only is it great for the children but the staff get a great mid day exercise session in too if the wish. We take the children on walks to the local parks and around the surrounding community. We also try to get at least one trip out per year to a zoo, farm or theme park. 

When working for us you would benefit from 32.5 days holiday entitlement (including bank holidays), and we increase the holiday entitlement the longer you are with us. A works pension and a performance based voucher scheme. We also offer discounted childcare if you required it
