What makes JBD different for nursery recruitment?

Understanding the specialist needs of nursery recruitment

JBD are an established early year’s agency offering nurseries and childcare settings a bespoke service. Our reputation is first class and we pride ourselves on our dynamic, forward thinking and friendly approach to childcare.

We recruit to the highest standard and all our candidates are personally interviewed by our consultants, fully vetted, reference checked, with a clean enhanced DBS. Our candidates are experienced, have  a passion for childcare, relevant  qualifications and are assessed on current EYFS guidelines.  With many years’ experience of working within the nursery sector, we understand that safeguarding is a number one priority.

We actively encourage our candidates to look at professional development, to refresh good childcare practice and offer our own first aid, safeguarding and food hygiene courses. 


Comprehensive vetting and screening of all candidates

The safeguarding and security of children is our number one priority and we are extremely thorough in our vetting and screening process for all candidates. All candidates are personally interviewed with identities, work experience, qualifications, DBS status and references all fully checked and reviewed before we recommend them for placement in your nursery.
