Life Sciences Research for Lifelong Health

Nursery Cook (Part Time - 20.5 hours)


The Babraham Institute is a charity which is world renowned for its research in life sciences to enhance lives and improve wellbeing.
Babraham Nursery was opened in September 1990 and operates from a large house situated in a quiet corner of a residential area in the grounds of the Institute. It has a large enclosed garden with climbing frame, pathways and grassed areas. It accommodates up to a total of ninety children on the Early Years register aged from 6 weeks to 5 years throughout the year and operates a separate holiday club for school aged children during the holidays at the local school.
There is a large team of Nursery Nurses and Nursery Assistants who care for the children as well as staff who provide the meals and administrative support.  A Senior Nursery Nurse leads each of the four base rooms supported by the Deputy Managers and Manager.  We also have two cleaners who carry out regular daily cleaning. The Nursery is open all year round except for Bank Holidays and a one-week closure during the Christmas period.
