Southampton, Hampshire
Salary: £9.10 to £9.20 /hour

We are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated Early Years Assistants to work on a SUPPLY basis across a variety of day nurseries in Southampton, Hampshire. We can offer both part time and full time hours to suit you.

As a member of our supply team you can be offered as little as a couple of hours a week, right up to 5 full days. This is taking in to account your availability and flexibility and you can manage this online at the click of a button!

We work with a selection of lovely day nurseries ranging from private organisations to school based nurseries, including preschools. So, as long as you have experience of working with children aged 0-5 years, we want to hear from you.


  • As a member of supply staff you will be required to support the children in your care whilst following their routines as closely as possible
  • Work closely with nursery staff and follow their guidance, ensuring that you ask questions if you are unsure about anything
  • Assist with snack and lunch times in each setting
  • Help to clean and tidy the settings, as required
  • Have lots of fun with the children!

Qualifications and Skills

Ideally applicants will hold a qualification in Early Years childcare, however this isn’t essential for supply work. Instead we ask that you have at least 6 months experience of working with children aged 0-5 years and you are enthusiastic about working in childcare.


  • Working with Simply Supply on a temporary basis we pay our Early Years Assistants £9.20 per hour
  • We provide a free weekly payroll service
  • Online timesheets and payslips and the opportunity to update your availability online!
  • We offer work in many settings that are easily accessible via public transport
  • Candidates have the opportunity to return to the same nurseries (particularly if you request them as a preferred nursery) as this helps with continuity for the children and gives you the opportunity to become part of a team
  • We just ask that you are always professional in your approach to work, follow the guidance of the staff at the nursery and… have lots of fun!
