Looking for staff?


Call your local branch, provide us with some information about your setting, and tell us the dates and times that you need.



Early Years Settings

Headline has been supporting Early Years Settings with their staffing for over 25 years.


We currently supply staff to Day Nurseries, Nursery Schools, Preschools, Children’s Centres and Childminders – basically anywhere you might find an under five! We know that ideally you would have no need for supply staff, but we also know how difficult it can be to find qualified and experienced staff for your setting. Our aim is to provide a friendly, professional and trustworthy service, to hopefully relieve the pressures that can come with recruitments. We have a wonderful team of both qualified Nursery Nurses and unqualified Nursery Assistants, all of whom are experienced working with children aged 0 – 5 years.


What makes Headline different is that we have a host of EY specialists working across all branches, including ex Nursery Managers and Nursery Nurses. Having worked in the sector we are well aware that agency staff can have a bad rep in your settings – with lots of agencies just putting a “body” in the room to make up numbers and keep you in ratio. We know how frustrating that can be, and so we work tirelessly to ensure that the staff that we provide to you are suitably qualified (if required) and experienced – and have a “can do” attitude. We expect all of our Early Years staff to be happy to jump straight in, use their initiative, join the story corner and start on “Room on the Broom”.


Some of our settings use us for sporadic cover – covering staff sickness or annual leave. Others use us for multiple staff each and every day, to cover gaps in their rotas where they haven’t been able to recruit. Whether you have lots of cover or the odd day here and there, we will always endeavour to keep your staffing consistent – so that you have familiar faces coming to you each time you book. You also always have the option to request your favourites to come back and our staff will soon become “honorary members” of your team.


Book in advance or take advantage of our last-minute booking option for those mornings when the sickness line is ringing non-stop. All you need to do is call your local branch, provide us with some information about your setting, and tell us the dates and times that you need. It really is that simple!

"As a busy nursery it is so important to us to have consistency and an agency that understands our needs. Headline certainly do their best to ensure we have the same staff cover and staff that suit the needs of the nursery.  The staff that come are proactive, professional and supportive which is perfect when you are in need of cover at short notice. As a nursery we have been using Headline for around ten years and our experience is a very positive one. We look forward to continuing working with them in the future."
