Nurseries looking for temporary and permanent staff


Butterfly Personnel is Edinburgh’s largest Nursery Agency and has been working with a variety of nurseries since 1997.  All our Nursery Nurses are experienced with all age groups.

We understand that it can be difficult to find a temporary member of staff at the last moment just for a few hours to a few months cover, we’ll supply someone who has undergone our interview process, been reference and certificates checked and of course holds a PVG and SSSC certificate

It’s why our office is open and staffed from 6am till 11pm each day, so you can speak to someone when you need help most. 

We have over 100 personnel who go on placements each day.  So if you are looking to book a temporary Nursery Nurse a week in advance or on the day, you can call us on 031 657 5407 from 6am to 11pm, Monday – Sunday.

The sooner we know, then we can help you.  So if you find that a permanent member of staff is ill the night before or on the day, then just call and we will be able to tell you there and then who will be able to cover for them.

All our Nursery Nurses are on our payroll and we deal with their tax, national insurance, holiday pay and pension.  Due to new legislation demands that all temporary nursery nurses must be covered by the agency’s payroll including tax, national insurance, holiday pay and pension.  This gives you greater piece of mind for your business.


From finding one person to a whole team for a new room, we take the hassle out of sourcing your permanent candidates. Our recruitment process is unique in finding the right person for you.  You can also advertise free of charge on our website. For more information call 0131 657 5407
