Our great reputation has allowed footsteps continued expansion and as the business grows so do the opportunities for career advancement.

Through a continued commitment to staff development we ensure a solid and rewarding career path and are proud to share the following stories of two of recently promoted staff members…

Louise Humby – Nursery Manager Footsteps Fazeley


Since joining Footsteps in 2013 as a Pre School senior at Lichfield Road, I have always received high quality in-house training. Which has enabled me to complete my role to the highest of my ability.
The training Footsteps provides has always been an effective way to network with other staff from across the company, and a great opportunity to share ideas together and enhance our collective practice.
I have recently been offered a promotion to Manager of the Fazeley Footsteps nursery and I look forward to the many challenges and opportunities this position will offer me.
From a Nursery Nurse, new to the company, through to a Nursery Manager I have had a great support team behind me which enables us all to have a long and happy career at Footsteps!

Sophia Lucas – Nursery Manager Footsteps Canwell


I joined footsteps as a Nursery Nurse in May 2012, with two years’ experience working at another setting. My main reason moving to footsteps was the outstanding reputation they had, not only as child carers but also as an employer, offering exceptional opportunities for personal progression.
I was promoted to Senior Nursery Nurse and Duty Manager, I was offered support within my new role to reach my full potential – whilst attending head office training I was able to meet staff members at other settings and truly feel part of the footsteps family.
Throughout my time at footsteps, through the various staff incentive schemes I have been rewarded and recognised for my hard work.
I am proud of all the things I have achieved with footsteps over the past four years, and feel I would not have been able to succeed without the time, training and ongoing support I receive from Footsteps.
