Meet our Recruitment and HR Coordinator

Angela Fisher


My name is Angela and I’m the Recruitment & HR Co-ordinator for Hungry Caterpillar Day Nurseries.

My role is to source the very best staff for our nurseries and I am always proud and excited to make that initial phone call to introduce our family run business to potential candidates and to find out more about each individual on a professional and personal level.

I love finding the perfect people to join our wonderful, friendly teams and ensuring that their journey with us is a smooth transition from that very first introductory call right through to the day they join us.

If you are passionate about providing quality Early Years Education and Care and are keen to work for a nursery group that recognises, values and rewards their staff, then I would really love to hear from you.

At Hungry Caterpillars, we respect and value the important job of preparing future generations for the challenges of the modern world.

Everyone that joins our team is an important part of our success and therefore we work hard to ensure each individual is respected, appreciated and rewarded for the great work they do.

If you are passionate about early years and supporting all children to achieve their full potential, apply to become a Hungry Caterpillar today!
