Why you should work with us

We invest in our children, and we invest in our staff too. We work in a safe, creative, and supportive environment. We have developed a comprehensive Staff Learning and Development Programme, ensuring you have all the support you need to deliver the highest quality early learning.

Unlike other childcare services, StartBright is publically funded and governed by a volunteer Board of Management, and as a result, we are bound by strict professional standards. In other words, we look for the best and brightest talent out there to join our teams.

 

If you think you’ve got what it takes to be part of the StartBright team, we’d love to hear from you.
