Salary: NZD50000 - NZD70000 per annum
You know how a centre programme works and now you’re ready to take charge of it.


•  Great Centres…

•  Awesome teachers and team

•  Investment in you and your career


Where to next? It’s a question that’s inevitably crosses the mind of a talented and passionate registered ECE teacher. You’ve probably already proven yourself in a leadership role, or perhaps u just know you’re more than ready for it. Whatever the case, if your career development matters to you, it matters to us too.

We know that delivering great outcomes for children and families can’t happen without the skills, experience and a genuine love of working with young learners that you possess. We also know, that just like our children, you need to stay engaged, stimulated, and be given opportunities to grow and develop.

We can give you that, with 117 early learning centres around the country and a dedicated team of over 2,000 people. We offer a real career pathway and the support and mentoring you need to achieve your potential.

Join us as a team leader and you’ll inject your passion for teaching into the overall operation of the centre programme, implementing and modelling best practice as well as inspiring, encouraging and developing your team. This role is about relationship building. That means   getting to know and understanding the needs of those whose lives you touch. There’s also scope to step into the centre manager’s shoes from time-to-time.

Your warm, engaging personality and natural ability to nurture and mentor others, will ideally be complemented by proven leadership experience or clear potential to step up. Qualified and fully registered as an ECE teacher, you’ll stand out with your positive energy and desire to keep learning.

Our benefits reflect how important you are to us, and we have a range of these -from birthday leave through to discounted medical insurance, childcare fees at our centres and retail discount offers for our people.  

Make an extraordinary difference in the lives of New Zealand’s youngest learners and their families while enjoying more investment in you, by contacting Annie O’Keefe today.
