Childcare and Education

Childcare workers have the opportunity to impact children for the rest of their lives! Could this be you?

Organisations that advertise jobs in the childcare and education sector include nurseries, primary schools and secondary schools. Swindon Borough Council, Wiltshire Council and school academy trusts regularly advertise a variety of childcare and education positions. There are many nurseries in Swindon and Wiltshire. Some operate from a single location while others are part of national companies like Busy Bees.
Are you interested in a career working with young children? If so, the Childcare sector could be for you! Many people working with children do not consider it a job but see it as an opportunity to make a difference to a child’s life.
Enthusiasm and communication skills are the top two common skills employers request in job adverts in this sector.
