Are you ready to step up and make your mark? This unique opportunity provides you with the chance to utilise your sound leadership skills and gain valuable experience, whilst covering maternity leave. 
Our BestStart vision is to bring together children, whānau and teachers from the many cultures of our vibrant city.  

As centre manager, you’ll be responsible for ensuring that the centre operates as a high-performing centre based on quality and genuine interactions between staff, children and family.

  • An ability to set a 'big picture' direction, while making sure the day-to-day details are attended to
  • Sound business acumen and competence in IT applications and social media utilisation
  • A real vision as to what you would like to achieve as the leader of a successful centre
  • A BEd/Dip Tch Level 7 (ECE) and current certification
  • Proven recent success in an educational management or leadership position.

You will be well-supported by regular visits and communications from our area manager, with ongoing training and development opportunities within the region and nationally.
