We love advertising for roles that are soon to be vacated due to an exciting internal promotion! What a great opportunity to get involved in – assistant manager.

We have an amazing, supportive centre manager who is known to take students under her wing and encourage them to become wonderful, successful ECE teachers. You will be our centre manager's main support within the centre, so you will work closely alongside them – they will be your biggest champion. 

This is a great opportunity for an experienced head teacher/team leader who is keen to learn the ropes in preparation for a solid and smooth transition to a centre manager position. 

  • Assist with planning and review the centre's strategic plan
  • Provide management support to the centre manager and step up in the absence of the centre manager 
  • Ensure the curriculum is consistent with organisation philosophy, vision and values
  • Develop and sustain relationships with families and the wider community
  • Role model quality teaching practice and lead the team on a path of continuous improvement.

Key skills and experience:

  • Hold an ECE teacher qualification valid in New Zealand and hold valid registration 
  • Must be passionate, caring, and committed to education
  • Demonstrate commitment to continuous learning and professional practice
  • Fantastic time management and an understanding that paperwork has to be done!
  • Leadership experience – you will have to lead and mentor your teachers so you must have a knack for building trust in relationships and dealing with any issues that may arise.

We are very open to have an informal chat and a centre visit for you to get a feel of the centre and the opportunity before fully committing. It is a big role so we need to ensure that the fit is right for all.
