Fabulous opportunity for a fabulous centre manager! Don't miss this chance to be part of something special in the wonderful Waikanae community...

Our cherished centre manager has taken on another opportunity within BestStart and now we are looking for a special leader to take over the reins. We are a community within a community where everyone is seen as a teacher and a learner. With our vision of 'Sustainable Learning for Life' we are very lucky to have a large, natural playground with trees to climb, plenty of room to run around – and we even have chickens in the backyard!

We’re now looking for a passionate centre manager to be at the heart of the centre; inspiring, motivating and supporting our team to continue the incredible work they do each day. This role will see you utilise your outstanding leadership skills to be responsible for the smooth day-to-day operation of the centre.

We’ll provide you with a strong induction and ongoing support from a business manager around business and staffing aspects as well as a professional services manager for the compliance and curriculum aspects.

Our new centre manager will bring:

  • BEd/Dip Tch (ECE) Level 7 and current teacher registration
  • Strengths in curriculum, assessment and evaluation
  • Proven success working in a management or supervision position
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • Ability to promote the centre to the local community.

We know how valuable good leaders are. Your hard work and commitment will be rewarded with a competitive salary package, free healthcare, subsidised childcare and fantastic career benefits, including leadership and training ongoing PLD opportunities.
