Current Vacancies

Relievers Needed

We are in need of some super star relievers (unqualified and qualified) to complement our teaching teams here at Massey Child Care Centre, Palmerston North.

This is a casual on-call employment arrangement allowing flexibility for both you and us.
As a reliever, you would be an integral part of the success of our day-to-day operations. You would need to be highly motivated, have outstanding communication skills, enjoy working alongside children and excited to learn new skills and grow understandings while working amongst supportive and innovative teaching teams.

We have four sections, working with children aged birth to 6 years old, so plenty of opportunity to work across our different centres and age groups. We have 30 permanent staff and cater for over 200 families so no two days will ever be the same.

Experience is preferred, but not essential. Passion however is a must.
All relievers are required to give permission for a NZ Police check and this process can take up to 4 weeks to complete. Only once this is done can you be become available for relieving work.
