PACEY – #ChangedALife – supporting recruitment in the early years and childcare sector

This digital campaign launched recently by PACEY aims to showcase the impact that a professional has on a child and the opportunity this sector creates for people to start their own business, build skills, become part of a team and enjoy a varied and rewarding career path.

Careers in Childcare

Working in the childcare sector can be challenging but also extremely rewarding.  Some of the benefits include having the opportunity to teach something new to children and seeing them develop from babies to young people. You will build amazing relationships and have the opportunity to earn money from doing something you enjoy.   The hours can be really flexible and the joy of seeing children’s faces when they have achieved a new skill is priceless.

Reasons to work in childcare:
1. The opportunity to teach something new.
2. Seeing children develop from babies to young people.
3. Build relationships.
4. A chance to earn money from doing something you enjoy.
5. Flexible hours to fit in around family commitments.
6. Seeing the children’s faces when they have achieved a
new skill.
