Early childhood educators, early childhood teachers, educational leaders and other early childhood education and care (ECEC) specialists have been invited to set up a profile on the innovative new job searching platform Peeps 4 U.
The brainchild of respected ECEC Teacher and consultant Carrie Rose, approved provider and leader of Excellent rated Rosie’s Early Learning, Peeps 4 U has been created with both employers and ECEC professionals in mind to help address some of the pressures currently being felt when it comes to recruitment in the sector.
Ms Rose has used her many years of experience in the sector to create a unique platform which offers a more economical way for services to find the staff they need, and for early childhood professionals to access roles which suit their individual needs.
Turning traditional recruitment on its head, and placing would be employees in the driver’s seat, Peeps 4 U lets ECEC professionals create a profile, free of charge, which allows them to select the size of the service they want to work in, their preferred age group, the quality rating of the service they would like to work for, and other important information about themselves.
Rather than spending hours searching through job websites and company listings, ECEC professionals simply create their profile, sit back, and wait to be notified about services interested in their particular skill set and availability. Essentially, using Peeps 4 U allows ECEC professionals to have jobs which suit their needs be delivered to them, overcoming the obstacles associated with more traditional job hunting methods.
Stability for children and a chance for deep professional growth
Being a passionate advocate for children, Ms Rose hopes that the new platform will not only support employers and employees to find one another, but also create some stability for children, who can become very distressed when they have a relationship with an educator who suddenly moves away because they are unhappy in their role, or are looking for a position which better suits their needs.
With many services in the sector experiencing high turnover as more and more centres open, she hopes that this platform will become a way to help educators to feel settled in their roles, where they can then grow and develop themselves as professionals while providing consistency and security to children and families.
Part time, full time, close to home or further away – Peeps 4 U quickly, simply and easily matches educators to employers in real time.
