CAREERS

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AN EXCITING CAREER PATHWAY?



WANT TO BE PART OF AN ORGANISATION WHERE NO TWO DAYS ARE THE SAME?

Then joining our family, may well be the opportunity you are looking for.  Here’s a sneak peak of how it rolls when you join the sKids Family.

Grow Awesome Kiwi Kids

You’ll be working in an environment where no two days are the same, elastics one day, building huts the next – the only constant in your day is adventure! When a child suggests an ‘out of the box idea’ you will say, ‘Yes, that’s an awesome idea, how can we help? Over time you’ll be able to watch children grow and gain confidence, to be a part of their success and to be there for them when they need you.

Compassion

Working at the grassroots of communities you come face to face with the every day struggles of kiwi families. Which is why sKids set up the Kiwi Kids Education Foundation. This is sKids very own charity, which gives back to the community in times of need.

Kids at Heart 

When you operate in a world of dragons, bionic powers and recorder debuts, you can’t help but get caught up in it all! Working with kids brings out the inner child in all of us, from the head office team to the staff on-site. It is a very special part of our sKids culture, and something we will always cherish.
