Are There Many Jobs In Childcare?

Working in childcare is an exciting, rewarding and fulfilling career path that can take you all over the world. Not to mention the many fantastic opportunities available in a wide range of positions. The childcare industry has expanded rapidly in Australia over the past 10-years and is expected to continue by 34.8% between 2015 and 2020. This has led to a considerable jump in the number of childcare jobs available!

The demand for quality childcare workers is at an all-time high, with real opportunities for you to develop a bright and rewarding career. If you are considering working in childcare, now is the perfect time to get started!

In order to work in a childcare centre you need to be working towards a formal qualification. This means you can start work in a daycare centre as soon as you’ve enrolled in a relevant and accredited course. As such, you’ll find many daycare centres have a large number of staff who are part-way through a qualification. While those who are qualified are employed full-time and in more senior positions.

Whether you’re looking for childcare jobs in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, or further afar, finding childcare employment in Australia shouldn’t be a difficult task. Especially if you have a qualification in hand. Unlike other industries, where you need a degree and experience before you can get a foot in the door, childcare centres are always eager to employ more staff.
