Gem’s Educational Childcare, an early childhood education centre located beautiful Queenstown, New Zealand, is setting itself apart in the ECE recruitment sector, offering highly desirable employment opportunities through their unique and well-cultivated work culture that puts their people first.

Gem’s is a natural place for kids to shine, just as it is the natural place to work. They develop and maintain culture through celebrating successes and milestones, providing professional and personal development that’s tailored to every individual, free health insurance for all permanent staff after 3 months of employment who work 20 hours per week, and much more.

Produce from the Gem’s farm is also offered throughout the year for the team to enjoy, as well as weekly staff lunches and work functions that welcome partners and families that reflect the Gem’s culture.

While Gem’s Educational Childcare provides all these and more, Queenstown itself has a lot to offer to the growing team. With spectacular scenery, a great network of cycleways, and a plethora of activities right in your backyard, Queenstown living is something to look forward to.

“I was in the foyer of one of our centres at the end of the day last Wednesday,” shares Gemma Smith, Gem’s Director. “Three of our crew were all heading off full of energy and positivity heading up Coronet Peak together for a night ski.”

Gem’s Educational Centre is looking to grow their team within the next year, and will be doubling their staff size to accommodate for two new centres that will be opening within the next 18-24 months.

While Gem’s is proving to be an amazing place to work, the early childhood sector, from an employment perspective, comes with real challenges. The demand for committed and passionate teachers is only getting higher, and Gem’s is currently undertaking a number of measures, including investigating overseas recruitment options and becoming accredited employers with Immigration NZ, to fast track employment.
