Busy Bees believes that a highly trained and motivated workforce is at the heart of its success. The company’s dedication and commitment to developing skills encourages all staff to grow and reach their full potential, an essential part, we believe, in recruiting and retaining the best people.

We firmly believe that by recruiting for attitude we can develop and coach our staff to deliver high quality childcare to all the children in our settings and ensure that parents can see the difference.
Each year Busy Bees has a number of vacancies within its nurseries for school leavers who want to undertake a career in childcare.
