Working at Busy Bees

Busy Bees is a fantastic place to work. While we've grown to become the UK's leading nursery group, we were founded by three families looking for better, more enriching childcare, and three decades later we still hold the same values at heart.

We love to hear from skilled, ambitious people who can help us give children the best start in life, and not just in our nurseries. Busy Bees is a big organisation, so while we're always looking for new nursery practitioners/educators, nursery managers, and kitchen staff, we also have lots of opportunities in our National Support Centre too. Take a look at our current vacancies to get started.

Opportunities for everyone

We believe passionately in equal opportunities at Busy Bees. We welcome applications from everyone, whoever you are and whatever your background. We also offer childcare apprenticeships, which are a great way to learn while you earn.
