DfE request on advertising your job vacancies, ahead of the National Early Years and Childcare Recruitment Campaign

Jan 31 2024

There’s not long to go until the launch of the Department for Education’s early years recruitment campaign. The aim of the campaign is to promote early years and childcare careers by highlighting the huge difference early years professionals make to young children and how rewarding working in the sector can be. The campaign, with its own dedicated website, will direct potential applicants to use DWP’s Find a Job vacancy platform to search for early years, childcare and wraparound roles in their area.

The DfE are asking for your support to list your job vacancies on Find a Job ahead of the campaign launch. Please click here to download additional information which will help you to create an account and post any current or upcoming jobs in your setting. You will need to use the term ‘early years’ in the title of your job adverts and select ‘Education jobs’ for the job category.

Since the January opening of the registration process for the expanded entitlements offer, DfE have seen a high level of demand from parents. This service is free to use and will ensure vacancies are seen by a large pool of potential candidates.
