Who are we?
Created by a nursery manager who understands the employment challenges for male teachers in nurseries and schools, Male Childcare and Teaching Jobs aims to support both male candidates and gender-inclusive employers in finding each other and reaching their full potential.
Our vision is to raise awareness of gender stereotypes and tackle male underrepresentation in childcare and education settings.
We believe such a site is essential after working in many educational settings, where employers, members of staff and parents increasingly call for more male teachers and early years practitioners. According to recent research, only 18% of people working in education are male. This could further expose children and young people to gender stereotypes and have a negative impact on the way educational settings promote British Values.
Because of men representing such a minority within the education sector, Male Childcare and Teaching Jobs are here to help employers connect with the talented male candidates which are hard to find. Furthermore, we strive to pave the way for future male generations to opt for a career in childcare and education.
Male Childcare and Teaching Jobs aims to increase male representation in childcare and education settings up to 40% by 2028.
How we do it
Our partnerships with universities, colleges, training providers and recruiters allow thousands of male job seekers to visit our site and find the perfect employment opportunity for them!
Finding the right candidate does not have to be expensive! Posting jobs on our website is a cheaper alternative to recruitment agencies.
Additionally, when you advertise on Male Childcare and Teaching Jobs, you communicate to candidates that your setting is developing a culture of inclusion, which encourages male job seekers to apply, helping to build diversity in the workplace.
