Bright Start

Flexible working that fits around your lifestyle

Every day we provide flexibility to the care we provide to families, and we want to extend that flexibility to you.

Whether you are looking for a full-time role, or would like extra time outside of work to spend with your family, we are committed to work with you in achieving your ideal work-life balance.

To make this possible, you will have access to initiatives unique to Bright Horizons. Including permanent part-time hours, meaning you can lock in the amount of part-time hours you need each week. As well as working 5 days in 4, which is exactly what it says on the tin. You can still work full-time, however if you want that extra day every week to spend studying or with your family then you can incorporate these hours into 4 days.

What is Bright Start?

Bright Start is a programme unique to Bright Horizons where you can work the hours you want, at a number of nurseries close to you.

How does it work?

You will join a talented team of people as passionate as you and enjoy the style of work you want, with:

Complete Flexibility– You will have the freedom to decide how many hours you want to work, at a number of nurseries within an hour’s commute from your home. You will also know your work patterns well in advance by logging your availability two weeks ahead of time.

Study and Work Support– Bright Start has been designed with study in mind. So if you are undergoing tertiary education, then you can take advantage of unique working options available to fit alongside your study commitments—all while gaining professional experience.

Getting Back Into Work– We understand it can be difficult to get back into a workplace after having time off. This is why we also provide you with a variety of different work solutions if you are looking to transition back into work.

Training and Development– You will receive every opportunity to learn and grow, including an initial induction into the Bright Horizons family, Child Protection training, First Aid training and much more. This means no matter what hours you decide to work, you will receive the full training benefits we have to offer to support your professional development.
