Looking for a role where every day is different? Where you can bring a smile to children’s faces and help prepare them for the big wide world? You’ll be there as their educator of course, but also their fairy godmother, their big bad wolf, their trusted friend and comfort when they take a tumble – helping them to get back up and encouraging them to try again. Helping them develop the foundations for years to come, instilling those first vital seeds of curiosity and wonder, all while making sure they have bags of fun, learn to make friends and enjoy their days. Why not join the thousands across the UK who choose Early Years as a career and start your own journey with us today.

Need Flexibility? You’ve Come to the Right Place!


Now more than ever, people need flexibility and understanding from their workplace. It helps to know your employer truly believes in supporting this through flexible working opportunities. At Bright Horizons, we are always striving to give our people the best possible work-life balance, because we know we all have busy lives.

​​​​​​​Life is unpredictable, but one thing you can be sure of is the freedom to choose how and when you work, so that your life works too. Depending on your role, flexible options can range from part-time, term-time, job sharing and variable hours. We’ll also be there to support you through the big moments in your life, from parental leave to career breaks.

Giving Back & Making a Difference

Our registered charity, the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children forms an integral part of our culture and team events. Colleagues can help raise funds and awareness for this incredibly important cause, helping improve the quality of life for children and families in crisis through the creation of our nurturing and safe environments - ‘Bright Spaces’. Whatever you’re able to do, from fundraising to practical support, you’ll be able to make a real difference in a way that works for you and helps the most vulnerable little ones in our world.
