Working at Zein is definitely more of a vocation than a job – it just offers so much more satisfaction than I imagined “work” ever would…

Comments like the one above are not unusual at Zein International Childcare, as we make it part of our mission to ensure that our staff are just as much part of our family as the children in our care.

At Zein we set the bar high. When we take on new staff, we look for more than people who just “like working with children”. We seek out enthusiastic and dedicated individuals who have a passion for teaching, developing and caring for children. Open minded, emotionally intelligent people who are able to share and deliver the Zein vision and help us truly ‘Set the Standard’ in International Childcare.

All new members of Zein undergo a detailed induction and training programme so that they learn to understand the difference between our approach and that of other organisations where they may have worked in the past.  The Zein Academy Staff Training Programme is made up of a combination of lectures, interactive workshops and on the job application of knowledge. This in-depth programme looks at the specific needs of Third Culture Kids (TCKs) as well as the practical application of the Zein approach in the workplace.

We believe in the concept of lifelong learning, and invest time and energy into ensuring that all our staff feel happy and confident about their role. From experience we know that new staff find the programme interesting and stimulating and that they grow in their pedagogical knowledge and approach as a result.

An international mix

One of the things that sets Zein apart from other childcare providers is the truly international mix of our staff. We believe that the best way to serve our diverse community is by ensuring that the people working for us reflect the same level of diversity themselves.

This approach is about more than just the mother tongue language a colleague may speak, or the passport they hold. It is about their ability to empathise with the experiences and challenges faced by internationally mobile children and families. It is about their ability to use their own cultural experiences and background to add a richness to the care they provide.

New career opportunities

Finding diverse, committed and highly qualified staff is one of our top priorities. Due to continued expansion we now have a range of exciting career opportunities available.
