We’ve helped NZ ECE centres find over 100,000 relief teaching and permanent positions!

There’s a reason Early Childhood Centres love using Jitbug:

Jitbug has developed a simple reliable app where Early Learning Centres can get in touch with amazing ECE relievers any time of the day - even with limited tech experience. Gone are the days where you would call an agency and anxiously hope that they will call you back.

That’s not all.

We also help Early Childhood Centres find skilled permanent staff, locally and internationally.

Whether you’re hiring an early childhood teacher, team leader, or centre management role, we support you through the hiring process.

Our ECE recruiters:

  1. Have a chat with you to understand the role
  2. Screen, interview, and present a short list of talented ECE teachers
  3. Support you for up to 3 months after your permanent teacher starts working

If you haven’t had much luck with finding staff, feel free to contact us as we’re more than happy to help you in any way we can.

Simply install the Jitbug relief teaching app or request support from our team via the form below.

Your Day as a centre manager using Jitbug

When you are looking for a relief teacher, just open the app and post a new job. Our algorithm will recommend relievers based on their location and availability. Relievers will apply and you then confirm whoever you want. After they've finished for the day, confirm their timesheet and give them a rating. It's that simple!

Portrait of Manager
Finding reliable and quality staff on short notice is a big problem within the ECE sector. It creates stress on not only the managers who have to find dependable relievers, but also the teams who have to either work with them or not at all. Luckily, I found Jitbug and with a few clicks on my mobile phone or computer, I know I will find a quality teacher without hassle, fast. If you manage or own an early childhood centre, you need Jitbug.
