More than just a career…

Join the nest

Nido is a place where everyone feels a sense of belonging and is empowered and motivated to deliver an exceptional education to children. Partnering with our families, we give children a voice and provide everyone, from all walks of life, the opportunity to lead wonderfully fulfilling lives.

There is something very different about working for Nido that really sets us apart from other education and care providers. It’s not always obvious from the outside, but when you’re welcomed into the Nido family, you feel it instantly. Far and wide across Australia, we inspire and challenge each other as one team. At Nido, you have the opportunity to make your mark in the world and are given the respect and autonomy to do what you love and really make a difference. Everyone is treated from day one as a valued, competent part of the team and who is supported and encouraged every single day.

We hire only the best of the best in the sector and in return, ensure they have the very best working experience and career development.
