At tiney we're building a brand new childcare experience that accelerates children's development, empowers educators to set up their own business and provides parents with accessible trusted childcare. We've now trained and set up more than 100 tiney homes and are continuing to grow fast, even during a pandemic. Here's a recent article in The Guardian about where we are now.

Over 2020, in the midst of a global pandemic, we've grown our internal tiney team from 15 to over 40 and our big ambitions mean that we'll continue hiring talented, motivated people for the foreseeable future. We want to go the extra mile to make sure that every applicant to every job feels valued, listened to, respected and never wavers in their support for tiney, whatever the outcome of their application. Applying for roles is a frustrating and nerve wracking experience, but it really doesn't need to be - this is where you come in.

You'll be the second person to join our People team; you'll be focusing on giving all our job applicants a positive experience, you'll move mountains in the background to make it an effortless and pleasant process for candidates and will make our hiring processes run like clockwork.

💜 Our commitment to diversity

A child who wants to learn doesn’t care about gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, or any of the other things that sometimes divide, and neither do we. We hire people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes us stronger and gives us all a better chance of unlocking the potential of every child.

We have a wonderful internal Diversity and Inclusion Advisor, Taz who's our critical friend, she's making sure we're creating the most inclusive and fair recruitment process. Again, we aren't perfect but want/need to be better.

🎉 We're looking forward to getting to know you better!
