Freckles Childcare have been working with Bath Spa since 2015. Here’s what they had to say about recruiting part-time staff through our Job Shop.
Why did you get involved with Bath Spa University and what was the outcome?
We started working with Bath Spa in order to advertise part-time jobs through the Job Shop. It's great to have connections within the area – for both recruiting students into part-time work and business connections. Thanks to Bath Spa, we secured a final-year student a fantastic role working with a family of five. She loves it and they love her – she’s going to continue to work with them as she goes on to study a Master's degree.
What are the tangible benefits for the business and the student?
Working with the university means that we find amazing candidates jobs with awesome families, and therefore solve childcare problems for families. The students’ benefit is twofold. First, it's financial – they're able to support themselves throughout their education by doing a job they love. Secondly, they learn incredible life skills about juggling family time, running a home, and caring for children.
