I work in the head office of Links Childcare and I love it! The team are great, all the staff are so friendly, welcoming and approachable. It is a busy office but we all work together as part of a team and I really enjoy my role. Links provide great opportunities for career progression so I can't recommend it enough.

I am working with Links Childcare for the last 2 years and I am really enjoying it, the company provides great staff and is constantly training and developing us all which gives great opportunity’s to grow in the company Great senior management support towards the managers in the centres and from the head office are fantastic helpers too. Managers don't need to worry about the financial and office paper work part of the business which gives them the opportunity to focus in their own center daily routine staff and children' care. I have worked in different centres with LinksChilcare as they have 10 centres, the routine and policies/procedures are equal it's very easy to adapt when moving to different locations they all have the same high standards The centers are beautiful and well equipped constantly redecorated and modernized like the finger print and clock in/out system Links Childcare provides to all centre locations professional cleaners, maintenance person, chefs, school runs staff and that way the room Educarers focus on the children’s wellbeing and safety the whole time. Links Childcare head office provides great support to educarers towards the Curriculum planning where huge amount of ideas are delivered to the staff to help daily activities to the children I found it fantastic I am enjoying working at Links Childcare. I like the environment and routine.I would recommend it highly.

Awful place to work in. Your work it's not appreciated, they do not respect your hours as they are in your contract, they do not care about you as they don't mind to send you to other Crèche when they want. They are really rude with staff, that's why they're always loosing them and always hiring more and more staff that leave once again. Some of the managers and supervisors are just like your nightmare, level 8 in primary education and the supervisor tells you that your activities are not good, talking about a supervisor that has not any level related with education. They shout at you, and they are no nice, except when the parents are in front of you. When you are sick, with temperature or vomiting or even with diarrhea, they make you stay at work, they don't allow you to go, when the policy says that you have to be at home for 48h. When your relatives pass away, you have to stay at work, you do not have the right to go and stay with your family. THEY DO NOT HAVE A HEART.
Pros
None
Cons
Loads and more

I’ve worked for links for 2 years now, I started in the toddler room progressed to supervisor then to manager. I started in City West then relocated to Clonee. It was the best decision I made and Senior management made the decision easier for me. I love working for links and will continue to work with them because it’s both a healthy and happy environment for kids and staff. No matter what crèche you work for or cover in the staff and management are very welcoming. Links are excellent for helping management and staff to develop and progress their skills by offering continuous training.
Pros
An excellent company to progress from staff to management if desired
Cons
Challenging but rewarding job.

I enjoy being part the links team! Like with every job, you get out of it what you put into it. If you work hard you will reap the benefits, I mean this with both salary and progression to different levels within the company. I have been with the company for 14months now and have been promoted twice.
Pros
Salary, oppertunities to progress
