Amber Humphries

Would you like to find out what employers want in the Childcare industry?

We met with Amber Humphries who is a Childcare Centre Director, to gain insight to help job seekers who are interested in a Childcare career.

Watch our interview here, otherwise there is a breakdown below.

What qualities do you look for when hiring staff?

  • Good rapport with children
  • Neat and tidy appearance
  • Unfortunately no piercings in this industry
  • Happy and friendly
  • Gets along well with others

Interview Tips

  • Be confident in your abilities
  • Be prepared – even if you bring notes for yourself, call up prior and find out what questions are going to be asked of you

What stands out to you in a Resume?

  • Not necessarily qualifications, as you can be studying or undertaking a traineeship
  • A big thing that stands out to us is when people are jumping from different things to different things. For example, random unrelated training qualifications. We tend to steer clear of people like that as we are looking for job seekers who are passionate about working in our industry and not just trying everything and anything

Thanks Amber!
