Careers for People Who Want to Work With Kids*

*This is a collaborative post*

When the majority of us head to work, we tend to spend our full working days in the company of other adults. Whether we are employed individuals working in an office space, a retailer selling goods to customers, a librarian leasing books from the local facilities, or a whole number of other professionals. But what about those of us who want to nurture the future generations, ensuring that children are safe and sound, as well as happy and content? Some of us just really have a knack for helping children to find the best in themselves and bringing a smile to their faces. The good news is that there are plenty of positions out there for people who are dedicated to ensuring a good quality of life and a positive future for little ones. Here are just a few to consider!


One of the first careers that people consider when they want to help children is becoming a teacher. So let’s start out by taking a look at Jobs in Schools. Children begin their formal education around the age of four or five, and then remain in compulsory education until the age of eighteen. They can progress massively in these thirteen or fourteen years, so will require different sorts of teachers to aid them through each step of their journey. This is why the first decision that you make when moving towards a career in teaching is to determine what age group of kids you want to work with. Each will require different qualifications and training, so knowing from an early stage can help you to progress with less trouble. Once you have a vague idea, start searching necessary qualifications. The majority of teachers will require a bachelor’s degree, as well as formal training in their given area. You will also have to pass various police checks to ensure that you are deemed safe to work with some of society’s most vulnerable individuals. Alongside this, you should ensure that you have various personality traits that can aid children’s learning, such as patience, positivity, and perseverance.


When people say that they are training to be a doctor, we generally think of them treating adult patients. However, it’s important to remember that little ones need care too! Every year, large numbers of children do become ill or injured and have to be seen to in hospitals across the country. If you want to help put wrongs to rights, ensuring that children can recover as best as possible, and that they are as comfortable as possible in their time of need, you could become a pediatrician. A pediatrician is a medical professional who specialises in the treatment and management of children’s health. This area of specialism can be extremely rewarding, as you help little ones to maintain as good a quality of life as physically possible.

These are just two areas where you can find yourself working with children and improving their lives on a regular basis. So, if you are good with kids, take them into consideration next time you head out on a job search!
