Management tasks in the Biberbau - the site management
Sonja K. is the site manager at our kindergarten Gablenzgasse:
"I am a trained kindergarten teacher with years of management experience and have long been looking for a job that allows me to contribute my experience well. It is important to me that I can concentrate fully on the subject of pedagogical management and parent counseling. The good division of labor with my colleagues in the group service and the close cooperation with the pedagogical head office make it possible for me to focus completely on my areas of responsibility. In addition, I have the opportunity to continuously further my education. For me, this is exactly the right choice!"
Daily responsibility - the group management
Anja has been the group leader at the Hardtmuthgasse location since it opened.
"The responsibility that one bears as a group leader in the kindergarten is great - one wants to do justice to all the children, all the parents, but also the colleagues. As a kindergarten teacher, I am aware of what is required here, but at the same time I like the fact that I am given a lot of say on the part of the Biberbau as an employer. I have a lot of room to develop professionally and personally and to expand my knowledge. In the Biberbau Academy, I am offered various training courses on pedagogical and also organizational topics that pick me up exactly where I am. This makes me feel secure and motivated."
Important support - the assistants
Charlotte, assistant at the Hardtmuthgasse site, tells us about her experience.
"Often an assistant is seen more as a cleaner or support. At Biberbau, it's completely different. As an assistant, I have my own areas of responsibility, I'm actively involved in the educational activities by my group leader and I receive my own training at the Biberbau Academy. It feels good to be taken seriously and to have the opportunity to learn new things. That's why I really enjoy working at Biberbau!"
Learning languages playfully - the native speakers
Melissa works at Native Speaker at our Gablenzgasse location.
"I came to Vienna a few years ago. I have worked in educational professions before, but finding a job in Vienna where I can use my educational knowledge and my native language English has been very difficult so far. At Biberbau I have the opportunity to put this into practice. Since I only work part-time, I also have the opportunity to continue my education while working. My goal is to work as a trained educator in the long term."
