GR8 Recruitment said it had worked with the Kenyan government to develop a programme to ensure new employees meet the required standards before moving overseas.
Lee Madden, managing director of GR8, said there was a “severe recruitment issue in the early years care sector across the islands”.
“Through our partnerships in Kenya, we have access to hundreds of fully qualified and experienced early years practitioners and are prepared for the cultural differences that they may face when coming to work here”, he said.
Mr Madden added: “The idea to go further afield is one that has worked across other sectors. The benefit to the individual is they are getting some solid experience working in the UK market, and it pays significantly more than it would back home.
“We are getting early years carers providing the service. They are talented, have qualifications and tick all the boxes. The children are getting cared for so allows people to go back to work. It’s good for the economy and addresses the gender pay gap. The benefits are many.”
