TULSA, Oklahoma -

A Tulsa nonprofit has launched a new online job board designed to help childcare facilities across the state find qualified workers. The new database allows job seekers to find an opportunity and childcare facilities to find the right candidates.

The Community Service Council launched the job board recently. Organizers said a lack of qualified workers is leading to fewer spots at childcare facilities across Oklahoma.

The database is free for employers to post open positions and for people looking for a job in childcare. The interactive board allows those wanting to work in the industry to filter exactly what they are searching for and enter any specific certifications they have.

The big idea is to help fight staffing shortages, which could lead to higher acceptance rates in childcare facilities.

“Right now there’s a major shortage of workers in many industries, childcare included,” said Stephanie Daniels, Community Service Council. “Lots of families are having trouble finding childcare because there isn’t enough slots, because there isn’t enough workers.”
