The Indiana Educator Job Board is an easy-to-use tool to help early learning and out-of-school time programs recruit and hire educators and staff to their organizations. Posting on the board ensures that your current job openings are seen by more job seekers, helping you fill roles quickly and with quality candidates. Here’s how it works:

  • Sign up for your free account through I-LEAD
  • Log into the job board and start posting your open roles
    • Save drafts of job listings and post them when you are ready, or
    • Archive job listings that have been filled, which can be re-published later if needed
  • Job seekers can search open positions on the board and apply for your job postings

Organizations will also have access to Nimble's applicant tracking system for free to support recruitment and hiring processes. This system automatically posts open positions to Indeed, ZipRecruiter, and other third-party job boards while keeping candidate information all in one place.
