An early education and child care nonprofit will host a hiring event to fill teacher and food service positions for its new center, and to fill positions at its other locations.

Sheltering Arms is seeking qualified candidates for lead teachers, full- and part-time assistant teachers, substitute teachers, food service managers and assistants.

Candidates will be taken through every stage of the application and interview process, and the agency has “the intention of making on-site offers,” according to a news release.

A new 27,000-square-foot early education and family center, which will serve about 180 children, will open at the start of the 2017-2018 school year. The organization raised $8.4 million to construct a new center on D. H. Stanton Elementary School’s campus near the former Turner Field.

It will be the organization’s 16th location, with others in Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fulton and Gwinnett counties.

The event will take place at 385 Centennial Olympic Drive on June 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., but doors close at 1 p.m. Candidates who apply for a position by June 7 will be given priority consideration.

Candidates are asked to dress in professional business attire and bring the following: a valid state ID or driver’s license, a resume and a copy of all college transcripts and educational certifications or high school diploma/GED.
