About Us


First A Little History...

Hi, I am Sarah Kelly, I have worked in and run Early Years Settings for over twenty years and have Recruited Staff for the last ten as a Manager which gives me a Great understanding of what you need as either a Candidate or Hiring Manager.

And then along came, first Poppy, and more recently, Ollie... and, having worked post Poppy I really wanted to find a way to offer my experience and knowledge whilst also not being tied to a static setting, allowing me to be there for both of my children and to build something for our futures...

I had a Bubble of an idea, and with the help of my Husband, who has worked in Recruitment for many years we came up with Poppy's People, a dedicated Recruitment Service for the Early Years Sector.. We hope that it can be of use to you as either an Employer or as an Early Years Professional seeking a New Challenge be it as a Temp or Full Timer..
