I am a British nanny who is looking for a new position to start in January. Preferably I am looking for full time however I am open to accepting multiple part time or nanny share positions.
If I can not find work then I am interested in starting my own 'maman de jour/childminding' business. Has anyone done this or have insight into doing this? And most importantly would anyone be interested in this service?
I have over 2 years’ experience in childcare, the last 6 months working as a nanny for a Swiss family with 2 children aged 2 and 4 years old. Unfortunately this position now ends at the end of December. Before this I worked for 8 months working as a nanny for a family with a baby who was 2 weeks old when I started and an older child who was 3 years old. Before working as a nanny I worked in a day nursery in the baby room and I have also worked in a ski resort holiday nursery. Whilst working in the nursery I started gaining my experience to become a nanny by working a few days a week with a family whose child was 1 when I started. I carried on working for them when I started my full time nanny job and was with them for 18 months.
I hold a CACHE Level 2, Award, Certificate and Diploma in Childcare and Education.
I hold a full clean English driving license and am pediatric first aid trained.
I hold an enhanced CRB disclosure and nanny insurance.
I speak basic French, German and Italian however since being in Switzerland my French and German has improved and I am currently taking classes for French.
I have a 'B' permit and health insurance and I really do not want to return to the UK so please help!
I am more than willing to send my C.V to people who are interested. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information.
I look forward to hearing from some of you soon.
Thanks in advance for your help!
