Nanny Jobs Abroad and in the UK
Ski and Summer Season Nannies who have some or all of the following will have no problem in securing a fantastic job abroad. Ski companies have crèches and nurseries, and some take on private nannies to take care of clients children while the parents are out on the slopes. In summer resorts, campsites and holiday complexes in places like Spain, Greece and Turkey there is a similar set up, and many opportunities for childcare staff. In the UK, USA and Europe there are also outdoor and watersports centres and summer camps with a requirement for good quality childcare staff.
- Minimum 18 years of age (sometimes older - make sure you check to avoid disapointment)
- CACHE/NVQ/NNEB or equivalent childcare qualification
- DBS Disclosure Check (You can usually apply for this through the employer)
- Normally if the employer is a British company they will also insist on an EU passport, UK address and a permanent UK National Insurance number
Successful Crèche and nursery staff will have an excellent approach to childcare, and will also have the ability to deal confidently with the parents and the rest of the resort or centre staff. Common attributes of successful applicants include an enthusiastic approach to childcare, a highly professional attitude and the ability to add value to a team and provide professional assistance to managers who may not be childcare professionals.
Crèche and nursery staff will be expected to provide a stimulating programme of activities for babies (4 months is normally the minimum age but may be less for private nanny services) and toddlers. You will normally get a dedicated room or chalet but will also be expected to take the children on outdoor activities.
An attractive employment package is usually on offer (although wages are never great but this unfortunately is an industry trait). Typically the package will include accommodation, sometimes meals, Specialist Insurance, Uniform, travel to and from resort. And for ski seasons - Ski Pass and Ski hire.
