Quick Hello

Post  liz.wilson on Wed Sep 21, 2011 6:47 pm

Hi everyone,

Im Liz - from Christchurch NZ... ive been in London since May working as an EFL Teacher (with school aged/teens) and doing a little bit of TA work on a supply basis. I decided to look for something more permanent - so following in my mothers OE footsteps i decided on nannying. Caring for children comes pretty naturally when you have helped raise a little brother/been babysitting since the age of 14. Smile

Kind of fell into nannying when one of my best friends became pregnant and i moved in to help her out with her daughter. I miss both of them a lot - esp now as Lydia is talking in full sentences. "hello mate" seems to be a favourite over skype.

Nannying in London seems like a good fit to me, and im really looking forward to working with little ones again and all the different sorts of challenges they bring.

London is huge and it would be great to meet new people/make friends. Actually for all you kiwis out there.. SHAPESHIFTER is playing in She Bu on sat night Smile

Karen is my lovely consultant - and i have my first interview tomorrow night so fingers crossed it all goes well!

Introduction!

Post  michellelane.nz on Thu Dec 02, 2010 6:27 pm

Hi all, my name is Michelle Lane and am fresh off the boat, have been here since the beginning of September and so far do not see myself heading home any time soon!

I love London and am excited to start meeting some more people around here as we all know it can be a tad lonely and hard to meet people when your nannying.

I am a live in nanny and look after the most adorable 4 year old boy who as I tell him ‘makes my heart sing’ – All thanks to Karen!!

I am looking at being Local Co-ordinator for the Maida Vale area etc but can't wait to meet you all at our first meet and greet!!

Hi guys!
I'm Karen, I am the Live in Consultant in the KiwiOz London office-I helped young Mieke in the post below with her job, so I'm pleased to see it's going well!
I worked as a nanny through KiwiOz in NZ and then the lovely Rachel sorted me out an amazing Live in position in London which is what brought me over here, I lived with the family for 2 years and have officially adopted them as my own! I love them to bits, there really is nothing quite like the relationship you forge with a family you live with and nanny for. (although it was slightly strained when i left them to work for KiwiOz!)
However, I was out on the edge of London and fervently wished i could have met other Nannies, but there wasn't a network like this, so I would totally encourage you all to get on board and meet each other, having that support will make a huge difference to so many girls.
I look forward to the first get together!

Karen

Hi Everyone,

we've built this forum on request from some of our nannies so I hope you find it useful.

Please introduce yourself here and let us know a little bit about you, where you work, likes and dislikes, anything you want really!

Other local nannies will be able to PM you to get in touch.

Our Local Coordinators will also be introducing themselves here so keep an eye out for a coordinator in your area. If there isn't one and you'd like be a Local Coordinator then contact us for some info, we'd love to hear from you!

Rachel@KiwiOz Very Happy
