Note: Please bear in mind that this is a discussion board, not a place to advertise childcare vacancies or recruit childminders/nannies etc. We don't mind the odd mumsnet regular mentioning that they're looking for a job/mindee (although you're probably better off in MN Local) but repeated job "ads" and posts from nanny/babysitting agencies aren't fair to people who are paying for small business ads. Do feel free to report any you see. Thanks, MNHQ.

How did you find a babysitter?

I'm aware that many babysitters are found by word of mouth (often teenage neighbours etc), but how do you go about finding somebody if you don't know anybody? Would you ask around? Would you ever contact a babysitter who has put up a notice in a shop window? Or on Gumtree? Do you expect qualifications from a babysitter?

Let me know how you found yours, or if you don't yet have one, how you would feel most comfortable
