my daughter's a teenager now, off doing her own thing ... so it's been some time since I've needed a sitter!
But, I'm back at uni now and in need of extra cash, and I'm great with kids, a qualified teacher and a parent myself, so thought a couple of evenings babysitting a week would be great, (I'm often sitting for friends but wouldn't like to go charging them!)

so where do people find good babysitters? I thought about cards in local shops, libraries... but where else? Any recommended websites, publications, agencies? I'm in north London.

I work through It's totally flexible and works for me. It's a bit of a faff to register as you need to attend an interview but once that's done you're up and running.

Maybe start out with sitters and safehands network and build up as good reputation and then also advertise privately
