Hi, I live in Cumbria (Carlisle), just wondered if anybody could help me.
I work for a family know who I've been with 3 years. The children have all grew up know, and I'm no longer doing childcare as such, I do after school hours, this can be anything from 3-6 4 days a week, I'm cooking tea and getting them ready for bed during this time, or I go in a few hours early and cook and clean. This s no longer enough for me, and I'd like to start again with a new family, with young children again.
I've been looking for a while now, for nanny agencies in cumbria for jobs, I can't find any?
The only thing I can find is childcare.co.uk and it seems people join up and never reply to messages or come back, and as I'm paying to use it, it makes me bit miffed!!
In some areas there is not enough demand for an agency to base itself in the area. Look further afield, perhaps even as far as Liverpool, Manchester... are there any agencies there.
Look in local magazines, see which agencies advertise. Think like a parent looking for a nanny, where would you start looking, local shops that offer advertising, local newspapers, local publications... such as Families, ABC, if those are in your area, local soft play with a noticeboard.
