Hi, has anybody had any experience of this type of childcare and can they advise how we should advertise for the role? The problem we have had so far is that the hours and money are quite different for term times and holiday, we are happy to offer extra hours term time or annualise the pay so there is not such a big disparity from one month to the do you go about getting people interested? It is proving very difficult.

have you contacted any childminders in your area? why do you need a nanny as opposed to a CM?

You need to think about who would want the job and target them.

Who can afford to work part-time 38 weeks of the year? Who has a job during the day, but not the afternoon? Who has something to fill their time during school time, but is available full-time in the holidays?

Students? Nanny with own child? Family looking for a nanny-share? Au pair? Older person?

There are specific agencies that deal in after school nannies. Quite often nursery or reception teachers might want additional hours like this.

Depends on the age of your DCs and your expectation of the nanny, but we have an AP and it works well for us.
