Not yet. I have 3 teachers though, so don't expect they have any job worries.

You may find more people are returning to work, so maybe things will pick up anyway.

Not you aswell Keep seeing the same thing on here. Luckily I'm fine, all came back after maternity leave and have a BIG waiting list. Had 2 calls yesterday too. Unfortunately the calls are all for under 5 year olds and I only have school run vacancies. I think it must depend on what area you are in but yes, of course redundancies happen whereever you live so I do worry about what may happen in the future.

Hope things turn around for you hun x

Came very close to losing one nearly fulltime mindee as both parents were made redundant-Thankfully for them one of them has managed to find another job. However I have two leaving early in 09 and I'm going to struggle to fill both places.

I have lost 2 that have gone to different schools and have not yet managed to replace them, and lots of cm's here have vacancies.

Yep, me struggling to fill vacancies too and the parents I do have either don't pay on time or refuse my holiday I want to book off even tho I'm giving them 3 months notice but just can't risk loosing them they way things are going especially right before xmas

Happyfaces - GOBSMACKED as them saying NO to your holiday. It's not up to them, it's up to you!!! angry As long as you give them the right about of notice, they can't REFUSE it, can be annoyed but not refuse!
