Hi.

Anyone out there with an aupair who might like to meet up with my aupair.

I would like som adv regarding how to interview a nanny? I had arranged for a nanny to start from Jan but did not sign a contract as she was employed by our friends and she was recommended by them? But I was let down last week as she is looking for another(possibly a better paid )job. This girl I am to interview tomorrow is newly qualified but sound very enthusiastic over the phone. I also would really appreciate if someone could tell how much a newly qualified ( no/min experience )diploma holder gets paid? PLEASE HELP. I DONT WANT TO DO THE SAME MISTAKE AGAIN.

Hi Sams, didn't want your post to go unanswered but i'm afraid the Cardiff boards are pretty quiet. Sounds like a reasonable question though - how about trying the Childminders/Nannys/Au Pairs board (or whatever it's called.) I'm sure someone could offer better advice there.

Good luck with it though.

Thanks MaryMotherofcheeses.

I was desperately checking the site every 30mins. The prospective nanny could not make it tomorrow.It is going to be day after. So have a bit of time. By the way What is this board- where can I find it.Tried searching within mumsnet cant find it. I do agree the cardiff boards are quiet.

this should be it

If you go to the top of the page, under the blue bar, you'll find "topic list" which gives the whole list of boards. To be honest, I think a lot of people just use "active conversations" on the line just below it. Sorry if you're sucking eggs at this stage. Welcome to MN by the way. And leave whilst you have the chance. It's highly addictive smile

Thanks
MaryMotherofcheeses. Found the topic and gathered lot of information. nothing about the pay as most of the thread is from London. Do you have any idea how much a newly qualified nanny gets paid?Recent development is that the previous nanny who was willing and didnot sign the contract wants to see me tomorrow and discuss it further.Not sure what to do as this nanny is good with the children and looked after my friends children including a newborn from 6 months.

MaryMotherOfCheeses Tue 02-Dec-08 22:46:57

Ooh not a clue about nannies I'm afraid. TBH I don't even know anyone who has one. Sorry.

But come and say hello on this thread perhaps More Cardiff people than you'll see in the MN Local board grin

SAMS73 Tue 02-Dec-08 23:00:00

I agree completely with you We need more people from Cardiff... TO DISCUSS LOCAL STUFF.

MaryMotherOfCheeses Tue 02-Dec-08 23:01:49

Local stuff for local people, that's what we need grin

ALMOST hired the nanny but the only sticky point is the duration of the holiday - she wants 6 weeks but I have told her that I can only give 5 weeks as I only get 5 weeks and I cant pay for her and for my children to be looked after during the extra week. She is thinking about it.

Pubs. Clearly grin

And what's for dinner.

And not making things stick at the top of active convos.

Ooooh look, those things are already there!!!! smile

I noticed the tumbleweed through the "reputable second hand car dealer" thread.

anyone there

Probably way too late but I've have been in a nanny position since March and currently get £7p/h and my school age ds comes too outside of school hours. I do have experience though.

SAMS73 Thu 29-Jan-09 21:12:10

mogs0 - cardiff is very slow site. Try advertising in netmums/gumtree,smile
