We have just moved abroad and I am started to look for work. I don't speak Italian very well but am learning fast. An Au pair job has just come up about 15 minutes drive from my house. They want part time, non italian(English) speaker. The agency is based in London. I just rang the agency to find out more and even though I am a qualified nanny with more than 10 years experience (including running a nursery) and am looking only for part time work they WILL NOT put me forward because I am not looking for live in. He didn't even look at the file as he asked for the reference number which I didn't take down. The jumped up little ** put the phone down when I said so you won't even consult the family about me. AHHHHHHH I hate agencies.

Go and see the family in person, if you know the address, drop them a letter.

I can't don't have any contact details. Thats how agencies have their power, and thats why they make us poor employees feel like scum begging for work.
