New Nanny In Zurich

Hi People,
Just accepted a job offer as a nanny in Zurich, 28 single female, just me and my HUGE suitcase!
Moving from the back arse of beyond in the uk, so any tips etc would be great!
Also any other nannies / expats or someone willing to teach me some local language in exchange for wine would be great!

Ellen

Well the wine sounds good. But Australian wine is my favorite as I'm from Australia

Re: New Nanny In Zurich

Hi! I'm a former Au Pair (originally from Canada) and I've made Switzerland my home. I'm 25 and live in Winterthur. Right now I'm a (very) part-time teacher. If you need someone to show you around and talk nannying-stuff with, feel free to contact me.

Re: New Nanny In Zurich

Hi. Did not mean that at all sarcastic. I really think your English is good.At least your written English. I speak German fluently ( more or less)
I've been here for 17 years now.
But as I said Austrian German loses me a bit.
Maybe catch up with your offer when I get time. Thanks.

Re: New Nanny In Zurich

Hello. Just wanted to ask a question about au pairs from Philippines.
My friend wants to work in Switzerland as an au pair. She's from Philippines and has done some basic nursing training as a helper.

I saw this internet site which offes help for au pairs. Is it honest?
http://www.aupair-world.co.uk/

Can anyone offer some advice on finding au pair work here?

Thanks

Re: New Nanny In Zurich

Definitely trustworthy, but still can not an absolute guarantee. Families are making their own registration, just as the au pairs do. No personal connection. Any of these sites are a good contact point. I can suggest, that she also advertises herself, looking for families in the same time, and try to discuss a personal appointment with each families (or a skype interview).
And she choses the best opportunity for herself.
Good luck!
