What was your situation before you called KiwiOz? Why did you need our help?
I was looking for a new experience after working in a centre for years and becoming qualified in early childhood education. I came to KiwiOz because I found them the most helpful when it came to exploring and searching for different nanny roles. Also, the process was really fast after I made first contact; within a few days I had an email to set up and start the interview process.
What has been the best part about working with KiwiOz?
My experience so far has been fantastic. KiwiOz has helped me from the beginning; sending me helpful information to prepare for interviews, keeping me up to date on the process, and staying in contact during the different stages of interviewing. Once I had arrived in the country and started my new job, Julia checked in to see how I was going and to let me know that if I needed anything she was just an email/call away. They also hold regular events to enable you to meet other nannies outside of work hours, encouraging you to make new friends. I also just discovered they hold fun activities for both nannies and children.
Is there anything we could be doing to better help you?
Only having more meet ups! :-)
What is life like in your new job?
I have been here for a little over two months now and am absolutely loving it. The family I work for are lovely and very welcoming, which made it so much easier when I first arrived to build a good bond with not only the children but also the parents. Life is currently very busy. The days I am at work always fly by. We attend a variety of different classes (there are so many to choose from) and lots of different activities to extend their learning. I look after one-year-old twin boys, and we also like to explore the local area, whether it's playing at the park or feeding the ducks. In my free time I am constantly exploring everywhere as there are too many different places to see! I have quickly made friends with some other Nannies and Au Pairs in the area and am currently planning some trips away, which is very exciting.
