Just arrived for autumn... 
Nanny/aupair/Girl Friday

My husband's cousin's wife's sister (!) is over from Australia & looking for part time work. 

Faith says:


"I've worked in out of hours school care for about 4 years in total with 4-12 year old children. During that time I also worked with children with special needs such as autism, development delay, and visual impairment and I really enjoyed that work! I have also had experience with looking after children in a babysitting capacity for a number of years. 


Currently I'm a social worker in one of the major public hospitals in South Australia and one of my main wards is the paediatric ward working with children and their parents which has taught me a lot and helped me to grow my skills in working with families. I will be volunteering twice a week once I arrive in London but I'm looking forward to putting my skills to use and getting to know a new family!"
