Hello and welcome to my profile!
My name is Alice and I am a 28 year old British female, currently looking for a nannying role, 3 to 5 days per week, and either locally in Herts or SW London. I am based near Hertford, however would consider relocating to London for the right live-in nanny position.
I was previously CRB checked in November 2016 (ish) and completed a first aid responder certificate in 2009, however I am currently in the process of updating these - aiming to get both a new DBS check and up-to-date training (Paediatric First Aid Certificate and Anaphylaxis) done this month. I am therefore not looking to start until I have completed these, however if in the meantime you would like to discuss an opportunity that you think I may be suitable for or you have an enquiry / any additional questions, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Thank you for reading and stay safe!
