Mother of boy/girl twins, aged 19 in their second year of university, has given me the flexibility to develop my career doing something I want to do. Between 1998-2010 I took a career break, and have a wealth of experience travelling the world with my husband's career, having to set up home several times and settling my children into different schools, I have developed life skills which have given me the ability to adapt and enable me to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life whilst raising my family and maintaining a family home. I consider that I am a conscientious, approachable, friendly and an energetic person, Being a parent myself has given me the experience and advantage of having the insight and understanding of how a parent feels and how important the early years are. My life experience and career to date, have provided me with extensive knowledge and understanding of communicating with all levels of staff, students, parents and members of the public giving me the ability to handle situations in a tactful, diplomatic and confidential manner.
In the last 12 months I have been working for a lovely local family as a part time nanny. I have found this to be extremely rewarding and have built up a close bond with the children (age 2yrs & 4yrs) and have a good relationship with the family. For 6 years prior to this I was employed in early childhood education which was both challenging and rewarding knowing that I have positively contributed to a child’s learning. I have worked as a key worker for a group of children, 1:1 with SEN children and latterly as an Early Years Administrator. Previous to this I had twelve years working in various administration roles for differing types of business including Cheshire Police Force where I enjoyed the level of trust and responsibility that this position gave me.

Linda babysat our two children so we could attend a funeral. Linda came to our hotel with a bag of toys and was not fazed at being left in a strange hotel with two toddlers and only the very briefest of introductions. Linda instantly put our minds at ease and we knew our children would be safe and well cared for. Our children had a lovely time with Linda and have been talking about their new friend!
We travelled to the UK in July 2019 for work -- my husband and I are both scientists. We engaged Linda to watch our little boy of 6 months old for two days while we went to our conference. Linda was wonderful with him! She has a very calm and gentle manner which we prefer. Her instincts were also very good (like not liking him to have a certain toy in his mouth because she wasn't sure about the paint it had on it). She had no problem getting him to sleep, eat, and play quietly and she took him for nice walks outside. Linda was very good with communication and punctuality and was very professional. If we travel that way again we would happily engage her to watch him again.
