Not everyone is cut out to be a Nanny. The role is not an easy one, and those that take on such jobs can work long hours and may constantly need their wits about them. However, for those that do take on Nanny jobs, the pay can be extremely good, the experience extremely rewarding and the opportunity for adventure can be great.
After all, for most Brits, the best Nanny jobs available will be international Nanny jobs, as these will often pay better rates and offer the chance for an individual to see the world at the same time. Furthermore, those who take on such a role will often be able to learn a new language, explore a new culture and may even find that they simply help prepare themselves to be a parent later on in life.
The benefits do not end there either, and being an English Nanny abroad will also simply look great on your CV and may even give you a good deal of experience in teaching English to foreign children, something that can allow you to potentially travel anywhere in the world later on and easily find work.
So, how will one know if being a Nanny is for them?
Well, those with a lust for adventure and travel and those who do not mind undertaking chores or looking after children will thrive in such a role, and so long as you can get on well with a wide range of people, you will have a great deal of potential as a Nanny.
Those who easily get homesick or do not want to work long hours need not apply, but those with determination and those who wish to see the world in the most rewarding (both financially and mentally) way will find that taking such jobs abroad will be extremely worthwhile.
