“Part-time, Flexible, Fun! Better than bar work and offering great hourly rates and genuine transferable life skills…”
Many students work part-time to earn spending money or to pay bills, fund tuition or save for post-graduate life. Sadly, a lot of part-time jobs never make it onto a CV because they are seemingly unrelated to students’ coursework or employment ambitions.
Part-time work as an After School Student Nanny is never wasted experience. It could make you stand out to employers and bolster your future CV:
Whether you are considering working with children in the future or will choose something completely different, the work you do looking after children now will give you excellent transferable skills plus the benefits of being a trusted and valued member of a family:
Prove your time-keeping skills and improve your time management
Gain confidence in all basic household management skills such as cooking, menu planning and grocery shopping – or even family admin
Put your academic knowledge to use with homework assistance and school project management – or even tutoring in your own subject
Improve your communication skills by relaying important information from school to home and managing children’s social diaries - setting up playdates, arranging birthday parties, planning outings during school holidays
Remind yourself every day how important childhood is!
