The benefits of working in private childcare?
Jobs in childcare are very rewarding. Other than spending your time working with children, you will have a flexible working day and a great salary.
For candidates with flexibility, jobs in childcare will require for them to travel internationally with the family which is often considered a benefit. All expenses are paid by the principals during travel as well as additional pay. When childcare providers do not have to travel with the family, this time will be their own meaning that they can have additional time off.
In less formal positions, your employers will usually be very flexible and try to meet your needs considering time off and duties when required.
We also work with several royal families where the childcare jobs are much more demanding than in a informal household however, child care providers are much more likely to secure jobs in childcare having royal household experience.
