Clients from time to will ask us for assistance helping their departing nanny locate a new position. Many post "Nanny Available" advertisements on neighborhood list servs and bulletin boards. We recently came across the following example and wanted to share. Names have been changed!
Our beloved nanny, Sarah, who has worked for us and been a part of our family for the past 5 years, is looking for a new family to work for in Park Slope. Sadly, we will not need her excellent services any more now that both of our children will be in school full-time this fall. Not only is Sarah a great nanny (very interactive with and loving towards our kids) but she has basically run our household for the past several years (e.g., cleaning house, cooking meals, running errands, and attending to other household administrative matters). She also has been extremely flexible over the years to suit our family's busy schedule, as evidenced by her occasional overnight stays and evening/weekend babysitting, as needed. We are very sorry to lose Sarah and highly recommend her to a loving family. She is able to work legally in the US.
In addition, Sarah has substantial experience caring for elderly persons in their homes and would consider opportunities in this area, as well.
Please let me know if you're interested in Sarah, as I'd be happy to further discuss her qualifications with you and answer any questions you may have. In the alternative, you may contact Sarah directly at 212.555.5555.
