Working as a nanny in a country like Russia is actually a very in demand job. We can say this because when working for certain affluent Russian families you can expect great financial and personal awards. Many nannies find most career fulfilment when they work abroad; they get a real thrill from exploring a new country, using the whole breadth of their experience and skills.
With this in mind, if you want to get your foot in the door with international nanny jobs you need to think carefully about your application. Like any high demand job, just one or two errors in your application can see you overtaken by the eager competition.
Whilst being a good nanny is very much about your interpersonal and practical skills, the first step on the road to that international job is to write the perfect CV. Your CV needs to demonstrate a huge range of different skills, obviously working with children, reliability, confidence, academic qualifications plus lots and lots of relevant experience.
Experience is obviously the most important thing, so prior to applying for nanny jobs you should think very carefully about how you can fashion a wealth of experience that is like to appeal to agencies.It’s not all about your professional suitability for the job. Rather you need to ask yourself whether you’re ready to make a move to a new country – if you are then you’re promised a wonderful experience.
