For Jobseekers: Finding Nanny and Babysitting Jobs in Calgary

If you are on the other side of the coin and are looking for work as a nanny or babysitter in Calgary, you are in luck - there are tons of parents who are in need of your services!

The hardest part is finding them, and for that, you need to either rely heavily on recommendations from past employers, or sign up to a nanny agency or online nanny services like Nanny agencies generally reach a wider audience than an individual nanny would be able to on her own, which is why so many nannies turn to these agencies for employment.

When you sign up to an agency, you will need to include a resume, references and a criminal background check - all these are necessary in order for potential employers to even look at your profile!

If you are just starting out in the nanny field and don’t have any formal childcare experience, list any informal experience you have - parents just want to be assured that you know how to supervise and interact with children.

If you have any special talents or attributes, such as playing piano, possessing a drivers’s license or speaking both French and English, make sure to include it in your profile. You never know what specific detail might appeal to employers, and that can make the difference between being invited for an interview or not!
