Big Day Out for Nannies

Big Day Out for Nannies

Nannies and child workers from around New Zealand are being flown free to America to nanny for a year. Nannies Abroad, the first agency in New Zealand to send nannies legally to America, are paying for flights for everyone who takes an application from the Girls Day Out exhibition in Auckland this weekend.

Recruitment manager for Nannies Abroad Vicki Kenny says the scheme is designed to encourage nannies to use a safe and trusted method for working in the US.

“We have excellent contacts in America and can offer some amazing opportunities for nannies. The free flights mean that these experiences are available to more people who want to work with children in another country.”

A free flight will be given to anyone aged 18 to 26 years old who completes an application (with a Girls’ Day Out voucher) before April 12th to nanny for one year in America, leaving in June or July this year.

Girls' Day Out group manager Brad Clark says everyone who comes to the exhibition is issued with a cheque book that has the Nannies Abroad free flight voucher and thousands of dollars worth of discounts and specials from other exhibitors.

“It’s great to have Nannies Abroad offering this exciting prize at our fourth Girls’ Day Out.”

Nannies Abroad, owned by New Zealand company International Working Holidays, also place nannies in Canada, England and parts of Europe and are one of the only agencies in New Zealand to specialise in overseas jobs for nannies.
