Default Looking for live in Nanny position

Hi, I am currently residing in Australia, and looking for a Nanny position in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, and when I search Nanny agencies on Google, its overwhelming, how many listings come up. I have emailed a few agencies, but haven't heard back from them yet. Does anyone have any agencies that they can highly recommend? as I will be doing all interviews via Skype etc before I come to the UAE

If you do a search this has been discussed at length quite recently. Proper nannies/Au Pairs are few and far between and the majority of people simply use maids to look after their children, whom of course don't earn very much.

There are some families that will employ westerners, pay a decent salary and give you more than a broom cupboard to live in, but it's not very common.

Hi everyone, Really need some help from any experienced ex-pats on here..

I've spent 3 weeks sending CV's and covering letters to a ton of employers in several sectors and also made a ton of applications through various recruitment and classifieds websites (including all the sites listed earlier in this sticky).

Result: absolutely nothing so far. I'm starting to get a little disillusioned, especially as I have great skills and experience and a good CV. I've heard one or two people say that the main way to get jobs it to have leads, contacts via the grapevine or something.

Can anyone here give me any leads or tips? (I'm applying for English teacher jobs and as a contrast, also for more active jobs such as Recreation manager or fitness center assistant and host (all in hotels).

Thanks for any help!

Not so experienced yet, but I can imagine there will be more openings for teachers during the holiday break.

School hiring is going on but will be ramped up in a few months when they determine who is leaving and who is staying for the next school year. This may seem like an odd question, but are you native british? If not, that might be a bit of an issue you would run into here as far as schools go.

As far as those other type of jobs, I guess my first question is if you have been here? Those jobs are almost always done by other nationalities who will accept those jobs in the 3000 to 5000 dirhams range and shared housing with others in a one bedroom apartment. Not something westerners tend to do. Do you have management experience running a recreation/fitness center? That is more the target you would be looking at for a job that would allow you to make enough to live here as a westerner.
