What Nanny Part-Time Work Entails
A part-time job is very different from full-time, especially in child caregiving industry. Not necessarily in the job duties being performed, but more in terms of its duration. The hourly volume of part-time work generally ranges from 15 to 29 hours per week. Full time hours range from 32-40 hours per week.
There are several reasons that some people opt for a part-time job, such as monetary and time bound reasons. Whatever the reason, a nanny career can provide flexible or part time hours.
The Job Requirements of a Nanny
The job duties and requirements of a nanny vary from family to family. Several part time positions are offered by Ace Personnel and each has its unique requirements. The requirements may range anywhere from night supervision to full day children supervision.
