About being a nanny

We are looking for enthusiastic, positive people who are able to be flexible in their working hours. Many of our families are shift workers or have rotating shifts, so flexibility is essential for us to meet families’ needs.

As a nanny, you will be supported by the Wesley Mission Queensland coordination unit and are provided with resources, advice and in-service training along the way.  We’re here to help you with any questions as our priority is ensuring a positive placement for each family and nanny.
