Lizaan is a wonderful, vibrant candidate who has fantastic childcare experience. For the past four years she has been an au pair; she has experience working both locally and abroad. Taking into account her informal experience too, she has been working with children for the past seven years. This is clearly a role in which she feels very comfortable, and we could see that she absolutely enjoys it. Lizaan is a very creative person – she is a trained chef and also enjoys arts, crafts, sports and the outdoors (she is also a qualified diving instructor). With her age being slightly older than the average au pair comes a level of maturity higher than most, as well as a great sense of responsibility. Lizaan seems like one of the most easy-going people we have met, and she can adapt to any situation that may arise, without complaint. She is respectful of boundaries and aims to seamlessly fit into a family’s way of doing things. She is sensitive to children’s needs and tends to adjust her reactions based on how the child may be feeling, especially when dealing with difficult situations. Having said this, she can also be firm when needed. Lizaan’s bubbly presence and warmth really made it a pleasure to interview her and we were properly impressed by her all the way. It is for these reasons we are excited to put her forward as an au pair candidate with our agency.
