Do you have someone in your family who wants to be a nanny or work in Paris? Do you know the rules for temporary employment? There are a couple of publications, websites and a wealth of Anglo organizations in Paris that might be able to help. Two good sources for basic information are AngloInfo Paris and the FUSAC (French USA Contacts) on line magazine. Both have employment directories, apartment rental information, classifieds for household goods, etc.
AngloInfo’s list for information includes: Moving, Housing, Working, Money, Family, Healthcare, Transport and Lifestyle. They have tips on Advertising, Franchising and translations. Want to move or work somewhere else in France or the world? Paris AngloInfo links to AngloInfo France and AngloInfo Worldwide in the Global Expat Network.
Less in depth and concentrating on Paris, FUSAC runs classifieds in French and English, Paris tips, books, history, photo ideas, staying connected with UK and US TV, blog entries with “Local Color”, a book corner, etc.
A mom wrote inquired about her daughter working as a nanny:
I was thinking it would be a wonderful experience for her if she could be a nanny in Paris for the summer! Do you think a possibility? She speaks no French, but she is great with children. She is certified in CPR/ First Aid and has babysat and taught tennis through the Recreation Department for 5 years. If you have any work ideas please let me know, she would be very interested in any job you might think of.
This is the list I sent to her. Use your browser search for the website address:
