Next up, we're introducing you to the wonderful Caity, who has been with The Nanny Diary for almost 3 years! Caity commenced her office manager role in September 2019, after nannying for the agency since 2017. She steps into the role with a wealth of knowledge and skills, and since starting, has taken everything in her stride!
We are very fortunate to have Caity and the energy she brings to the job. She has so many exciting ideas we can't wait to put into motion! We put some questions to Caity that she has happily responded to so you can get to know her better.
Where were you born and raised?
I grew up in Alice Springs before moving to Adelaide in 2017 to attend Uni.
How would your friends and family describe you?
Probably very talkative! Otherwise confident, compassionate and driven!
What is your career/study background?
I have worked for The Nanny Diary as both a casual and permanent nanny for the last 2.5 years whilst studying a Bachelor of Business Marketing which I completed this year. My marketing career is only just starting having just finished studying, however taking on the Office Manager role has allowed me to practice some of the theory I obtained throughout my degree. I plan to use my time as Office Manager to try and assist with as much Marketing & Sales opportunities that I can.
What do you like doing outside of work?
I am very social and love to network so I find myself attending lots of the amazing events and festivals that South Australia has to offer. I'm a bit of a foodie so love all things cooking and catching up for coffee!
Where is your favourite place in South Australia?
Definitely some of the amazing coastlines SA has to offer! Outside of Adelaide I love travelling to Robe in the summer and have enjoyed venturing back to Streaky Bay where my family and I would holiday as a kid!
What is your role at The Nanny Diary?
I am a casual and permanent nanny as well as the acting Office Manager. I take care of all enquiries that come through, manage the administrative side of the business and sort out all the bookings requests we receive.
What made you want to join The Nanny Diary?
I initially joined The Nanny Diary as I wanted to be around children, and create fun and exciting activities for them. I have 3 nephews back in Alice Springs and with no family in SA it was a nice way to feel connected to them! I joined the team after the first Childhood Cancer Gala Dinner and felt really inspired to work for an agency that provided that level of support to an organisation so in need.
Whats your favourite part of working with The Nanny Diary?
My favourite part would be the connection I am able to create with children, their families and their home lives! I also love the relationships I get to form with the clients through the office management side of things, and I love that I get to play such a huge role in helping the business grow each week.
With Christmas coming up, do you have a favourite festive song or movie?
Like Sarah, I'm a sucker for Home Alone but my Christmas tradition is more with cooking goodies for my family and friends!
Next time you make an enquiry or contact the office team about a booking, you'll now know a bit more about the beautiful bubbly girl behind the emails!
