More information on the JOBBOARD    

  • Almost 65% of the governess in Australia come out of Victoria or NSW.  It seems that people from these states are itching to roam Australia.  

  • The amount of In Home Care and Governess positions in Australia has tripled in the last 10 years back to similar numbers as the 1980s.  Before In Home Care people couldn't afford anyone to help with the children. 

  • Low unemployment does effect our industry just the same as the rest of the country.  Less people to go around more jobs.  Backpackers are helping fill childcare voids in the outback but are a 3-6 month solution.

  • IN HOME CARE places are available in most states.  Please check if you are eligible for this funding.  More information see the In Home Care information on this page.
