Growth opportunities via Charly Cares
In our eyes, you are a true Angel. Rightly so! You use your talents to promote the development and well-being of a child, and temporarily take over the care of children. As a result, you improve your communication skills, and become increasingly responsible and independent. Those are skills that you will always carry with you. But, in addition to the experience you gain while babysitting, there are also other growth opportunities. On this page, you can find out more about those specific opportunities. Charly Cares about you!
GigCV: proof of your experience
As a Charly Cares babysitter, you gain relevant work experience that you can take with you to your next job, for example in the childcare sector. That is why you can now download a clear overview of your experience and reviews with the GigCV feature. You can find this new feature in the app, meaning you have access to proof of your experience.
''I currently work as a dental assistant, but babysitting has made me consider making a career switch to child psychology. That is why GigCV is definitely a great addition. To be able to prove to yourself how much experience you have.''
''My babysitting experience shows that I am independent and able to deal with unexpected situations. With the help of GigCV, I can finally showcase my experience and reviews, which will definitely be of added value during job interviews!''
''I have Charly Cares on my LinkedIn page, meaning you can easily add a digital document to it. ‘Babysitter’ can be hard to describe and quickly becomes superficial, while in fact you bear quite a lot of responsibility. I think that GigCV nicely shows what babysitting entails and what you are like as a babysitter.''
Learn how to act in case of an emergency during a Child First Aid workshop
Unfortunately, accidents happen. We think it is important that you as an Angel can babysit without having to worry and with complete confidence. That is why, in collaboration with EHBO Bureau, we offer these workshops at a special discounted rate to our Angels. Bonus: after completing the workshop, you will be able to add the first aid icon to your Angel profile, so that parents can see that you have this additional knowledge.
More experience = earn more
When you as an Angel have lots of experience, you should be rewarded accordingly. That is why we offer you the freedom to set your own hourly rate. Have you been charging the same hourly rate for a long time, but have you gained lots of experience in the meantime? Simply increase your hourly rate, you deserve it!
