From Private Family (1): NA is an exceptionally reliable, hardworking, and friendly individual. Despite not being employed by me on a full-time basis, I have had the opportunity to witness her dedication and commitment to her work during the times she assisted me. She consistently displayed a strong work ethic and a positive attitude. While she remains employed, the working conditions with her current family are less than ideal, prompting her search for a more supportive and respectful work environment. I am willing to provide further details regarding this matter should you require additional information. In terms of her capabilities, NA has performed a range of duties for me, including childminding, cleaning, washing, and packing of suitcases and lunches. Her aptitude for childcare is particularly noteworthy, as she not only ensures the well-being of the children but also forms genuine connections with them. I have observed her ability to feed, dress, play, and genuinely care for children, making her an ideal candidate for roles that involve childcare responsibilities. NA is meticulous in following instructions and consistently completes tasks with a smile on her face. Her positive demeanor, coupled with her strong work ethic, makes her a pleasure to work with. If I did not already have a wonderful housekeeper, I would employ NA without a doubt.
Reference Family (1)
NA takes instructions well. She is always keen to help and do things how I want them. She listens well and executes what is asked of her. NA is always friendly, you won’t find her without a smile on her face. My kids adore her! She is always smiling and friendly. NA is extremely hard-working. She is always keen to help, even on weekends. I believe she is Christian, although we never really spoke about it. I have never experienced a negative attitude from NA. She has never not done something I asked of her without a smile and a nod. She has never asked me for money. I have never asked Anna to cook. But I am sure as a mom herself she can cook. She is good at feeding babies and toddlers.
From Private Family (2): Hello, I had the pleasure of employing her as a domestic worker some time ago. Although she left my employ quite a while back, I must say she possesses an impressive speed in cleaning, though her thoroughness may vary. She is particularly adept at caring for animals, though she didn’t specifically look after children, as she has kids of her own.
She’s a friendly, energetic, and pleasant individual. Additionally, she did borrow money during her time with me; kindly communicate clearly with her about what she can and cannot take, especially when it comes to food.
