I worked for 5 years with one family here in Dubai, they are a local family. I worked as a nanny/maid, they have 5 kids aged 15, 14, 11 and 8. Even though, they are big, I prepared everything for them, from preparing their meals, lunch boxes, their clothes and when they go to school. I can cook and I am okay with pets. I am available to start anytime.

Additionally, you are required to make Central Provident Fund (CPF) contributions for your nanny, which include employer and employee contributions.
