    Hi guys,

    I've seen an ad for bubble babysitting app and was wondering if anyone else has used it? They say it's a good option for students due to it being very flexible (you set which days you want to work and don't have to work at all during exams if you don't want).

    I'm looking for more childcare experience for my course anyway so could be a good fit - anyone else tried it in Birmingham?

    Thanks!

    i use bubble!!! you should go for it you’ve got nothing to lose you just accept the jobs you want, i’ve only done 4 so far but it’s getting bigger in bham atm. Defo worth a go if you need childcare exp top it’s so easy to sign up then you’re good to go and you get paid so quick which is so handy when you’re broke haha

    Oh cool. Can you chat to the parents in advance? I don't like the idea of accepting a job without having chatted to them first

    yeah you can message them straight away i sometimes ask to have a phone call if i'm not sure, some ask to meet first if its going to be a longer term thing or if the children are a bit young. Have you signed up yet? I've seen more job requests lately
