Monique is a Moncierge that is particularly loved by the in-house team at mtime. One of the things we first noticed about her was how bright she was, both in spirit and in intellect. So it was no surprise to us that when she got her first match with a family, the feedback was that she does everything she can to inspire a love of learning, imagination and laughter in their home.
My name is Monique, I'm 23 years old and am a full time student living on the Peninsula.
I am studying to be a nurse and paramedic and will be completing the double degree this year. In my off–time, my favourite things to do are taking a walk along the beach or sitting down to a cup of tea and a good book! I am also a calisthenics coach at a local club that I have been involved with for 20 years.
My experience with mtime as a Moncierge has been extremely rewarding. I love that when I go to work I'm helping others and forming meaningful relationships. The family that I work for have become very important to me as we have been working together for over a year. It has been so special watching the children that I care for develop and spending time with them is a highlight of my week.
What's it like to be a Moncierge?
A typical Moncierge session for me has consisted of an 8-hour day. In this job I have felt very valued. I am lucky enough to be able to take one of the girls I care for to activities such as Planet Kids, the Big Goose, Gymbaroo and Acrobatics while her sister is at school. In nicer weather we spend time outside at the park or playing in the playground. Once home we play games, read books together and our favourite movie is Moana. I am also able to do washing, cook meals and do general cleaning to help around the house.
[The mtime Team] have been easily accessible and approachable. They have shown support in my work life and encouragement with university. We communicate through phone calls and emails but primarily messaging which is extremely easy and convenient for me. I feel very lucky to have found something that I love doing, so juggling my life and commitments has become that much easier. I would highly recommend this job to anyone who wants to feel happy, helpful and appreciated at work.
