Hi Gisela, 

The best way is through someone you trust, someone "'de confianca". My experience with an agency was not positive. If you don't speak Portuguese, insist that conversations and paperwork are drafted in English so that you understand the conditions. If you have a cafe you go to, ask the workers who they might know or recommend.  

Hope this helps 🙂

Hi Gisela,

My sister in law (who is Portuguese with perfect English and currently a school teacher) is looking for a job as a nanny. She lives in Coimbra now but would move for the right opportunity.

Let me know if you would be interested in speaking with her.
