- We liaise with you regarding feedback on interviews, book second interviews, negotiate rates of pay ensuring you do not pay above the market rate, make verbal offers of employment on your behalf (or you may wish to handle this directly), provide a template contract of employment and net to gross pay conversion if applicable.
- We are available for you following the placement of your nanny with our aftercare support, providing advice such as pay reviews, ‘snow days’ and sickness.
- Above all, we offer complete peace of mind. There are many childcare websites for recruiting nannies directly but there can be a risk factor with this style of recruitment. The candidates are not vetted and may be unsuitable for childcare employment for a variety of reasons including poor or falsified references, false ID and qualifications, gaps in employment and a CV with discrepancies.
