Why use a childcare agency in finding a domestic staff in Wimbledon?
The process of finding a nanny that is suitable to your family’s needs and preferences is not only difficult but will also add stress and worry if you were to do this on your own. While directly recruiting candidates gives you the flexibility and control, it can be a daunting task as sifting through the candidate applications will take too much of your time and most of these applicants do not even have the necessary qualifications and experiences that you are looking for. Whereas, if you use a childcare agency, you will have the reassurance that the nannies that will be presented to you have undergone a strict and very thorough screening and vetting process, something that an online job site will not be able to offer you.
We are here to guide you with all the process that comes with bringing a seamless addition into your home. Little Ones childcare agency will ensure that the nannies you meet are well-vetted, have the appropriate training, and are interested in the role and salary package that you are willing to offer.
What are the vetting procedures done by your childcare agency in Wimbledon?
Little Ones childcare agency receives thousands of applications a month, from these we only select the very best and schedule them to a face-to-face interview. These interviews include an in-depth discussion of the candidate’s personal experience and work history. Our Wimbledon nanny consultants will also take verbal references from the candidate’s previous clients as well as identity and work visa checks following a rigorous process. We also require all our nanny and childcare candidates to undertake a Paediatric First Aid qualification. We offer this course at a very affordable price to make sure that the nannies from Little Ones agency in Wimbledon are able to fund a course.
Once a nanny has been offered a position in Wimbledon, in line with OFSTED guidelines, our childcare agency requests a DBS check or police check from the nanny’s home country if s/he has stayed in the United Kingdom for less than 6 months.
