Why use a nanny agency to find a nanny in Wandsworth?
Some families might wonder why they should hire a nanny through an agency when they can conduct their own search. It is true that you get a wider selection of candidates if you do the search on your own by using an alternative source to advertise like an online jobs site, but one of the biggest disadvantages of using this method is the number of applications you will get from unqualified candidates. Browsing though these applications will not only add more stress to the hiring process but will also take too much of your time. It is often like finding a needle in a haystack.
Meanwhile, a nanny agency will only put forth candidates that had been thoroughly checked. Little Ones nanny agency in Wandsworth receives thousands of applications per month and from these we hand pick only the best candidates to interview face to face. Only a small percentage of our nanny candidates are selected for interview with our Wandsworth families and these candidates are qualified, compliant with requirements and are trained. We are experienced in interviewing nannies and undertaking relevant reference checks and DBS or police checks. We also ensure that the nannies you meet are interested in the role and salary package that you are willing to offer.

It is Little Ones’ chief concern that all nannies undergo an extremely strict vetting procedure which we have painstakingly developed over the years to ensure we cover every aspect.
Our process includes a face to face interview with each nanny candidate which is recorded. An interview lasts for about 40 minutes and this includes a thorough assessment of their personal and work experience. We also take great care to understand each nanny’s method of looking after children and educating them, as well as their ethos, values and attitude.
The safety, security and comfort of your family is Little Ones’ absolute priority which is why we aim to place only the most competent and committed nannies in roles throughout Wandsworth. Our consultants take verbal reference checks following a strict reference process.
