There are alot of reasons to work with us and you will see why but mainly our founder was a nanny for years and truly loves what she does! Her goal is for you to be happy and for the families to be happy! You will feel supported, heard and understood when you work with us.
We never charge our nannies any money to apply!
we never take a cut of your pay or work off commission
We work directly with you to help place you in the right position
We offer interview prep and support before you speak with our families
We NEVER post or share ANY of your personal information with our families, outside companies, social media, google, etc. without your permission. We do not collect your information for anything other than to help you get matched correctly.
You only have to apply ONCE! You can apply with us now and be eligible for all our current or future jobs so you never need to fill out extra paperwork! Once you finish with us you just have to email us if you see a new job. No need to ever apply twice!
We only call your references once! We collect your references and after our zoom call with you we call each one once and take notes so that they never have to be bothered again by us! This eliminates them being called constantly by many families. (Families may request to speak directly to them right before you are hired but not when you are only in the interviewing stages)
Working with us gives you an advantage to searching on your own because we collect and create a profile for you so when you decide what family to apply for all we do is submit it!
We require a trial period to benefit you and the family to ensure it is something you are happy to commit to (You even get paid!)
We offer recommendations, feedback that comes directly from our families and are always open and honest. One of our goals to build a relationship that lasts with us!
We facilitate the interviews, scheduling, trial periods and there for you each step!
You are hired directly by each private family and will work for them NOT US! We are here as a third party matching service to help you utilize your skills, get paid fairly and ensure you understand all aspects of what is required of you before you commit!
We setup a work agreement/contract between you and the family to ensure everything is transparent. This covers pay, hours, vacation time, travel, car usage, responsibilities, requirements, termination and length of employment commitments.
