Recruitment Process of Permanent Nannies
Understanding your needs through thorough consultation.
Our recruitment process involves personalised consultation and a comprehensive questionnaire. This enables us to establish the precise job requirements and what is really important to you as a family, which in turn, helps us to find and match the perfect nanny for your family.
Job brief review.
A job brief is then sent to you to approve before creating a short list of suitable nannies to interview.
We interview every nanny, check references and ensure they have a WWCC and an up to date First Aid and CPR Certificate.
An initial engagement fee of $75 + gst is required to be paid which is then offset from the placement fee when your nanny is placed.
A shortlist of the best matched nannies and their profiles are then sent to you to review so you can decide who you would like to interview. At this point our recruitment fee of $300 + gst, which is also offset from the placement fee, is required to be paid.
Offer & Acceptance
Once you have chosen your preferred nanny we will make them an offer, and if accepted, arrange start dates, negotiate pay and take care of everything up until the day they start. The balance of the placement fee becomes payable on the nanny’s first day of work*.
* Please note: if you nominate not to engage Little Lovelies Payroll Service, and choose to pay your nanny directly, it is then your responsibility to provide your nanny with an employment contract and arrange other legislative matters.
