Looking after the child is the biggest problem now days with working parents. A kid needs lots of attention and care the whole day. But unfortunately, our busy schedule and job profile doesn’t give us enough time for parenting. Therefore, babysitters or nannies have become the necessity to look after your child when you are busy in your job. Nannies handle all the responsibility of your kid, from washing clothes to room cleaning, cooking food to feed him. She also helps your kid in study and drives your baby home from the school.

She handles all her duties with full responsibilities. However, it is possible only if you have interviewed good and select a perfect nanny. Several nanny agencies also work in the market to help those working parents by providing the right match for your job requirement. But, what steps you must follow to find the right candidate for your requirement.

Decide the Requirement:

Before moving further in the nanny recruitment process, first make a list of all your requirements which you want to be fulfilled by the nanny you will be hiring. Do you want a live-in nanny or a live-out nanny? What professional and personality traits you want to see in a babysitter? What type of responsibilities you want to give her? Any type of specific skills, qualification, age, experience and training matter for you, then write them in the list. How much salary and benefits you can pay should also be in this list. This list can help you in creating the precise job description.

Set the Budget:

Every family has different financial conditions and have own budget to spend on various expenditures. If childcare service has become must for you, then you should set a budget for it to avoid any financial difficulty later for your other needs. Calculate the budget, including all the expenses on several activities, annual increment, taxes, and bonuses. Keep your total earnings also in mind while calculating. This can help you in deciding how much you can afford to pay your babysitter.

Post a Job Description:

You are going to become the employer. So, don’t you think you should have an enticing job description to advertise your requirement? A descriptive and precise job description is when posted, creates a good understanding between the employers and candidates seeking for the job. You can post it on local newspapers or other portals for handling all the hiring workload. If you want to get the reliable results in less effort, then share your job requirements with nanny agencies.

INTERVIEW the Candidate:

Interviewing helps in finding the right candidate for your job. If you are handling all the searching and hiring process individually, then you should first go for a telephone interview to make an initial screening. If you have contacted the agencies, then you have reduced lots of effort in researching. You just need to interview the filtered candidates the agency is suggesting you. Ask her question which can describe you about her attitude, behaviour, professionalism and experience.

Background Check:

Background check is always on your top priority before giving the job offer to any nanny. You should request to show her identity, passport, license and other identification documents, which is must analysing that everything is okay.

Reference Check:

It is always good to check references to find out exactly how good the nanny is which you are going to hire. You can ask to those references for experience and quality in the childcare. This can help you in finding her real attitude, discipline, behavior, and punctuality. Always do the double check the reference to make sure that you are not trapped by the agency or the candidate.

After confirming the reliability and following all these above mentioned steps, you can issue the Job Offer and Employment Contract to the candidate you find the perfect for your requirement.
