Hiring a nanny is a hugely important decision and one which should never be taken lightly and without due care and attention because the individual you hire will become a very large part of your child’s life and could, potentially, spend more time with them than you do!
You would want to find someone who will put your child’s needs ahead of their own, keep them safe, want them to be happy and fulfilled and make sure that they are occupied when you are not there. With all of these criteria to take into account, it’s hardly surprising that many parents find hiring a nanny very stressful.
Fortunately, with the right sort of thorough planning and preparation, you can make your search easier and also ensure that you find the right person for the job.
Here are five top things to consider when you are searching for the perfect nanny:
Once you have worked out exactly which of the above factors are most important to you and your family you should make a list of any absolutely crucial skills which are required. Once you have the basic list you need to prioritise them in order of importance. Some things will be more essential than others so having a list to refer to will help you once you begin to look at any applicants.
It’s also worth noting all these essential facts in your job description because you can avoid misunderstandings or applications from candidates who don’t fit your needs. If you are finding it hugely difficult to organise your essential needs and requirements it would probably be worth approaching a reputable agency rather than trying to find someone yourself. They will be able to help you find suitable interviewees for your individual circumstances and could help you to avoid endless hours interviewing unsuitable applicants.
