Benefits & Advantages of Using a Company to Find a Maternity Nurse

Congratulations! If you are reading this then you (or perhaps someone close to you) are expecting a baby and thinking about employing a Maternity Nurse.

This is such a special and unique time for expectant mothers and it is especially important that you feel completely reassured that you will have the best and most suitable Maternity Nurse for you and your family: one with the right experience and approach.

You may be considering undertaking the whole process yourself, however it is worth bearing in mind that this can expose you to certain risks (regarding references and checks) and it is a long process that will require a lot of your time and attention.

Using a company, such as Eden Private Staff, will take away all those worries and you will have all their expertise and experience in the Maternity sector at your fingertips!

Here are some of the main benefits you will enjoy by putting your Maternity Nurse search into the hands of an experienced Maternity team:

Your Peace of Mind:

One of the most appealing benefits of using a company to do your search is the security, reassurance and peace of mind that comes with it.

Before you even start looking at CV’s of suitable candidates, Eden will have already done a thorough vetting and selection process – only registering those candidates who show a commitment to their Maternity career and their CV must show a steady and trackable work history.

Eden will interview every prospective candidate and references for the last 3 years (at least) will for contacted. Using an online jobsite will not give you this amount of pre-screening protection in advance. 

Guaranteed Expertise:

Eden will undertake all the relevant work needed to attract the right candidates to apply for your specific role and they also know just where to look!  A suitable and targeted advert on their website will generate the right sort of interest and assistance can also be given to clients with writing the job description/contracts and agreements. The team can also devise/help with a set of specific interview questions and can undertake all the necessary paperwork for you regarding a job offer. Doing the groundwork online means you will need to do all of this by yourself.

Time Saved For You:

We all lead such busy lives and leaving a company to get on with all the hard work that goes into finding the best Maternity Nurse for you means you can get on with everything else!

Not only will Eden Private Staff do all the relevant advertising and paperwork, they will also save you an enormous amount of time by shifting through all the applications, weeding out those that are not suitable and identifying those that are. Once that process is completed then they will interview, register and vet the prospective candidates and only then will the successful few be sent to you for consideration.

This takes a good deal of time and organisation which is not easy if you are attempting to do the search and selection yourself.

Once the best two or three candidates have been targeted and selected for interview, Eden will then, on behalf of the client, set up an interviewing schedule, liaising with both parties throughout the process. If you are not familiar with interviewing, it can be a daunting prospect without a little help and advice on what to look for, what to ask and so on.

Following interviews, Eden will gather all the necessary feedback in order for you to make an informed decision about the candidates. Further interviews can be arranged if necessary and essentially you will be assisted through to making a job offer to the best candidate. All these steps and processes take time. If you are going it alone, you may not have enough time and consequently the search will lose impetus or worse, you could make a bad decision.

On-Going Support For You:

Eden provides support and guidance not just during the search, but also after the placement has been made and the Maternity Nurse settles into the new role.

Teething problems can be nipped in the bud quickly and a third party dealing with potential issues makes for a smoother transition for everyone. It is always just good to know that at the start (for both parties) there is a friendly and experienced voice at the end of the phone. Using an online site will mean that once you have made your decision you will need to go with it and hope everything works out.


Eden offers replacement guarantees after the commencement of the placement (subject to contract) giving you peace of mind should something go wrong in the early stages.


Statistics show that by using a company for your search, you are more likely to retain your chosen candidate for longer. The depth, focus and personalised nature of the search and selection process by a company means that finding a Maternity Nurse with the right experience and qualifications has a much higher chance of success. An online jobsite means a less targeted approach so possibly a lower chance of success and retention.
