How many candidates are available in Jobs for Nannies database ?

What are my responsibilities as an employer ?

Interview and trial

If the Family wishes to arrange a face to face interview and/or a trial period, then the Family must cover all business expenses.

During trial periods, Candidates must be paid at an agreed rate.

Contract

​Nannies are employees of the family for whom they work. For this reason, parents who employ a nanny must take the steps necessary to establish themselves as legitimate employers.

The Family should provide the Candidate the Contract of Employment, where all duties, rights, obligations and conditions are clearly stated. All terms and conditions of the contract are regulated between the Candidate and the Family.

For all temporary positions (less than 3 months) and for all Maternity Nurse / Newborn Care Specialist positions, the Candidates status can be that of a self employed person.

Candidates must be independent contractors and will bill their services to the families. In that case, Candidates should provide their Terms and Conditions to the Family.​

Flights, Visas and work related expenses

For overseas positions : the family employer is responsible for providing the initial flight over to the country of the family home at the commencement of the employment along with the return flight back to the employee’s home country at the end of the employment contract. The employer will also usually provide one return flight home per year for the employee to take their annual leave.

The employer is also responsible for obtaining the appropriate work visa for their new employee. This includes insuring that all related costs are covered.

Taxes and health insurance

If the Nanny is working on a self employed basis, it is their responsibility to pay their social contributions. Otherwise, the employer is responsible for paying the employee’s social contributions.

 

Accommodation & Food

If the position is ” Live in “ :

– A private and separate bedroom must be provided. The bedroom must be clean and of a good condition. It is also recommended you supply the candidate with a separate bathroom and access to the internet.

​- The employee’s food has to be provided and paid for by the employer. The employer should provide 3 square meals a day.​

 

Travel times with the family

If you require the Nanny to travel, all travels related expenses (flights, accommodation, food etc…) must be covered by the family. Appropriate visas and travel/health insurance should also be provided by the family.

If the Nanny is required to work overtime during family travels time, then she should be paid overtime at an agreed hourly rate or rewarded time off in lieu to be taken at an agreed time.

Schedule & Salary Guide

Schedule

Full time Nannies usually work 40 – 50 hours per week over 5 days.

Some Nannies may agree to work up to 60 hours per week or to work 6 days per week if their wages reflect that.

However, if you require more than 50 hours per week, or more than 5 days per week, we recommend that you hire 2 nannies (1 Full time + 1 part time), as this is a much more attractive arrangement

If you require 24 hour care : in such cases we always recommend having two rotating nannies doing shift work (3 days on/3 days off, 2 weeks on/2 weeks off…)
