Both nannies and families can register for the online nanny agency at Nanny-Agency.com for free, though paid memberships include more services, as well as the ability to access contact details for job posters and seekers. Memberships for this online nanny service are offered in both one-month and nine-month packages.
As a member of Nanny-Agency.com, you gain access to a nanny search service that includes advanced search options, a full-service email center and the ability to provide suggestions about the service. Providers on the site offer a range of services, including traditional child care, mother’s help and nursing. You can also find applicants willing to provide housekeeping services or search for nannies in other countries if you plan to travel with your family.
Nanny-Agency.com lets you adjust settings on your profile so that the online nanny finder can match you with possible candidates. The service sends you an email when new providers who might be a match for your needs register. The automated notification means you don’t have to spend a lot of time searching the nanny listings, and you don’t have to search on a regular basis to see any new profiles.
This nanny service doesn’t include hiring tools such as interview checklists or background checks, so you might have to seek those services elsewhere or check criminal and other records yourself. Since the service places nannies in all countries, it does provide some information and some assistance regarding visa paperwork.
Both providers and families can add documents to their profiles in Microsoft Word format so that you can peruse nanny resumes or upload a list of criteria so that potential nannies can read about your needs before they contact you. Nanny-Agency.com posts a liability waiver regarding the content that others upload to its site, so they are not guaranteeing that anything you read in a profile or nanny application is accurate. You have to conduct your own reference checks and interviews to decide if a potential nanny is providing an honest profile.
Nanny-Agency.com does not provide any refunds on membership fees. Even if you cancel a membership before the termination date, you will not receive a partial refund. The site does provide global nanny listings and lets you search for international nannies who are willing to move to your location.
