Tips & Tricks

After finding a prospective caregiver you can choose to directly send him or her a message. If the information is already given, contact the person via phone or Skype.

We always encourage families to interview a prospect person to person. If possible, we recommend in-person interviews. However, it may not always be possible because of the distance between both parties. In that case, we encourage the families to interview a candidate by phone. Only perform a telephone interview if you expect that both of you can agree on the job expectations and working conditions.

It is essential to ask the right questions during the interview. We recommend that you use the following information during the interview:

  1. Contact details     6. Create situational questions
Name, address, telephone number and email address. How does the caregiver deal with certain situations that are important to you?
  2. Motivation   7. Availability
Why does the prospective caregiver want to work as an au pair, nanny or babysitter? Starting date, duration of availability, and working hours.
  3. Knowledge   8. Work schedule
Level of education, degrees, certificates, and relevant knowledge. Tasks and expectations.
  4. Experience   9. Rate
Experience with certain age groups, skills, and experience with special needs. Salary / pocket money per hour, week, day or month and, if applicable, travel costs.
  5. Personality   10. References
Hobbies, special interests, and lifestyle. Ask for references and check them.
