Are you an Experienced Nanny looking for your perfect family?
Register with the agency today!
I am knowledgeable, friendly and work hard to find the right placement for all nannies.
Whilst I am friendly and approachable, I am passionate about providing the best possible childcare. This means only recruiting Nannies with the skills and knowledge to make a difference. I therefore operate a strict registration policy only accepting candidates with a proven track record in childcare or Early Years Education.
I also look for excellent references and will naturally expect you to have a current DBS and First Aid Certificate, although these are documents I can help you obtain.
If you believe you have the skills and experience to have a positive influence on a child’s life then please contact me to register. I will then contact you to arrange an interview.
Interviews are based in Harrogate.
I require a minimum of two proofs of identity
Check qualifications – see all certificates
At least two written references and one verbal reference - these are followed up
I require a valid First Aid Certificate – these last 3 years
I require a valid DBS (enhanced Police check)
In the situation where a candidate does not hold either First Aid or DBS, I require candidates to agree that they are happy to obtain these and have them ready for interviews with families.
Although not compulsory (unless they need to register with OFSTED), I always recommend that nannies hold public liability insurance.
I also encourage nannies to have business use on their car insurance if they are using their own car for work.
As well as formal checks, I personally interview all applicants and use my knowledge, skills and experience to determine the suitability for the position.
I take the role of sourcing candidates very seriously. I look for candidates that are 'career nannies', those that have a good education, a kind and nurturing nature, a healthy attitude to outdoor play and understand the importance of a good diet. I believe that a sense of fun and humour are essential and a firm but kind approach to steer children in the right direction.
DBS Checks (previously called CRB Checks)
All nannies registered with The Yorkshire Nanny Company must have a DBS (Disclosure & barring service) check prior to commencing work with a family. Ideally nannies should be registered on the DBS Online Update Service - or willing to have a new check and join.
