Welcome Nannies

Christian Nannies will listen to the needs of each candidate and best match these with potential families. As a professional nanny agency, we strive for our candidates to stay with their chosen families for as long as possible, as this brings stability and structure for the entire family, which helps create a strong bond between the child and the nanny, which is fundamental to the child’s development.

Therefore clear and transparent communication is paramount between the professional relationship between candidates and families. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you simply need some guidance or have any questions.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

The Process

Step 1

The candidate will send us their current CV to view. If we are happy to proceed, the candidate will complete an application form.

If we are satisfied to proceed with the application the candidate will be invited for an online interview.

If we are satisfied after processing the candidate’s application we will then arrange to meet the candidate in person to view their original documents.

If the candidate prefers not to meet in person during the pandemic the candidate may choose to get their original documents certified by a professional person who is authorised to certify documents as a true copy of the original documents.

Thereafter the candidate will be informed if they have registered successfully or if they have been unsuccessful.

Step 2

When a suitable role within a family becomes available, we will ask if the candidate would like to be put forward for the position.

If the candidate is invited to attend an interview with a family, we will arrange this meeting and if needed any other interviews that may be requested by the family.

If a family decides to offer the candidate employment and the candidate accepts the families offer, Christian Nannies will arrange an agreed start date.

Step 3

The candidate will receive a drafted employment contract from their new employer and will be given the opportunity to ask any questions or request to make changes.

Both the family and candidate must be satisfied and happy before the signing of the final employment contract.

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Ofsted registration fee costs £103 per year. This registration needs to be renewed yearly. To become registered with Ofsted on the voluntary register, the nanny will need to meet certain requirements.

Requirements to Register

Tax-Free Childcare

Nannies that register with Ofsted will be able to sign up for the Tax-Free Childcare. This allows working parents to benefit from this government scheme. Signing up to this scheme is a very simple process. Tax-Free Childcare is gradually replacing the current Childcare Vouchers. For more information regarding the government scheme, Nanny Tax is the government’s advisory forum, helping nannies and employers.
