Finding your nanny.
Schedule a Needs Analysis
To kick the process off, a placement specialist will conduct an in-depth family interview to learn about your needs. We take this stage in our process very seriously and charge a standard screening fee of $350 for our time. These consultations typically run 45-60 minutes but may take longer.
Our recruiting team works together to hand-select 1-5 screened and qualified candidates for you to meet with, based on the resultsof your needs analysis. A tremendous amount of work will have gone into the selections and we consider them recommendations, not suggestions. Meeting with each of them will insure your final hiring decision is balanced and informed.
Choose Who You Want To Hire
We’ll help you to draft, present, and negotiate acceptance of an offer letter with an outline of job duties and expectations. Our third-party guidance makes your transition to becoming an employer seamless.
Remove Your Candidate from the Open Market
Once you’ve selected your candidate, it’s time to remove them from consideration for other families. At Seattle Nanny Network, we offer placement fees on a sliding scale, so you’ll be able to review your options and select the one that works for you.
After your new caregiver has accepted your offer and the placement has been made, our work is far from over. We’ll be there throughout the entirety of your new relationship to help with retention counseling, training, and ongoing support
