In response to the need for a flexible working pattern, many parents are combining both Nurseries and home based childcarers into their childcare support structure.

For this reason County Nannies has recently broadened the services we offer into nursery recruitment. We also recognize that in the current competitive and expanding industry of childcare provision, any Nursery is only as professional as the staff it employs.

We understand the demands of ever increasing administrative workloads on busy Nursery owners/Managers, and can save you the time of advertising your position and working your way through CVs.

We will take a full brief from you detailing all aspects of the job role you need to fill. We will also ask you about the dynamics within your Nursery and the workforce currently employed in order to ensure the best possible staff placement.  

The simplest way to register your job with us is by completing and submitting our On-Line Nurseries Registration Form.

You can also contact us by telephone or email to brief us on your job. We will also want to speak to you directly however in order to get a full picture of the person for whom you are looking. We will not ask you to pay any registration fee.

Following your specific brief, we will then talk to selected nursery staff about your job; forward their personal details to you, qualifying why we feel they may be suitable for your job. If you are interested in meeting them, we set up all interviews and provide feedback to both parties following each meeting.

We appreciate that most Nursery Owners/Managers will be experienced in interviewing prospective personnel.

However should you require guidance in this County Nannies is happy to assist.

Equally,when it comes to the final negotiations over terms and conditions of the job offer, County Nannies can act on your behalf to negotiate mutually acceptable terms.

We have registered candidates at all levels from Trainee/Nursery Assistant level 2 through to Manager level 3/4.

We also undertake regular college career talks and therefore have a source of recently qualified candidates looking for a step onto the nursery ladder.

All of our childcarers are interviewed in person and reference checked. We also ask them to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure if they have not already got one.

Any new member of staff can take a while to find their feet in a new Nursery setting particularly if the operating structure is quite different to their previous nursery.

We advise both parties to communicate as much as possible if initial problems arise. Many Nursery Nurses register with us looking for a move into Nannying work simply because they have felt unable to talk to their Nursery Manager.

If required we are always happy to provide advice where we can.
