How does it work?

There are 5 simple steps:

  1. Join: Join online for immediate access to thousands of carers! 
  2. Search & send emails: Enter your postcode and the search page will show the profiles of every carer in your area. You can narrow down the list by ticking 'advanced search' boxes based on your specific criteria. Then send email messages to arrange an interview. Please contact customer service if you will be sending more than 40 messages in one day. For Security reasons there is a daily limit. We suggest that you send out 6-8 messages if you just need a babysitter or 10-20 messages for a nanny or afterschool carer. Expect at least 50% replies and allow a 7 day turnaround, although it is likely you will gain a good number of replies within days.
  3. Post a job: If you are looking for a day-time or after-school carer we suggest using our effective Job Posting which gets promoted via the Find A Babysitter site, sent out via job alerts to registered carers and on Adzuna.
  4. Get notified: Click on "My Notifications" to set up an email alert every time a carer joins in your area, meeting your criteria.
  5. Select: Conduct phone screenings, interview and reference check to select the right carer for your family. After the initial introduction through Find A Babysitter, the babysitter or nanny is yours! No 'middle-man' and no ongoing agency overheads.
