The Support of a Reputable Agency
Snap was established in 2001 and we have worked with many different families and clients over that time. While working with clients with disabilities or additional needs in a private home is one of the most rewarding jobs, we appreciate it is not always the easiest. We are here not only to match you to great jobs, but to support you throughout the recruitment process.
Professional but Personal Service
Our business is focused on achieving an objective for our clients - and we recruit motivated people like you to achieve that. We understand the significant part you are going to play. Snap was started by a special needs nanny, Sally Britton and Andrew Knight who has a daughter Camilla, who has cerebral palsy, so we have an understanding from both sides!

Helping You get the Job You Want!
When we put you forward for a position, we will advise you how to best present your experience in the very best way to give you the greatest chance of being offered that position. We have online templates for writing the best CV and Supporting Statements for Snap jobs. We will promote you and highlight your specific skills and particular qualities to our clients. We actively promote you and highlight your experience and availability to clients and case managers who may have a need for your skills through our 'Latest Candidates' webpage and other marketing tools. Snap will never disclose your personal / contact information without your express permission.
We will give you tips regarding your job interview, these may be general best practice tips or very specific ones for that job.
DBS Police Checks
We will process and pay for your DBS check once we have placed you in a position and will pay for the first year of your DBS Update Service. (We highly recommend you continue to keep this updated yourself annually after the first year).
Some clients already have their own contact of employment, but if not we will provide one for you and your employer.
We are members of Nannytax Agency+ and can now support clients and candidates with any employment law enquiries they may have. For example complex contractual enquiries such as holiday entitlement and statutory sick pay as well as support and advice on Employer and Employee rights.
Looking After Your Documents
Ideally we like to meet everyone in person, but appreciate if you live far away this is not always possible, in which case we ask you post your original documents. If you post documents, we will scan and securely save your documents digitally. We will always endeavour to return your documents the same day. We ask you to provide the appropriate Special Delivery envelope and stamps so we can do so safely. We appreciate this is not the cheapest way to send documents but it is the safest. If you have not provided the means for us to return your documents, we will contact you to ask you to do so. We will store your documents securely but please note, this can only be for a limited period.
An Introductory Agency
Snap is an introductory agency that means we identify potentially suitable candidates for our clients, carry out thorough screening and interviews and then send your details to the client. As an introductory agency, we will never be your employer, but we will of course be happy to advise you and your new employer on employment matters.
What We Ask of You
We will happily put in a great deal of work on your behalf to find you a great job.
For us to be able to do this, we need to work together. We will always give you all the information, and we expect the same in return. We work with families and clients who may be under a great amount of pressure and we only want to work with people who can help their situation, not complicate it!
