How We Work

The Recruitment Process

1. Complete a Vacancy Registration Form

To start the process, we ask you to complete a registration form so we have all the details of the position and your requirements. If you're ready to do that now, click here. To speak to a consultant first, please don't hesitate to call on 020 7729 2200. Our consultants are approachable, professional and knowledgeable and will be pleased to answer any questions you have. 

2. Home Visit:

Once we have your registration form, we will arrange to come and meet you and your child or children (for all permanent positions, throughout the UK). This is a really important part of our service; we know that for really successful placements, we need to match on  personality fit just as much as experience. There is no charge for a home visit - just an understanding that you are committed to using our services.

3. Job Description and Costs:

Following our visit to you, we will send you a job description and costs. Once we have your approval, we will get started on our search! 

4. Attracting Candidates to Your Job:

We will post your job description on our website; we are known in the industry as the specialist agency and candidates regularly check our website for new jobs. We will place additional adverts as appropriate at no extra cost. Your job advert will be distributed to targeted candidates on our extensive database, built up since 2001.

5. Sending Candidate Details: 

Once we have identified & interviewed potential candidates, we will send you their full details. We will send as many suitable applicants as we have identified, we don't hold back any candidates. Equally we won't send anyone unless we really feel they are an appropriate match. It may be 2 or 3 candidates, or only 1.

6. Arranging Interviews:

If you also like the candidates, we'll coordinate interviews, but we do encourage you to do this as soon as you can; good candidates don't hang for around! You may wish to arrange a trial or 2nd interview for candidates you feel are potentially a good fit. It is usual to pay individuals for 2nd interviews / trials.

7. Offering the Job

You may wish to offer the candidate the job directly or we are happy to do so on your behalf.  If they are not quite right, just give us your feedback and we'll continue searching - we are happy to do this, having the wrong person is worse than having no-one!

8. Draft Contact & Payroll Information:

SNAP have had a long association with Nannytax and are a member of their unique service for nanny agencies 'Agency+'.  As a member we can support clients 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. 

We will send you a bespoke draft contract based on the Nannytax contract of employment. We will ask you to provide any additional information we may need and then make changes to the final contract for you if you wish. You are of course welcome to use your own contract, in which case we ask for a copy for our records. 


9. After Placement Support:

We will contact you to see how everything is going; when the candidate has just started to see how they are settling in, then after a couple of weeks and lastly after 3 months. Our involvement then drops back, but will be very happy to hear from you if you have any questions or just to let us know how things are going at any point.
