The Recruitment Process

Registering Your Vacancy

To start the process, we will need you to please complete a registration form so we have all the details of the position and your requirements. Please click here. Of course if you would like to have an information talk with a recruiter first, please don't hesitate to call on 00 44 20 7729 2200 or arrange a Skype conversation. Our Skype address is snap_childcare, but please email or call first to arrange the most convenient time. 

Opening Hours

We are open Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.30pm. Saturdays 9.00am to 3.00pm (excluding weekends that fall on a UK Bank or Public Holiday). 

Our recruiters are approachable, professional and knowledgeable - and will be pleased to answer any question you have. 

Executive Search

Snap Care offers an Executive Search for International clients. We appreciate International clients often have urgent and / or very specific requirements. To ensure we are able to meet your needs and the allocate time and resources required specifically for you and your job, all placements outside the UK require a retainer fee of 30% of the final placement fee to be paid in advance, prior to us starting our search. 

This amount is on account and will be deducted from your placement fee when we place a suitable candidate to work with your family. In the unlikely event that we are unable to send you details of any suitable candidates based on the criteria you have provided, we will of course refund the total amount, but this amount is non-refundable in the event that you cancel the assignment or change the details of the position.

The Recruitment Process

A designated recruiter will be assigned to you.  Your recruiter will have an in-depth conversation with you once we have received the details of your position via our vacancy registration form to gain full insight into your needs.

Bespoke Job Description
Your recruiter will then create and send you a bespoke job description and full cost analysis for your approval. Once you have approved the costs and job description, we will ask you to pay the 30% retainer fee and as soon as this is received, your recruiter will immediately begin the recruitment campaign for your role.  We will post up your job on our website and place any additional advertisements on your behalf, to ensure we attract the most suitable candidates. We will also search through our extensive database built up since 2001 to assess suitability for the role of candidates already registered with us. 

Candidate Details
We will send you full details of short-listed candidates who have successfully been interviewed. Details include: their full CV, references (written and verbally verified, wherever possible) and confirmation of the documentation that has been verified. 

Interviews & Trials
We will arrange interviews and where appropriate, trials for you. (We highly recommend arranging a trial before offering a permanent position). 

Employment Contracts 
Once you have formally offered the position in writing and the candidate has accepted (also in writing), we will assist with contract negotiation / mediation. We can provide a draft contract for your information, but we are unable to provide final contracts as these will need to be subject to local employment law, not those of the UK. We do ask employers and employees to sign an agreement to confirm specific details that may be outside of a typical employment contract. This is in addition to your contract.

Your final invoice will be raised (Minus the 30% retainer fee already paid). Payment is required prior to the candidate’s start date. Payment can be made by direct bank payment. 

Your recruiter will let you know of any outstanding candidate documents, for example, the candidate’s DBS (police check) may still be in process with the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS). 

Your recruiter will make placement follow up calls when the candidate has first started, after a few weeks and then after 3 months to ensure everything is running as smoothly as expected.
