Hiring a Nanny Without an Agency

Worried about finding a nanny yourself? If you do find your nanny elsewhere, we're here to help make sure they're safe with a range of employment screening services

At Tinies we understand that parents often source childcarers through their own searches, but may struggle to carry out the checks necessary for pre-employment screening, and require help with employing childcarers (employment advice or payroll advice for example).

Once you're hired your nanny, we can also help with our nanny payroll service and a free legal helpline.

When you're hiring a nanny yourself...

There are a number of checks we'd advise before offering a job to a nanny:

DBS Enhanced Disclosure (formerly CRB)

This is a police check on a nanny, but it also checks to see that the nanny has not been entered on a register as not being suitable to work with children. The ideal is to have a DBS check of less than 1 year old (CRB checks are now known as DBS, the Disclosure and Barring Service).

Passport, identity and Visa checks

According to the Asylum and Immigration Act 2006 all UK employers have a legal duty to make basic document checks on each person they intend to employ. There are many illegal operations out there, providing workers with false documents and visas. It is important to be on the look-out. Proof of current address should also be obtained.

References

Most nannies will provide written references from previous employers. It is important to verify those references by talking to the past employers, and asking questions about the abilities of the nanny.

Gaps in a CV

When reviewing the nanny's CV, always check for employment history gaps.

Why use Tinies Nanny Screening Services?

If you are a busy parent, you may not have time to do all these things and it is hard to obtain a DBS check unless you are registered with the Disclosure and Barring Service or have access to an Umbrella Body of the DBS.

We are also very experienced in checking identity documents, and have in the past identified a number of false documents and visas held by potential childcarers.

Tinies screening services include all of the above, and can also include legal advice, as well as a payroll service.

I'd highly recommend Tinies for all your staffing requirements. As a nursery manager I know I can count on them for temp staff when I need.
