Making a Nanny Job Offer
If you have worked through a nanny agency, let them know your final decision and allow them to present your offer to the nanny. Putting together an offer is based on the hours you are requiring, whether it is live-in or live-out, the number of children (s)he will have to care for as well as the nanny’s experience, qualifications (if any) and demeanour. Also, it may be important to leave yourself a bit of ‘wiggle room’, so that you are able to reward the nanny’s performance with small incremental pay raises as the year goes on.
A nanny job offer consists of the following:
Pass this information along to your nanny agency and let them do the work. If your first choice nanny beat the second choice by only a hair, it is wise to ask your agency not to tell the runner-up until you receive a firm decision from the top candidate. Any nanny who is serious about a family will accept the offer if the salary and the hours fall within industry standards.
If a nanny cannot commit and seems ‘wishy-washy’, do not tolerate it for long. If a nanny is fickle from the beginning, can you imagine how (s)he will be in 6 months? 12 months? A nanny is supposed to make your life easier, not more complicated, so do not be afraid to rescind an offer if you have not made any progress within a few days of the initial offer being made.
