Step 1
Complete the ONLINE APPLICATION FORM  – we will not call you UNLESS we receive this form

Step 2
If your application was successful we will contact you within 72 hours of submitting it. Look out for a Johannesburg number, as all our interview bookings are done through our head office in JHB. All interviews will be held in YOUR city.

Step 3
Once we have booked you for an interview please send the following to us:

  • a copy of your updated CV

Step 4
After your interview with us we will process your application, check your ID, your drivers license, your criminal status as well as your references etc.

Step 5
In the event that you pass the interview with us we will send you an email – please make SURE to read all the contents therein so that you are prepared with regards to the way forward.

Step 6
We will send your CV out to prospective families and should they wish to meet with you we will contact you to discuss further details etc. If you do not hear from us, it is because there is no suitable position for you at the time and / or families do not wish to meet with you. We will DEFINITELY call you should a family wish to meet with you as it is in our best interests to do so!

Step 7
In the event that a family wishes to meet with you we will contact you and setup the interview. We will email the interview details to you etc.

Step 8
You will attend the interview with the family. Thereafter please make sure to email us with your thoughts and feedback.

Step 9
Should the family elect to employ you we will contact you. We will not contact you every time a family interview is not successful. We will only contact you if a family interview was successful and they would like to offer the position to you.

Step 10
In the event that a family offers the position to you and you accept, we will send a Letter of Appointment & Acceptance to both you and the family. Remember once this has been sent you have COMMITTED to commencing employment with the family and if you change your mind after this, there will be consequences!

Step 11
Once the family has paid the placement fee you will be able to commence employment as per the start date. The family will pay your salary to you directly every month. You are NOT employed by the Agency.

Step 12
We will contact you now and then to see how things are going. If you have any problems make sure you contact us to chat about them so that we can give you sound advice in terms of the way forward etc.
