Why Nannies & Household Staff Should Work With An Agency

Updated: Jul 29, 2023


Finding the ideal nanny/household staffing job amidst numerous resources can be overwhelming for nannies. While platforms like Indeed, ZipRecruiter, Facebook groups, and local postings offer opportunities, the abundance of options can be daunting. How do you know you are finding the best opportunity for you?


Working with a nanny/household staffing agency can simplify the process and ensure the best and fair match for nannies.


  • SAVING TIME AND EFFORT

By collaborating with an agency, nannies & staff can save time and effort. Instead of navigating multiple job search sites and waiting for responses, agencies handle the heavy lifting. For instance, Patty Cake Nannies streamlined the process by creating a profile for nannies/staff based on their application and preferences and connecting them with suitable families. Moreover, we offer our services for free, eliminating any financial burden for nannies/household staff. (We do not take any fees from your salary.)


  • FAMILIES DEMONSTRATE A HIGHER LEVEL OF COMMITMENT AND ETHICAL RESPONSIBILITY

Moreover, families who choose to work with our agency demonstrate a higher level of commitment and ethical responsibility when it comes to finding the perfect fit for their household. These families genuinely value and prioritize treating their workers well. By partnering with Patty Cake Nannies, you can rest assured that you will be connected with families who appreciate your skills and contributions and uphold a strong commitment to creating a positive and respectful working environment.


  • EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONALS MATCHING YOU WITH THE RIGHT FAMILY

An added advantage of agency involvement is the expertise of experienced professionals in matching you with the right family. Job postings may not accurately represent the position, leading to surprises for nannies/staff. Agencies ensure transparency and clarity, accurately outlining your skills, training, and childcare style while aligning them with the family's requirements. This upfront information provides a successful and harmonious match.


  • WE UNDERSTAND YOUR NEEDS AND EDUCATE FAMILIES

Working with Patty Cake Nannies also grants nannies/staff access to professionals who understand the intricacies of the nanny industry. We are well-versed in fair compensation, benefits, vacation and sick time, overtime, and other industry norms. They educate families on these aspects and help create employment contracts that satisfy both parties. This comprehensive support ensures that the household staff-family relationship starts on the right track and increases the likelihood of long-term success.


  • WE PROVIDE GUIDANCE AND ASSISTANCE WITH CONTRACTS & NEGOTIATIONS

At Patty Cake Nannies, we go beyond simply connecting you with families. We provide valuable guidance and assistance throughout the entire process, including contracts and negotiations.
