Where do I go for an interview for LunaChild?
We hold two interviewing locations. One in Manchester, UK and the other one in London, UK so you will attend the closest and most convenient one for you. That is if you are in the UK.
Here at LunaChild we no longer live in the land of the Dinosaurs and because our LunaNannies come from far and wide we also interview using other methods such as Skype. Therefore there is no need to panic if you are a Nanny in America or Dubai you are more than welcome to join us.
How soon could I be placed in a job?
Once our interviewing process with you is complete and our document checks are complete, we will store your details on our database.
The timing all depends on your location, the season and which type of service you are interested in applying for and because we understand that every position is different, we take pride in ensuring each match is to the best of our ability for both Family and LunaNanny.
What is the current average salary?
This can vary depending on your experience, location of the job, number of children and amount of hours requested per week. A more detailed breakdown can be sent to you via email or during interview discussion.
Where could I get a job?
The world is your oyster! We reach families requiring super nannies all over so you may find yourself in the heart of London or further afield such as Paris, Geneva or even the USA!
Who will arrange my contract?
We work closely with the family to arrange a contract that is suitable for what they require and then this is discussed in further detail with you before being signed.
How do you screen the families?
Just as we fully screen our Nannies, we also ensure we do thorough checks on all clients starting with multiple phone conversations, home visit (or Skype depending on location) and two references.
I don’t have an up to date DBS check, can you help me?
Of course! The form will be sent to you to complete along with payment details and we send this all off for you once you have filled out and sent back to us. Explanation of this fee will be given during the interview.
Will ongoing support and advice be given once I am in a job?
Absolutely! Our team are always on hand to answer any questions you may have or give tips and advice on all things childcare related.
We don’t just abandon you once you are placed, we want to ensure you are happy and safe at all times. If you have any questions, concerns or just want to talk to somebody we are only a phone call away, so please do not hesitate to contact us anytime.
