The Recruitment Process in 7 Easy Steps:

All families are required to fill in and complete an application form. This helps us to understand exactly what your family needs and requires. Once your application form has been completed, it can be sent to Applications along with the proof of payment for the registration fee.

Once your registration fee has been paid and we have selected a few possible candidates for your family, we will send you the profiles of each of these candidates. You will then get an opportunity to read through the profiles and give us an indication as to which candidates you would like to meet with. There is no limit on how many candidates you can meet with and if you are not happy with any of the profiles that we have sent you, then we will send you a new list of profiles.

Once you have decided on the candidates that you would like to interview, we will set up the interviews according to your availability.

After the interview has taken place, we will contact both the au pair/babysitter and family for feedback. It is important that both parties feel comfortable with the arrangement before accepting the placement.

Once the family has decided on a candidate, we contact the candidate to confirm availability and when the employment will start.

Before the employment can commence, the placement fee and 50% deposit will have to be paid to Happy Home.

All clients are requested to rate our services after the service has been provided.



Some Frequently Asked Questions

In case you need a little more info, here are some questions that are frequently asked.

No, our sitters are not required to sign a contract of employment. However, both the family and sitter are required to sign a PET TLC FORM at the introduction meeting. This confirms that the sitter was provided with specific instructions and duties and he/she is aware of it.

At Happy Home ABC, we try our best to match families with suitable candidates within a 10km radius. A family will only be requested to pay the sitter petrol money when the radius is more than 10km.
