Pretty good side job!
I decided to apply for Koru Kids as the adverts were just everywhere.
1. You apply online
2. Phone Interview (understanding your work experience, why you want to work there, your qualities)
[[If you pass that]]
3. Online Course, fill out several questions and create your 'nanny cv, which is what potentially gets sent to the families'
4. Attend a boot-camp- 2 hours, not rigorous as it sounds, just tips, the do's and don'ts and advice
5. The matching process begins, you may have to prompt them to remember you send you matches
- They're great at finding suitable families, I in total met with about 8 before I met my 'match'
- One thing I think is a huge time waster is that Koru Kids seem to have a poor screening process for families, for instance some family profiles are about 4 lines whereas some are 15 lines.
I must note that families will most likely not disclose if their child has disorders or illnesses that a non-qualified experienced should have to deal with this happened to me 3/8 times.
Also I think that it is very wrong that you get paid £9 per family not per child so one person looking after 1 child would get the same as a person looking after 3 children but that is the nanny's choice!
flexible, good pay, responsive staff - quick replies, open to give advice
poor family screening, unprofessional with communication i.e adding to whatsapp group chats
