Guide to Interviewing a Nanny

The first interview may take the form of a telephone interview, where you can get a general feel for the nanny and assess her suitability. We then recommend that you meet up. For overseas positions this means either you flying in to London, or nanny flying to see you, or arranging for a London based friend/relative to conduct interviews on your behalf. We are happy to email photographs of the candidate, and can arrange a video conference too. For UK based positions we do recommend more than one interview, the second being more in-depth and with the children so you can see how well the nanny interacts.

Suggestions for questions during the interview

1

If they are qualified ask them if they enjoyed the course and if they have found it helpful, since they started work.
