HOW IT WORKS

AS A FULL SERVICE AGENCY,
WE ARE SIMPLIFYING YOUR NEXT HIRE.

STEP 1:
Getting to Know You

Our initial conversation will consist of learning about your day to day needs, what skills you are looking for in your hire, any personality or professional qualities that will mesh well with you, and the schedule and the scope of the role. If you are seeking a nanny or family assistant, we will focus on your family's goals and philosophies and how your caregiver can carry those out on a daily basis. We also take time to learn about each member of your household or family along with any specialized training requirements or needs. Following this, we collect an intake form and set up a Family Meeting (virtual) to finalize the details before kicking off your search. 

STEP 2:
Customized Search

Once we have a foundation of your needs, your customized candidate search begins! As we recruit, we may look through our current pool of pre-screened candidates, or it may be someone new to our network. Either way, this process is customized for each family, and we search based on your specific needs. Each candidate is not only personally interviewed, evaluated, reference checked prior to being introduced to you, but we also screen them specifically for your role. We'll hand-select candidates who match your needs to introduce you to. On average, our clients meet 2-6 candidates. 

STEP 3:
Interviews & Trials

You'll receive candidate profiles to review and decide who to interview. Interviews are arranged by our staff and led by you, with the SSN hiring packet in hand to assist in asking the right questions. After you have interviewed a strong candidate, we encourage a paid working interview or trial day before making a hiring decision. Each family's privacy and needs are of paramount importance to us. We only post discrete job descriptions and do not have public or private family profiles that are shared with candidates. Last names of clients or candidates are not disclosed until after an interview. Our thorough job descriptions keep your information confidential and private until after interviewing with potential candidates. 

STEP 4:
Hiring The Right Fit

You're almost there! Pending a successful trial, our team can help facilitate a formal offer of employment. Upon an accepted offer, we prepare you with a customizable Professional Employment Agreement template that will define and outline your employee's responsibilities, terms of employment, benefits, and more. This establishes a great start with you and your household employee. We will supply all the support materials during this process and provide valuable resources & referrals for hiring your employee such as payroll, insurance and more.

STEP 5:
Continued Support

Southern Standard Nannies offers continuing support for our family clients.  We are here to answer questions, assist with Back Up Care, and help with the growing needs of each family.
