Moreover, each candidate is personally interviewed at our office in Warsaw. Our candidates are nonsmokers and have several years of childcare experience as a nanny, babysitter, au pair or governess working both in Poland and abroad.

Our recruitment process is as follow:

STAGE 1  understanding your needs

Once we receive your Recruitment order, we discuss the offer details. Prowork agency works on a matching basis. Our priority is to present you only the candidates who meet your criteria and have the right personality and attitude to be a childcarer. We do our best to present you a shortlist of selected candidates usually within 1-2 weeks; however, it can take longer depending on vacancy details.

STAGE 2  matching nannies & families

We send you a shortlist of selected candidates with their full application including CV, references, photos and  agency interview notes. You can interview selected candidates over the phone, via skype or in person. We help set up these interviews and assist you in the whole matching process.

Prowork will provide you with the complete files of the accepted person including diplomas, medical certificate and a clear state of criminal record (if required). All the documents are verified and translated into English.

STAGE 3  contract

Once the successful candidate is accepted by both sides (the family and the nanny) the details of contract are discussed; Prowork consultants will help you draft a work agreement.

Although we do not offer employment services, we can advise you on the best options for employment of your nanny: employment contract, self-employment or via temporary employment agency(outsourcing and payroll services). Please note that the contract conditions need to be compliant with the existing law in a given country.

STAGE 4  follow up and guarantee

We offer post-placement support so whatever your concerns, we will be here to help you. We are happy to share with you our many years’ experience in international childcare and culture differences.
