At the center of what we do is the safety of your child.
If a candidate can lie on her application, her CV and her supporting paperwork -- then what else can she lie about?
We interview and assess CVs every day. This is what we do.
We have honed our skill in this area, over years and years of interviewing - initially in the corporate and technical sector and now in the domestic sector.
We have gained a unique insight into evaluating fraudulent certificates, fake references and wading through masses of information in this particular field to drill down to getting a clear and precise impression of the candidate.
We are able to cross check information due to our extensive and organised database.
We can check a CV supplied 1, 5 or 8 years ago and check this information against what is supplied now. This is invaluable when candidates lie about employment history or supply false references.
Who keeps every CV they have every received? We do - for this very reason.
We are not feeding CVs to you as part of an ad response.
We are evaluating, shortlisting and aligning the shortlist to your specific needs -- we are adding value to the process.
We spend hours, days and weeks interviewing candidates with extensive structured interviews.
On average our interviews are 2 - 3 hours long per candidate. It may seem extreme, when most other agencies do much shorter interviews. We want to know the candidate so when we refer her to you, we do know her.
If you have seen the profiles and the detailed CVs which Happy Helpers supplies, you will recognise and appreciate the the time and detail we put into building each one.
You are gaining the value of our notes and our insights, and our experience when you go over our candidates.
We ask all the mundane questions.
We get all the critical information so that when you interview you are looking for a MATCH. You do not need to run over information you should know upfront when shortlisting.
More than a quarter of the candidates we interview are found to have lied or committed fraud, and are regretted.
It is an alarming amount.
As discouraging as it seems, it makes us work harder and smarter to red flag those candidates who still try to get through. Someone always will -- and we will keep getting better to stop these candidates getting to you. A dishonest candidate is a risk to your home.
Keeping in mind that Celeste personally checks every application that we receive -- every one.
We only shortlist, on average, 4 - 6% of the applications we receive, to call back for interviews. That is hundreds of candidates we do not feel meet the minimum standards we request when candidates apply.
If we are catching this many candidates who are lying to get a job - how many are getting through from less strenuous checking through other sources?
We are good at what we do.
We love working with clients.
We love helping a stressed parent find the right Nanny and that moment when some of the anxiety evaporates.
We love meeting the incredible candidates we work with - and recommend these wonderful ladies on to you.
Do we get it right all the time? No. Does that stop us trying to improve our systems, our methods and keep striving to getting better? Not for one minute. Not when the safety of your family and child is at the center of what drives us to keep improving.
We want to be part of your journey in finding the right Nanny and Housekeeper for your home. We know how important it is.
