If you want to make contact with a potential match, become a VIP Member so you can send and receive messages and be really proactive in your search. VIP Membership is just £10 a year for students while parents pay a monthly subscription of £15.
Here’s the really clever bit – our smart search goes way beyond simple location matches. Parents can filter students according to the subject they are studying too. Meanwhile, students can search for parents by profession, so they can link with a mentor with experience or contacts in the industry they want to break into.
Once you have found your ideal match, you negotiate hourly rates and terms of employment directly. Student Nannies does not charge a commission and there are no hidden costs – we just want to help you discover a support network that you may previously not have been able to tap into. The Student Nannies ethos is all about building relationships and helping each other.
We also recommend that parents ask if students have a DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service) or, if not, if they’d be willing to undergo one. For peace of mind Student Nannies Ltd can organise an Enhanced DBS check on a potential Student Nanny for you, with their permission. This includes checks for spent and unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings, plus any additional information held by local police that’s reasonably considered relevant to the role being applied for.
We’ve partnered with Devon County Council’s Safer Recruitment Service to provide a fast, secure, cost effective Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) – all done online. Devon County Council is a Registered Umbrella Body with the Disclosure & Barring Service and provides DBS checks to over 900 organisations across the private, public and voluntary sectors including Universities, Schools, Academies, Colleges, Pre-schools & Nurseries, and Child & Adult Services. Average turnaround time from submission of check to receipt of disclosure is just 5 days.
In order to make a DBS check via studentnannies.com, first ensure you are a VIP member as only VIP members are able to make DBS applications.
To begin your application, click on the Safety button in our top navigation bar. Once you’re on the Safety page, click on the ‘Create a New DBS Application’. At this stage you will only need to provide some very basic information: the full name and email address of the Student Nanny you would like to undertake the DBS Check; your own name and email address details; and provide details to make an online payment of £65.
The Student Nanny will then receive an email from Devon County Council requesting they complete an online form, which will take approximately 15 minutes – they will need to provide: National Insurance Number; previous 5-year address history; full name history including middle names.
Once the Student Nanny has completed the form correctly, you will then be emailed by Devon County Council’s Safer Recruitment Service to confirm the Student’s ID. In order to do this you will have to see three forms of ID. Please only accept valid, current and original documents, do not accept photocopies. For more information on the ID approval process, see the link in Useful Links below.
Once you have confirmed the ID of the Student, the team at Devon County Council will manage the DBS check process and once this is completed the Student Nanny will be provided with a certificate.
