Schedules - All domestic personnel position types registered at GoNannies.com must indicate their availability. They may be available part-time or full-time or both, and may also indicate whether they are available during the week, evenings, or on an occasional or as needed basis. Look for how a candidate has answered the "When Available" question to best determine their availability.
Benefits - While offering benefits to an employee is not required by law, doing so can make your position more attractive to candidates. However, mother’s helpers who work occasionally or as needed generally do not expect to receive benefits.
