I vote for nannyjob as well. Hi Jura!

I also recommend a book titled "The Good Nanny Guide" which can be purchased at Waterstones and a browse through

Ask around here for interview tips and questions. Don't waste your time interviewing anyone who can not produce CONTACTABLE references.

Burlington Nannies are good.
I have advertised on nannyjob and it can work, as others have said I would just ask for original certificates of qualification if they have one, and first aid, and don't accept a CRB over 12 months old. Ask to see all written references and ask if these are contacble. Its not always possible for the nanny to provide numbers for all referees if they have lots of years experience as people do move around, but you should expect to speak to the nanny's last two employers at least.

The link didn't work properly before sorry.

See! I'm not the only one who doesn't do links.

Besides, Jura, do you want me to teach you how to copy and paste?
