Dangers of going into a family privately without using a reputable company/Agency.

What are the advantages of going private? None!

The reasons you shouldnít go to a family that you have found privately are many and we have listed some of them below.

The questions you should be asking:

Who is this family? You donít know you have never met them!

Are they a genuine family? You donít know because they are not going through an agency

Can I be 100% sure I am not being scammed? Nope!

The family has been in good contact with me, and I am confident they are ok. We hear this all the time, most are only being really nice because they want you to commit to them, the shock is after arrival!!!!

Why can't I be 100% sure I am not being scammed? Because there are thousands of internet scams, people without morals and unscrupulous families out their targeting girls looking for Au pair jobs privately. They cannot use a program or agency so they target private internet hire.

Have they been vetted and assessed by anybody.  Nope!!

How do I know that what they are offering is going to be there when I arrive? You donít!!

What if they donít like me or I find I donít like them after arrival, what can I do? Nothing, they can simply throw you out and you would have to spend money on accommodation and return travel

What if when I arrive they expect me to work more hours and what if they forget to pay me. What can I do? Nothing, you donít have anyone to support you and you would just have to accept it or leave.

How will I meet people? If it is a real family and you have a job when you arrive, well you should be the extravert type and good luck!

Can I be sure that nothing too bad will happen? Nope

They have looked into the benefits of an agency and offered you the same conditions. So you are prepared to take the chance and accept the promise of someone you donít even know to pay you weekly and give you the same benefits as an agency like holiday pay, a free flight etc. All we can say is good luck because if something goes wrong they are free to change their mind and you will not get anything.

What do I get at the end of my stay if it works out to be a good family? Nothing

What does it cost? Maybe a bad experience that you will never forget and that could affect you emotionally for the rest of your life.

The same questions below applies to a candidate that has decided to go through Totalnannies.

Who is this family? This family is a genuine professional family with a high standard of living vetted and recommended to Totalnannies usually by other professional families with excellent private accommodation.

Are they a genuine family? You can be 100% sure they are and they have signed a legal binding agreement with us regarding the conditions of your placement!

Can I be 100% sure I am not being scammed? Yes! All our host families are carefully screened.

The family have been in good contact with me and I am confident they are ok? We will only put you in contact with one of our families after you have accepted their offer and you can rest assured that they are real and not any kind of scam!

Why can I be 100% sure I am not being scammed? Because all our host families are carefully screened and many are returning clients. They sign a contract with our company and pay a fee for our services.

Have they been vetted and assessed by anybody?  Yes by our families department and our family coordinator is constantly in contact with them. They have to sign a contract agreeing to working hours and salary and all the details set out in our detailed job description that we send you before you apply to their offer.

How do I know that what they are offering is going to be there when I arrive? Because when you are through our company, you are sure of all the requirements before you arrive so that there are no surprises! The family are also sure of you also as they have been given a detailed file that we made up of you when you completed the application process..

What if they donít like me or I find I donít like them after arrival what can I do? This is unlikely when placed through us, but if this is the case then our family coordinator will step in and try to sort out the problem and if that is not possible we will replace you in another family. We offer you company support throughout your stay.

What if when I arrive they expect me to work more hours and what if they forget to pay me What can I do? This is very unlikely with our families but you can contact our support and we will immediately intervene.

How will I meet people? We send you a list of contact details of all our candidates placed, we have a large community to help you make friends with other girls doing the same experience.

Can I be sure that nothing too bad will happen? You can be sure that the family are real, the salary is real, the program is real and you should have a real good time and to date, after over 10 years that we have been running nothing bad has happened to any of our candidates!!
