Tips for interview with families
For a family hiring a maternity nurse or hiring a nanny it's a very important decision and families take it seriously. First and foremost they're looking for somebody who's qualified, experienced, professional, trustworthy, polite, and dependable.
If you are invited to an interview arrive early or on time and dress professionally
Below is a list of important tips that you need to keep in mind when interviewing, so you can be sure to make the best impression possible:
- Prepare your answers to standard questions - such as why you want the job, why you work with children, and what your strengths and weaknesses are.
- Be prompt and on time, or arrive a few minutes early!
- Dress professionally. Jeans are acceptable with a nice blouse or shirt. Don't wear anything too suggestive and make sure your clothes are child friendly, e.g. flat shoes,. Being neat, clean, and presentable is essential.
- If the family's children are participating at the interview, interact with them to show that you truly care.
- Smile and make eye contact with the family and the children, shake hands, and thank the parents for the opportunity to interview with them.
- If you don't understand a question, ask for clarification! don't try to answer a question you don't understand.
- Be prepared to ask a few questions of the interviewer which show that you are interested and want to make sure the job will be a good fit for both of you.
- Be prepared to provide references.
- Ask the employer when they plan on making a decision and/or when you might expect to hear from them.
Written statement of employment particulars
Employees are entitled to receive a statement of their employment particulars within two months of starting work. This sets out your main employment terms, including the job description, pay, hours of work and any disciplinary or grievance procedures your employer has.
What a written statement of employment particulars is
If you're an employee who has been employed for longer than one month , you should receive a written statement of employment particulars. Your employer has a duty to give you this within two months of you starting work. It still applies even if you will only be working for a family for two months.
The statement sets out in writing some of your main employment terms, known as the 'principal statement'. It will not necessarily cover all of your employment terms and may cover only the ones your employer has a duty to include as listed below.
Your employer must provide you with some of your employment details in one single document. This is known as the 'principal statement' and must include:
- your name and your employer's name
- your job title or a brief job description
- the date when your employment began
- your pay rate and when you will be paid
- your hours of work
- your holiday entitlement
- where you will be working (if you are based in more than one place it should say this along with your employer's address)
- sick pay arrangements
- notice periods
- information about disciplinary and grievance procedures
- any collective agreements that affect your employment terms or conditions
- pensions and pension schemes
- if you are not a permanent employee how long your employment is expected to continue, or if you are a fixed term worker the date your employment will end
If your employer does not offer one of the terms that must be set out in the written statement (such as a pension scheme), they must say that it is not offered in your written statement. Your employer cannot just leave it out.
The written statement must be clear and correct.
