For Nannies  


Interviewing Preparation

The first interview may take the form of a telephone interview, where the family will want to get a general feel for you as a nanny and assess your suitability. We then recommend that you meet up. We are happy to email photographs, and can arrange a video conference too. For UK based positions we do recommend more than one interview, the second being more in-depth and with the children so the family can see how well you interact.

Suggestions for questions that you may be asked during the interview


If you are qualified you may be asked if you enjoyed the course and if you have found it helpful, since you started work.


Are you confident with what to do in an emergency situation. What would you do if baby was choking?


Why do you enjoy being a nanny?


Explain a little about the routine you would set for a small baby and how you would develop it.


How do you keep abreast of what is going on in the area that would be suitable for you and the baby to do?


Tell me a few of the activities you would do with a baby, toddler or older.


Do you have many nanny friends?


Are you from a large family?


Can you cook - what would you cook for x, y, aged children?


Describe how you would plan a day with x & y aged children
