Als Babysitter bewerben

Dear babysitters and
future babysitters!

This blog entry is entirely dedicated to you and all questions you might have on how to become a babysitter.

 “I’ve had a browse around your website and decided I want to join your community. What’s next?”

Awesome, you have already taken the first step! You did some research on our website and probably found out about what to expect as a babysitter. Hopefully you have also thought about why YOU are the best babysitter in town and why you are ready to take the next step.

If so, simply fill out our application form (available at https://www.diebabysitterei.at/babysitting-job-graz/). Please note: Tell us everything about yourself that might help us find you a suitable job! Do you already have some experience in childcare? That’s great! Tell us all about it.

“I have filled out the form & sent it to you. What will happen next?”

Once we have received your application form containing as much information about you and your experience working with children as possible, we will contact you by telephone and invite you for a personal interview.

“Why is there a personal interview?”

For us, it is all about the personal connection and we truly care about who we work with. This is what differentiates us from other online platforms. We simply want to learn as much as possible from you personally – after all, we are curious too. And of course, we also really want to know who we might refer to our client families.

“You are delighted with me; I am delighted with you and your services. Well, then, what can I expect from you?”

After getting to know you in person, we will start looking for a suitable family for you. For now, you can just sit back and relax – we will do all the work for you. Sometimes this process might only take a few days, but at times it might also take a few weeks. However, rest assured; we will try to find a suitable family for you as quickly as possible!

“Is there anything I need to consider when using your referral service?”

AS A FIRST STEP, it is important for you to figure out at what times you would be available, how often you could/would like to babysit as well as if you preferred working on a regular basis or a more flexible schedule and so on.

This makes OUR job of finding the right match for you easier and later on it will also help YOU when working with “your” family.

Our referral service is based on 3 main principles:

  • Trust
  • Reliability
  • Accessibility

This applies to both our families and our babysitters.

Reliability is one of our top priorities: Just as you can rely on us to take care of finding a wonderful family for you, we want to make sure that you are reachable and available for the family at the agreed times. Obviously, things do not always go according to plan, but a certain degree of sincerity, professionalism and reliability is crucial to us – especially for the sake of the children. 

All the best, 

Victoria
