Finding a Carer

Once joined, you will be required to complete your account details and outline the type of services you are seeking. You can post a job or view listed carers. Once a job is posted, you can view the responses you have received from the job listing. It is your responsibility to review the responses, make contact with the carers, arrange and conduct interviews with them to determine their suitability in order to select a preferred carer. It is important to ensure you maintain contact with the carer through the website only. This ensures there is a process for the exchange of information and details. All carers registered with Our Child Care are required to have work with children and police checks. Our Child Care provides you with a copy of the relevant checks.

 

Carer Insurance

Child carers providing services to parents through Our Child Care are covered by Our Child Care’s professional indemnity and public liability insurance policy, subject to terms and conditions. It is important that all work is undertaken through Our Child Care. If work is undertaken outside of Our Child Care, the carer is not covered by Our Child Care’s blanket insurance.

 

Rates of Pay

As the parent, you are responsible for negotiating the rate of pay with the child carer and also providing payment for the carer. All Payments are made to Our Child Care. Once you have confirmed the date and time of work and the rate of pay, you simply make payment for the work prior to the work being undertaken via the Our Child Care Payment page. Once the work has taken place, we then pay the carer, less our commission of 14 percent. We recommend that rates be negotiated which are fair and reasonable and take into account the work load associated with the role.
