The job placement

Our pla­ce­ment fee is a suc­cess-rela­ted fee, which is based on the annu­al gross inco­me of the per­son pla­ced. It is only paya­ble when you con­clu­de an employ­ment con­tract with the can­di­da­te we pro­po­se. The­re are no fur­ther pro­ces­sing fees bey­ond this.

How does a placement work?

Preliminary interview

Per­so­nal con­ta­ct is very important to us. Only in this way can we gain a pre­cise impres­si­on of your fami­ly situa­ti­on and the indi­vi­du­al requi­re­ments of the app­li­cant. After pla­cing the order, we will dis­cuss your spe­cial needs in a detail­ed tele­pho­ne con­ver­sa­ti­on and tog­e­ther we will draw up a detail­ed fami­ly pro­fi­le which will ser­ve as a basis for our search. This pro­fi­le will later be sent to the poten­ti­al can­di­da­tes anony­mous­ly as initi­al infor­ma­ti­on about the position.

Candidate search

Accord­ing to the indi­vi­du­al fami­ly pro­fi­le, we look for an app­li­cant who is spe­cial­ly sui­ted to your needs. We publish the job adver­ti­se­ment on our web­site and look for sui­ta­ble can­di­da­tes in our app­li­cant pool. Usual­ly you will recei­ve the first app­li­cant port­fo­li­os wit­hin a few days. If you are inte­res­ted, we will then arran­ge a first inter­view bet­ween you and the app­li­cant. The first con­ta­ct often takes place by pho­ne or Sky­pe. In a per­so­nal inter­view you can cla­ri­fy details of the posi­ti­on to be fil­led and you can quick­ly see whe­ther you like the app­li­cant. The next step is then a test work and get­ting to know each other in detail. It is important for both par­ties to expe­ri­ence ever­y­day life tog­e­ther. Is the che­mi­stry right? Does the nan­ny have a good rela­ti­ons­hip with the child­ren? Do the basic atti­tu­des towards edu­ca­ti­on agree?

The employ­ment con­tract is con­clu­ded direct­ly bet­ween the app­li­cant and the fami­ly. N4YK will glad­ly pro­vi­de you with a draft contract.
As long as the poli­ce clearan­ce cer­ti­fi­ca­te and medi­cal cer­ti­fi­ca­te are not avail­ab­le, you should con­clu­de the employ­ment con­tract under reser­ve. After the con­clu­si­on of the employ­ment con­tract (ver­bal­ly or in wri­ting) the pla­ce­ment fee is due.

Placement fee

The agen­cy fee is cal­cu­la­ted from the annu­al gross inco­me mul­ti­plied by the fee rate plus the legal value added tax (if app­li­ca­ble). The fee rate is 18 % (in Ger­ma­ny and Ger­man-spea­king coun­tries). In the case of a spe­cial qua­li­fi­ca­ti­on of the app­li­cant desi­red by the cli­ent (e.g. for­eign lan­guages — nati­ve spea­ker — , Montesso­ri, cura­ti­ve education/ergotherapy trai­ning) the fee rate is 20 %.
In the case of con­tract peri­ods of less than one year (e.g. mater­ni­ty nur­se, holi­day nan­ny) the fee rate is also 18 % of the order volu­me (in Ger­ma­ny and abroad).
(4) The pla­ce­ment fee for pla­ce­ments in non-Ger­man-spea­king coun­tries is 2.5 mon­th­ly net salaries.

Substitute placement

Upon taking up the posi­ti­on, you are enti­t­led to a sub­sti­tu­te pla­ce­ment for three mon­ths. During the ent­i­re pro­ba­tio­na­ry peri­od, we are hap­py to assist our cli­ents with advice and sup­port. It is important to allow the nan­ny an appro­pria­te trai­ning peri­od. She has to get used to the ever­y­day life of the fami­ly, get to know habits and rituals.

Usual­ly after 4 weeks one has a good fee­ling whe­ther it will work out with the nan­ny in the long run. Always come to us with any ques­ti­ons or dif­fi­cul­ties. Open com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on is the best way to avoid con­flicts. A sub­sti­tu­te pla­ce­ment will not take place if the gene­ral con­di­ti­ons have chan­ged in the mean­ti­me accord­ing to the fami­ly profile.
