What is an International Representative
Canada Nanny Network partners with International Representatives in over 50 countries around the world to bring the most qualified and well-trained Nannies to Canada. In order to increase the number of available Nannies through Canada Nanny Network, we have partnered with numerous International Representatives around the world.
International Representatives represent Canada Nanny Network in their local country. Each representative takes care of the marketing for and recruitment of new Nanny candidates. After recruiting new candidates, our International Representatives help the candidate through an extensive screening process to ensure only the most qualified candidate participate in the program.
After the screening and application process, International Representatives facilitate Canada Nanny Network ’s new and comprehensive 40 hour Canada Nanny Network training. Through this training the applicant will increase their knowledge and experience, while improving their understanding of child care in Canada.
International Representatives play a vital role in the placement of their candidates . In addition to helping the candidate through the screening and application process, they also help the candidate prepare for phone interviews with Host Families as well as assisting them in all the preparation for embassy interviews.
