We listen to your needs and aim to match your requirements to our client’s requirements. We appreciate that finding a new job is a stressful process and we are here to help you through the procedure and hopefully to ensure a satisfactory conclusion.
We do, however, have a strict registration policy and we will only present our clients with the best selection of private home professionals available, so it is important that you read the following carefully before sending us your information.
Should you decide to register with us, we would require a minimum of three (3) years experience in private service, or in special cases, a solid background in hospitality or a service related field. We would be reluctant to accept an applicant with a “busy” resume. A person who changes jobs frequently implies to us a lack of commitment and loyalty to their employers. There are however, some exceptions and The Hazel Agency is willing to assess whether certain applicants may be suitable for a role in private service. Please note below the additional requirements necessary to be considered for positions:
- Must be 21 Years or Older
- Valid Driver’s License
- Social Security Number
- Clear Knowledge & Understanding of the English Language
- Proof of U.S. Citizenship or Valid Work Permit
- CPR & First Aid Certification (Childcare Positions)
- Reliable Transportation
- Commit to a Minimum of One (1) Year
- Favorable Online & Social Media Presence
Submitting Your Resume
The first impression we will have of you is based on your resume, so it is important to make sure that you provide us with an accurate and very detailed work history, outlining your current and past duties and responsibilities. If you feel you meet our requirements, please submit your resume and complete our Candidate Application for consideration. You will be contacted by one of our Placement Consultants to discuss your requirements and to arrange an interview.
References are vital, therefore we will not consider anyone for registration without them. Not only because they reflect on your capabilities and suitability as a candidate, but also for security reasons. Please bring all written letters of recommendation and contact information of former employers to your interview.
Interviews are by appointment only and usually take place within seven to fourteen days of submitting your application. Our interviews can take up to two hours and we expect our potential candidates to be prepared to meet our expectations by not being late and bringing the required documents.
It is our responsibility to promote you to our clients as a professional. We would therefore expect you to represent our high standards. Once the time and place for the interview has been confirmed, you will be forwarded full details on the location and the client’s phone number. We do not expect our candidates to be late to the interview, but if you do have any problems in finding an address or cannot arrive at the appointed time, please contact the family immediately and let them know.
The interview is also about establishing your needs and requirements, so be prepared to ask questions and to get a better picture of what the position involves. In some cases, you will be expected to do a second interview. This may be to either finalize the agreement and/or cover any issues that might not have been raised during your first interview.
Accepting a Position
Once an offer has been made, The Hazel Agency will draft up an Employee/Employer Agreement outlining the basic terms and conditions of your employment for both parties to sign. You will be given a copy for your files and the agency will keep one on record.
Your New Position
Our service to our candidates does not end once a placement has been made. If there are any problems that need to be discussed or if you require any information or advice, please feel free to contact us anytime.
