Settling In

When employing someone, you should expect it to take a certain amount of time for them to settle in their new role, and for both of you to find your feet. When starting a position in a home, the candidate may feel nervous and worried about doing well and meeting your expectations. Be patient with them and let them find their way in their new role.

We arrange meetings one week into candidates starting their roles to make sure both parties are happy.

When offering a position to a candidate, proper etiquette would be to offer the job in writing, making sure to list all relevant information within the job offer. Contracts should be written up and sent before the candidate starts their role, to give them enough time to read through and be able to discuss any possible amendments. 

You will also be expected to arrange for all income tax and National Insurance to be paid for the employee. We can't provide contracts, but we are happy to give you guidance.
