Link Placement Agency helps families find the right Nanny, Live-in Nanny, Babysitter, Backup Babysitter, Infant Care Nanny, Disabilities/Special Needs Caregiver, Senior Caregiver, House Cleaner, Housekeeper, Household Manager, Personal Assistant, and Tutor.
We interview the candidates over the phone, we interview them in person or video call, and we call 5 references (3 professional and 2 personal). We narrow it down to one or two candidates for you to meet with. We suggest that you interview the candidate and do a trial before official hire. After you decide what candidate you would like to hire, we run an in depth background check (Criminal & MVR).
All of our candidates are CPR/First Aid Certified in regards to care giving, have 5+ years of experience in their field, are eligible to work in the U.S. and are a minimum of 18 years old.
If you are interested in using a contract, under our Resources tab you can download a copy of a candidate contract. You can also find an interview template with suggested questions to help guide you through the interview process.
If the employment of a candidate that we referred to you lasts less than 10 months, we will be happy to replace the candidate for the same position at no additional charge, up to 2 replacements in a 12 month period.

We charge a one-time, non-refundable, Registration Fee of $250.00 to start the search. Once you have hired the candidate, we charge a non-refundable Placement Fee. The placement fee varies and depends on the job requirements and the amount of hours offered. The placement fee can be paid in full or in six monthly payments, with the first payment at the time of hire.
