FEES FOR TEMPORARY PLACEMENTS
All Temporary bookings carry a minimum non-refundable charge of £260, payable in advance of the applicant starting work with the family; this covers any period of time up to 2 weeks.
After the initial 2 weeks, the charges are £60 per week or part week thereafter.
For long term bookings, special rates can be negotiated.
Should a Temporary or Short-Term Applicant subsequently stay on with the Family beyond their agreed time period, the appropriate Permanent Fee would immediately become payable, minus the Temporary Charges already paid, and all other normal payment Terms would apply.
The starting date of the Guarantee period offered for a Permanent placement would then be backdated to the Date that the Applicant began their Temporary booking / short term placement.
This does not apply in the cases of any Applicant who is being offered as a replacement Applicant for a Permanent position.
An administration charge of £50 would be charged if the Temporary position had been submitted to the Agency, work had commenced, and then the position was withdrawn.
1) The Fee calculation is the same for both Full Time and Part Time Staff, within both the permanent and temporary categories.
2) Calculation of After School Nanny Fees.
* Fees for After School Positions are calculated at the rate of 5 x an average taken of the Nanny’s hours worked during both Term and Holiday times.
• In State Schools, Education Regulations (1999) stipulated that Schools must educate the children for 190 days of the year, giving School terms a total of 38 weeks, and holidays of 14 weeks pa.
We therefore use these figures where any Nanny looks after children attending State Schools.
• Where Nanny looks after Children currently in Private education, as holidays are up to the individual School to decide, we have taken an average from 4 Private schools.
This equates to 33 weeks’ Term time, and 19 weeks’ holiday.
3) In some circumstances the Client may be liable for an administration charge. (See Terms 5.5 for details.)
REFUND STRUCTURE (Applicable to Permanent placements only.)
If an Applicant should leave within their Guarantee period, the Client will be entitled to a free replacement.The refund will only be applicable if the Agency is given 20 working days in which to submit details of suitable alternative candidates, but fails to do so.
If in the Agency’s opinion, a suitable replacement has been offered, and not accepted, no refund will be payable.
No refunds are due should the replacement Applicant leave the Client.
SLIDING SCALE OF REFUNDS:
WEEKS 1-2 refund of 75% of Invoice
WEEKS 3-6 refund of 50% of Invoice.
WEEKS 7-8 refund of 25% of Invoice.
Exclusions to a Client’s rights to a refund include, but are not limited to:
• Where the Client did not pay the Placement invoice by the due date.
• If the Client’s placement requirements changed either after the Applicant started, or for the replacement Applicant.
• If the Client is in breach of contract by not adhering to the Agency Terms and Conditions of Business.
• On any Flat Fee placement, unless special Terms have been negotiated in writing by Norma Lewis.
