What is the process to get a position with SS@MA?

Our clients are looking for candidates that have a history of success. They are seeking employees who will bring knowledge and proven skills to the job and come with verifiable experience.

The process:

  1. To begin a search for the perfect job, contact our office to discuss your needs or if you prefer, fill out our interest form and we will contact you within 2days. Once we have confirmed that you meet our requirements, we will schedule you for an in-depth personal interview.
  2. When you come for your interview, please bring several items:
    Valid driver’s license
    • Social Security card
    • Proof of citizenship
    • Names, addresses and phone numbers of three references involving your experience with children within the last 3 years. We accept references from various sources which demonstrate your experience with children: previous nanny positions, day care centers, volunteer assignments, and teaching positions. We require that you have a minimum of 2 years experience in working with children.
  3. After we have checked your references, you will be asked to complete a free, 3-hour Health & Safety Orientation session and receive an overview of our agency’s guidelines. You will also be required to take a CPR course and have a TB test. We also require that you have legal resident status in the United States.
  4. You will be required to agree to a pre-employment criminal background check once you are offered employment.
  5. While you are waiting for a long-term position, you may consider working in our Temporary/Short-Term positions.

How long will it take to find the right position?

Search time varies based on the candidate's background and the type of position required. A candidate’s search may be as short as a week or as long as several months depending on specific needs. Live-in searches typically take longer than live-out searches because of the unique structure of the live-in market and the additional criteria for desired living quarters. Your placement counselor may be able to give you a better idea of how long your particular search may take.

How do clients/families learn of SS@MA services?

We are pleased to say we have worked with some families for many years, and many who continue using our other services long after their children have grown. Household requirements change over the years and families depend on us to evolve with their needs. Often, friends who have hired someone through SS@MA refer new clients to us. When a family decides to register with us, they too complete an application that helps us understand their household needs.
