A Typical Booking
Accepting jobs from families
We'll notify you when a booking is placed by a family in your area.
Check the details of the job and family, and accept within seconds.
Call the family two hours before the booking to confirm your attendance and final details.
Arrive at the booking, showing your SafeCircle ID and look forward to engaging with the children.
Payment is sent directly to your bank account after the booking.
We've introduced a number of features to help our sitters conduct jobs to the best of their ability.
At the end of the booking the parent's card is charged and payment is transferred directly to your bank account on a 7-day rolling basis.
We understand that sometimes sitters prefer not to work for a particular family. Our 'Blocked Families' feature ensures you won't receive bookings from families who you don't wish to return to.
During evening booking periods, we're always available to provide additional support. Whether you're looking for information about best practice or to report an issue, we're here for you.
Job details are kept confidential until accepted, but we'll still give you enough information to help you decide whether it's right for you. This includes details about children and pets, and an estimate of distance to the booking.
What you'll earn
At SafeCircle we believe in charging fairly for the skills you have. That's why we set some of the leading rates for our sitters.
Regular weekdays and weekends: £8 per hour
On regular weekdays and weekends you'll earn £8 per hour, with a minimum earning equivalent to a 3 hour booking, even if the booking duration is less.
Special dates: Regular Fee x Multiplier
During bank holidays, New Year's Eve and other popular dates throughout the year, we'll invoke our 'Special Dates' feature, which increases the amount you'll earn on these dates.
Providing a consistently high quality sitting experience
Ensuring consistency from one sitting experience to the next is what we pride ourselves on. We set out a number of guidelines to ensure every sitter can perform at their best and make the most of each booking.
