SwiftCARE Introduction

SwiftCARE mainly aimed at catering to international clients, holidaying families, or those requiring short term placements of FamilyCARE services providers who would prefer end to end professional recommendation based recruitment services, being presented with only fully vetted staff options and requiring 24 hours up to a maximum period  of 6 months service. Affording families swift turnaround for short term needs, we take families through every step of the sourcing and selection process.

Through SwiftCARE, clients receive recommendations of strictly pre-screened professional staff options, meeting and exceeding our our requirements  (view these here). From our already established database, Sitters4U will provide only the top pre-screened applying candidates best meeting your families needs, making the selection process swift and as simple as possible.

We set the bar for what is today considered professional family support in South Africa. Beyond simply relevant experience, contactable professional references, relevant post matric level educational qualifications, we were also the first in South Africa to insist that candidates have first aid, and vehicles for our listed childcare candidates.
