LocalCARE Introduction

LocalCARE is our range of recruiting and vetting services for families seeking long term (longer than 90 day service) fulltime, part time or on-demand FamilyCARE support services.

Sitters4u has offered full service professional placement and recruitment services since 2007. Having processed over 100 000 applications since 2007, we maintain a continually active base of candidates nationally.

Through our LocalCARE families can market their needs to our team, swiftly gauging applications from both our fully pre-vetted active candidate base, meeting and exceeding our requirements for our listed teams (view these here) as well as attracting external candidates  meeting specified criteria, sourced and referred through our network. Through LocalCARE clients can also request individual recruiting and screening services, such as background checks or full screening, even those sourced independently, build service packages in accordance with your needs and budgeting; or order a personalised contract of employment which includes specialized disciplinary sections specifically tailored to home based placements.

While Sitters4U has always offered full service placement and strictly pre-screened candidates, in order to provide services to those that find professional placement fees too exorbitant, we have compartmentalised our service so that local clients can now build their own service package in accordance with their needs.

You can then make the decision to either contact and vett them yourself, or to request an identity background check and complete the rest of the vetting yourself, or to request full vetting by Sitters4U.

Listed (Pre-Screened | Pre-Vetted) Candidates

Listed (Pre-Vetted) candidates are those that have been document checked, interviewed, and reference checked, by Sitters4U, to meet your criteria prior to your contacting us.
