How to become a Last Minute Minder

It’s so simple, you just have to email us your CV and we will set up an interview for you, this may be by Skype or in person depending on location. If you are successful we will ask you to provide us with the following documents before we can include you in our community:

  • Qualification in childcare (minimum Fetac Level 5 or equivalent)
  • Two childcare related references
  • Photo ID
  • Police clearance from country of origin if you moved to Ireland after the age of 17

We have five simple rules*:

  1. You can still choose the placements that you want to accept, just let us know if you are not available.
  2. If you accept a job and for some reason beyond your control you can't make it you must let the Crèche and Us know as soon as possible (before the start time)!
  3. You must always arrive on time and be professionally presented - we can give you some pointers if you need!
  4. You must supply all bank details in order for you to receive your wages and that signed time sheets must be received by 8am Monday morning in order to get paid.
  5. You must adhere to the Last Minute Minders Terms of Service for Minders.

*We know that sometimes things happen and you may accidentally break one of these rules but don't worry we will always give you the benefit of the doubt the first time and even the second time but on the third time we may remove you from our database. None of us wants that to happen so please do your very best to follow the 5 simple rules.
