How do I create a custom search to find a job?

You can create and save a custom search from the "Find Jobs" tab.


  1. Click the Find Jobs tab (candidates)
  2. Complete the "Refine your search filters" on the left side of the screen. This is where you choose filters like the months you are available, what sort of wage you would like to receive, the nationality of the family, whether or not housekeeping is required, how many years of experience the family is requesting, as well as a local search by city.


    To select more than one item in a list, hold down the CTRL key on your keyboard (Command key for Mac users) to save multiple selections.

    Don’t forget about the keyword search. You can search on your interests or needs; find vegetarian families, sports activities, horses, musical instruments, house manager or caring for children with special medical needs.

  3. When you have added all the filters you want for your search, scroll to the top of the page and click the "Save Search" link.
  4. This link will open a grey rectangular box on the right side of the screen.
  5. Name your search inside the yellow box and click the "Save" button.
  6. Now you can find your saved search in the "My saved searches" drop down menu
  7. You can return to these saved searches at any time by clicking the Find Jobs tab and then clicking the "Save Search" link to open the field on the right where your " Saved Searches" are stored.

Once you have saved your search, you can start reviewing profiles and adding those you are interested in, to your Favorites list. Just click the green plus sign above the profile photo to send a message to families to let them know you are interested in their job.
