Choosing your Gran

At Grans For Hire we take our responsibilities as a Referral Agency very seriously with a very strict selection process. All our Candidates are mature ladies who are interviewed, background and reference checked. Whether it be a permanent or casual position we need as much information from you as possible. The more information you can supply us with, the more confident and certain we are with our Candidate selection. We want to understand your family and your needs and ensure that your new Gran will help make your life easier.

Please note that our Grans are not substitute cleaners, au pairs or slaves. They do not do domestic house chores, bath your children or prepare children’s meals.
