Testimonials from Happy Families


Cynthia, I just wanted to take a second to thank you for what you do. The process of finding a nanny was grueling and painstaking. At times it seemed impossible. That is, until we decided to try your agency. We loved the candidates you brought to the table. We know that we gave you very little to work with given our current financial situation and that we were asking for a lot. And through all of those hurdles, you paired us with Nicole who far exceeds any expectations we had for not only a nanny, but a person in general. She is phenomenal and we are overjoyed to know that our kids are in great hands. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Royal Helpers. We sincerely appreciate it.”

Loren L. Parent

"I just wanted to let you know that through this process we interviewed several candidates through and then of course the candidates you sent over. To put a feather in your hat, the nannies you sent us were immeasurably better in quality, experience and reliability. My wife and I were very impressed with your service and while the fee is higher, we only want the best for our children. We are very excited about Elizabeth being our nanny. Thank you!"

Regards, Janine Van Der Merwe

Vetting Process

How To Avoid Domestic Helper Scams:

When you’re looking to hire a helper, nanny, or caregiver, you HAVE to do your due diligence — it’s non-negotiable.


Well, it’s kind of obvious, wouldn’t you say?…

… Whether they’re stay-in or stay-out, your helper will have unfiltered access to your home and all your belongings. That’s more than half of your life, and a lot of everything you’ve worked your butt off to achieve and acquire.

Allowing a stranger that level of access to your life should NEVER be taken lightly. Many domestic agencies in South Africa forego thorough background checks and vetting processes for their talent, which puts you at huge risk when you’re looking to hire some help.

Royal Helpers Agency has taken all this into consideration and, as a result, crafted a vetting process that never lets their clients down.

Verification Process

Background Check

Royal Helpers Agency runs tough reference checks, experience verification, previous employment confirmation & personal background checks on all Helpers before they are qualified and made available for placement.

These checks are done and repeated at different levels of the Helper’s joining process. Only those that pass the different screening levels make it through to placement, others are disqualified. When a Helper is hired from RHA, the Helper’s full profile is made available to the employer upon hiring.

Criminal Record Check

Criminal records can be legally verified in South Africa using a set of digitally captured fingerprints. Royal Helpers Agency uses MIE’s fingerprint systems to capture and submit fingerprints that are checked against the SAPS database to determine whether a candidate has a criminal record or not.

The verification process takes an average time of one day (24h). All Royal Helpers go through this process.

Qualification Verification

Where applicable Royal Helpers Center verifies qualifications such as Matric qualifications (post 1992), short-courses, certificates, diplomas, degrees, honours, masters, doctorates and PhDs directly against academic databanks that are held by authority boards including Umalusi, SETA and the National Qualification Register.

This verification is done on request for specific roles where it is important to run a qualification verification.

ID Verification

Royal Helpers identity verification includes checks like ID verification, ID validation, citizenship check, passport validation, visa verification, as well as similar checks relating to temporary or permanent residence permits, asylum seeker or refugee status. This is also done on request.
