SureSitter smart-match - does the finding for you

SureSitter smart-match - does the finding for you

Our smart-match technology automatically connects parents and sitters based on what you both need.

Here’s how it works:

If you’re a parent: immediately after you’ve posted a job, smart-match automatically matches your requirements to the location and preferred jobs of trusted childcare professionals. It then shows you their profiles in order of best-fit.

If you’re a sitter: smart-match goes and finds you work, matching your location and preferred jobs to live jobs and showing you them. All you have to do is apply.

Finding local childcare should be easy, for both parents and carers. That’s why smart-match sits at the core of the SureSitter service.

We want to deliver a home-grown personal touch to childcare, giving you access to trusted providers all over Ireland, so that you can feel confident booking qualified, local carers in a flash.

What some of our happy Parents & Sitters are saying

“I love SureSitter. We recently moved to Ireland from abroad and we have no family here. We put up a job looking for an occasional babysitter and we found a fantastic babysitter who lives a few streets away from us.”
- Anna, Dublin
“A friend had recommended the site to me and I was a little sceptical at first. However I decided to give it a go and happily surprised to find a great of suitable childminders in my area. Within a few days we found a great childminder. Thanks SureSitter.”
- Claire, Dublin
“Within a few hours of posting my job I had responses from 5 excellent babysitters. Would definitely use again.”
