So with me going back to work soon, my mum is having our kids two of the days I work each week (childcare tge others).
Anyway, because they'll be a permanent arrangement there & she's made such a huge commitment to us, I feel like it's unreasonable to then also ask her to babysit when DH & I have date night once a month on a Saturday night.
So I'm thinking of finding a stable regular babysitter for the kids who I can call on (we don't have anyone else other than my mum who can babysit).
But how do I go about finding a reputable babysitter? How did you find yours?

How do I go about finding a regular babysitter?

I've found fantastic ones through findababysitter website. You pay a fee to join, post an ad and sit back and wait for the replies. So long as you know what you're looking for I've found it very easy to find good reliable nannies.

You could ask the childcare centre that your kids will be going to. Some staff at centres offer babysitting after hours for some extra money.

A girl who worked at our childcare babysat for us for a while
otherwise - a few people advertised babysitting services at our local shop ... I have never used them, but its worth having a look.

Oops yes I read your OP around the wrong way.
I also recommend asking if you know anyone who uses childcare (but if you don't use a centre could be tricky). We have a regular babysitter we found through findababysitter as well.

I hear advertising on local fb pages is really popular
In all seriousness, can you ask around? Someone might know of a good sitter already
