I agree with what's the others have said, if you don't ask you will never know. Ask for 12 an hour, they can always knock you down a bit, at least it will be more than your on now.. good luck 😀

Definitely, ask to have a chat and explain.  Just start off by saying how much you adore the children and the job and would they consider a pay rise as you have been there for some time and it would be so appreciated.  It does not sound unreasonable at all especially as you have been there for a year.

My view is if you don't ask you don't get. They may offer you less or get what you asked for.

Hello all,
I have been in my job for a year and as per my contract I plan to ask for a pay review in the coming weeks.
I saw the job on gum tree and at interview was asked how much I needed as a wage. I loved the family and without really thinking said 10nph which, as it turned out, was less than their current nanny and less than my previous wage. Yes I was a fool! Annoyingly after I accepted I was also sent the job by an agency who also advertised it as 12nph! Sigh!
Aaaaanyway I have been really struggling on my current wage and would like to ask for the 12nph but I feel super uncomfortable asking them for money. I absolutely love the family and I know they are happy with me. Do you think it's a reasonable request? The percentage increase is high but do you think it's worth a try if they were willing to offer that wage in the first place

some of the big London agencies have 'dedicated' TEMP desks - so they are probably one of the best bets.

Have a look at the agencies listed on the nanny job main site and the roles agencies have available
