It's up to you if you think it is reasonable. Will it cover your living and travelling to work expenses? Will you be happy with the amount?
Get a pay review put into your contract after 6 months if you accept that amount.
Are there other perks that balance the pay out? Extra holidays, gym, health benefits etc.

Hey guys,

So I have made it to second stage of interview (meeting the Children and father)

So, the role is 8-6:30 M-F and they are paying 1900 gross per month.

To me this works out 10 gross hourly rate, where as before I have always been on 10 net.

Is this still reasonable?

Advice please! So I can discuss tomorrow with the family if needed!

Thanks for your replies.

I have recently started a job in Hereford. In the process of selling my house and buying here.
I havent been able to find a nanny community here, I dont think there is one!
I am nervous about what will happen in 3years when this job ends, but cant prepare for everything I suppose.

I went to career advisor and their help was next to nothing. I want a complete change from nannying. I went recently to view a loft in a house to rent and the owner is a GP who is in her fifties and started her medical school at 41. Prior to that she was a professional violin player for over 20 years. That is what I call opportunities and courage.

Quick answer to the questions I can.

Most nannies are employed and require parents to pay night and the tax for them. There are the rare occasion normally when nannies work for many families on an advice bases that they are self employed.  Ie babysitting or temporary nannies. Parents should provide a payslip every month to show that it's being paid and I would also agree a gross amount. 

Ofsted benefits the parents more than the nanny. It doesn't effect the pay overall but it can be paid via two separate transfers. It requires upto date first aid certificate a short course etc. Others will be able to tell you more.

I would recommend looking at nanny insurance and keeping your DBS on the update system. 

It's advisable to get written authority for things like medicine and taking the child to the doctors.  Some families have a diary book which covers when the medicine was taken, how much, any accidents. 

Most families have a petty cash system where you produce receipts for money spent. Ie covering the costs of travel, activities etc.

Driving it is advisable to drive there car or have business insurance on yours. Plus a fair milage rate for the car.

Holidays are 28days including bank holidays normally split two weeks each persons choice.  I would also add a clause about if they take more holiday than agreed you are entitled to full pay. They ask you to go in and do child related activities like batch cooking etc.

Hi Everyone,

I have recently decided to go into Nannying. Iv always wanted to do it but never been in a position to but now I am driving etc I really want to take this step.  I have worked in nurseries for 12 years and reached the point where I just felt it wasn't me anymore and I missed actually spending time with the children.

I'm hoping to start this new post to ask all my questions and hope someone can answer them, so here goes!.......
 Huh Huh Huh
* What's the differences, and pros and cons to being ofsted registered or not?
* If I am ofsted registered and the parents use childcare vouchers, how does that effect me or my wages?
* I read that being a nanny is not allowed to be classed as self employed and the family/employers have to pay my tax and NA, how does this happen and how do I know (to cover myself) that it is being paid?
* What kind of paperwork do I need to have, being used to nurseries, I'm used to policies and procedures, medicine/accident/incident forms, learning journeys, planning, trackers, consent for calpol/sudocrem/suncream and probably more things that I cant think of right now!  How much of this do I need to have being a nanny?
* I have always loved Tapestry and wondered if it was worth looking into getting?

I cant think of anymore questions at the moment but if anyone can help me with any of these or any additional information to help me get started I would be so grateful.  Smiley
Thanks in advance

I'm at cross roads as well.

Trained as an early childhood teacher.
Nannied for seven years.
Maternity nursed for 10 years.
Just started a nanny position while I figure out what I should do next.
It's not easy trying to decide.  I also wonder if it's worth a visit to a career advisor.
