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

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

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.

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 😀
