Ready for your big OE?   Welcome to Nannies Abroad

Can I apply to be a nanny in England?

If you have a nanny or teaching qualification you will receive more money in relation to the length and caliber of your course. 

The more solid experience and references you have, the higher your pay will be.

Salaries for Nannies, Mothers Helps and Au Pairs are between £120 to £400+ per week for a live in job, depending on hours and duties. It also depends on your experience level and your qualifications, if any. 

For those without much full time nanny experience or a qualification, babysitting experience counts, as there are loads of Mothers Help Positions where the mother is at home a lot of the time. 

You should still have a love for children and a genuine interest in caring for them. Aim to have around 200 hours experience. 

It's not mandatory to hold a full drivers licence (unlike the USA). However it is preferred, especially if you can drive a manual.

  • You should also be flexible about your dates, and preferably wait till we find you a placement before booking your flights. We can find families for you - getting the job is up to you - how you come across on the phone and how detailed your application and references are.
  • We charge a NZ$200 Program fee - this is non refundable and covers our time in getting you interviewed and screened for the UK nanny screening Laws including a NZ police check.
  • If you book your flights through our IWH Travel Dept then your package also includes a SIM card, Orientation, Bank account and assistance in getting your NHS number on arrival to the UK.
  • However if we don't think we could arrange any UK job interviews for you then we will not accept your application and send everything (including your Program Fee) back to you before your NZ interview.

Hi Vicki Was just thinking about emailing you the other day :) I am very settled in now, I feel very much at home. The family are amazing, especially the parents, they have welcomed me and made sure that I have been happy! I am getting along with the children a lot better than at the start. The parents have told me often that the kids really like me, so that is a positive sign :). I couldn't have asked for a better family! ~ Amy Deed
