"Here's a job that I'm qualified to do and that I could enjoy. The hours suit me too! I had worked in a primary school and previously cared for my grandsons. Koru Kids introduced me to my family. We are getting along really well, and I'm even learning about horses!"

Find a Family

We'll match you with a great local family. You'll get to meet them first to make sure it's the right role for you

You might be wondering…

Where will I be working? – We'll look for local families who live less than 30 minutes from your home. We'll send you details of the families before we introduce you to make sure the logistics work for you.

How long does it take to start working? – Sorry, there is no simple answer to this. However, the quicker you attend bootcamp and tell us your references, the quicker we can start looking for families for you. We have hundreds of new families registering each week.

Is there an age limit? – Not at all! We're always on the lookout for older adults who love kids and are looking for part-time work. We find that older workers are very popular with families as they often make extremely reliable, dedicated and caring nannies.

How long is the job for? – You'll be matched with a family looking for a regular part-time nanny. So we ask our nannies to be able to commit to at least the end of the school year (term time only).

How many hours will I be working? – You'll need to be available for at least 3 afternoons a week during term time, and at least 3 hours on those days (from 3pm). Most of our nannies work part-time between 9-15 hours per week. You'll get £9.20 per hour (if you are aged 25 or above).

What will I be expected to do? – Usually, you'll pick up the kids from school, help them with their homework, prepare a simple meal and keep them entertained with games or arts and crafts until their parents get home.
