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? –

You'll need to be available for at least 3 afternoons a week. We'll look for families who live less than 30 minutes from your home or uni (whichever you choose). We'll send you details of the family 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 the quicker we can start looking for families for you. We have hundreds of new families registering each week.

Do I need to be a student? –

Most of our nannies are students but we're still interested in speaking to non-students. You'll need to be able to commit to working 3 afternoons a week.

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).

What if I don't have my timetable yet? –

Don't worry, we'll let the families know this is the case before we introduce you. This is the case for many students.

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.
