Different areas of London have different average rates depending on the demand and the number of professional nannies in that area.
The more experienced you are the more you can charge. However, this does level off and you will need to set a rate that’s competitive to be considered for roles.
If you speak additional languages then families will often be willing to pay more for this.
You might have experience with twins, special educational needs or children who need medical support. This experiece allows you to charge a premium.
Based on Professional Live-out roles in 2022/23
If you’re only a few years into nannying you should set your rate under the average unless you speak another language or have specific experience the family are looking for. If you’re very experienced you can charge more.
We don’t recommend setting your rate above £22 per hour gross. There are families that will pay more but typically this will be via more specialist agencies for rota nannies or High Net Worth individuals which will be more demanding in terms of duties and travel.
