What are you going to do:

We’re looking for students who wish to make a positive impact by looking after kids in the afternoons during school term.

We’d love to hear from people who may have some experience as a nanny, au pair, tutor or babysitter.

  • Afternoon hours to fit your morning commitments
  • In your local area
  • Free DBS check (if required)
  • Free online after school nanny training (~2 hours)

*You’ll start on between £9 and £12 per hour (including holiday pay) depending on your previous childcare experience**. You’ll also earn more the longer you work as a Koru Kids nanny. You’ll get an extra 50p per hour after 6 months, and another 50p increase after 12 months.

What are we looking for?

  • We accept applicants from all backgrounds and different levels of experience** to apply to become an after school nanny.
  • This job is perfect if you are looking for a part-time job (9-15 hours per week) to fit around other commitments.
  • You should be able to commit to helping the family primarily during school term-time, with potential to also work during school holidays.
  • Being great with kids is a must!

**Your experience:

  • Basic experience - starting at £9 per hour - You have some experience as a babysitter or working in an after school club or similar.
  • Parenting experience - starting at £10 per hour - You have grown up children so you know all the ins and outs of childcare.
  • Professional experience - starting at £10-12 per hour - You’ve worked as a teacher, teaching assistant, nursery worker, nanny, childminder, lunchtime or passenger assistant, or similar childcare roles. Your rate is based on the length of your experience and roles you’ve had: £10 for 1+ years of experience; £11 for 2+ years of experience (excluding lunchtime or passenger assistant); £12 for 3+ years of experience as a nanny
