Hello there,

We are currently changing and re-planning the way GrandNanny operates. You may still register your interest but your registration will not be processed until a later date.

Our updated operation will launch later in Spring/Summer.

The GrandNanny team

How we work

For GrandNannies

The first thing you need to do is register.

01. Interview

Once you’ve registered, we’ll arrange a short telephone interview with one of the GrandNanny team.

They’ll chat through your childcare experience and why you love working with children. If they think you’ll make a great GrandNanny for our registered families they will create a personal profile for you.

You need to approve this profile by email before any matching can start.

02. Matching

As soon as your registration is complete, you will receive a link with all of the available family roles. This is updated daily. If you see a role you want to go for, you can simply email us and tell us.

At the same time, our team will be working behind the scenes to match your profile with families in your area.  Once we find a match we’ll email you the details of  the role. If you are happy to be put forward, we’ll share your profile with the family. If there’s a match we’ll set up and interview with the family so that you can both meet.

We’ll always send a full briefing before you meet a family so you know what to expect and what they liked about your profile. We can also help you prepare for the interview.

After you’ve met the family and you and the parents are happy with the match, we suggest a supervised meeting between you and the whole family before you go ahead.

03. Onboarding

Because we want you to have job security and a constant minimum income, we ensure your Employer (family) is committed to offering a constant minimum number of hours.
Once you have received and accepted an offer, you’ll get your free Enhanced DBS checks, child safeguarding and first aid training.

You will become an Employee and the family you’ve matched with will become your Employer. This is important because every family is different and you will want to agree house rules and your own processes for things requesting holiday directly with them.

We will collect holiday hours over email every month. It is important we have accurate information so that we can make sure you are paid fairly.

We will provide offer letters and contracts for you and your family. We can help guide you and share resources, but it is important that you are familiar, confident and comfortable with the legal details of working as a Nanny.

04. Getting Paid

The last thing you want is the hassle of dealing with lots of paperwork or having to chase your wages. GrandNanny will run payroll on behalf of your family.

Your family will receive a monthly invoice from GrandNanny Ltd which they pay by direct debit. We will base this on the number of hours you have agreed with them.

If you agree to increase the number of hours worked in the month, your family will need toto tell us by the 21st of each month so we can adjust their nvoice and your pay accordingly.

Fair & Responsible Pay

We guarantee all our GrandNannies will be paid above real Living Wage, in London this is generally £12.50 per hour and in the rest of the UK this is generally £11.50 per hour.  This gross salary will be paid to you by GrandNanny’s in-house payroll people. 

The family you work with will pay a one-off set up fee of £285. Once you start work we will charge them an hourly rate which they will pay to GrandNanny. The set-up fee and the difference between the rate you get paid and the rate we charge to families covers a whole host of things that support you and keeps GrandNanny running.

Take a look at the How We Work for Parents page if you want to find out more.
