Our Fee

Our service is completely free to use for Nannies and Au Pairs, there is no registration fee and we take no fee from you once you have been successfully placed with a family.

The Paperwork

We work as an agency, matching you with a family. Once matched you will become an employee of a family and they will have a number of obligations..

Contract

Once you have accepted an offer from a family you will need to sign an employment contract. We recommend that you read the contract and if you need any advice, consult a solicitor or your local Citizen’s Advice Bureau.

Salary & Tax

If working as a Nanny, you will need to provide your employer with a National Insurance Number, which can be obtained by booking an appointment at a Jobcentre Plus. Your employer will then provide you with payslips that summarise earnings and tax.

Accrued state pension contributions in the UK can be transferred to your domestic pension system. You will need to retain all details of employment and at retirement age contact the relevant Government agency. In Sweden, it is handled by the Swedish Pension Agency.
