Responsibilities if you employ a nanny

You will become an employer if you decide to employ a nanny. Becoming an employer comes with legal responsibilities such as checking that your nanny has the right to work in the UK, paying your nanny via payroll on a weekly or monthly basis, paying your nanny at least the minimum wage, providing your nanny an employer contract and paying employer national insurance contributions if your nanny earns over a certain threshold. Our nanny payroll service (at an additional cost) can process the payroll on your behalf and work out your employer national insurance contributions. As an employer, you also need to have employer liability insurance.

Our hiring process

We will review your completed registration form and also speak with you regarding your requirements. We will advise and guide you as appropriate particularly if this is your first time of hiring a nanny, au pair, mother’s or father’s help. Our aim is to understand the needs of your family and to match you with the right candidate for your family. We may also advertise the role so that we can attract a wider pool of potential suitable candidates as we only put forward those candidates we feel would suit your family.

We will email you information usually in the form of a CV of prospective candidates and guide you through selecting the right candidate for an interview as appropriate. We will then arrange the interviews for you and can give you guidance on questions to ask candidates if you wish. We will continue to provide support to you until you find the right candidate. Once you decide on who you wish to employ, we can email you a template offer letter and sample contract. If you employ a nanny, we can also process the payroll on your behalf (separate reasonable fee for this) and can pass on details of a company or companies who can provide you with employer liability insurance.
