There are many great opportunities to work in Child Care in London, as the city has a large number of schools and nurseries. It is also an ideal place to find work as a Private Carer, for example a Nanny or Au Pair, due to the higher percentage of families where both parents work. In fact, studies say that Londoners work the longest hours in Europe, which means Child Care at home is vital.
Child Care roles and recruitment in London
Nurseries also charge higher fees in London than the rest of the UK, which means a higher salary can be earned, although this must of course be set against the high cost of living in the capital. A typical salary for a Nursery Assistant in London is around £8 per hour, while a live-in Au Pair may earn around £100 per week, but avoids paying for accommodation. Work in Child Care may be temporary, for example at a summer school, casual work, such as Babysitting, or permanent, in a nursery or school.
You could also be employed by a Nanny agency, who would put you forward to work with families or nurseries. Some of the biggest employers in the Child Care sector are Tinies Nanny agency and Busy Bees Nurseries. Competition for Child Care work can be high, especially for roles where minimal qualifications are required, so experience of caring for children and a warm, professional manner are essential. Vacancies are often filled by recruitment agencies, who aim to match families or nurseries with the perfect staff to suit their children's needs and personalities.
