Part-time or afterschool nanny will work as many or as little hours to suit their employer’s needs but normally expect to be paid for a minimum of 4 hours per day.

Temporary nanny will work on a short term contract for anything from few days to few months to cover in client’s permanent nanny’s absence or just to enable the family to have some time off.
Salaries depend on experience, qualifications and job requirements (hours, number of children etc) and are as follows:
Live in £350 to 450+ net per week or live out £10 + net per hour approximately £400 to 550+ net per week.
