Dingo Recruitment specialise in placing Australian and New Zealand candidates in nannying roles, primarily in London. Families love the hard-working and can-do attitude we bring. Nothing is too much to ask for a Dingo candidate! We have a range of roles from junior positions right through to full time qualified nanny roles, so don't hesitate to get in touch no matter what your experience level, we would love to hear from you.
Once you apply with us, someone from the team will be in touch to let you know if we have any suitable roles for you.
It is good to start having a think about what sort of role will suit you best and what you want to get out of your time in London and the UK. We can chat over in more detail at your registration appointment.
Live in and live out permanent roles are usually hoping for a commitment of at least 12 months from their nanny. It is a big change each time for their children and even more so if you are living with them. Most of our nannies stay in their role for the duration of their two year visa as it is also great job security!
Types of Roles
Live In Nanny
As a live in nanny you will be provided accommodation, meals and all utilities. Live in roles are usually Monday – Friday and include some babysitting.
We have live in nanny roles where you can be looking after children of any age for 25-60 hours per week. Live in roles can be a great option for candidates who appreciate a family environment and like to be immersed in the children's lives.
You will always have your own room in the house and often own bathroom as well. As a live in nanny you can expect to earn from £300 GPW as a junior nanny, anywhere up to £700 GPW +.
Being a Daily nanny means you have your own living arrangements already or are in the process and you travel to the family home each day for your set hours.
Daily nannies are live out nannies who go to the family house each day. Again, you could be caring for children of all ages and anywhere from a part time role up to five days, 50 hours per week. We will make sure you are not travelling too far from where you are flatting/living. Some candidates arrive in London and find a role first, then look for a flat nearby to keep their commute as short as possible. As a daily nanny you will be paid an hourly rate which is usually between £13 - £20 gross per hour depending on experience and how many hours per week you work. Your consultant can guide you on this and give you a good idea of how much you can expect to earn each week.
Another variation is an after school nanny. These roles are great if you prefer working with school aged children and means you have shorter days in the term time and work full time in the school holidays. If you would like to find out more about how these roles work, please get in touch with one of our consultants. These roles work on an evened out salary structure and you can expect to earn at least £500 GPW
Temporary work is usually ‘live out’ and can be great for candidates who are looking for short-term work. A higher level of experience is often required.
We also have families who are looking for temporary nannies. This work can be anywhere from a couple of days up to three months depending on what the family require. If you only have short-term availibility, this could work well for you! As a temporary nanny you will usually be paid per hour and this can range depending on the hours and the role but is usually similar to a daily nanny role.
Joining a family as an au pair is a great way to experience the UK, learn English and experience British culture while sharing your culture and background with a family!
As an au pair you will usually be looking after school aged children and working up to 30 hours per week and are not considered an employee. You can expect to earn between £80 - £150 per week and all your meals are provided Monday – Sunday. You will live with the family and have your own room in their house and utilities covered. You do not need any childcare experience to work as an au pair but any babysitting, coaching, tutoring experience definitely helps! You are allowed time during the week to study or attend English classes and time off during the year to return home to visit your family.
