Overview

We’re looking for people who wish to make a positive impact by looking after kids in the afternoons during school term (starting in September).

We’d love to hear from people who ideally have more than 1-year experience as a nanny, childminder, au pair, foster care or in a professional childcare setting, such as a nursery or school. People with parenting and/or babysitting experience are super valuable too.

What matters most is that you’d love to help a nearby family as they juggle work and family life as they raise their children.

Your responsibilities:

  • You’ll work with a local family, picking up the kids from primary school in the afternoons.
  • You’ll look after the kids and help them out with homework, dinner and planning fun activities.
  • You’ll work 2-5 days up to 20 hours a week – starting in September.

Benefits:

  • £9-12 per hour starting rate depending on experience*
  • You’ll get an extra 50p per hour after 6 months, and another 50p increase after 12 months
  • It’s part-time. Choose how many hours you’ll work (up to 20 hours)
  • Afternoon hours to fit your morning commitments
  • In the Orpington local area
  • Free DBS check (if required)
  • Free online after school nanny training (~2 hours)
  • Free online paediatric first aid training (if required)

*You’ll start on between £9 and £12 per hour (including holiday pay) depending on your previous childcare experience**. You’ll also earn more the longer you work as a Koru Kids nanny. You’ll get an extra 50p per hour after 6 months, and another 50p increase after 12 months.

What are we looking for?

  • We accept applicants from all backgrounds and different levels of experience** to apply to become an after school nanny.
  • This job is perfect if you are looking for a part-time job (9-20 hours per week) to fit around other commitments.
  • You should be available to start in September.
  • You should be able to commit to helping the family primarily during school term-time, with potential to also work during school holidays.
  • Being great with kids is a must!

**Your experience:

  • Basic experience – starting at £9 per hour – You have some experience as a babysitter or working in an after school club or similar.
  • Parenting experience – starting at £10 per hour – You have grown up children so you know all the ins and outs of childcare.
  • Professional experience – starting at £10-12 per hour – You’ve worked as a teacher, teaching assistant, nursery worker, nanny, childminder, lunchtime or passenger assistant, or similar childcare roles. Your rate is based on the length of your experience and roles you’ve had: £10 for 1+ years of experience; £11 for 2+ years of experience (excluding lunchtime or passenger assistant); £12 for 3+ years of experience as a nanny
