New this year

This year for the first time Nannytax are publishing weekly and hourly gross rates along with weekly net and annual gross salaries. Historically the nanny industry has always talked about and agreed net wage figures, and this is why previously the survey results have also been present as a weekly net. Many nannies, employers and agencies, particularly in the South of England, are still agreeing a net wage.

As Nannytax have been campaigning for nanny agencies, employers and nannies themselves to agree gross salaries for many years we feel that our Wages Survey results should reflect this. The gross figures should also give a clearer picture of the actual average rates across the country.

Despite other surveys indicating that childcare costs have increased by as much as 19% across the country, our results show that the increase in nanny wages has been much smaller.

Although the recent economic growth in the UK is very much London-led, nannies in London have seen their wages fall or stagnate. This is particularly interesting in relation to findings from the survey relating to other key differences in the nanny industry in London – namely that London nannies are much more likely to originally be from outside the UK and are more likely to agree a net wage.

It is also interesting to note that live-out nannies have seen their wages remain much more stable than live-in nannies. Although the increase in salary for live-in nannies has been much greater in Outer London and the Home Counties, we can see that the drop in salary for live-in nannies in Inner London has also been much greater. Demand for live-in nannies has been historically low and remains low, and this may be the reason for the sharp drop in wages in Inner London.
