To give a full picture of the results of the 2014 Annual Wages Survey, the results including analysis of the facts and figures is available here in our 2014 Annual Wages Survey Report.

 

Gross and Net Salaries

This year Nannytax are continuing to publish weekly and hourly gross rates along with weekly net and annual gross salaries, which we did for the first time for the 2013 Survey Results. Much of the nanny industry continues to discuss salaries in net terms, although 2014 results show that discussions in gross terms are becoming more common. 57% of nanny employers and 61% of nanny agencies are seeing the benefits of discussing in gross, while nannies still resist with only 36% agreeing their salary in gross. What is a concern is that 17% of nannies didn't know whether their salary is agreed in net or gross, showing that there is still work to be done in this area.

Salaries Decreasing

Our results for 2014 have shown small movement in nanny salaries across the UK. Live out nannies in Central London appear to be the worst off with weekly net wages decreasing by as much as £35. By contrast nannies in the rest of the UK have seen their annual gross increase by over £1000.

Live in nannies in London and across the country have also seen their wages fall, with nannies outside London earning the lowest since 2010.

See tables below.

Social Media

This year we have also investigated the use of Social Media amongst nannies and how employers feel about their nanny sharing aspects of their work on online profiles. With Social Media being very much a part of contemporary life the results make for interesting reading, the survey even prompting employers to put measures in place to ensure nannies are not sharing family details.
