Every year Nannytax carries out our renowned Wages Survey to give nanny employers, nannies and nanny agencies the best idea of salaries across the country. We ask our clients, as well as nannies and nanny agencies throughout the UK what salaries they are paying or being paid as well as asking how many hours nannies are working, the kind of work they're doing and even more.

2014 Wages Survey Results
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 in our 2014 Annual Wages Survey Report.
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.Read more
2013 Wages Survey Results
To give a full picture of the results of the Annual Wages Survey, we are releasing a full report of the results including analysis of the facts and figures.
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.Read more
2012 Wages Survey Results
Katy Morton of Nurseryworld summarises . . .
Nanny salaries have fallen by nearly as much as five per cent over the last year, against a national average salary rise of 1.4 per cent, a new survey reveals.
Findings from the Nannytax annual survey show UK nanny salaries have generally fallen, with live-in nannies facing the brunt of cuts to their wages.
2011 Wages Survey Results
At the end of 2011 most are still feeling the pinch of the recession, so what does this mean for our nannies?
With the coalition government proposing austerity measures in many areas of the economy, belt-tightening looks set to continue for some time yet. This time last year, the annual Nannytax Wages Survey had shown nanny salaries across the board to have a reasonably healthy increase on 2009, indicating recovery for salaries. However, this year 60% of agencies believe there is no significant change in 2011 salaries on 2010 and comments from the survey have a common theme: 'Salaries have definitely decreased or frozen given the economic climate' . . . 'No massive change, however, the hours are longer and the perks are less'. . . 'A bit of frustration from the nannies but general understanding due to the economic situation of the country'.
2010 Wages Survey Results
In a time when most workers are being expected to tighten their belts, what could be driving nannies' salary rises? At the end of 2010 we looked back on a challenging year, with the new coalition government responding to economic pressures and making cuts in virtually all areas including childcare concessions, while raising VAT by 2.5 per cent. Back at the end of 2009 there had been a positive outlook for the nanny profession, with earnings slightly up on the previous year. Now we can take stock of 2010 with the latest survey results and see if that trend continued.
2009 Wages Survey Results
In a year that was predicted to be tough on the nanny industry we are presented with a distinctly hopeful picture in the latest nanny pay survey.
London and Home Counties salaries have recovered from last year’s decline, and while the rest of the country has yet to follow suit, historical patterns indicate that they, too, are likely to pick up.
2008 Wages Survey Results
The best-paid nannies in the UK have seen their earnings fall, but as the economy dives our annual wages survey reveals some other surprises.
In a year when everyone is anxiously waiting to see the effects of the changing economic climate, it is so far only the wages of nannies in central London that have been hit by decreases. Wages in the rest of the country have continued to rise, albeit more slowly than last year. But trends tend to strike London first, before being felt elsewhere. So nannies working outside London might also expect tougher times ahead.Read more
