Live in and Live out

Hiring a live in nanny is still cheaper than a live out in all areas across the UK. There has been an interesting change in Central London where there has been a substantial rise in the live out salary for a nanny, from £32k annually to £35k. However it is now more expensive to hire a live-in nanny in Greater London (£24.5k) or in the Home Counties (£23k) than it is to hire one in Central London (£21.5k). Popularity of live in nannies continues to be low, this year 90% of employers asked have a live out nanny and nanny agencies say the demand is low.

 

 

Auto Enrolment Awareness

Auto enrolment is a new workplace pension regulation which will affect every nanny employer. In June 2015 the first nanny employers began contributing to a pension this will continue until 2017 when all new employers must have a pension scheme in place for their nanny. Thankfully there has be a huge increase of awareness and understanding regarding the new legislation across employers, nannies and nanny agencies.

In our 2014 survey only 16% of clients knew when the pension needed to be in place compared to 69% this year. Similarly 75% of nannies asked in 2014 didn’t realise that auto enrolment would apply to them whereas nearly 70% of nannies this year were aware that nannies could qualify. Nearly all (97%) of the agencies asked this year are aware of auto enrolment. Nannytax will continue to communicate any information about auto enrolment pensions that will affect the nanny industry.
