The Nanny Wars: Bring It On!

Any parent knows that finding great childcare is worth its weight in gold, but a stash of the precious metal is the very least you will need after a nanny war broke out in the UK.

Forget Mary Poppins and her tatty tapestry bag, these days you’re more likely to need Gucci or Prada to entice a nanny or au pair to your door.

In fact, wealthy families are so desperate to secure top child-care that they are resorting to dirty tactics and eye-watering salaries according to London agency, Polo and Tweed.

Minimum salaries of £70,000 a year, Range Rovers, regular spa treatments and holidays abroad are the least they expect if you want them to think the job you’re offering is Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

In fact, some even throw in an all-expenses flat in exclusive areas of London to seal the deal.

Agency founder Lucy Challenger admits: ‘I’ve heard of one family who stole their friends’ nanny after they’d seen how good she was while at a dinner party at their house. They subtly got hold of her number and offered her a £70,000 salary and a Range Rover as a signing bonus.

‘Others have staged meet-ups with their friends’ child-care to poach them by offering pay rises of up to £25,000’.

In post-Brexit Britain, there are 20 per cent fewer nannies looking for jobs in the UK while demand has risen by 30 per cent according to research by Childcare.co.uk.

As a result, nannies are increasingly aware of their earning power and will ask families to make formal offers outlining the benefits they’ll receive including gym memberships, paid driving lessons and weekends away. Lucy admits: ‘The simple truth is if you don’t want your nanny to be poached you need to think seriously about giving them a pay rise. There really has never been a better time to be a nanny in the UK’.

There’s also a shortage of au-pairs because only Europeans with pre-settled status under the EU settlement scheme can now work in the UK post-Brexit, or if coming from Australia and New Zealand, they need a Youth Mobility visa.

Lucy admits that working for a wealthy family can come with its own challenges – limited time off, inflexible hours and high expectations.

But while high net families can afford the rises in nanny prices, many on ordinary professional salaries are struggling to find affordable care for their children and are having to rely on untrained students as babysitters while they are at work.
