A passion for providing amazing childcare

Love what you do, and it shines through every day! Working with us is simple and enjoyable!

We love providing the highest quality emergency childcare, and if you do too, we’re bound to be a great match. 

The families who use our service do so because their usual childcare solution is unavailable, for whatever reason. Therefore reliability and trustworthiness are two of our guiding principles, alongside confidence, preparation and great communication.

Every day is different when you work with British Nannies. Bookings you receive might be for as little as 4 hours, or for as long as two weeks or even more. You choose which bookings to accept, on days when you are available to work.

We receive emergency childcare bookings from families all around the UK, so depending on your location we can offer full-time, part-time or ad hoc employment.

Lots of variety working with different families

Excellent hourly rates and weekly payroll – get paid the same week you work!

Employed position – so no need to worry about managing taxes yourself (self-employed people also welcome)

Auto-enrol pension scheme

Annual leave entitlement and statutory sick pay

Amazing benefits package including private healthcare, discount and rewards programme, and funded certification renewals (subject to eligibility).

Feedback from our team

We asked members of our professional childcare team how they felt about working with British Nannies – from our recruitment process, all the way through to receiving and undertaking emergency childcare bookings. This is what they said…


My first job was excellent, I had a lovely 2 days and enjoyed myself. Mum and child both seemed happy when I left and had positive feedback for me. I found the application process and Tamsin and Claire very supportive through it all. The team are always available for me to call if there’s an issue and I feel supported when going to a booking. I would highly recommend the company for anyone who wants a job that is flexible for them to work around other jobs or their studies, like me.


I have worked for British Nannies for more than three years. During this time, I have always found plenty of work a reasonable distance from where I live, and always with nice families. Quite a few of my bookings have been long term.  British Nannies has always given me excellent support. I recommend working for British Nannies, I will certainly continue with them.



British Nannies is a great organisation, with an excellent set of values, offering flexibility without compromising quality and professionalism. I enjoy being a nanny in different family environments!
