Part-time Playworker needed in London (£9-£12/hr)

The award winning childcare service Koru Kids is looking for students who would make amazing part-time nannies. You don’t need to have formal experience (although it’s great if you do).  The roles are part-time (9-20 hours a week) and usually in the afternoons - so you’ll still have time for studying, and keep your evenings and weekends free.

What are you going to do:

What you’ll be doing:

  • You will be a part-time nanny for one local family, looking after their kids in their home (or out and about at the park)
  • You might need to pick the kids up from school or nursery
  • Make the time you are with them fun e.g. board games, arts and crafts and baking (if you have a special skill or passion – we usually find children love to learn this too)
  • Supporting them with reading, homework and extra school work they may have
  • Making simple meals and snacks

You’ll love this role if:

  • You’ve worked with children before as a volunteer, babysitter or au pair
  • You’re a student who loves working with kids
  • You’re a trained childcare professional with experience in nurseries or schools

More on pay:

  • £9-9.99 per hour - you’ve got less than a year of adhoc childcare experience as a babysitter, volunteer or similar
  • £10.25 per hour - you’ve got your own children or have worked for over a year in a childcare role
  • £11-12 per hour - you’ve worked as a professional childcarer for over two years e.g. a nanny, teaching assistant, nursery worker or similar

What we offer:

  • Most roles are for 9-20 hours a week
  • You’ll get paid from £9-12 per hour depending on experience
  • You’ll get pay rises after 6 and 12 months
  • You’ll work with a local family
  • You’ll receive free nanny training, first aid training, an enhanced DBS check and insurance [worth over £300!]
  • We’ll support you every step of the way with continued development with free CACHE registered courses and 1:1 coaching

What we ask:

  • At least finished college A levels
  • You’re able to work on a part-time basis at least 3 afternoons per week usually between 3pm-6pm
  • You’re available during term-time in London
  • You have previous experience working with kids (this can be as a nanny, babysitter, or helping out at a local club or volunteering with kids)
  • You’ll need to pass a background check (which we provide) and have 2 personal references
