How does it work?
Hire your perfect nanny in 4 simple steps.
Post your job
A job post costs either £99 if you do it via our site or £199 if we do it for you over the phone. There is nothing else to pay when you find a nanny through us. This is an important step - putting together a job description to detail what you are looking for but also to make sure your job attracts the right candidates.
Applicants who are interested in your job will apply directly to you. You will receive their application to your inbox with their CV and any other details they want to share with you. All the nannies in our network are screened and selected before they are able to apply to your job.
Choose your Favourite
This is the hard part! Start interviewing candidates at your convenience - either online or face to face. Set up trials with the candidates you like and choose your favourite.
You have met your dream nanny - now you can hire them to work with your family! You do not pay us anymore at this stage - you only pay once to post your job. However, if you need help at this stage with contracts, nanny tax or any admin at this stage we can offer some extra services to help you out.

You can post your job requirements to our website and receive applicants directly to your inbox. There is nothing more to pay when you find a nanny through us - which you will!
Take a look at the guide section for the article about writing a good job description. The job description must be well written with the right information to attract the best candidates.
We have thousands of nannies in our network but if we do not happen to have a nanny available for your requirements - then we will advertise externally to interview and invite new nannies to join our team and to apply for your particular job.
We prefer quality over quantity. There are plenty of websites who will offer you tons of candidates where at least 90% off applicants will be unsuitable or inexperienced. We want to offer you only the best possible nannies available. Therefore the average amounts of applicants are: Full time job posts = averaging 5-10 candidates Part time job posts = averaging 3-5 candidates Please bear in mind that these number can change according to the job requirements - EG if you need a nanny to start asap or a driver or a particular language then the average number of candidates may be lower. We are always 100% honest with clients when they post a job regarding how many candidates to expect and how long it will take to hire a nanny through us.
We really recommend at least a month to hire a nanny from the moment you post the job until when you need a nanny to start. We realise this is not always possible as work and commitments can come up last minute - but we will do our very best to process any urgent job posts as quickly as possible. We are a tiny team so this is not always possible.
After 12 years offering this service we have unfortunately decided to stop placing after school nannies as we want to focus on full time and part time nanny placements with professional career nannies.
We screen, select and interview every nanny to join our team - saving you time in your search for the ideal nanny. We have been matching nannies in families since 2011 and we specialise in offering nannies looking to commit long term to families.
Please refer to our T&Cs for all exact information on refunds. In the same way we like to build long lasting relationships with nannies - we like to do the same with parents. We cannot process a refund if you simply change your mind but we can of course offer you a free credit to post another job another time if your situation changes or something has come up. Please email us so we can hop on a call.
Since 2011 we have been placing nannies in families and we firmly believe in long term commitment from nannies. We can proudly say that 95% of our placements last as long as the parents need the nanny to stay. A few times a nanny has had to leave due to unforeseen personal circumstances. Either way - if we are wrong about a nanny, or she needs to leave sooner than you expected her to - you can post a free job post within 6 months if you used Maya service and a year if you used Betty. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information on this guarantee.
We ask each new nanny to join us to supply extensive information, a CV and two references. We also conduct a automated video interview with every new nanny to join us. We are always looking for that special something - and we really do have the nicest nannies in London in our network.
Yes indeed- we have partnered with Pebble to offer parents temporary and emergency nannies. Please find the information of how to book in the menu.
Typically, a nanny works in the daytime while a babysitter would work the evening generally while children are asleep.
