Immediate start part time mothers help/ nanny wanted for one year old baby in Pollokshields

Hi We are a family of four and are looking for some care for our one year old baby on Tuesday morning, Wednesday all day and Thursday morning. We live in West Pollokshields (G41 4RR). I (mum) will be working from home most of this time so I will be available for baby to see, but I would like her to be cared for by you, primarily, while you are here. She is a lovely easy going baby, fun and enjoys socialising, calm and enjoys playing at home, and she also loves walks in the park in her buggy (she isn’t walking yet). She also loves seeing her big sister who is 6. Please let me know if you’d be interested and if you’d like to know more. Thanks Ailidh

Help with school pick-ups and drop-offs.

by School Rub • Reading
We are looking for people to work for our growing business - 'School Run'. School Run connects busy parents with childcare professionals who can help with school pick-ups and drop-offs. We're looking for local, trusted individuals to provide this valuable support. As part of the team, you'll have the opportunity to earn an hourly rate of £15 per hour, with the potential to increase this rate by doing more than one pick up/drop off. This is a flexible and rewarding job that allows you to help families in need while earning some extra income. The idea for the business came from our own experience when we moved to Reading from London in 2020 and didn’t know anybody in the area and therefore, didn’t have a support network to help with childcare duties when we needed it. We found it challenging to find reliable childcare support around school hours, and this inspired us to create a service that would connect families with local helpers quickly, in real-time. We've been working on this idea for the past 12 months, and we're thrilled to have started launching the business. The service is currently focused on one school in Emmer Green, but we plan to expand it to other areas of Reading over the next few months and eventually make it available nationwide.

FAQs for finding childcare jobs

What is the pay rate for a childcare job in 2023?

As of March 2023, the average childcare job posted on pays £10.57 per hour at a national level. This rate may vary depending on where you live, how many kids you need to care for, what your previous childcare experience is, any specialised training or certifications you have, and how many hours you will need to work per day or per week.

How can I find a childcare job?

You can filter open positions for all childcare jobs available in your area and compare them by hourly rate, whether the position is part-time or full-time, how many kids you will need to care for and what the ages of the kids are. You then need to create a profile on that lists the childcare experience you have and what your desired childcare job entails. Besides applying to open jobs, the families can also contact you directly about their needs.

How do I prepare for a childcare job interview?

To help stand out from the other childcare providers a family is interviewing, make sure you have thoroughly reviewed the job description so you can speak directly to the family's needs and anticipate questions they may have. You should arrive a little early and bring extra copies of your resume and the certifications you've earned. Expect the family to ask detailed questions about how you will act in specific situations you will find yourself in while caring for their children. Don't be shy about asking for clarification if you don't understand a question or have questions for the family. It's just as important that you're comfortable working for the family as they are having you work for them.
