-----------------------------------
Just been offered a new job, to care for 3 children in their own home. A 5month old, 2 year old and a six year old (who will be in school 9-3 come September). It is for 3-4 days a week, eventually extending to 5 days. And is from 8am-5pm. All meals will be provided and there was no mention of housework etc.
I have just qualified with a level 8 honours degree in early childhood care and education and have first aid, manual handling, child protection etc. along with 3+ years of experience.
Both parents work and have good jobs, I don´t want to ask too much but I want to be paid fair considering my qualifications etc.

in their own home it would be around 12 euro per hour for 3 kids.

As you a nanny I´m their home, your entitled to at at least minimum wage, payslip, paid holidays etc see revenue.ie..however as you highly qualified you´d b at higher end of scale.. Up to €12 to €15, esp as you only part time to start with...you often here this part time days going up to fulltime but can never mmaterialise, it´s only to get you started...

Thanks guys. Was offered €60 for 9 hour day, so I left it after me as I just felt I wouldn´t be happy and would resent the job. Couldn´t take it on for less than minimum wage anyway.
