-----------------------------------
I only get paid if I´m there, if one of my days would fall on a bank holiday I wouldn´t be paid. I get 12 days paid holidays a year as I only do a 3 day week. No extra pay for school holidays or sickness I just have them all day then, so what do you think?

you should be on at least 15 euro an hour.you are the nanny plus you are cleaning the house cooking for the whole family and doing shopping.i would drop the cleaning also the cooking and shopping. just cook for the kids the parents should cook for themselves and clean their own house and do their own shopping.you were hired as a nanny not a cook /housekeeper.let us know what happens.

hi, is there anyone that could give me some advice on what to charge.
I´m a Nanny to 5 children in their home. I work 2 days 7am-7pm and 1 day 7am-2pm so 31 hours a week.When kids are in school I do cooking, cleaning, washing ironing and some shopping for the whole family. Kids all have after school activities but I use employers car so no costs there.

at least your getting 12 days paid hols.but you need to mention the fact that when you are not in that you still need paying.you could mention half rate see how it goes.you are doing a lot for them.do you cook for the parents also if so hit that on the head.11.60 an hour is not enough for what you are doing.you are looking after the kids and taking care of the house for them.a cook and cleaner get a lot more than 10 euro an hour.the parents have it easy and should respect that.

11.60 for 5 kids plus housework cooking and shopping.they are taking advantage of you.do you get paid when your not there.when kids are sick and do you get paid for any holidays they take.you should also cut out the cleaning of their house and also just cook for the children.
