You can start on £9-£12 per hour (including holiday pay) depending on your childcare experience. We’ll need to be able to check this experience with references.

You’ll need to provide the contact details of your former employers (up to 4) who can confirm the role and the dates that you’ve worked, and where possible, plenty of details about your skills and experience.

Don’t worry if you are not eligible for a higher starting rate as you’ll still be able to earn more the longer you work with Koru Kids. You’ll get an extra 50p per hour after 6 months of working with us and a further 50p per hour after 12 months if your feedback from families is good.

🌱 Standard Experience - starts on £9-9.99 per hour, depending on your age (including holiday pay)

You’ll need to have had informal childcare experience or had professional roles that lasted less than one year.

🌿 Parental Experience - starts on £10.80 per hour (including holiday pay)

You need to have 3+ years of raising your own family.

🌳 Professional Experience - starts on £10.80-12 per hour, depending on experience and role (including holiday pay)

  • ✨ £10.80 (including holiday pay) - 1-2 years as a teacher, teaching assistant, nursery worker, nanny (paid, full-time or after school), childminder, foster carer, au pair, lunchtime assistant or passenger assistant

I𝗳 you have professional experience working with children but not in a role listed above, please do get in touch with us at care@korukids.co.uk to explain a bit more about your situation, as we may still be able to accept it.
