A nanny share is where nanny cares for the child or children of two or more families at the same time, and the costs are split between the families.  These types of arrangements are becoming an increasingly popular way of making nanny employment more affordable and accessible for many families.

Nannies can often work for multiple families, either by caring for the children all at the same time or splitting the week between them.

All employers will need to register with HMRC separately and pay nanny the National Minimum Wage (Living Wage if the nanny is over 25) or above. It is also advisable that each family agrees on a gross salary with the nanny so that the employer’s overall costs are protected. They nanny should be given a contract of employment from each family.

It is important to remember that however many families the nanny works for, each family will be considered an individual employer and as such have individual responsibilities, even if the children are being cared for at the same time.
