Looking for a job that fits around your creative career? Want to help drive the STEAM revolution and help the next generation build creative skills and mindsets?

Families all over London are hiring creative professionals to help with part-time childcare. Musicians, designers, freelancers, writers, photographers are really sought after at the moment. The roles are local and usually in the afternoons, leaving your evenings, weekends, and holidays free for your other work and hobbies.

What you’ll be doing:
  • Inspiring children through crafts, baking, music, or games - whatever your talent is, we find kids love to learn from skilled and passionate creatives!
  • Helping the children explore outdoors with walks to the park, playground, or anywhere local you think they will enjoy playing and learning
  • Supporting them with reading and homework and inspiring curiosity
  • School pick up
  • Making simple meals and snacks

Perks and benefits:
  • You’ll work on a regular basis for the same, local family in their home
  • No qualifications necessary - just a passion to work with kids!
  • You’ll be on a PAYE contract (no worries about taxes!) We take care of contracts, sick pay, holiday pay and make sure you’re paid correctly and on time
  • You’ll get paid from £9-12 per hour depending on your age and experience
  • You’ll get a pay rise after 6 and 12 months
  • You’ll receive free training, first aid training, an enhanced DBS check and insurance [worth over £300!]
  • We’ll support you with continued development, including with free courses and 1:1 coaching

You’ll love this role if:
  • You’re a creative professional looking to supplement your current income
  • You can commit to regular afternoon hours
  • You love working with children and are passionate about inspiring a love of the arts in the next generation
  • You’ve worked with children as a babysitter, volunteer, childrens’ educator, or similar

We have 4 pay tiers that make sure you get paid fairly and based on your experience.
  • Tier 1 - £9-9.99 per hour - for nannies with adhoc childcare experience such as a babysitter, volunteer or similar
  • Tier 2- £10.25 per hour - if you’ve raised your own family or had 1+ years experience working with children
  • Tier 3 - £11 per hour - You’ve worked as a professional childcarer such as a teaching assistant, in a nursery or a nanny for 2 years
  • Tier 4 - £12 per hour - You’ve worked as a professional childcarer such as a teaching assistant, in a nursery or a nanny for 3 years

Is it a great job? Here’s what our nannies say:
“Koru Kids is a great way of earning a little extra income, while doing something fun and still being able to progress my career as a freelancer.”

“I’ve tried lots of other part-time jobs, and this is by far the best. Regular hours you can depend on, and working with kids is great. I used to do part-time retail jobs, but working for a local family has been really fulfilling.”

“I have been with Koru Kids for over a year now. I genuinely have never been so satisfied with working for a company this much in my life.”
