Smooth application process with very helpful online chat whenever i needed advice / help. Finding families was straight forward and I was employed by a lovely family. Pay is very good for part time work and only working after school. Amazing service and amazing families.

They are ok

Not the worst but not the best either. From a nanny perspective they were ok. But feel for the parents. It would have been easier to not have the agency

perfect company for students

Working for Koru Kids has been easy and flexible. If you're looking for a job whilst you study, you can get hours that fit around you. You are working with lots of people, parents, children as well as parents. Overall a very positive experience.

Lovely company to work with

Been with Koru kids for a year now and have nothing bad to say. Families I’ve worked with are absolutely amazing and the fact that korukids takes care of all the hard parts makes my work life easier.

Decent student job

Your experience is honestly based on the family you work for. I have had 2 amazing families I have worked for and loved every minute. Your pay is calculated based on your age and experience and once I turned 21 I moved onto the highest bracket of pay which is still only £12 an hour, the lowest being around £8 . If you work privately you should be paid way more than this. Great for a student job but could be better with their pay

Amazing company! The parents I work with are so lovely and they make me feel really welcomed into their home.Going for an interview I advise you to make sure you have everything planned.Just don’t be nervous just be yourself and don’t be afraid to ask questions!

Have full control

KoruKids is a very good place to join as a nanny. You have control of the families you want to apply to work for and you don’t have to sit around waiting for someone from the company to get back to you. If you don’t get a response from a family, you just move on until someone does respond.


Full control to who you work for


Pay policy could be better.

Positive experience

I have been working for Koru Kids for one and half years and the experience was amazing from day one. They provided really useful training process and I often get pay rise every six months. It is definitely run by people who are passionate about this environment and I always get support I need. The only one thing that I would like to see improved is bank holiday pay.Overall really nice experience with this company!

Okay place to work

It really depends on the family you work for. I have had some lovely families whilst working there. The training is enjoyable, it’s great for students as most families want after school hours.

A fine company to work for. Not a tone of support. You do get a pay rise every 6 months if you can make it that long. Overall you could luck out and get a great family
