Showing Support for Childcare Professionals at the
Association of Nanny Agencies’ First Career Fair
“We didn’t realise how much support there was for nannies, it has been a great day.”
Megan – a nanny who attended the job fair
[9th April 2013] The Association of Nanny Agencies (ANA) held its first ever Career Fair for nannies and other childcare professionals at the end of last month and despite snow and freezing temperatures, attendance figures far exceeded expectation and the show was a resounding success.
The main aim of the day was to bring together childcare professionals and the many different agencies and other organisations that can offer advice and support for them. The exhibitors included nanny agency owners and managers, recruitment consultants, First Aid training providers, payroll and insurance service providers and committee members of ANA to name just a few.
The speaker events were very well attended, with lively question and answer sessions from the floor. Speakers included Anand Shukla, Chief Execuitve at the Day Care Trust; Dave Warboys from the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS); Kirsty Wild from Nanny Tax as well as Angela Spencer and Margaret Cowell from ANA.
One particularly spirited session was hosted by Sarah-Jane Butler from Parental Choice who answered many questions relating to nanny contracts and other legal concerns. Sarah-Jane provided invaluable advice for nannies who do not have support from reputable agencies on legal matters.
There were unbeatable networking opportunities for everyone in the industry. Nannies were able to sign up with recruiters and training companies while agencies had a chance to meet and talk to some really great nannies.
Commenting on the event, one of the visitors, Moira Walsh from Fulham Nannies says, “There was something of interest for everyone and a great opportunity to talk to people and learn just how much support there is out there for us. Well done to ANA for organising this and I am looking forward to going next year.”
Angela Spencer, ANA’s chairperson, adds: “This event was really an opportunity to get everyone together in one place and show just how motivated and committed we are to moving forward and becoming a more professional and accountable industry. I think we achieved this with the first event and are already planning an even bigger event for next year.”

Can a Nanny be self employed?
Many parents ask if a nanny can be self employed and pay her own tax and national insurance. The answer is usually no if they work for you under contract for the same amount of hours or same days per week.
Please see the attached link below with HM Revenue and Customs for further information.
This advice comes from our partners at Way2Paye:
‘Whether an individual is an employee or self-employed in a particular situation is a question of fact depending on the terms under which he or she works. When you engage someone to do work for you, you have to decide whether or not to apply the PAYE rules. It is up to you to get it right or suffer the consequences.In certain areas, HM Revenue & Customs has placed emphasis on reclassifying individuals claiming to be self employed. They issued a leaflet, ES/FSI, Employed or Self-employed? setting out the guidelines of employment status in the form of questions. These cover the following principal factors:
Please note: We strongly recommend that if you are in any doubt as to the status of an individual, ask HM Revenue & Customs to clarify the situation. Obtaining their approval will avoid the risk of you having to make a settlement of liabilities to tax or NI that you failed to deduct from the employee’s remuneration.
If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.’
