Every year, the International Nanny Association polls as many nannies as it can reach about their salary and benefits. This year’s results are out! Here are some highlights:
- Agencies are no longer the way to find families (down 12% in five years), but that isn’t sending people to Care or Craigslist. Word of mouth is becoming key.
- But that said, more nannies than ever have written work agreements (up 6% in five years) which they negotiated directly with the parents.
- Nannies are congregating on Facebook (up 27% in three years) which is why North Carolina Professional Association of Nannies offers a member’s only Facebook support group in addition to the forums located on NCPAN.org
- Exactly half of the nannies are payed by a payroll service (up 15% in five years), and we can certainly recommend some.
- Not surprisingly, the two payroll services that invest the most into supporting professional development for nannies are the two that are most used: HomeWork Solutions Inc Household Payroll Services and Homepay (formerly Breedlove).
- The average rate for a professional nanny in North Carolina is $16/hr.
- North Carolina has two main market hotspots: the Triangle and the greater Charlotte area, though we have identified five regions that all employ nannies and attempt to find volunteer event hosts in all of them.
- North Carolina’s nanny market is equivalent to that of Ohio in terms of pay and concentration of local markets.
