Nanny share

A nanny share is a great option for a flexible family, open to sharing and hiring a nanny with another local family.  The hourly rate for the nanny is reduced because you share the cost.

If you have secured a nanny or au pair privately and wish to have them professionally screened, we are happy to provide this service. Our recruitment team will screen your candidate and ensure your peace of mind. This service includes the full candidate screening process, as listed above, and costs $195.00 + gst

Payroll Service

As an employer, you are responsible for paying your nanny their wages, PAYE, Kiwisaver etc. Red Robin families are eligible for special discounts through our partners, who provide an end to end payroll service. They take care of every aspect of the payroll including leave management, deductions, ACC management and all filing with the IRD. All you need to do is make sure that your nanny’s timesheets are approved and they make sure your nanny is paid correctly and on time, every time. Let our team know if you would like more information about this payroll provider.
