What's the process when we find your nanny Canberra?

We’ll advertise and screen all applicants to present you only with strong shortlisted candidates. Then, once you decide who is right for your family, we help you set up employment and onboarding.

When seeking a nanny Canberra families need a nanny agency that works with them to recruit and secure essential nanny and household support.

Nanager’s team will build a clear picture of the perfect Nanager for your home would look like. We do this by asking you all the right questions in a complimentary phone consultation.


Arrange a time for your free consultation to pinpoint your exact needs.


We build a role that will attract a professional and maximise value to you.


We screen and interview applicants, then present suitable candidates to you.

Family Meeting

You select the Nanagers you want to meet for an interview.


We support both parties to negotiate an arrangement where everybody wins.


We help you set up and onboard the Nanager into their role.

Choose which service option is best for your family.

Once we find the perfect nanny Canberra families can choose between two options. We can take care of employment for you or, when you’re ready, you can employ the nanny yourselves (we can help you do this through NannyPay). Placements incur a one-off fee and save you money in the long run, allowing you more say and flexibility in your Nanager’s employment. Your exact quote will be based on the role you are looking to fill.


We find your Canberra nannies, then you employ them yourselves.

We will encourage most of you to move to this option following a probationary period after we find your nanny, particularly where the role has regular hours.

The Placement Fee is determined by the number of hours and the complexity of the role, but will typically be between 8-12% of the nanny’s expected annual salary. We understand every family is unique, so please reach out to discuss your needs and we’ll be happy to give you an estimate of the cost for your role.

We will handle all stages of recruitment and present you with candidates suitable for the role. Once we find your nanny and you’re all happy, you employ them independently from Nanager.

Once you’ve chosen your nanny, we encourage a probationary period of 2-4 weeks, where we handle their employment at an hourly rate, to make sure it’s a good match. After this, you pay us a one-off placement fee and begin employing your nanny directly (either by doing it yourself or by using our payroll partner NannyPay, who can handle the payroll administration for you).

This means you can continue to enjoy the support of your nanny Canberra or nation/worldwide!



Ongoing hourly rate

We take care of all employment requirements for an hourly rate.

This is a stress-free option with little to no admin for you. Many people use this option to trial their nanny before paying our placement fee to hire their nanny privately (lowering their per hour costs), but we can also employ long-term. This may suits the unique schedules for a nanny Canberra families require.

The final hourly fee will depend on the hours you require each week and your Nanager’s hourly rate. Your costs on top of their rate cover superannuation, payroll administration, daily booking fee and GST. 

We advertise and find your nanny using our recruitment expertise. From there, they will be set up as a legal employee of Nanager. We will take care of all insurances, PAYG, and super obligations and also help you onboard.

We will search, recruit, and employ your Nanager for you, taking care of everything. You will be responsible for an hourly rate (covering the nanny’s wage and employment costs), which you will pay to us via fortnightly invoice.

$48 - $55 per hour
