Can be a trainee nanny who has usually recently qualified but has a limited amount of hands-on childcare experience; often the first step in a career as a child carer.
A mother's help is employed to help parents with childcare in a ‘shared care’ capacity. Helping out as directed by the parent, they do not have autonomy or sole care responsibility as would a nanny although, occasionally, a more experienced mother’s help will be asked to take sole charge of the children or in time they will progress to sole charge when the parents feel confident that they are ready for the additional responsibility. General household tasks are expected such as washing, ironing, tidying, vacuuming and sometimes meal preparation.
This can be a suitable solution for some parents who are more hands-on with the children and require help in the house to give them more time.
As a rule, they can earn £100-£200 per week and would be expected to work up to 40 hours.
