LEADING childcare service Koru Kids is searching for hundreds of nannies in Greater Manchester to meet a soaring demand from under-pressure parents.

The platform, which matches suitable candidates to families needing help in their area, has expanded into the region following a period of sustained growth.

And now it is on the hunt for candidates to help provide reliable and consistent childcare solutions to parents who need an extra hand.

CEO Rachel Carrell, who founded the firm in 2016 after finding it difficult and expensive to balance career and family demands, said: “Accessing suitable childcare is one of the biggest problems families face in this country, and the pandemic has only made things more difficult.

“The system is broken, and it’s left to parents to plug the gaps – often to the detriment of their career prospects and family lives.

“Since launching in 2016, we have helped thousands of families pair up with after school nannies in their local area and we want to make this service as widely available as possible.

“Through Koru Kids, parents are able to access flexible and consistent childcare that meets their needs, and our nannies are able to work part-time to earn extra money while they balance other commitments such as education or another job.

“We want to find 2,500 new nannies per month across the UK so we can help the ever growing number of families who need an extra helping hand picking up the kids from school.”

Koru Kids is one of the UK’s top childcare service providers and specialises in recruiting, training and matching nannies to families.
