Becoming a Nanny in the UK
If you are interested in a career as a nanny, then it is important to know that there are no specific qualifications required for the role, but training in the field of playwork or childcare can be helpful, and a DBS check is essential before starting work as either a live-in nanny or a part-time nanny.
Working With Muslim Families
You may find a vacancy with a nannying agency or through a family advertising directly for help. Religion is not a prerequisite for nannying jobs, but it could be that a Muslim nanny is a good fit for a Muslim family, and an understanding of the Islamic faith may help understand the care needs for the children in question as well as their lifestyle.
Of course, Muslim people can work as nannies to those from other faiths, too. As long as you have a clean DBS check you are free to search and apply for vacancies and work through nanny agencies. Anti-discrimination laws mean that your religious background shouldn’t prevent you from finding a job and help to prevent outdated discriminatory practices in workplaces throughout the UK.
