Hello, we are moving to Oxford from overseas and are starting to plan on expenses. Does anyone know what's the going rate for babysitters (for the occasional date night) and for a weekly cleaning lady?

Anyone, please?

Sorry I've been slow to respond Klika. I am not sure about either. I had a cleaner for a while but it was ages ago and I don't know what the current rates would be. You could try this link and scroll right down the page to the jobs wanted listings. http://www.dailyinfo.co.uk/jobs-wanted
I notice cleaners are charging between £6.50 and £10. Maybe worth contacting some. It would be more expensive going via an agency.

I'm not sure about babysitters but I'd guess about £8 per hour - perhaps a bit less.
Good luck with your move.

I didn't know that site. Thanks a lot, Rachel!
