Amazing opportunities with a family who welcomed me as one of their own

“I have been so fortunate to have been connected with a family who welcomed me in as one of their own and provided me with amazing opportunities during my 3.5 years with them.

Without the team at One World Nannies I would not have seen the world in the way I have, built the connections I did and had the opportunity to experience life as a live-in nanny”

A recommended agency A+++

I have found Sue and Ruth just great to work with and very professional.
From when I first met Ruth here in New Zealand, who introduced herself and the Agency to my class when I was at Nanny School, to all the emails and helping find the right family in London, I have received great support.

Sue came to visit me, once I was settled in with my Nanny family in London. I have always had quick responses from them every time I needed to contact them. They were great at putting me in touch with other nannies from the Agency and I have made great and close friendships because of that.

It has been wonderful to have Sue’s guidance through the years

Sue at One World Nannies has been so supportive and a font of helpful information. Once all of the contracts were signed and our nanny started, Sue has been a constant. Always available if I had questions about how to sort out holidays, contracts or tax when my work situation changed and therefore conversations were needed.
Sue was always there on the other end of the phone to give advice, support and help. It has been wonderful to have Sue’s guidance through the years and I have recommended her and her agency to lots of friends. Thank you to Sue and One World Nannies.

Their advice was invaluable

I would thoroughly recommend One World Nannies. They made the process of finding a live in nanny so straight forward and showed us great candidates. They were also so helpful in talking through the considerations and logistics, I found their advice was invaluable and we were so pleased with the nanny we hired.

I also really liked how they really cared about the nannies: connecting them with a local network, staying in touch and even coming for a visit to check everything was OK. They really care about their clients as well as the nannies, it’s a truly personal experience.

Sue has a great instinct about what makes a good fit.

Sue is great, she takes the time to really understand the nuances of the type of nanny you are looking for and has a great instinct about what makes a good fit.

I would not hesitate to highly recommend them!

We have found two wonderful nannies through One World Nannies. Sue and Ruth truly listened to the description of our family and our childcare needs and suggested a set of candidates which really matched those.

We also felt that they really cared about the nanny’s perspective and whether our family would be a good match for them. As a result they made the search process which can be very stressful and complicated so much easier and straightforward. I would not hesitate to highly recommend them!

One World Nannies has been a great long-term partner

One World Nannies has been a great long-term partner, helping us with high-quality, nurturing nannies for both our little girl and boy, and at reasonable charges.

I can’t recommend One World Nannies highly enough

Finding a nanny for our small girls was a huge worry and One World Nannies has twice helped to find wonderful nannies for us who have truly become part of the family. Sue took time to understand our needs and our family, and sent us a good selection of candidates to meet. As our role is quite demanding and involves sole charge we were very careful in the interview process and Sue was supportive throughout as we discussed candidates and asked questions. The whole team has been prompt and supportive and also provided excellent follow up once the nanny had been selected and placed. We are still in touch with the first nanny placed with us by Sue and the second is in post and has been a hugely valuable addition to the family during lock down. I can’t recommend One World Nannies highly enough.

3 great jobs in the 7 years I have been in the UK!

When I first moved to London from New Zealand , I tried many agencies and none were personal or cared. Then I found One World Nannies, Sue and Ruth were amazing . They cared and Sue rang me weekly to see how I was and found me interviews . Now 7 years later, they have found me 3 great jobs here in London and I haven’t yet left United Kingdom . Best Nanny agency I have found and thank you so much for everything.


My personal favourite!

After having tried multiple different nanny agencies, I found One World Nannies to be my personal favorite. I wasn’t just someone to get placed, but a person who wanted to find a loving family away from home. I found that instead of placing me with anyone they would find families where we would have similar mindset/ personality and goals.  I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive company to help me out while I was in London, whether I sort advice regarding work, or personal life. I really enjoyed working for Sue and Ruth, both very easy to contact and always got back to me promptly.  I appreciate all the help and support I received and couldn’t be more thankful for finding an agency that actually cares about you and the families you may work with.


An agency that works hard to get to know their nannies

“We  had a wonderful experience with Sue and Ruth at One World Nannies. Right from the start they made the transition to London a breeze. Not only did their encouragement and welcoming selves put us at ease with the process – their dedication to making sure all our paper work was in place and that we had interviews set up was wonderful.
Both Ruth and Sue made the effort to get to know their nannies as individuals and we had many catch ups throughout the process.
We have been back in NZ for a while now but they make sure they check in with us and keep the relationship alive.  These ladies truly care about their nannies and go to extremes to make sure we are happy, content, have great jobs and even introduce us to other Nannies to socialise with.”

Easy and efficient process

‘Looking for a nanny to care for your children is an extremely important and daunting task but luckily Sue and Ruth have always made the process easy and efficient. We have two children, ages 3 and 3 months and have secured very caring, experienced and lovely nannies through One World Nannies


We would not hesitate to recommend One World Nannies

We have been delighted with the nanny that was placed with us through One World Nannies. She is a very competent and caring nanny. One World nannies have offered us a very professional service and were able to help us on issues to do with the nanny share arrangement and Ofsted registration for our nanny. Our daughter has got on really well with the nanny and we have been very confident in her abilities to care for our daughter and stimulate her through her changing needs as she has developed over the past year. We would not hesitate to recommend One World Nannies and we will definitely be using them again when I return to work from maternity leave for the second time.


We have been very pleased with the high calibre of candidates

…Finding the right nanny for your bundle(s) of joy can be a challenge. The team at One World Nannies have helped us out on two occasions and each time we have been very pleased with the high calibre of candidate and the ease of getting through the hiring process. Ruth and Sue actually listen to your requirements and this is reflected in their lovely candidates. Our nanny is part of the family and we are incredibly grateful to Ruth and Sue for sending her to us. We would highly recommend One World Nannies and would not hesitate to use them again…

Thanks guys for all your hard work!

Sue and Ruth are absolutely amazing and I recommend One World to anyone I can. They work so hard to find you your perfect job and they never forget about you even after you have your job they are calling up to check up on you and have a good old chat. Thanks guys for all your hard work.


Very friendly, and really care about your needs and wants

I would highly recommend One World Nannies to others looking for a job. Sue and Ruth are very friendly and really care about your needs and wants. They call regularly to see how you are getting on and hand out really good advice when needed. They have manged to build a good base in London and are willing and able to find the right job for you!!


A smooth transition into London living

One World Nannies has been a large reason for my smooth transition into London living. I have had constant support since day one of getting in touch with Sue, throughout the recruitment process and now throughout the time I am working as a nanny here. I have felt very comfortable approaching Sue or Ruth if I’ve ever had any questions and they are always interested in how I am doing. Not only do they support the families and the nannies, but they also provide a wide range of ideas to do with the children, and also for nannies to do in their spare time, ways to meet new people and make the most of life in the UK 


I highly recommend the agency to other Nannies I meet

One World Nannies have been an excellent agency to work with! Sue and Ruth worked hard to ensure that both the family and myself matched well with each other before putting me forward- which worked out perfectly. I had an amazing opportunity to work in rural England for 2 years on my visa with the full support of the agency; I was contacted by Sue within a week of arriving to check in with how I was and if I needed anything, and eventually met Sue in London to discuss how the placement was going. It all went so well I was very saddened to leave! There was always opportunities to network with other Nannies throughout the country, especially in London. My experience with nannying overseas was greatly improved through working with One World and I highly recommend the agency to other Nannies I meet back here in NZ 


I have already recommended this agency to others

I was paired with two lovely families in a nanny share situation through the help of Sue and Ruth. They were based in central London, close to some of the cities most famous landmarks! These families were the perfect match for me and we are still in close contact after i returned home to NZ. Sue also supported me during my time as a nanny in London, and offered advice when needed when taking care of 2 challenging baby girls. I have already recommended this agency to others, and will continue to do so, you won’t find a better agency to go through!


A great experience

I had a great experience with One World Nannies. Sue and Ruth supported me in preparing for, then finding my perfect job, interviewing and negotiating a contract, and were always available to talk through any issues that came up. They were a great connection to have when arriving from New Zealand, not knowing anyone, or how the job market worked. The personal, friendly experience they provided was much appreciated. They were happy to connect me with other nannies in a similar situation. This contributed to my experience in London being so great, and I would recommend One World to anyone looking for a nannying job in London.


We would not hesitate to use them again…

We have used One World Nannies three times now over more than 6 years and have been very pleased with the nannies found through them. They are very easy and straightforward to deal with and we would not hesitate to use them again when our current nanny’s visa comes to an end. We would recommend One World Nannies to others.


Long term help and support

We first sought out One World Nannies about 8 years ago after having experienced a number of disappointments with other agencies and the nannies they placed with us. We immediately welcomed a young women via Sue and Ruth into our life who continues to be a friend today; and our family started a wonderful journey and long term relationship with One World Nannies. As the years went by and our jobs, family size and needs changed, One World Nannies always accommodated and came along on the journey with us. We had a number of wonderful women who as a result worked with us as full time, part time or as live in nannies over nearly a decade; and my children are so much better for it. Sue and Ruth are reliable, caring and become partners to the families they work with and trusted confidants to the women they place. I can’t recommend them strongly enough’


I loved working as a nanny in London…

I loved working as a nanny in London, it is so easy to get around, so many fun and exciting things for children to do and a great lifestyle as well. It’s super easy to make friends and there’s always new/different things/places to explore! One world nannies was the perfect agency for me as Sue is very hands on and only recommends you for jobs you would be suited to. I had a great relationship with my nanny family because Sue helped foster a perfect match.


An unforgettable experience

Sue and Ruth made my working experience in London comfortable and one I’ll never forget. Sue supported me from the beginning and right through till the end. She made sure she fitted myself and my nanny family together by taking the time to get to know our personalities and interests. One World Nannies genuinely care for the well-being of their nannies and their families and I highly recommend them!
