Want to work in the UK ? Our agency is FREE to nannies!

If you have a recognised nanny or teaching qualification or experience looking after children just follow these simple steps:

Step One:

Fill in the Nanny application form and we will contact you very shortly to discuss your options.

Step Two:

We will initially arrange a telephone interview with you to discuss your ideal job and then in due course meet with you either in New Zealand or the UK either virtually or face to face to formally check your ID.

Step Three:

We will require a copy of an up to date Police Check from your home country – these can take a few weeks and if applying from New Zealand here is the link you will need  If you are in the UK already and have not got a UK DBS check we can arrange this for you.  

Step Four:

We will require at least two references from previous childcare work you have done. These should be recent and ideally from your last two employers (not from relatives).  Referees must be able to speak English and be contactable by email initially so we can send them out our reference forms before we follow up with telephone calls.  In due course it may also be necessary for them to talk to prospective employers about you ahead of a job offer being made.

Step Five:

We will help you get your CV in shape and ready to be sent to families.          It is also important that you have a current First Aid qualification and we will provide you with more information on this at this point.

Step Six:

You will need to a Visa to work in the UK unless you have a UK Passport. These can take some time to process so it’s worth starting early! Contact your nearest British Consulate for advice and check out this link for visa information UK Visas and Immigration. In addition you may also need to budget for this Healthcare Immigration Overview

Alternatively you can pay a company like Britbound to help.  They sell a range of packages to help you organise the formalities such as visas, national insurance, and banking (including international fee-free money transfers).  They also when permitted, organise social events.

Step Seven:

Interviews may happen over virtually on the phone or via methods such as Zoom in the first instance, and then face to face. We make every possible effort to match you with the right family, assessing their needs as well as your own requirements.  We will help you through the whole process of choosing a job, and guide you on salary and contract advice too.  If you are not in the UK we may link you up directly with families to make it easier for both parties to arrange a mutually convenient time to chat.

Our Nannies Recommend Us!

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!


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.


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.


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!
