UK/NZ Nanny agency placing Nannies in London and the UK


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.

We also recommend tax advisory service Nanny Tax.

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!


Sue was my first contact in the UK for nannying and she has been 100% best choice! She has got to know me and understand what I have to offer to pair me with a suitable family. Sue is always there for you and only wanting what’s best for all!

I couldn’t recommend Sue at One World Nannies enough. She made my experience so easy, and was so thorough and professional the whole time. She’s ensured I was well looked after and has always checked up on me. Both families and Nannie’s are very looked after and well matched, very grateful for Sue!

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.

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.
