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:
Fill in the Nanny application form and we will contact you very shortly to discuss your options.
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.
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 https://www.justice.govt.nz/criminal-records/ If you are in the UK already and have not got a UK DBS check we can arrange this for you.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.”
