Nanny in England

If you are planning a working holiday as a nanny or au pair in London, we will find you an amazing UK Nanny, Mothers Help, or Au Pair job before you land in England.

Nanny in London

This will save you so much money and so much stress - no worrying about how long it will take to find work - and no spending money on accommodation, food, buses and the tube while you look for work. 

We organise your job before you leave NZ plus we help with lots of other logistical stuff like advice on which visa to apply for, help on choosing a family (if needed) and assistance finding flights - right through to our brilliant stress free visa service

What you get:

  • Pre-arranged nanny, mothers help, or au pair job (depending on your experience and or qualifications) in London and surrounding areas, before you leave NZ*.
  • You choose the family - we arrange skype interviews with families you like and once you've interviewed you can accept the job or decide to keep interviewing. 
  • A signed offer and contract before you leave NZ*
  • We make sure you're applying for the correct visa and can help do the application for you as an add on if you want to do that option too. 
  • Support in NZ before you leave plus in the UK after you arrive - throughput your entire stay
  • Access to other Kiwi Nannies living in the UK via our Private Facebook group 

We place all our nannies before they leave NZ making the whole thing super hassle free. 

We have placed every Kiwi nanny (100% of accepted applicants) since 1994.

*just as long as you're flying direct to the UK and not touring the world beforehand

We've been doing this since 1994 so that makes us
the most experienced International Nanny Agency in New Zealand.

How we help make your stay in London stress free as a nanny

Our London office is available for you after placement if you have any concerns or questions, and also to link you up with other nannies in your area. They can help you with any issues that may arise with the family or the children.

Types of jobs available

The families are usually based in central London or in the areas surrounding London with easy commutes to the central part of London. Most jobs are live in, as that way you can save all your earnings for travelling. You can see the types of jobs available in our brochure below, on our website or on our UK Nanny job page

What you need to apply

If you have child care experience and can get references, we would like to help you get a great job in the UK. You'll need about 200 hours experience, preferably in the home, or at a daycare or childcare centre. Sole charge is needed to find you a sole charge job. We do have jobs to suit all ranges of experience and qualifications so it will depend on assessing your application and experience - please outline it all carefully on your application form so we can get started. 

Visas for the UK

If you are aged 18-30 or have British parents you may be able to work in the UK for up to 5 years. Check out what types of visas you may qualify for for your OE in the UK. 


We want to make sure that your stay in the UK is a happy one

and to this end we will endeavour to find the best job for you. There is a good demand in the United Kingdom for young people with or without qualifications to work in the field of childcare and since New Zealanders have proven themselves to be capable, willing, hardworking and adaptable they have become a popular choice for families looking for help - we drive on the same side of the road and speak the same language!


We've got your flights and Insurance covered too.

You can easily book your flights and insurance through our Travel Department IWH Travel  


When you arrive in the UK:

  • Our nannies have a job to arrive to so the family collects them, if not we can arrange an airport transfer - then we arrange interviews for you soon after you settle in. Usually the only reason we don't have a job for you before you arrive is if you have prior travel plans before you can start work. 
  • We will offer accommodation if you have nowhere to stay (we have budget hostel accommodation options for you) 

Once you have started work:

  • We will put you in touch with our network of other nannies in your area 
  • We will keep in touch, particularly in the first few weeks, to make sure all is going well 
  • We have a 24 hour line for any problems you might have - based in the UK (same time zone)
