Cleo is certainly one of the very best consultants I have been in contact with in this industry. From the very first contact, I was sure Cleo was exceptionally professional, genuinely caring and an excellent listener. Cleo's professional ethics are rare and I totally recommend Great British Nannies to parents and children professional governesses and nannies.

Cleo and Irena have been fantastic.From interviewing me to keeping me up to date on positions I applied for. Cleo helped me find my perfect job, thank you. Cleo always had time to answer any questions I had and put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend the agency for their professionalism and caring.

Cleo at Great British Nannies helped match me swiftly and efficiently to a Middle Eastern family in a Nanny/Governess role. Her approach is professional and highly personable, firmly grounded by a wealth of experience in this sector. Cleo stayed in touch throughout the application, interview process and placement with regular updates and communication. I highly recommend GBN as an agency for other professionals without hesitation and appreciate all the assistance provided by Cleo immensely.

I have worked with Cleo over the last few months to find a governess position. She has been fantastic, probably the best agent that I have worked with. She is very professional and doesn't try to push you into a position that you aren't suited for just to make money. She has been in constant contact with me throughout the process to make sure that I am aware of everything going on with the client. Cleo has been an absolute pleasure to work with.

Very professional and informative from start to finish, including initial agency placement and updates re potential jobs. I had been a little wary of agencies having been let down badly in the past but I've never waited longer than an hour or two for a response from GBN ' even on weekends. Now working for a wonderful family in Kazakhstan thanks to this agency. Thanks guys! đŸ˜€

Great British Nannies has been very helpful in finding me a suitable position. They were brilliant from the start, the application process was fast. Irina has responded to all my email very quickly, Elena was very friendly during the registration interview. Cleo was so helpful in helping me secure a job with a lovely family and she continues to support me after I started working. I would recommend anyone who is looking for work as a nanny to use this agency. It has been a wonderful experience, I could not ask for more.

Cleo was absolutely amazing with me, she kept up with all of my emails, questions and messages.
After applying for a suitable job, Cleo quickly arranged an interview time with me and after the client got in touch the following week I was given the job. I am super excited but also very happy that it was such a fast process and they match clients well with interviewees unlike other agencies I know of.

Interview was a really relaxed and enjoyable experience and not like most that are more formal, as for a nannying role I believe it is to be happy and relaxed to get to know the character of the candidate. They interviewed me before I met any client in order to make sure I was a suitable candidate which I though was superb and helpful and also give me full insight to the family and needs.

After finding the perfect job on the GBN website one evening I applied straight away. I received a reply the next day and the process started. Both Cleo and Irina were in contact each step of the way and got me through everything as quickly as possible. They were both extremely quick to reply to emails and made the whole process very easy and stress free. I later got to meet the family and was so happy to be offered the job! I would recommend these guys to anyone either searching for a job or to families that are looking for their perfect nanny.

Great British Nannies is a professional and reliable company. It's clear that Cleo has strong values and an excellent work ethic. Cleo has always been fast to respond to emails, on time for meetings and honest in her methods. GBN has some fantastic roles available, I really hope to be placed by GBN in the future. Thanks for everything folks, you're a great team. Kevin- Governor.

My husband and I used the services of Great British Nannies back in 2015 when I was looking for a maternity nurse for my first baby. I've heard mixed reviews about using nanny agencies in the past from friends; one however, had used Great British Nannies and told me about how easy the communication was with them, they had found her a great fit for her little girl at the time. I was given my own recruitment consultant (Irina) who was amazing from start to finish, ensuring regular communication and that we were completely on the same page about my needs. She understood the importance of finding the right type of person that would be able to help us in those first precious few months, so felt completely reassured considering I was extremely anxious at that point! They are excellent to deal with and I’ll be using their services again when the time is right.

Cleo and Great British Nannies have been more than amazing. I contacted them wanting a nannie in a very short period and my requirements were very specific. They replied swiftly and provided me with a few CVs that were all very good and hard to choose from. After choosing the Candidate, Cleo was very helpful and things went very smoothly and quick. When I arrived in london The Nannie Ayaan was pure perfection. She was there to take care of my two children (1.5yrs and 3.5yrs) and my nephew (8yrs) and she did an amazing job despite the major age difference between the children. Cleo has really provided me with the Nannie I need with the exact requirements I had provided to her. The whole experience from A to Z was really perfect and went very very well. I truly recommend GBN.

My first experience of Great British Nannies was on a Sunday over the Christmas period. I left a message about a post that I saw online (not expecting a call back for several days) and went about my business. Cleo phoned me within two hours and the roller coaster started! After I completed the registration form, Cleo quickly and more importantly, discretely followed up my references (which I gather is a one-off process and references are filed for future use). Within one week I was in Geneva starting a trial for a very good post. Unfortunately I decided I was unable to accept the job and informed Cleo. She was very supportive and understanding.
Great British Nannies have a real understanding of childcare and the importance of placing the right candidate with the right family.
Cleo contacted me again recently about a post she thought I was suitable for. I'm currently on trial for that post and she was right ! (Fingers crossed!). I have been fully supported regarding visa and tickets etc. Cleo also regularly keeps in touch making me feel valued.
I thoroughly recommend Great British Nannies and Cleo for all the aspects of their agency.

I have recently been placed in my current my role by Cleo and I am so happy that I chose to work with Great British Nannies. Aside from the role being an excellent fit, I have been continuously greeted with respect and professionalism. Cleo is prompt, reliable yet down to earth, genuinely cares about the clients and the candidates. I can wholeheartedly recommend Great British Nannies and I would return again without a doubt should I wish to find another wonderful family. Thank you, Cleo!

I highly recommend the Great British Nannies agency, as its amazing team provides high-quality services for both the families and candidates.
I want to thank Cleo and Irina for their incredible work and professional attitude. Within 2 weeks, Cleo (one of the most friendly person I ever met) found me a governess role in a Russian VIP family. I am so grateful that she and Irina always took the time to listen and answer to my questions, that they gave me some precious advice and were communicating every piece of information very fast. I am also happy that we could establish mutual trust from the start!

To Whom it May Concern,

I enlisted the help of Cleo during a governor/governess search for the Principals I work for. We were in need of an outstanding candidate who could mentor our nannies and who could be a role model for the children; someone who would understand borders and discretion, would be a consummate professional, but at the same time be a warm and friendly presence. We did not only want an expert, we also wanted someone who could be a pleasure to have in the home. Cleo provided me with a range of excellent candidates, all quite different from each other, but each outstanding in their own way. I found Cleo to be an attentive listener. She was quick and efficient and did not waste my time. She understood exactly what I wanted and presented me with it. Refined and genuine, with a great attention to detail, she was always on target with me. Her work is of the highest standard. I recommend her without reservation.
