I've been actively seeking a Nanny role for a couple of months. I signed with a number of agencies, made several trips to London and read a million family profiles! Some agencies were very good and unfortunately some were not so good. However, when I came across GBN, it was very clear to me that Cleo and her team were a cut above them all and then some. A thorough and fair registration process with excellent communication along the way. I felt that Cleo really took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for and explained her clients requirements very well. I was given honest, regular and timely feedback throughout every step of a job role application and, following an interview with a family, I have now secured a trial with them! A highly recommended and professional agency who really look after their candidates as well as their clients. More...

I have worked as a Maternity Nurse, Head Nanny/Nanny and Governess for over 30 years working with several agencies. Since working with Great British Nannies, I found I have been guided through every step while applying for a position. The level of professionalism is outstanding. For me a good agency is one that will do a good background and reference check and Cleo certainly did that. Cleo is an easy going individual, nothing is too much trouble. Her professionalism shows through as she continues to run an exemplary service for both the families and the ladies within her agency. As a Maternity Nurse seeking employment with a family, she was in constant contact to confirm at what level the negotiations for a contract were at. I highly recommend her services to both staff seeking employment to families looking for the perfect placement to help in their home pairing the right person with the right job is an art one that Cleo has mastered. I hope to be working with her for many years to come. I highly recommend the agency. More...

When my wife had to work internationally for two months, we needed a full time mommy replacement unit. Cleo and Irina listened carefully and responded with the perfect nanny - a 21st century Mary Poppins. We appreciated the coordial and professional communication and the treatment that made us feel royal. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a great company, a great nanny, and bespoke service.

There are so many agencies now to choose from , but I can recommend GBN 100% ! More...

Great British Nannies are a professional and reliable agency. Cleo fully understood the type of role I was hoping for and put me forward for a variety of positions, making sure I was comfortable and happy with each individual family. They found me a great temporary position which is exactly what I was looking for. I can’t reccomend the team at GBN enough. They are always willing and ready to listen to any concerns I have and helping me in anyway they can! More...

I've been working in the industry for a number of years and can honestly say that this is one of the most passionate and professional agencies I have dealt with. The level of service and attention to detail is absolutely impeccable. Cleo is a warm, intelligent and dynamic person with whom I've had the pleasure of dealing with. They do the basics right in terms of following through and actually doing what they say, because of this everything else flows from then on. With so many questionable agencies out there it's reassuring to have found one that does things right which ultimately benefits everyone involved, parents, staff and most importantly the children.

I am very satisfied with Great British Nannies. I contacted Cleo this year as I was looking for a tutor. She provided me with a list of candidates in a very short time. She was very attentive to my needs and I appreciated very much her efficiency in finding the appropriate candidates. Not only she provided me with a very high-quality service, she also regularly wrote me to ask if I was happy with my choice of tutor. I would definitely recommend GBN. More...

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. 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. More...

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. More...

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. More...

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! More...

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.

Sincerely,

Shane Malk

Writing this on behalf of my girlfriends Russian parents who sourced their live in nanny based in Moscow through this company. Her two younger siblings out grew the need for a nanny and recently parted company with her but she did the family proud and leaves behind two fluent English speaking children and memories they will cherish for years to come.
