There are lots of agencies in London to choose from, but from experience we know that you can end up feeling like “one in the crowd” if you register with an agency that’s got hundreds of nannies and au-pairs under their wings. It can be nice to be registered with an agency who knows your name, and who shares your excitement when you get the job you really wanted!
What’s so great with us is that we are recruiting and interviewing in both London and in Sweden, which means we can really be there for you from the start and support you along the way. We have been there ourselves; taking the leap out in the world and moving to work in another country. We know what it’s like to write a CV in a different language wondering why we didn’t pay more attention in English grammar class, thinking about whether we should bring two or three pairs of Wellingtons and going to interviews worrying we didn’t look at all like Mary Poppins. But don’t worry; we can assure you it will be worth it in the end! The experience you get from this whole adventure will probably be life-changing and no matter what, you will definitely grow as a person from doing this whole thing!
Our agency put a lot of effort into finding the best possible candidates so once we have found them we will make sure you find the best possible support in us! Since we have been in your situation ourselves, we know how important it is to have someone to turn to for advice and support even after you have taken on your position. So trust in that we will always be there for you, and give you the ongoing support you will need.
It's easy to make new friends in a city like London, but sometimes it can be nice to be surrounded by people who are in the same position as yourself. We organise social events for our nannies, where you can meet up and socialise, in Swedish! (It can sometimes be nice to leave the English out for a few hours!)
Find friends in the same area as you by writing down your name on our "social list", so that other nannies can contact you to meet up! Use our contact form and enter your name and address(when based in London) and specify that you want your name on the list.
Except for support and guidance The Swedish Nanny Company can also offer you:
