Why hire a Great British/English Nanny Agency?
The advantages of hiring an English or French speaking Nanny
Nannies, governesses and tutors generally spend between 40-50 hours per week with the children they are working with. Due to a complete immersion of a new language and enjoyable learning environment, your child will learn a new language at an accelerated speed. With this intensity, a language can be learnt much faster than the original approach to learning a foreign language.
Goodbye to language barriers
The earlier a child begins to learn a new language with a native speaker, the less likely the child is to form a language barrier. By learning a foreign language from an early age, the child will subconsciously use the same methods as in the study of their native language.

Cleo and Great British Nannies have provided us with an excellent service. Having looked at another agency, I went with Cleo because she took the time to understand my requirements, my family environment and me as a person to place the right kind of nanny with us. She is extremely dedicated and efficient and I was able to put my trust in her wholeheartedly to enable her to place a nanny that was an excellent fit into our family.
I came to GBN seeking a governess position. I found Cleo both professional and friendly and a lady who was easily accessible. She is organised and direct and gave consideration to my thoughts and needs. A very easy and comfortable company to deal with which also extends to Cleo’s staff. I would be pleased to work with GBN again in the future.
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.
Thank you Great British Nannies for my wonderful nanny, going back to work and leaving my little one after 9 months was so difficult but the whole experience with your agency made it all so much easier for me and baby. GBN were flexible with my needs, very responsive reasonably priced and highly professional throughout.
All round excellent nanny agency!
I am so grateful to Cleo and the team. They were so helpful and professional. I would highly recommend them.
Having decided I was interested in pursuing a position as a governess, I began the daunting process of trying to find a job. Trawling the internet and reading job advertisements, I faced a number of problems. Were the websites legitimate? If I did make contact with an agency I was met with the usual generic emails or would conduct a Skype interview only to receive no feedback at all! It was frustrating to say the least. That is why I was so pleased when Great British Nannies got in touch with me. From the very first email their service has been simultaneously professional and reassuringly friendly.
While moving to a new country for an amazing job is undoubtedly an exciting opportunity, it can also be a stressful one. The staff at Great British Nannies really seem to appreciate this and their attention to detail has made the whole recruitment process easy. From interview preparation to updating you on the progress of your job hunt, Great British Nannies has helped every step of the way. No question or worry has been too small, and Cleo has been on hand to help at all times.
To anyone considering a governess or nanny position, I cannot recommend Cleo and her team highly enough!
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.
Very dedicated team and super professional service. Found an excellent nanny through their hard work.
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 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.
Cleo was absolutely incredible. She found us an amazing nanny who fit our criteria exactly! Her follow up was great and the effort made from Great British Nannies will ensure I use this agency in the future and I definitely recommend it to anyone wanting excellent personal service! Thank you!
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.
Great British Nannies are an incredible team who care very much about their staff and work well to find the perfect fit between nannies and families. I would recommend them to anyone.
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!
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.
