Find a British Nanny for your Home with P&T Recruitment Agency

A British Nanny is the ‘Mary Poppins’ of nannies.  These women (and men!) are born and bred in Britain and will speak English as their first language.  British nannies have historical connections to many different countries and places, but P&T consider ‘British’ Nannies as those born in the United Kingdom.

We understand that some candidates are born outside of the UK and then become citizens of the UK at a later stage in their lives.  In fact many of our nannies do!  For those of entry to mid-level experience these would be considered either a Live in Nanny or Live out Nanny, and those of the very experienced category would fall into the Super Nanny category.  The majority of our British Nannies live in London, but also work around the world including the Middle East, Europe, China and the USA.

Clients who opt to hire a British Nanny do so with the knowledge that their child(ren) will be raised with a neutral accent and perfect English.  Sometimes they want the culture and customs of the UK at the forefront of the child(rens) education, and at other times prefer a British nanny for ease of travel to foreign countries.  Whatever the reasons might be, P&T have a range of incredible British Nannies on our books.

What are our clients saying about us?

  • Amanda I used Polo & Tweed to find me a housekeeper after I had my second child to help around the house so that I could concentrate on the new baby and my toddler. The service Polo & Tweed provided was excellent. I was able to interview several candidates before finding an excellent housekeeper. I was supported in finding someone who was the right fit for my situation. They also took the headache out of agreeing hours, contracts and pay. The housekeeper was excellent and just knew what needed to be done without being asked.

What you need to consider in a British nanny


Most of our British Nannies are career nannies. Meaning that they have worked as a Nanny since they have left school and consider this career as a full time career path. In turn they are both experienced and on higher salaries. On some occasion we get entry/mid level British Nannies joining our books, and we help place these British Nannies into families that have a slightly more tight budget. However even these families with a smaller budget offer excellent packages and incentives.


Many of our clients ask their full time nannies to travel with the family to help. Again this needs to be reflected in the salary/package offered, and typically clients will agree a ‘holiday rate’ to pay to the nanny if they are being asked to work 24/7 for a number of days in a row. Travel is easy with a British Nanny as they will hold a British passport and mean that it is easily travelled on to even less popular countries.


Accents place a large part of child(rens) development. British Nannies include English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish accents. We also have British born nannies who have spent a great deal of time in the USA, Australia or abroad and have accents.  These are all things to consider when hiring a British Nanny. Most of our clients are open to accents, but some specific a specific accent. RP or received pronunciation is considered the neutral accent in the United Kingdom.
