Do Nannies have the opportunity to travel?

Yes, Belgrave Agency offers positions abroad and would have families that may require the Nanny to travel with them during the year. If you have travel interests or would be interested in living abroad, please contact us. If the Nanny is invited to travel with the family on holiday this would be a work holiday and does not affect the Nanny’s annual leave entitlements.

If a Nanny experiences some difficulties during their placement what can they do?

We are happy to advise Nannies who contact our agency to talk about their problem. In most cases any problem can be resolved with a little communication.

Do Nannies need a full driving licence for job opportunities?

It is a big advantage to hold a full driving licence as many families do require their Nannies to drive the children to and from school but if you do not hold a full licence or are in the process of gaining one please contact us anyway and we will try to find a suitable family for you.
