Hire an overseas nanny

Overseas nannies work all over the world; Signature Staff has clients based in Europe, Australia, America, Africa and the Middle East. 

A successful international nanny will be highly organised, able to source fun activities no matter where they are in the world, and always have a smile on their face no matter how jet-lagged. 

Overseas nanny duties may include arranging age appropriate activities and outings, overseeing homework and meal times, maintaining routines, providing feedback to parents. 

Amount of input into cooking and cleaning will be a function of the level of staffing in the household. 

Availability

These jobs can be on a 12 hour day basis, 24 hour day basis or rota basis – depending on what is needed. 

Salary expectations

An overseas nanny salary will vary from country to country, in Europe and Middle East an international nanny salary would normally start at a minimum of £52,000 gross per year. 

In the USA the starting salary can be higher that £52,000 gross per year.

Open What kind of visa does an employee need to work in the UK and overseas?
