  • Katherine was extremely efficient. I applied for a position on a job ads platform early morning on the 7th of Sep, she sent me an email and phoned me up a few hours later, interviews and trail day arranged all in fast speed, working in her out office hours. She was open and honest, a good patient listener, working not just for family’s interests but made sure both parties’ requirements met and happy. I got the job offer less than 2 weeks for a dream position l had been looking for. Great thanks to Katherine. I would recommend her to any families and my Nanny friends. Ruixia Tian

  • My partner and and I went out on a whim and emailed Katherine directly about any potential domestic couple jobs; and to be honest we didn’t expect a reply due to only being in the industry for such a short time. Katherine replied almost instantly! She booked in zoom meeting with us, got to know us on a personal level, and was considerate towards our needs for a future role. Within less than a couple of weeks, Katherine managed to secure us with a job!! Katherine did an incredible job matching both of our skills to the best job, and has offered us continuous support, help and guidance throughout the entire process. We couldn’t be more grateful and overjoyed! We highly recommend Katherine Shields! Once again, thank you so much 😊

“Katherine has assisted me in finding a Nanny. Initially the process seemed daunting, but Katherine spent so much time listening at the beginning of the process she was able to fully understand our needs and requirements. Her unique blend of professionalism, experience, and attention to detail with a real care for her clients has meant we have found the perfect match and the process of finding help within our home has been a really positive experience. Thank you Katherine.”

What we had thought was going to be difficult, with Katherine as our mediator was just so exciting. She understood us as a couple and matched us with the most lovely family. We remain so grateful for the ongoing support and cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking for work in this sector and to any prospective employers.”
