Overseas Nanny

KS Private Staff source and place candidates globally. Wherever in the world you are located we can assist you in your search for the best nannies and private household staff.

Nannies and Governesses looking to register with KS Private Staff overseas division must have a minimum 5 years childcare experience and recent verifiable references.

All of our candidates undergo a rigorous vetting procedure before they are registered with us, so you can rest assured that you will only be offered thoroughly checked candidates for your selection.


Live In Nanny

A live-in nanny will generally work between 10 and 12 hours per day 5 days per week. Some nannies can offer 24-hour cover for 5 or even 6 days at a higher salary. We can advise the best solution according to your needs. Baby-sitting can be included within the salary, normally 1 or 2 weekday evenings. Extra evenings or weekend babysitting should be agreed at interview and will generally be paid extra.

A live-in nanny will need to have her own bedroom provided and ideally her own bathroom, or shared with the children. Her food and any bills for the accommodation (excluding telephone) should also be included. Some nannies are offered self-contained accommodation and a nanny car – any extra perks such as these help to attract higher calibre nannies.

Daily Nanny

A fully vetted daily nanny from KS Private Staff will be qualified and/or experienced and can be full time or part time.  Daily nannies will come to your home and can work up to 10 or 11 hours per day (typically from 7.30am-6.30pm) depending on the role and circumstances. Their work will consist of childcare, school/nursery runs as appropriate, and nursery duties. Nursery duties are basically any shopping, cooking, cleaning or laundry that is directly associated with the children.

If any housekeeping is required, you should probably look for a Nanny/Housekeeper  (qualified nannies will only carry out nursery duties). Baby-sitting for daily nannies is usually charged separately unless agreed by prior arrangement. If the employers need the nanny to drive, then a car is provided for them to use. It is a nice perk to offer the car for use both on and off duty.
