High-profile Nanny

A Happy Nest high profile nanny provides a personal, confidential and professional service.

At Happy Nest, we hold our high profile nannies in high regard and to a high standard. These career-professional nannies are highly educated, with a minimum of 5 years of experience, and offer support to ‘high profile’ families. Families such as professional sportspeople, media personalities, celebrities, and well-known political and business figures.

High-profile nannies understand that these families have a lifestyle that requires a particular skill set, and dedication to the position. Typically these families are in the public eye and have extremely demanding careers themselves. Many travel frequently and require a team of staff to assist them with their daily lives. The high-profile nanny forms part of this team as they see to the needs of the child. In doing so, they provide love, care, attention, education, creativity, friendship, guidance, and personalised support.

Nannies that support a high profile family are usually employed on a full-time live-in basis and travels regularly with the family.

Happy Nest have years of experience placing nannies with high profile clients and understand that discretion and privacy is of the utmost importance. You can reach us on 0800 955 8868 or leave a message below.

A Happy Nest High-Profile Nanny

Above all else, a high profile nanny is both discreet, and discerning. They will act in the best interests of the child, and the family, at all times. And with the ability to take on an authoritative position as needed, to perform proxy-parent and managerial duties as they relate to the child.

  • University educated to a minimum bachelor or masters level. With a major in an area such as business, teaching, foreign affairs, languages, or similar
  • Highly experienced, with a minimum 5+ years in a sole-charge nanny position. As well as additional professional career experience in a complementary field
  • Educated on childhood development, with supporting academic certificates in areas such as (but not limited to) nutrition, sport science, ‘special needs’, languages, and alternative education
  • Extremely discreet, with an understanding of client relationships and the ability to perform their duties in the public eye whilst maintaining the family’s privacy
  • Well travelled, with a CV that boasts career experience on an international level
  • Dedicated to their employer at all times. With the utmost respect for professionalism and a keen willingness to go above and beyond, without fail, to meet the ongoing requirements and expectations of the position

If you would like your nanny to have certain attributes such as being Norland or Montessori trained, multi-lingual, self-defence trained or have advanced driver training, be a dual-passport holder, a certified swim instructor, or trained in domestic cookery, we can ensure those needs are met by your prospective nanny.
