Testimonials:

“Capable, competent and caring customer service from the perspective of a nanny. Thank you Mareena and Nordic Nannies!”

Virpi Kämäräinen, Nanny

 

“I am pleased with Nordic Nannies’ service. I always got a clear and quick answer to my questions. Communication was always decent and pleasant. I was regularly asked how I was doing, and I got the feeling that you really cared about me. You take each Au Pair as an individual and help in the best way you can.

It was good to receive lots of information about being an Au Pair. The information was very useful when you are a first time Au Pair. I am very happy that I chose your service.

At first it was difficult for me to find a family in Germany where I didn’t have to speak German. I don’t speak German at all. Then you found a German agency for me, and I got a family very quickly. I am pleased that you find solutions to problems or at least try to help.

I really can recommend Nordic Nannies to everyone who would like to go abroad as an Au Pair or Nanny!”

Pihla Frilander, Au Pair, Germany

 

“I got the first job I applied for through Nordic Nannies. They communicated with me actively during my application process. I got good information about the potential family, the country I was moving to, and all aspects of moving abroad. They also answered all my questions. I felt that the service was very friendly and personal. I am confident that I can contact Nordic Nannies if I ever need any advice or encounter problems during my employment. I trusted the recruiter, and that made me confident that I could move abroad and become a nanny at my age and therefore fulfil one of my dreams.

The family I work for has been exactly what was described to me by Nordic Nannies. I got to speak to the family’s former nanny during the interview process and I learnt that she enjoyed working for the family. The family and I work well together. I can warmly recommend Nordic Nannies to help you get a job abroad!”

Tuija Jussila, Nanny, Switzerland

 

“Nordic Nannies provided me a safe way to find my first Au Pair position. The service was very knowledgeable and I received thorough information about my future host family and other specifics of my journey. You can always contact Mareena of Nordic Nannies if you have any questions during your stay as an Au Pair.”

Johanna Syrén, Mother’s Help, United Kingdom

 

”Applying to work as an Au Pair through Nordic Nannies felt safe and secure due to help from their experts. I noticed how important this was especially after my Au Pair year as I had known very little about being an Au Pair when I applied. When you have people to support you, you will always have someone to turn to if things go wrong. My Au Pair year was a success – not easy, because the work has its own challenges, but I would not change it for the world! I was offered a lovely host family who treated me with respect, and nobody should settle for less when looking for a host family. It is great to have guidance about your rights as an Au Pair.” 

Marjo Hanhisalo, Au Pair, United Kingdom
