From our families
'I just wanted to tell you that I am highly impressed with your services!!!! I would not hesitate to recommend your agency to other mums. Thanks again, and commend you on the excellent job you do!' (KR- Sydney Mum)
'We have learned to rely on KiwiOz excellent screening process. As we have used your services for nannies over the time our 3 children have been growing up, you always listened carefully to the brief, and we could honestly be comfortable employing anyone you sent us.
This meant we could choose the ultimate fit for our household, and enjoyed nannies who stayed for long periods of time and became a core part of the running of the household. You back up support for any questions (e.g. overnight rates etc.) for both the girls and us, continues to be exemplary. I continue to recommend you to anyone looking for a nanny, as you offer quality in the nannies you offer, and in your on-going service and follow up. Thank you. Best regards' (SK- Auckland Mum)
'Thank you for organising both Cecelia and Hannah. They were both great and we all had a fabulous time in Sydney. I will certainly recommend you to all who might need.' (LS- Auckland Mum in Sydney)
'I used KiwiOz nannies as my primary agency to source my new nanny as I'd had such a great result 18 months previously when appointing a nanny for the first time. I've found Karen, my consultant for the second time, to be understanding, helpful, empathetic, and humourous as required! Correspondence has been timely, friendly and helpful, I've never felt coerced in to reviewing, interviewing or appointing a nanny. I definitely will, and do in fact, recommed KiwiOz nannies to friends and colleagues looking for childcare.' (LH- London Mum)
'The standard of candidates was very high and the service wonderful. I would absolutely recommend KiwiOz to both families and nannies.' (DH)
'I thought the quality of the candidates was appropriate and well matched to the opportunity that we were advertising. The standard of service we received from Nicky was excellent she was professional, knowledgeable, personable and approachable. Everything I could ask for from someone to guide me through my first experience of recruiting professional childcare support. I would recommend KiwiOz nannies highly and in fact have done so already. I am really grateful for all the help provided and hope that some of the recommendations I make are successful for your organisation. With thanks' (ED- London Mum)
''You have been an absolute pleasure to deal with and the calibre of the nannies you have sent through has been excellent." (VM)
'I found your service very good. The candidates were generally high quality, and you sent me a large number of candidates who corresponded to the specs that I had given you for the job. Generally your agency was very responsive. I would definitely recommend your agency to other families.' (JH)
"I stumbled across KiwiOz Nannies by chance when I was desperately looking for a live-in nanny to care for my two children, aged 10 and 13, while I was out of Auckland on business. I can't speak highly enough of the level of professionalism and service which KiwiOz Nannies provides. With no family in Auckland, I have since used KiwiOz nannies for temporary live-in care, casual babysitting and regular after-school care and highly recommend them. In all occasions, and with three different nannies, I have been completely confident that my children are not only well cared for, but that they are happy and supported. Thank you to everyone at KiwiOz nannies - you're brilliant!'(SW- Auckland Mum)
'I had a fantastic service from Nicki and would definitely recommend your agency to family and friends. She always responded very quickly and seemed to really understand our needs. Both candidates we saw were of a high standard and were lovely girls.' (KM- London Mum)
'Your help has been v appreciated! You have given us the best help ever in 10 years of using agencies!! Very organised, passing on info, returning calls and finding great candidates! Many thanks again!' (GD)
'Many many thanks for your help as I was looking for a new nanny/teacher for William and Tim. It was great to call you and feel that someone was sympathetic, already knew my family and understood our situation, and was putting an immediate effort into helping me in the search for the right person. In the end that person came by another channel but the supportoffered by your service was very valuable during a few stressful weeks.I am extremely grateful knowing you are available to help if need be. Again, many thanks for your support, I strongly recommend your service to all my female working colleagues and will not hesitate to call again when I need more help!' (KF)
'The quality of your candidates was generally very good and the service was light years ahead of the other agency I was using (which was supposedly one of the best). You have been incredibly pro-active and with very good quality candidates. I would recommend KiwiOz to other families without any hesitation.' (KM)
'Paula was wonderful - thanks for getting her to babysit on Saturday. I have to say that we are very spoilt for choice as all the babysitters that you have sent to date have been faultless so I have to compliment you as you obviously recruit very well and very carefully!' (CW)
'KiwiOz Nannies understood our brief so implicitly, the first of their nannies we met was offered the job. This is not to say we aren't fussy! With our requirements being split across a sole care/nanny share scenario, in two different homes, our brief was not straight forward. Not only did Alana, our new nanny, meet our expectations, she was introduced to us within days of us registering our interest with KiwiOz. Geva's service was personal, thoughtful and swift. We are looking forward to welcoming Alana into our little girl Lucy's world. Thanks Ladies!.' (LJ)
'You were a pleasure to deal with- all of your staff were incredibly helpful, polite and friendly. You all got just the right balance between trying to move things forward and sensitivity to a new mums limited time and ability to take calls and action things! Youl also spent time really finding out my requirements and presenting me with good candidates. I hope not to deal with you again too soon(!) but I will recommend you to people. I have dealt with a few nanny agencies and you are by far the best in all aspects- your service, your staff and your nannies. Thanks again for all of the info on OFSTED, NI and insurance- really helpful. All the best.' (TW)
'While we didnt end up with a KiwiOz nanny, Geva did a great job. She understood quickly what we were after, and the candidates she forwarded to us were exactly what we were after. I would very highly recommend Geva.' (CS, Auckland)
'The standard was great, Sally was v helpful, very understanding, easy to talk to, very organised and quick to call back etc...and found me a job i love! I would definately recommend KiwiOZ! Thank you!' (AA)
'I would say the service you have provided over the past day has been fantastic and just what I needed. Very impressive! Thank you so much!' (SN)
'Your candidates were of very good quality, and you always only forwarded candidates that met our requirements. The service was excellent, always very responsive to phone calls and available if I needed to discuss anything. I would absolutely recommend you and have already done so to a number of my friends. We were extremely pleased with KiwiOz. Our job was not the easiest to fill but the consultants always made us feel like they were working 100% to get us a candidate.' (CW)
'Your service was unbelievably good - we were sent the CV of the person we eventually hired on the same day I called the agency. Geva was also friendly, efficient and interested - she creates the impression of really caring about placing the right person in the right family. I have already been recommending you! And will continue to do so. I honestly could not imagine how you could do a better job.' (EL)
'I was thrilled with how easy you made the whole process. Quite a daunting task finding a nanny for the first time, and one you made totally painless and straightforward. The quailty of the candidates was excellent and Jasper loved them all! I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your services (and do!).' (KO)

'Hi Amber...Thanks so much for your great work, professional approach and the speed at which you turned this job over has been noted. Will be recommending kiwioz to friends.' (AA)
'As I mentioned on the phone the other day I just wanted to let you know what great service we feel you have offered us on our recent search. In direct comparison all of the other nanny agencies have been very weak and unhelpful. Well done and I hope Lilly works out for us ! Many thanks,' (SW)
'I would like to thank you for all of your help, you have been brilliant and your service excellent- the other agencies I have worked with are not a patch on your attitude.' (JT)
‘Thank you so much for your excellent work in finding us Deborah. We greatly appreciate the effort you put into securing us a nanny in time for the start of the school year. I know that getting the right person for a part time post is not easy and it was great to know you had a lot of good people on your books for us to meet. Best wishes for the future of your business.

I also wanted to thank you for finding Sarah for us. She has been a truly fantastic nanny and has done a great job and I just wish I needed a new nanny. I would strongly recommend her and she settled in so quickly so would be ideal for any of your other clients who needed someone to hit the ground running in a temp role and I am sure they would be as pleased with you as I am for finding someone like Sarah! (KP)
'I just wanted to say thank you ever so much for your support and assistance. I was only on your books for 1 week and went for two interviews and got the job. A fantastic result.Emma said that she liked all the girls that you put forward. She interviewed 25 people and was with 6 agencies. Well done to KiwiOz.' (LS)

From our nannies
I have never sent anything to say how wonderful someone is but thought that for all that Karen did for me she deserved a good pat on the back!
