British American Household Staffing
British American Household Staffing
"This is a wonderful agency!!I have a seven-year-old daughter and the team at BAHS has helped me with different nannies for the different stages of her development and, tutors and occasional staffing needs. Once you are part of the BAHS family they will truly work with you to support your family and get you the best possible staff - and always make you feel understood and with respect for your privacy."
"I recently utilized this agency to help me find a nanny for my six year old son. I can't say enough good things about the quality of the service at BAHS. They really listened to my needs, and only sent me candidates who met my criteria and who were really interested in working with my family. The agency's responsiveness, attention to detail and ability to be discrete was top notch. While I hope our current nanny stays with us as long as we need, I would use this agency again if I ever have additional staffing needs."

"My experience as a former nanny candidate of British American Household Staffing was extremely positive".
Ashley Mundt, worked very closely with me throughout the entire placement process. She was patient, informative, competent, thorough and spent an inordinate amount of time finding me the perfect placement.
Ashley worked tirelessly, even after hours and on weekends with both the client and me to ensure proper placement. Not only was I provided with endless support each step of the way, Ashley also took the time to educate me on the finer points of being an amazing nanny. Once I was placed in my position, Ashley took the time to follow up with me a number of times to ensure all was going well and to answer any queries of mine.
I would not hesitate to highly recommend not only British American Household Staffing but Ashley Mundt herself. Both clients and nanny candidates will be pleased with the results."

“I cannot recommend this agency enough. I am a British Nanny with twenty seven years of experience so I have encountered many agencies both here and London during my working life. It did take time for me to find the right position as I am choosy, but each time I decided a job wasn't right for me they didn't criticize my reasoning but just persevered in finding what would eventually be the perfect fit for me.”
"Recently I had my second job placement with BAHS as a private Chef. Based on my experience as a private Chef this is by far the best agency both for candidates and the clients! The only person I have ever met is Anita Rogers who has a lovely personality and is a wonderful professional! I will definitely recommend anybody that is qualified for the jobs they are posting to apply without any hesitation. If you are an employer and you are looking for the right people for your home this is the place that is going to find them for you definitely."
“Their honest and respectful approach was such a positive experience that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!”
"Fantastic service - scrupulously honest, very discreet, and a pleasure to work with. British American has staffed my entire home and I couldn't be happier. Having good help makes such a difference, and all my staff are excellent workers, have a great work ethic, and get along with each other too.
Anita and her recruiters are incredibly responsive, professional, kind and attentive - they are literally available 24/7. For instance, I found out our former nanny (not from BAHS) had been stealing from us on a Sunday evening, I called Anita, and she had interviews lined up for me on Monday morning. I found our new nanny that week, and she has been with us ever since (and is far better than our former one!).
After having used several of the other top agencies in the City, it is a breath of fresh air to feel that British American cares who they send you and aren't just sending you random people to get their fee as quickly as possible. I am so happy with British American that I recommend them to all my friends - they are the top in household staffing!."
“What can you say about BAHS? It is a unique agency because it genuinely cares about people looking for staff and for the people looking for a new position.”

“If you are looking for excellent and professional staffing in your home, British American Household Staffing is the way to go. They are very prompt, courteous and friendly with great respect for prospective clients as well as candidates.”

"I live on the opposite side of the nation and would normally not reach out so far for a placement service but every nanny I asked who seemingly loved their position with a long-term family had said they met through BAHS. Kind of like a hair stylist, after hearing their name though multiple people with amazing locks, you just have to give them a try.
Here is what I love about BAHS: They have a great reputation and they attract and attain the right clientele. They are both busy enough that they have new positions popping up frequently and also have a large enough staff that can accommodate your individual needs.
Here is what I love about Ashley: 1. She does not try to fit a square peg in a round hole. She logically assesses the family's needs and the nanny's needs and makes harmonious matches. 2. She has experience on both ends. She has worked in private homes along with big businesses and seamlessly transitions back and forth. 3. She is excruciatingly detailed therefore preventing problems before they arise and has solutions should anything come up.
My experience: I had met two family's through BAHS; both in the location and salary range that I had requested. The first family was lovely, though after an initial trial I felt that while on paper we were a great match, the chemistry was simply not there and that it would likely not be a successful fit for the long haul. I sheepishly admitted this to Ashley and expected her to insist that I take the position... but she absolutely understood and we moved on without skipping a beat.
Upon her meeting the second family, she knew this was where I belonged but again, did not push the envelope. She scheduled other qualified candidates on interviews with the family and allowed everything to pan out organically (and ethically). And boy was she right! The needs of the family come so natural to me; from the parenting style and the comfort level to the free-range child.
More about Ashley: Despite this being a "done deal" -- she continues to check-in regularly and is an absolute dream. We have discussed parenting-styles along with sleep training and other child-related topics and this lady really knows her stuff. She has sent me articles that are helpful and backed by studies that are relevant to the topics we have discussed. For the first time in two years, I finally feel like I am where I truly belong and I am so thrilled to have had this wonderful experience".
“I enjoyed my experience with this staffing agency. Everyone was kind, courteous, and really took pride in the recruitment process, from the initial application to meeting clients on interviews, BAHS worked diligently to help me find legitimate work with a great employer.”

“I have tried other agencies in NYC (some presented as very 'prestigious') but I have always been disappointed. If you have the experience and education to work for one of their great clients, I highly recommend!”

“Everyone I met that works for the agency was professional and made my job search easy. The office is gorgeous and they really listen to what you’re looking for and won't waste your time with jobs that don't meet your criteria. They tried to get to know me, my personality and my approach to childcare so they could find families that would be a good fit beyond just surface level qualifications.”

"As a trained British nanny with many years experience in the business, I am happy to say Anita definitely runs her agency similar to the good old fashioned agencies in London. I spent 9 months looking for the right position for me, so that I would be there long term and both the client, the children and myself would be happy. Why Anita proved to be the best fit was because she takes time to hear what the nannies are looking for in a position and also listens to the parents desires and matches everyone as closely as possible. I enjoyed meeting all the families I went to through her agency and even had 2 contracts drawn up, then let down both the family and the agency. Anita was extremely patient and professional and understood the necessity of the right fit. The other extremely important factor is Anita is always reachable. I don't know how she does it all. All the other girls in the office were fun, warm, friendly and explained in detail their jobs. I do know that this kind of service is so important and I applaud her for her integrity, discretion and honesty. I highly recommend families and nannies to her all the time, and everyone comes away with the same thoughts I have about her."
“The staff was genuinely invested in my success; real care was taken to match me with the right family FOR ME. Entire process was pleasant and easy, and in the end they found me a dream job! What more could you want from a staffing agency?”

"I have been a professional nanny in New York for over 26 years, and in that time have seen many nanny agencies come and go. I can truly say that 'British American Household Staffing', and particularly Ashley Mundt, exemplify how a professional placement agency should be run.The level of service is second to none. What I found particularly refreshing, was not only the respect and understanding of exactly what a professional nanny can offer, but also the attention to detail when placing a nanny. I have always felt that BAHS is equally committed to finding the perfect fit for both the nanny, and the family. Unlike other agencies, there has always been follow up after not only job interviews, but after securing a position. I found Ashley to not only be extremely knowledgeable about child development, but also about understanding the needs of both childcare provider, and family.She is the ideal liaison between nanny/family. No question I had was ever too small, and I was always impressed with the speed with which I got a response. If you are embarking on a quest to find a wonderful nanny, who will fit in with your family, I cannot recommend BAHS highly enough."
“The biggest and most important difference to me between BAHS and other prominent staffing agencies is that they were invested in "matching" me to the right family. This may seem commonplace; however, from my experiences many of the prominent household staffing agencies are primarily interested in pleasing the families, not necessarily protecting or caring as much for the employee.”
"BAHS found me an Executive Protection/Chauffeur job with a HNW family and can not say anything bad about the employment agency or its employees. They were very professional and very attentive to the details of the interview process with both them and their client. I would strongly recommend them if your looking for a job."
"I enjoyed my experience with this staffing agency. Everyone was kind, courteous, and really took pride in the recruitment process, from the initial application to meeting clients on interviews, BAHS worked diligently to help me find legitimate work with a great employer. It's been a struggle in this market, but they have been there every step of the way. They matched me with every position that aligned with my experience. They gave me interviewing tips and literally analyzed similarities/differences between the clients and I. When you request a follow up, they have a 24 hour response window, keeping candidates informed about their interviews/status. They're a gem! Thank you soooo much BAHS :-D !!!!!"
"I"ve been a professional nanny for over 16 years, worked mostly out of los angeles and have been represented by main stream agencies. british american is a wonderful, dependable agency that i would recommend highly. i am a temporary nanny that was called in because a permanent nanny that british american found a family was not available for a month after the leaving date of their prior nanny. the permanent nanny would come and be with the kids when possible for a smooth transition. she was a wonderful nanny with all the qualities that were needed for both the parents and the children. i was happy to help them and they were very lucky to have found such a wonderful permanent nanny through british american :o)"
