“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.”

-CA, Client

 

“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.”

-KB, Career Nanny

 

“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.”

-MS, Chef

 

“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!”

“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!”

-SA, House Manager

 

“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.”

-KW, Career Nanny

 

“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?”

-JC, Nanny

 

“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.”

-KJL, Nanny/Housekeeper

 

“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.”

-WA, Chauffeur

 

“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!”

-RN, Nanny

 

“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 America.”

-CW, Nanny

 

“I have been a nanny and personal assistant for over 20+years, and have worked with many different agencies over the course of my career in Australia, the UK, and the US. British American Household Staffing is without a doubt the crème de la crème of agencies. Anita Rogers and her team of professional staff are super organized, efficient, and know how to match you with the best fit for a long term position. They have the best clients and are very knowledgeable and discreet. They have clients all over the world, and by far the best portfolio. If you are a professional in the domestic field of service, then this is the agency for you. You will only find top notch positions at BAHS. They vet both the client and the candidates extensively, which makes for a win-win on both ends.”

-TM, PA

 

“Thank God for this company! I needed a nanny for my newborn and 4 and 6 year old girls. I know I wanted someone special and wonderful but I was in a time crunch and I didn’t know where to look. This agency was a lifesaver. They asked me all of the right questions and completely guided me through the process seamlessly. They found me the loveliest, most wonderful, most qualified nanny who is an absolute perfect fit for me and my family! My girls are thrilled and I am so grateful to them. What a true gift for they have for creating a perfect fit for families as this is such an important position. I highly recommend!”

“I have worked with multiple agencies worldwide. This is by far the best I have ever worked with. I was very impressed with the stages of acceptance into the agency, where I was able to meet and have a deep conversation with the CEO. I have always been supported and advocated for by these wonderful women. I strongly encourage anyone with a true drive, passion, and commitment to making a difference in children’s lives through nannying to become part of this agency. I found my dream job, with my dream family in the dream location and pay I wanted. I have never felt like I was just an employee. I have been able to reach out for any questions or support, with a prompt answer. These women are amazing- and the agency speaks for itself with how many long-term placements they have.”

-SJ, Nanny

 

“I registered with Bahs 2021 and within a few months the agency found me an amazing position. Bahs demonstrated professionalism and always kept me abreast of what was happening. My consultant is Elizabeth and I found her to be on top of her game, always checking up on me, making sure everything was going well. She enabled the process to run smoothly and demonstrated great professionalism. Would highly recommend Nannies and Newborn Care Specialist.”

“I absolutely LOVE BAHS!! Everyone that works here is extremely professional and knows what they are doing. As a Care provider myself its been extremely important to me to find agencies that are top notch to help guide us through our careers. Elizabeth Burns specifically has been a angel of mine. She works representing BAHS and places other professionals like myself with only the best clients. They screen everyone and make sure we are all a perfect fit for each client and I truly appreciate the extra mile they are always willing to go. BAHS is my favorite agency to represent, and I only hope I contiune to have the honor to take their clients for years to come!”
