I have been so far working in the Nanny industry in London for almost 2 years. I work for Little Ones and, among my tasks, I recruit for Spanish speaking Nannies.

During this time I have noticed an important increase in the demand for Spanish speaking Nannies by families living in this city. The Spanish language seems to be one of the most required by families when it comes to hire a nanny who will teach a second language to their children.

There are many factors to explain this increase, but the most important, I would say, would be the fact that Spanish is currently the second language in the world by the number of speakers. This is a very decisive factor - especially when parents sit down to think what professional future and opportunities they want their children to have - being bilingual in English and Spanish seems to be very beneficial and attractive.

Families also feel attracted not only by the language, but also by the warm and rich in cuisine culture Spanish speakers offer.

Spanish speaking nannies are well known for their loving care and for their cooking skills, and it seems very interesting not only embracing at home the language but also the culture.

Another factor for some families, maybe less important than the first two, is learning the language of your usual holidays destination. Lot of families based in the UK choose every year Spain  as their destination in summer and other periods of the year, due to its weather conditions and prices. This can be influenced by the crisis, prices are lower now in Spain. Some families even have a summer house/apartment in the country! So, having a nanny who can speak and teach your children the language spoken in your holidays destination can be very useful, not only for the children to be able to communicate when they go to visit places like Marbella, Mallorca, Tenerife, but also when the nanny accompanies the family in these trips.

Families also choose to bring the Spanish language to their homes due to the profiles these candidates usually show. It is not difficult to find qualified nannies - a lot of candidates from Spanish speaking countries have studies in Teaching, Psychology, etc.

They also come across as very flexible when it comes to help around the house. Spanish speaking nannies usually don't mind helping with the housekeeping of the family's house as usually this is required for this type of job in their original countries.

All these factors have made Spanish Nannies some of the most demanded by families in London. They speak the second most important language of the world, they have great cooking skills and are happy to help around the house; they can assist you when you travel, and many of them are qualified. Who wouldn't want to hire a nanny like this for their children and household?
