Are you a nanny or governess (with an EU passport) who is curious about working as an international nanny Dubai?
Nannies Incorporated is often approached by Irish and British nannies or governesses (or other EU passport holders) interested in taking their career to the next level. We are often asked “What it is like to work in the Middle East?” or ‘How much does a nanny earn in the UAE?’ and ‘What are the duties of a British nanny in the UAE?’, ‘What is it like to work within a team of household staff?”
Our positions in the Middle East will provide you with better career opportunities – particularly the potential for more hours, greater job security and better pay. You can expect to earn around £40,000 - £52,000 tax free per year +/- (experience dependent). Salaries tend to be tax-free and you can also get benefits such as visa, insurance and housing and 4-5 weeks annual leave.
Nannies Incorporated has been placing experienced nannies and governesses, like yourself, in the UAE for the past 30 years. Rest assured that all our clients come via friends of friends who have used our services or are repeat clients. This means that we have a network of nannies already based out in the UAE.
We spoke to an international nanny whom we have recently placed in the UAE to find out what their tips are for those considering making the move.
Try and speak to others who have already worked there.
Think about the cultural differences and in particular remember to dress respectfully.
Summer can be very hot although many families travel extensively during these months.
Think about how you would deal with any homesickness, but remember there are quite a few native English speaking nannies already out there and keen to socialise in your free time / on your day off.
Always go through a top agency like Nannies Incorporated who will be able to help throughout your placement.

We are proud to have taken part in a documentary called ‘Nanny Culture’. You can check it out to see what goes on behind closed doors – at both our nanny agency, Nannies Incorporated, and at a genuine Emirati household, as ‘Nanny Culture’ offers a rare insight into their family life.
