"We used Linda to find our last au-pair via her agency, Montrose Agency, and had a great experience. Linda spent time understanding exactly what our requirements were and giving us helpful and practical advice on how to find the right girl. When she put au-pairs forward they were always bang on brief. If I interviewed someone who wasn’t right Linda was absolutely lovely about it – much more keen to get the right fit than to get a match. "

Mrs S


"I have never had any reason to look elsewhere as the service I have received has been first class. Living on the Isle of Man the searches have never been easy but Linda keeps in regular contact and has found us some excellent girls. I regularly recommend the Montrose Agency to others."

Mrs K


"Montrose is a high-class outfit. Most agencies unleash on you the CVs of hundreds of thoroughly unsuitable applicants. Montrose offers a truly personal and professional service. Linda listens to your specification and filters the applicants accordingly. Only high-calibre candidates who fulfil the stated criteria are put forward. Proper arrangements are made for the arrival of the candidate and the 'after-care' includes identifying local language courses and putting the au pair in touch with other girls within the locality. Families and au pairs alike are in safe hands with Montrose. I cannot recommend the agency more highly."

Mrs B from Highgate


"I've dealt with montrose for years, wouldn't go anywhere else! lovely girls, fast, efficient, reliable service! thanks"

Mrs H


"I have used Montrose to provide us with an Aupair for the last thirteen years and over that long period of time we have had a wonderful succession of girls from differnet cultures and backgrounds which has added a different dimension and atmosphere to our home. The children have benefitted enormously having to learn from an early age how to communicate with someone other than Mum or Dad which has given them confidence and independence and of course more recently they have been able to help with homework on language and background to their country.

On the odd occasion when we have had a problem or issue to deal with I have found Montrose supportive, professional and have always responded quickly to our needs.

When looking for a girl Montrose know exactly the kind of home we have and the lifestyle too which they pass on so by the time I have a phone conversation the aupair already has some background information about us. As we are a family who work irregular hours Montrose always go out of their way to find us someone who is flexible and has an accomodating nature. "

Mrs M from London


"The girls at Montrose have asked for a short testimonial and it is with great pleasure I can say that my best girls have been from them.  The service is very personal and they care as much about their nannies as they do the families. Keep up the good work."

Mrs C from Hampstead

"I have always been delighted by the professional service I have received from Montrose.  I have had three excellent Australian nannies from them and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone seeking excellent live-in childcare."

Mrs P from S.W. London

"We have three children, the youngest of whom has special needs.  Montrose has found us two great nannies who have been wonderful with the children managing to balance the needs of all three.  Montrose is the only agency I would use."

Mrs J from Bricket Wood

"Montrose has always provided us with the best care and attention. We have recommended them to many of our friends.  We have always had really good au-pairs from them and they seem to match the girls very carefully to the families"
