About Moira

I began my professional career in childcare after the birth of my son over three decades ago, at which time I became fully aware of the challenges of balancing work and family, and the importance of stable childcare figures in our children’s lives.

Quality will always be at its heart

In 2007 I decided to set up a nanny recruitment service, which I named Fulham Nannies, to focus on delivering truly personalised services that larger agencies were simply not providing - where all our customers are valued as individuals, listened to and understood.

Swift Fly The Years!

I am still very much in love with my work and pleased that our story continues and our reputation for providing successful services to families and professionals continues to grow.

Childcare is one of those things in life that cannot be deferred and one of the most important investments for any family.

I love the challenge of working with parents to achieve successful hires - meeting their exact needs, and I'm always thrilled to know we help so many nannies find rewarding professional positions.

Standards matter

Fulham Nannies are members of The Association of Nanny Agencies (ANA), a not-for-profit trade association with nationally-recognised professional standards that were developed in consultation with individuals, organisations and providers from across the sector, and which define common expectations that accredited agencies must adhere to, so that you can choose an agency to meet your needs with confidence.

Parents justifiably demand a high standard of service, and nannies deserve the respect these standards provide.

For job seekers

We advise all childcare professionals to be careful when using web-based nanny agencies to find work. Always use a reputable agency service. If you're in any doubt you should register with an ANA approved agency.

ANA registered agenc agencies not only provide the best employment finding services, but they're guaranteed bona fide and monitored by ANA to ensure you're working with the very best.

Good quality service, advice & support

As a former childcare professional myself, I had registered with a number of recruitment agencies during my career, but I became increasingly dissatisfied with the often impersonal, conveyor-belt treatment by some of the larger nanny agencies in London toward their nannies and parents.

Having done the job myself, I decided to start my own local agency service, focussing exclusively on South West London and West London, and underpinned by that personal touch that the mass-market agencies weren't fulfilling

Why are we one of the best-liked agencies in South West London?

We've gained plenty of experience and success at sourcing and placing childcare professionals, and we stay open later than most other nanny agencies across the capital - making it easier for busy parents to get help with finding a nanny at their convenience.

We build long-standing partnerships

We support families and nannies right the way through the searching and hiring process with Ofsted registration, police checks, first-aid courses, privacy agreements and pretty much any nanny hire related matters.

Our service outstretches to ongoing support - so we're on hand beyond each placement for as long as required.

Why Should I Use A Nanny Agency

Some risks just aren't worth the worry when it comes to finding the care you can trust for your family. It may well be possible to find someone to work for your family entirely on your own - if you can commit the time to post your job and manage the responses, yes, you can achieve the end means. If you're a super busy parent and don't have the time to trawl through what can sometimes be a blizzard of unsuitable applicants, then you can engage a reputable nanny agency to help you instead. They'll do the hard work, give you peace of mind, and find professional nannies with the experience and interest who're actively looking for your type of vacancy.

It's free for families and nannies to register with us and use our agency services. Families are only charged an agency fee if they hire a nanny who we've introduced to them.

For a Permanent Engagement, there is a one-time agency fee of 10% of the equivalent gross annual salary of the nanny. For a Temporary Engagement or a Maternity Nurse, the agency fee is £30 per day for each day booked (minimum 4 hours per day) up to 3 days per Week; or £100 per week for bookings of 4 or more days per week. We only invoice you for an agency fee once a nanny accepts your job offer. If you don't find the right person to hire there's nothing to pay - no hidden commitments or obligations. See our Terms here for more information.

We're continually in touch with a wide network of applicants, candidates and professionals, we also have good nannies who find us through word-of-mouth recommendations. Additionally, we advertise on our website, social media, and through other trusted mediums, and regularly email our current jobs list to subscribed candidates.

We invite all applicants for an online registration interview with us, during which we look at original documents to verify their identity, right-to-work in the UK, enhanced criminal record certification, any professional registration or licence, and qualifications. We look for appropriate skills and experience as well as their levels of application, interest, and personality. Finally, we speak to ex-employers to confirm their employment history & references.

An Enhanced DBS check (DBS) in the UK is undertaken by the police and looks at the complete criminal history of an individual going back to childhood to establish clearance for people working with vulnerable adults and children. It's not compulsory for nannies to have a DBS, but is a standard requirement for the profession. Overseas applicants need to have valid certificates of good conduct from the relevant embassies of any country where they've lived for 12 months or more in the 5 years before the date of a nanny job application, while aged 18 or over.

If the nanny leaves your job within the first 8 weeks of a Permanent Engagement or within 2 days of a Temporary or Maternity Nurse Engagement, we will find you a replacement at no additional cost to you. Please read our Terms here for our full terms.

Yes. It's always a good idea for the family and nanny to arrange at least one trial day before committing to an engagement. We provide more information about the importance of trial day's here.

We provide our nanny services in Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea, Wandsworth, Westminster, Lambeth, Southwark, City of London, Islington, Merton, Richmond upon Thames, Kingston upon Thames, and Ealing.
