Fulham Nannies is a nanny recruitment agency for families and childcare professionals in South West London, West London, and surrounding areas. Independently owned and operated by Moira Walsh, so our customers get the highest quality and most attentive service.
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.
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.
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.
Whether you're considering a private maternity nurse, a one-time emergency nanny, a nanny to travel with you, or a full-time daily nanny, we'll use our wealth of experience and insight to introduce you to the best childcare professionals for your unique situation and needs.
If you're a nanny or maternity nurse looking for work in South West London or West London we’d love to help you.
We're always looking for talented childcare professionals to represent us. Let us help you find your next nanny job or maternity nurse assignment. Register with us today!
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.
These principles aim to ensure members provide their customers with an excellent recruitment experience:
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.
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
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 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.
If the situation arises and you are looking for help, Brave The Rage offer parents support, advice, counselling and consultancy with personalised action plans, bespoke resource packs and solution focused tools and techniques they need.Discover more
Here we offer some ideas for interview questions which you can ask when you're at the selection phase of hiring a nanny to work for your family.
Remember by asking open-ended questions - beginning with how, what or why, it will encourage the candidate to reveal more about themselves and should help you with seeing their suitability for your job.
