Sarah Hennessey

Sarah Hennessey has been a professional nanny for the last 30 years. Her career as nanny, maternity nurse and home educator, focusing on helping her charges with English as a second language has been crucial in her experiences.

Aware of the ever changing role of a 'nanny' within the home, the introduction of O.F.S.T.E.D. and its implications, Health and Safety and Risk Assessment processes. She has first hand experiences of this monitoring.

Sarah has assisted on residential courses for teenage musicians and assumes the role of Matron, providing pastoral care for boarders away from their home environment. She has worked both in the U.K. and abroad, including Europe, Hong Kong and most unusually, The Sudan with high profile families.

Alongside her career she has brought up three children, the eldest of which is 26 years old and as a result, she has the added instincts of a mother. She understands how important it is to find the right child carer, to trust and rely on someone who is 'perfectly suited'.

Once you’ve decided on the type of childcare required i.e. nanny, maternity nurse, housekeeper please fill in parents registration form. When we have your information will review it and contact you to further discuss your specific requirements and complete your registration with Niche Nannies.

Filtering Candidates.

Being fully aware of the complex dynamics involved in forming a harmonious relationship between a nanny and the employer, we will then assess your needs and the setting in which the nanny will be working. We will filter candidates CV's so as to provide you with potential childcarers who we feel will best suit family.

Arranging Interviews.

Once you have selected candidates, we will arrange a convenient time for both parties to meet and go through the formal interview process. We require all candidates to bring all documents relating to qualifications, training certification achieved, references from relevant previous employers and a copy of their current CV.

Childcarer Selection.

After interviewing, once you feel comfortable with a particular candidate and you forward a job offer, we can help by providing a sample work agreement (contract), thus helping to make sure all key considerations have been addressed. Once the offer has been accepted by the nanny, she is directly employed by the family.
