History of Nannies of St James

Nannies of St James was formed in January 1994

All of us at Nannies of St James understand how crucial it is for a parent to feel relaxed about knowing their child has the best possible care, and we want parents to be able to feel secure in the knowledge that we have taken all the hard work out of finding the right nanny.
In the beginning Nannies of St James catered initially for overseas clients. In 2000 the Agency expanded to cater for the UK market as well and our consultancy has been growing ever since.
Since 1994 we have successfully placed staff with more than 1,000 families, many of those repeat placements.
And more often than not a new client will advise us that they have been recommended by a friend who has used us.
We are constantly recruiting new nannies, maternity nurses, governesses, male tutors, nanny/PAs, nanny/housekeepers. And all new “NSJ” candidates need to meet our strict registration process (see our Nannies section).

Our clients and nannies are important to us. We never take for granted that without clients and nannies we would not be trading, and we pride ourselves on good communication between agency, client and nanny.
We set high standards of excellence and work rigorously to achieve them.
The agency office staff work closely under the guidance of founder, Rosemary Newton, and because we do not work on commission, our priority is always to find the right person for a vacancy. To this end we strive to get the match right first time.
Our high number of repeat clients reinforces our success rate – provide a reliable, dependable service and a client will be loyal. We are still in communication with many of our first clients from 1994!
Large numbers of our candidates have been registered with us since they qualified too, and for many Nannies of St James is their only agency.

Our promise is to keep doing what we have been doing for the past 20 years: providing our clients with superior, first class service and quality staff; and being in the enviable position of being able to offer our candidates fantastic career opportunities. Times may have changed and technology may have advanced but the basic principles and requirements for exceptional, trustworthy, dynamic nannies has not.
