Nanny Recruitment & Maternity Care Agency
Helping busy families find & employ their perfect nanny
We specialise in the placement of nannies and postnatal carers with families that require flexible childcare and family support.
Modern families need modern childcare. We understand that traditional childcare isn’t suitable for most working families and that nannies can not only provide childcare but support for the entire family.
Our thorough nanny-finding & vetting process ensures that your nanny has the experience, training, personality and ethics that are important to you. Our service is the most comprehensive in the industry where safety and suitability are paramount.

Kind words from clients & nannies
Highly recommend Happy Nest. Fiona was absolutely brilliant, she spent lots of time with us to get to know us as a family and understand our requirements. She was so proactive during the search keeping us updated and undertook such a thorough candidate selection process. She really wanted us to find the perfect fit. By chance, we actually found our nanny directly but Fiona was genuinely happy for us and I would not hesitate to re-engage Happy Nest services if we need to recruit again.
Such a wonderful service, I had an emergency c-section so we needed a night nurse sorting urgently! Amazing service from the people at Happy Nest and our night nurse is also fantastic, all very lovely, qualified and professional people. Worth the money!
We had a great experience with Tess. She listened to our needs and was very understanding and positive right from the start, where other agencies felt they were unable to help. Tess quickly found someone to provide the cover we needed. We were extremely happy with her and the service Happy Nest were able to provide.
I have been a Nanny for Happy Nest for over 3 years now. I have always found them to be friendly and professional. They work well with both Families and Nannies to find the perfect working relationship between the two. They have always gone above and beyond any other agency I have worked with in the past. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they are always there to help when needed. They do far more than place Nannies with Families they offer a wide range of services. It is my opinion that Happy Nest is by far the best Nanny agency in the North West.
I have been a Nanny with Happy Nest for 2 years. Happy Nest have been supportive throughout my time of employment even in some more difficult times. I had some difficulties in my first role and I was supported by Fiona in finding a new more suitable family to provide childcare for. Any issues I’ve faced or support I’ve needed I’ve always felt comfortable to approach Fiona and she has had the ability to help me as much as she can. I’d highly recommend Happy Nest if you’re looking to pursue a career to become a nanny and would like the best support in finding a family suitable for you and beyond.
Fiona at Happy Nest is like the understanding friend who can solve your problems. She listened very carefully to what we needed and who might fit within our home and alongside us – we both work from home so personality fit is key – Fiona not only found us our current nanny but also our previous. It’s such a relief to work with an agency who completely understand the brief. Who are confident enough not to waste your time sending a ton of CVs and who in our case simply get it right. The icing on the cake is their payroll services who are personable and keep it simple. Happy Nest repeatedly gave us human, honest and understanding support and utterly delivered. I can’t rate them highly enough.
I am writing to thank Fiona for the quality of service provided and assisted me throughout the whole process of finding families and finding the correct job to suit me.
I appreciate dearly Fiona’s efficiency, customer service and consistent support whenever I have needed help with a query.
I am now very happy with where I work and have a fantastic job!
I couldn’t recommend Fiona and the team at Happy Nest highly enough. We needed to find a nanny for our toddler son at very short notice and, although the time was tight I felt that the quality of the candidates offered to us was not compromised. Fiona went above and beyond to help us and we will be forever grateful! The nanny who we employed was highly skilled and professional, and our son loved her and connected instantly. I felt that this was because Fiona had really listened to our specific concerns and needs and presented suitable candidates, not just whoever they had on their books. Then, as first time employers, their payroll team were fantastic at shepherding us through the red tape of payslips, pensions etc. All in all, we couldn’t have done it without them. And the next time we need a nanny they’ll be our first port of call.
Very helpful and responsive, even at short notice and outside of normal working hours.
Fiona and the team were fantastic and of the highest calibre as a nanny agency. They took the time to understand our situation and provide nannies that were not only qualified, but whose ethos and personality were aligned to our own. And…to top it off, when we were waiting for our permanent nanny to serve her notice period, Fiona found us the most incredible temporary nanny who not only cared for our little girl but who was able to get her on a feeding and sleeping routine. We are hugely satisfied with our experience and have already recommended Happy Nest to a friend. Five stars!
