About Us

since 1994

The Northern Nanny and Housekeeping Agency was founded by Penny Ormerod who has worked as a private Nanny since 1994.  Her work has taken her all over the UK and overseas.  She has worked for several families over the years who have all given glowing personal and professional references.  Penny  has got personal experience working with professional families and also high profile families.  Privacy and discretion is paramount with every role.  It is  her experience, professional reputation and knowledge coupled with her passion for professionalism that gives Penny a solid understanding of the private staffing sector.

The Northern Nanny and Housekeeping Agency has a very strict policy when it comes to hiring a nanny.  Only the highest calibre of housekeepers and Nannies will be accepted. This is achieved after a successful interview at our office and then extensive checks of job history, references and certificates.

Testimonials

What our clients love about us

I am a single dad with two beautiful boys, now aged 6 and 8. I love them so much and NOTHINGin my life is more important to me than my boys.

I am also a businessman with my own business and over one hundred staff, which takes a lot of my time, on top of that, I am the Co-Chair of the school Governors, and am heavily involved in my boys school.

 What is critical to me, is that my sons are well looked after when I am at work, and in this respectI need help. Initially after my first son was born in 2012, I used only the national nanny agencies.

 I recently come across Penny Ormerod of the Northern Nanny agency. I only wish I had found Penny earlier, she is just what I had been looking for.  Attentive, available always, knowledgeable,with real empathy. Penny has been there for me from the first day we came into contact with each other  

 In business, what I look for, in essence, is an excellent service, and in Penny, I have found it, totally. With so many constraints on my time, it is critical that I have the support of an excellent nanny agency. I come across a lot of businesses in my work, and do not often give testimonials, but I have been bowled over by Penny’sprofessionalism. Nothing is too much trouble for her. She is always there for me when I need advice. I rate her very highly indeed. WITHOUT ANY HESITATION, I would recommend Penny to anyone wishing to employ a Nanny. Further, if you are a nanny looking for an agency to represent you, you need look no further in my opinion. Her access to the best nannies available is unrivalled and you will not find a better person to represent you.

The quality of candidates that Penny sent me to interview was outstanding. Every nanny was extremely professional, we are very happy with our final decision. Our children settled straight away and the bond that our nanny has with them is beautiful. Thankyou for everything Penny. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you and your agency. You thoroughly deserve the success you have

Choosing a nanny was a very daunting time for me as I had to go back to work very early, Penny came to my home, totally put me at ease and was extremely professional. Her skill at matching the perfect nanny to the right family is amazing!!!! Four years and two children later my nanny and I are still working together in a very happy home

I just wanted to say Thankyou for finding us our very own Mary Poppins. It is very easy to see that Penny works extremely hard on behalf of her nannies and the families, only the highest calibre of nannies came through my front door. Every nanny that we interviewed spoke so highly of Penny, too. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that Penny has got 20 years of nannying experience behind her or just that she is very intuitive but whatever it is she is amazing at her job!!!
