Hello, I am Helen Mussen.
I set up Happy Families Nannies in 2016 to serve families and nannies across North West London, Hertfordshire, South Buckinghamshire and Middlesex. I am a mother of three young children and, until early 2016, I had a 15 year career in Management Consultancy. Thus, I am very familiar with the challenges facing working and non-working families as they juggle children, jobs, household management and even trying to find a small amount of time for yourselves!
Having employed nannies myself, I understand the needs of both nannies and families. I am able to provide advice to families on the implications of being a small-scale employer of a nanny, including an overview of the financial and legal considerations that employing nannies involves. For nannies, I provide constructive and practical advice on career planning, CV writing, interview skills, and helping to choose the right family environment in which to work.
I manage the areas of Hertfordshire, South Bucks and Middlesex.
Hello, I am Jessie Dyer.
I have over 17 years’ childcare experience working both as a nanny myself and within teaching. Prior to this I worked as a senior account manager in the photographic and theatre industries.
I’m a mother of two children, and really understand the challenges involved in balancing work and home life. I am passionate about the welfare of children and will work hard to find a perfect nanny for your family and the perfect family for the nannies on my books I’m friendly and approachable, and love meeting all my clients in person, wherever possible, so that I can ensure that I am able to really understand your childcare needs.
I manage the North London region of Happy Families, which covers the areas in and around Barnet, Mill Hill, Finchley, Totteridge, Hampstead and Highgate.
Hello, I am Steph Neale.
I have spent over 20 years working in the Executive Search industry and as a mother of two young children, can relate entirely to the endless struggles to achieve that elusive life/work balance via the right childcare route for you. I also have worked as a nanny myself, as well as babysitting for many years, including for newborns, so I absolutely understand the importance of finding the right person for your home and family.
My recruitment background gives me unique insight into assessing personality fits and my childcare experience means I am able to see matters from both perspectives. I am flexible and understanding and will work hard to find the outcome you are looking for.
I’m also a volunteer with the British Red Cross and help children with reading in our local school.
I manage the areas of Berkshire and Oxfordshire.
