In the job listings below you will find a selection, but not all of the vacancies we have registered. Because we have been around a long time, many of our vacancies are for repeat clients who have used our services before, this is reassuring for a nanny to know they are going into a family recommended by a previous Kensington Nanny , and the families are therefore well known to the agency. Obviously some of the vacancies are for families who are using our services for the first time, but even they generally come recommended to us through word of mouth.This page contains a sample of our current vacancies. If you are interested in any of these positions, or would like details of other vacancies, please contact us.
