Become a Pumpkin's Nanny!

Welcome to Pumpkins!

Having been nannies ourselves we understand the demands of working as a nanny and the responsibility that comes with it.

We offer a friendly, personal and supportive approach to help you find your perfect new role. We are always at the other end of the phone for support and advice, even long after you start your role.

Please use the buttons below to register with us as a nanny or to check out our current vacancies. In addition, at the bottom of this page we've included some useful links that you may find helpful, which cover areas such as tax and insurance for nannies, and becoming Ofsted registered.

We try to make registering and finding a role as stress-free as possible. In order to register with us we need the following from you:

  • An up-to-date CV
  • A minimum of 3 years paid employment in childcare
  • A recent 12 hour paediatric first aid certificate
  • An enhanced DBS within 2 years or registered on the update service, or be willing to apply for one at registration
  • Contactable references

We do not charge a registration fee or a fee to process a DBS. The DBS company we work with charge a competitive rate of £54 directly.

What our Nannies say

Pumpkins have been absolutely excellent. As soon as I joined the agency, they proceeded with all the correct checks (DBS, first aid etc). Helped me along the way with phone calls, interviews and encouraged me also.  Found a placement, due to start soon. Very happy. Professional, kind, helpful and 100% would recommend them if you are a nanny or in childcare or if you are a family looking for the perfect nanny. Best agency I've been with, thanks!!

I joined Pumpkins only 3 weeks ago and have already secured myself a wonderful role! Claire and Jane are fabulous and worked with me from the start. They answer any questions I have in a click of a finger. I’m very happy with my choice in joining the agency! Most definitely recommend these guys to anyone seeking a nanny role!

Having been signed to a number of agencies, Pumpkins is in a league of its own! Claire and Jane are so on the ball and really take your needs into account and will find you the perfect nanny family. Any concerns and they are right on the end of the phone with their friendly yet highly professional advice. I will be recommending them to all futures nannies I come across!

I am a night maternity nurse and although I’ve not been registered with pumpkins for too long, so far they have been great! Claire and Jane have been very approachable, friendly and have placed me with a wonderful family. I’d definitely recommend them!
