Hello! My name is Mareena Nissi and I am the owner and founder of Nordic Nannies. I started the agency in 2007 to enable Finnish child carers to find jobs abroad. Of course, we accept candidates from other nationalities, too.
Having worked over 15 years as Au Pair and Nanny in five different countries, I have the knowledge to help other people with the complexities of living and working in another country and culture (and in someone else’s home!). As I have helped hundreds of families from different countries and with unique requirements to their childcare needs, I have become an expert in choosing the right match for each family. My two business degrees are, naturally, useful in the recruitment process as well as in the daily running of the business.
In 2008, we acquired Scanaupairs, an au pair agency that had been running since 1986 in the U.K. Most of our positions are in the U.K. but we have placed live-in child carers in countries such as Sweden, Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Ireland, Spain, Italy, and to Finnish families in India and Zambia, for example.
Whether you are a family looking for live-in childcare or a job seeker looking for a live-in position, I will offer you a personal yet professional service that is tailored to your needs!
