Why Find Work
With Us?

Excellent Rate Of Pay

Experienced Sennies make £15 - £20 per hour depending on their skill set, training and experience.

Some families are happy to help us train up less experienced or new Sennies which incur a lower hourly rate. This is on a case by case basis. 


Freedom To Be Creative

You will work directly with a family and be encouraged to use your initiative and creativity to find ways to help the child(ren) you work with, to thrive within society, reach their full potential and build upon their independence.

Supportive Community

SENNIES is run by experienced SEN Nannies and advocates. We created Sennies as a fair, supportive solution to SEN childcare for both families and our Super Sennies. At SENNIES we are here to support you throughout your placement and we aim to create a community of Sennies who can support each other.

Training opportunities

The best child carers are always looking to further their skill set and knowledge, however finding the right SEN course, at a fair price, can be difficult without recommendation. 

SENNIES have Partnered with SEN specialist

Vicky Brewer who provides both group and bespoke  training for our Sennies community at a reduced rate! You will receive an official SENNIES certificate following training.

Create your SENNIE Profile

Your SENNIE PROFILE highlights your unique experiences, interests and qualifications. 


In most cases, it is the only document passed directly to our clients (your potential employer) to help land you an interview for your dream job.


Our Sennie Profiles allow us to be the perfect matchmakers!



We will first conduct a telephone interview to discuss your skills and experience in more detail. If successful we will work together to determine a convenient time to meet in person or via video chat to see if you have the right characteristics to be a Super Sennie.

We look forward to hearing about your specific experience that makes you stand out!

You will also be required to sign of SENNIES code of conduct.

Get placed with
your perfect family!

Let the matchmaking begin!

We will send your SENNIE PROFILE to the families you are interested in, as long as you meet the requirements. If you successfully gain an interview, we will help arrange this at a suitable time for both you and the family. 

Families are allowed to request a trial for a maximum of 2 day. All trials are paid at £10 per hour.

Once an offer of employment is made, you will sign a contract and officially become employed by the family.


SENNIES is an introductory agency only, we do not employ anyone, however we will offer ongoing support throughout your Sennies placement!

SEN Experience 

See What Our Sennies Say

"I have worked as a SEN Nanny for 10 years and always found roles myself as felt that all agencies cared about was the commission attached!

Then I found SENNIES and I was so happy to see that it was run but other professional SEN Nannies!

Georgia and Elinor generally care about finding you the right family, do not push you into the wrong roles just to fill placements and went above and beyond to ensure my skills and experience were matched to the right family. Thank you Sennies!"
