Dear Families and Candidates,
A big warm welcome from St Pancras Recruitment!
We specialise in placing experienced French-speaking nannies in London and all over the world.
Our mission is simple: We’re here to help you find your ideal French-speaking nanny based on your needs and criteria.
St Pancras Recruitment was founded by Marine Lienard to help families hire world class bilingual domestic staff. Marine was one of the first consultants to offer this fresh approach in London and began her work in 2006. Her innovative approach has gained her an international client base from backgrounds as diverse as the UK, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, Russia and of course, France.

She was very helpful in our initial meeting, explaining the different options to us and talking us through the nanny recruitment process. The candidates she suggested to us were all of a high quality, and although we did several interviews we actually ended up employing the first person she suggested. She then helped us clarify details around the contract, and was a great intermediary, especially as we were employing a French nanny with only conversational French ourselves. Ten months down the line everything has worked out fantastically; Marine was in contact in the early days to check that everything was going well, and has gone out of her way to give us extra help with other childcare questions as time has gone by. The experience was very personalised, and I would highly recommend the services of St Pancras Recruitment." - Lucy, pregnant mother with one child, Finchley Road.
