Meet North West Childcare Team

Julia Harris

Mother of two, Julia Harris, set up North West Childcare in 1999 when she was disappointed with the quality of agency she encountered in her own search for a Nanny for her sons.

Julia is a passionate advocate for families’ rights to quality and flexible childcare and is currently campaigning for the introduction of regulation of all Nanny agencies in England.

She has advised Granada Media on a Coronation Street storyline involving Nannies and her expert views on childcare have featured in the national press.

As Julia explains, she has found herself in a similar situation to most of her client families and instinctively knows the best housekeeping or childcare solution to recommend: “As a mother myself, I know exactly what I’d want for my own children and my own house – and I instinctively apply those same rules for my clients.”

The success of her company, and ongoing contact with clients families, led to the identification of another gap in the domestic workers’ market – quality housekeeping and household management professionals. As a result of increased demand for this service, The Housekeeper Company was ‘born’ in 2004.

Jayne Maxwell

For many of our clients, customer services specialist Jayne Maxwell is the first point of contact.

Her friendly and approachable manner inspires confidence in prospective clients and, as our office manager, Jayne’s efficiency, attention to detail and administrative skills are second to none.

Whatever the query, Jayne is on hand to take time to listen. She’s also a mother and believes that her experience as a parent helps her to relate to the needs of clients.

Joan McPhee

Client liaison assistant, Joan McPhee, is an integral part of the Team and is on hand to assist with any questions or enquiries that may arise.

Her experience in customer service, administration and sales has proven a big help in her role within the business. Joan is a mother and grandmother and her cheery and outgoing personality make contacting the Company a pleasure.
