A big career with small people
Norland Agency: working exclusively with Norlanders since 1892
Norland’s dedicated in-house Agency is as old as Norland itself, set up in parallel with the Norland Institute to place the first cohort of nannies into employment. There are not many professions which can offer guaranteed employment opportunities but, at Norland Agency, demand from families for qualified Norland graduates (‘Norlanders’) outstripped supply from day one and continues to do so today.
The life-long support for Norlanders is also something which has continued since the early days of Norland. In those days the ‘Norland Quarterly’ publication was used to seek and offer help and support. Emily Ward set up the ‘Quarterly’ to be a platform for nurses swapping news as well as sharing childcare advice, building on their own experiences as they travelled from nursery to nursery. Today’s Norlanders turn to the private Norlander Facebook group for peer support, can telephone or email Norland Agency or simply call in. Although the methods of communication have changed, the fact remains that once someone has graduated from Norland, they never lose their connection with it. Norlanders can always be sure of support and friendship, whenever and wherever they are in the world.
Norland Agency continues to work exclusively with Norland graduates to place them in positions all over the world, working as nannies and maternity practitioners. Once qualified, Norlanders have exclusive access to a list of clients who specifically want to employ a Norland Nanny through Norland Agency. Graduates can register for access to the secure online job list where they can search through a huge variety of positions. Those placed through Norland Agency are employed in positions where they are able to travel to exotic and exciting locations with the family, live abroad or work across the UK.
On these pages you will find examples of Norlanders who have gone on to be a nanny, maternity practitioner, nursery manager, teacher, lecturer and an early years ski instructor.
