Zara Diamond, former nanny and childcare expert, has become one of Harmony at Home’s latest franchisees, launching the Manchester branch in May 2022.

Growing up in Northern Ireland, Zara found a genuine love, care and passion for children and their well-being. Shortly after meeting her partner, she moved to Manchester. Zara has 11+ years’ experience in the Childcare and Education Industry, in Schools, Nurseries’, Senior Management roles to then being a Private Nanny. Zara has travelled with families internationally as well as offering specialized parent coaching.

Having known she always wanted to own her own business, as her love and passion for nannying grew, so did her desire to work for herself. It was at this point that the stars aligned and the opportunity to buy a Harmony at Home franchise came her way. Her own core values matched so well with the Harmony at Home brand values, ethics and expertise that she knew she had found the next step in her career.

Always a perfectionist in her work, Zara is detailed and organised, and uses her skills to ask the very best questions to ensure that she is always finding the exact candidate her clients are seeking, as well as the exact family that her candidates would be well matched with.

The Manchester recruitment agency franchise is one of the latest additions to the Harmony at Home portfolio, which was launched by entrepreneur and Norland nanny Frankie Gray in 2004. The agency provides a range of nanny and household staff recruitment services to parents across the entire county – care is taken to create a positive experience for both clients and candidates.

Of her journey so far, Zara comments, “The highlight of running my business so far has certainly been in making those perfect, long-term placements, the delight and gratitude from the families and candidates has been a truly magical experience to be a part of. Not to mention the rapport and relationships I’ve built with our families and candidates alike.”

Zara is dedicated and passionate about making the right match for both her clients and candidates, she is genuine in her approach and will not stop until she has found your perfect candidate and/or family.

Frankie Gray, Harmony at Home’s founder, adds “I am thrilled that Zara has joined Harmony at Home’s growing network. She brings with her a wealth of experience and has a genuine passion for making the perfect placement for your family. Zara’s core values are deeply aligned with Harmony at Home’s brand values and ethics, and I am certain she will deliver outstanding childcare and household staff placements throughout Manchester, all the while keeping her client’s and candidate’s best interests at heart. Zara has been a ray of sunshine since she began her journey with Harmony at Home and I am so excited to see where her journey takes her.”

Zara specialises in providing UHNW Households and busy families with long-term, high-calibre candidates. If you are looking for a Nanny or Household Staff, look no further, Zara will be delighted to assist you.

In her spare time, Zara loves to travel and go on adventures with her partner Gareth and their Siberian Husky Neo. She also enjoys experiencing other cultures, reading, writing, meditating, and studying Astrology. She is blessed to have the support of her loving family back in Northern Ireland and her wonderfully positive outlook on life alongside a true passion for making a difference in the lives of others, makes her a truly dedicated owner of the Manchester branch of Harmony at Home.
