Meet the My Family Care teams
Our different teams ensure we deliver the best service to our clients and their employeesMeet some of our key people below and in the left menu
Ben Black, Director
As the father of twins, Ben knows all about the pressures of balancing work and family life.
Ben began his career working as a City lawyer. In 2000, he and his brother Ollie bought Tinies Childcare, which went on to become the biggest nanny agency in the UK.
In 2005 they founded My Family Care - with the unique proposition of offering clients a complete family friendly employee benefits package.
Ben continues to work with Tinies and is also a non-executive director at AnyJunk, the UK's largest rubbish clearance company.
A French wife, 3 young children and the occasional marathon keep Ben busy in his spare time.
Oliver Black, Director
Ollie is also the proud father of twins and a young daughter. So the brothers are even in the number of children stakes - for now at least.
Ollie began his career at Procter & Gamble as a brand manager. He saw the positive impact that having good childcare made to the people working in the business, but also how difficult it was for parents to arrange good, local childcare.
Convinced that childcare in the UK was about to go through massive change, he built up Tinies along with Ben & friend Amanda. Less involved now with the Tinies branch network, Ollie focuses on our On-Site Childcare service - the setup and management of creches, holiday clubs and nurseries. Living close to our head office, he'll often be in far too early, most likely after an early morning run.
Amanda Coxen, Director
Amanda started life as a solicitor in the City where she saw many colleagues struggling with childcare and work and decided that she wanted to do something about that.
Amanda joined Ben and Ollie in 2000 and together they set out to create a company that could provide professional childcare recruitment services to parents.
Amanda continues to look after the Tinies nanny agency network, splitting her time between her home and two children in Eastbourne and our head office in London.
Angela Stalker, Head of Business Development
Angela has worked within the corporate sales world for most her career, within large organisations such as Hertz and British Midland.
When it was necessary to combine work with her three children, Angela left the corporate world to manage three Tinies Childcare nanny agencies - giving her a flexible working option!
She then became involved in the merging services of My Family Care. Her experience and understanding of the 'juggling act' of the full time working mum allows her to translate the importance of supporting services to potential clients. If she gets any spare time Angela loves to travel and spend time with her family.
Venetia Leigh, Operations Director
Venetia was part of the original development team behind Emergency Childcare.
She has a background in e-commerce and PR, helping develop one of the UK's best dating sites.
Venetia has seen the company's rapid growth first hand and accepted the Telegraph Trailblazers award with Ben in June 2007.
Venetia now works as our Operations Director, ensuring the service delivered is of the highest standard.
Tamara Sangvhi, Head of Marketing
Tamara understands the multifaceted challenges of being a working parent from both her personal experience and working with companies whose core markets are families and parents. With over 20 years' experience in brand and product marketing, Tamara has spent most of her career working for large organisations, most recently Mothercare and The Walt Disney Company.

Justin Jeffries, Web Manager
