About Hessel Group

Hessel Group has been providing quality care, support and education to South Australians since 1998.

Our mission is to help you find a sustainable solution for your needs. We innovate through collaboration with your team, the community and the government to help you reach your goals. Whether you want care and support services, a new career in the social care industry, or you'd like to take on a trainee for your business - we can help.

The Hessel Difference

The Hessel difference is simple - we care. We care about you.

We care about the community in which we exist and most importantly, we care to make a difference. This philosophy has been at the heart of our organisation from the beginning, and it remains our core value today.

From the moment you contact us, we will take the time to get to know you. We believe this is the only way to truly understand your needs and tailor solutions for you. We keep in touch, whether you are one of our care and support clients or one of our students, to make sure we're doing everything we can for you. We are always here for you.

We are not an agency. All of our care & support workers, babysitters and nannies are our employees. We believe that making Hessel Group a great place to work will result in better care for our clients.

Our Journey

Our journey began in 1998 when Tanya Cole, our CEO and Founder, started a nanny agency out of frustration with the lack of quality child care options at home for her two young children. She wanted to help parents by simplifying the process of finding a nanny, hence NannySA was born.

As Tanya helped more families, she began to uncover more needs and later expanded services to support as many South Australian families as possible. With the expansion came a name and branding change. Today, we are known as Hessel Group and offer a range of services including training, childcare, and allied health support.

With a team of over 300 staff, iincluding nannies, babysitters, educators, trainers, disability support workers and allied health professionals, Tanya continues to steer the organisation. In 2022 in readiness for further expansion, Brad Seaman joined Hessel Group as the Chief Strategy Officer and Director. Together, Tanya oversees Operations while Brad oversees Corporate Services.
