Live In Nanny wanted in Mortlake/East Sheen, SW London. Starting mid-end of January 2020 for long term commitment.
Hours are: 7.15am to 6.30pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (sole charge).
The fourth day (ideally Monday) will involve ad hoc hours (often none at all) as I will be around.
Salary: circa £320 net per week
Nanny to start at 7.15am, gives breakfast to kids, gets them dressed and takes eldest son (5) to school for the day. Daughter (3) goes to nursery each morning, which gives you time to do the child related household chores as listed below. Then Nanny picks up daughter and often does any activity such as visiting a playground, library, organising a playdate. Then pick up son from school, take the children home for supper and any reading/homework plus get bathed and ready for bed. Parents take over to put the children to bed.
Light household tasks: keeps the house tidy - wiping surfaces, unloading/loading dishwasher, tidying toys at the end of the day, children's laundry (no ironing).
They have a weekly cleaner for 5 hours who also does ironing so no requirement for cleaning but keeping things tidy is important.
Food wise, Mum keeps the freezer stocked with some children's food but appreciated if a Nanny can make the odd thing and think of and prepare healthy meals for the children. The Nanny will be happy to run the odd errand eg going to post office, visiting super market etc during the nursery hours.
Someone who is flexible and can babysit - with advanced warning- would be ideal. Please note in the school holidays, if we are not on holiday both children are home full time, so you must be confident and happy to entertain them both for the holiday time.
Candidate must have good references, good English and a clean driving licence appreciated (not essential, but very desired). We would be happy to look at junior candidates who meet our criteria who have worked with children previously.
We are looking for a loving, caring and enthusiastic nanny to look after our children. Someone who wants to become a part of the family and get involved in the children's lives.
We have had a very positive experience with our current nanny who has been with us for 18 months but is leaving to go back to New Zealand. She is happy to speak to candidates to give them a feel for the family and the role.
