Full Time, Live Out Nanny - Lovely Role - SW11

About this job

 A lovely family are looking for a live out nanny to start with them July/August 2019 (yet to be confirmed).

The family have two children aged 4 and 2. The family are based in SW11 5NT

A brief of the role is below.

  • Live out
  • Five days a week
  • Hours 7.30-18.00 (and slightly shorter on Mondays and Fridays)
  • George (4 in October) is at nursery five mornings a week, a five minute walk from our house. He will go to school in September 2020 (again, five minutes from our house).
  • Benji (2 in October) is not at nursery but will start next April at the same nursery as George (initially three mornings a week).
  • We are looking for a kind, thoughtful, practical, pragmatic and energetic nanny (many hours will be spent throwing/catching/kicking balls with the boys).
  • Someone who is strong on development, through games, fun making, books and constant talking wherever they are. 
  • Ability and desire to cook interesting and healthy meals for the boys, and bake/cook with them sometimes. However, it is appreciated that the main job is looking after the boys so we prepare a lot of their food in advance. Once Benji starts nursery we would be looking for someone who could spend some of the 3 hours free each morning in term time preparing food (lasagne, fish pie type things).
  • Look after the boys laundry, keep their room and toys tidy.
  • Take boys on jaunts to nearby parks and beyond – they both have a huge amount of energy to burn.
  • Be an extension of us as parents: we like to be able to treat our nannies as our equals, and they have a huge role in helping our boys’ development alongside us. Equally, make suggestions and take the initiative rather than waiting for our lead.
  • Be trustworthy (obviously) and, all-importantly, reliable when it comes to punctuality. We both have full-time jobs and need to be able to rely on our nanny.
  • Proxy parenting would be handy but very infrequent, and not a huge issue if not possible.
