Our client is a busy and lively family and require a qualified nanny with a sunny disposition. They have one daughter, aged two, and another child due at the end of the summer. The family also have a very friendly cocker spaniel.
From September, their daughter will begin part-time at a wonderful local nursery. She enjoys exploring the outdoors, swimming, arts and crafts, and baking, and our client need a nanny with lots of energy who can enthusiastically join in on all of these hobbies in the afternoons and school holidays.
To begin with, care for their newborn will be on a shared care basis, but within a few months it will include sole charge care (mum will take a short period of maternity leave). Mum often works from home in a designated office space, so they need a nanny who is organised and can use her initiative.
Experience of caring for babies, including weaning and establishing healthy sleep routines, is essential, as is a love of working with toddlers and creative play. Excellent communication skills, including fluent English, are essential and a fondness for singing with children is highly desirable.
Ideally, they are looking for someone who will be prepared to occasionally travel on holiday with them (all expenses paid). There will also be occasional babysitting in the evening, which will be paid in addition to the salary.
Hours: Up to 40 hours per week, Monday to Thursday, including school holidays
Location: West Hampstead, North London
Salary: DOE. The successful candidate must be happy to set up a Tax Free Childcare account (which is entirely free and they can help with)
