NOTTING HILL W2 + travel: Live-in OR Daily, s/charge, SEN Nanny
NOTTING HILL W2 + travel: September start (driver preferred)
New, international clients in W2 (Bayswater/Notting Hill area) are seeking a new full/part-time, Live-in OR Daily SEN Nanny to care for two, very happy little girls aged 6.5 & 5 years. To replace their current nanny who is leaving because her visa has expired. Our clients prefer a candidate with at least 3 years experience and excellent check-able references. Good English is essential.One of the little girls was recently diagnosed with Childhood Absence, so a Nanny with SEN experience is vital.
The daily routine would include pick ups from school (Hammersmith), allowing for time to organise, sort their things, prep dinner or activities etc. Take to activities and play or dates, help with reading and homework, dinner time (home cooked healthy meals), bath, story and bed time. General management of their schedule and things. The Housekeeper will cover laundry and ironing. The family have a driver in London who helps with pick ups and activities, but a driver would be preferable for travel.
The school holidays will be shared with the family's lovely weekend nanny, and will mainly be abroad. So travel is a must and working full time while away. Generally flexibility with random extra hours if the nanny is not full-time. Eg; a few mornings a month for when mother is travelling. Extra babysitting shared with the Housekeeper.
The two lovely girls are full of energy and very different! We are looking for someone very loving and nurturing but strong that can handle their strong personalities (sometimes competing for attention!). The family value discipline, manners and respect and an educationally focused candidate is IMPORTANT - the little one needs some help with her development, therefore someone with experience (see more detail below).
Someone who loves to read, is creative with activities and crafts. And active, particularly when travellling, a swimmer is required- the girls are sporty. Nanny must be able to cook healthy meals - diet is also important.
Driving in summers in Switzerland is a bonus and any additional language (particularly French/Spanish/Arabic)
High salary negotiable depending on experience. Start date is 6th September. There maybe be an option to fly the candidate over to Switzerland for interview/trial.
The family's more detailed requirements are below:
==The Nanny will ideally be required to work part-time, 5 days/week, (but totally negotiable), with occasional babysitting, but flexibility from the nanny is desirable.
==Nanny will be responsible for all standard nanny duties for the girls. Providing stimulating activities, reading to them, taking them to school/nursery/activities and on walks, their laundry, getting them ready, bath time etc. Ability to cook healthy unprocessed meals from scratch. (There is a housekeeper who can assist on occasion).
==They are an active family, so would like someone fit, creative, enthusiastic. Someone with a background in education would be ideal who would focus on their development. The girls are at full time school (Hammersmith) and have a set schedule with activities/classes (more details of their schedules can be provided).
==The family have a holiday home in Switzerland and like to travel during school holidays so an EU passport is a must. Proxy-parenting on occasion when the parents are away.
==Accommodation if required will be Nanny's own bedroom & bathroom (in both London & Switzerland).
==If daily; nearest stations are Royal Oak and Bayswater.
==A driver is preferable - especially for time in Switzerland, but less so in London.
==Pay is competitive depending on the right candidate. Our clients are looking for the right person and so will be flexible to their needs.
