Postion STAMFORD BROOK: Junior-style, Live-in Nanny (3 little boys, 2 yrs & twins 4 mnths) Location STAMFORD BROOK W12: to start by Sept Description New clients of ours in Stamford Brook W12 are seeking a new Live-in Nanny to replace their much loved au-pair who has returned home. The family have 3 adorable little boys, toddler of 2 years and twins currently 4 months. But as this is a semi-shared care role the nanny will never be on her own with all 3 children at any one time. Nanny will either be responsible for the twins, or the toddler, and mother will take the other boy(s). This role is best suited to a Junior-style Nanny, someone who is looking to further her professional nanny career, but has some experience of babies & toddlers.  In the leafy area of West London, there are activities and nurseries within walking distance, so our clients don't need a driver. This is a Monday - Friday role.  Our clients don't currently have pets, but extended family do, so it would be helpful if the nanny likes dogs.  The nanny accommodation is a double bedroom, bathroom and a private TV area within the family home.  Our clients would love a candidate who is looking to become part of their family for ideally a couple of years. To start at the earliest convenience, and definitely by September, interviews are taking place now.
