Important that the candidates enjoy cooking for the children and if making a Shepherds Pie, will make extra for Mum and themselves.   There are currently two nannies and a maternity nurse in the household in San Francisco, so the boys are used to that and enjoy an active, sporty and busy schedule of play dates, classes etc.  Family are going to be living near parks and school and nursery, so whilst a driver would be helpful, most activities and classes will be in walking distance.   This is a relaxed household, but we are looking for a Manny as well as a Nanny to give the boys a good balance of care.  The nannies cover 6 days per week and work in tandem covering the days/hours.  Maternity nurse should be happy to assist nannies to integrate the boys with their new sibling and should also work on getting a good sleep routine in place for the baby.

This lovely British family are seeking a bright, engaged & upbeat nanny able to stimulate and nature their 3-year-old daughter and baby boy of 7-months. Their eldest is a sweet, intuitive & astute little girl with a love for play-dates (very sociable!), ballet, music, swimming, outdoor activities and day trips out. As she is quite advanced for her age, especially with speech, our clients are specifically seeking a fun yet, educationally focused candidate familiar with the EYFS and able to continue/further her development going forwards. Similarly, our client’s younger son is also very affectionate, smiley and sweet-natured. As their littlest one will be 7-months of age and already enjoys being sung and chatted to, our clients are keen for their new nanny to research and arrange age-appropriate classes to participate with him in. The family reside in a beautiful loft apartment spread over two floors within the super trendy area of Shoreditch. With the loft once previously two separate flats, the nanny’s accommodation provided on the lower flat area is still very separate and independent, despite these floors being interconnected now. As mentioned, the family share the stairwell but are mindful of their nanny’s downtime and do openly encourage their current nanny to make the most of this large, private space consisting of a large bedroom, huge kitchen and living area!  Due to their central London location, the surrounding area boasts great cafes, shops, a cinema, gyms, restaurants and park/canal walks, as well as plenty of local activities for children just a short drive away! Furthermore, this vibrant fun corner of London also neighbours many cultural attractions such as – Columbia Road Flower market, Brick Lane, Spitalfields Markets – so plenty of fun places nearby to explore during your time off!  An active candidate (3rd floor of a tall, warehouse building, with many stairs!) and driver essential for this position. In addition, the family do also require a candidate able to carry out a small amount of European & US travel with them. Working hours will be Monday to Friday, 8am to 7:30pm, with the position to start ASAP. As mentioned, we are tasked with replacing the family's current long-standing nanny, and of whom has been an integral part of their family. Therefore, our clients are looking for a new long-term candidate who will equally embed themselves with them and who can be similarly trusted and depend on. Most importantly, our clients are seeking a kind, enthusiastic candidate with a positive outlook and someone clearly motivated and passionate about their profession within childcare.  Sole Charge Sole Live In or Daily Live-in Accommodation nanny flat supplied Driver Yes Use of Car Yes
