Our clients are very open to the hours the Weekend Nanny might like to work and are open to candidates. Their dream scenario would be a candidate who can work a minimum of 3 weekends per month and work from Friday lunchtime through to Sunday evening - but they are open to options. The family have a beautiful, country residence in the heart of the Cotswolds and decamp out of London 2-3 times per month (plus holidays), and they do need the nanny to accompany them.  The country house has a tennis court and a swimming pool, so it's vitally important the Weekend Nanny can swim and has a love of outdoor life.  But the family don't need a driver as the nanny will leave London with the family. The role will be a mixture of sole and shared charge, eg: taking the older boys so mother can have quiet time with the baby, or vice versa and taking the baby so parents can have time with the boys (who are active little chaps!); with babysitting for all 3 children on occasional evenings. There will be a short handover with the weekly nanny on a Friday (if the nanny starts on a Friday) and with the Housekeeper on a Sunday evening. This is a lovely role for a relaxed, happy family who are looking for someone to join their family, giving them back-up and support - most suited to a candidate who is as happy in her wellies as she is in her loafers!  This role is best suited to a Live-in candidate, but our clients will consider Daily candidates for the London part, providing the Nanny will come to the Cotswolds. Good salary remuneration will be offered - interviews now taking place, so do call us for more information: 0207 610 9218 Sole Charge Shared Live In or Daily Live-in Accommodation supplied when required
