  • Nannies of St James
  • Kensington, London, UK
Full time Nanny

Job Description

Kensington, October start: Very experienced Live-in, 24/5 Nanny required for a formal household, working 24/5 (Sun 6 pm - Fri 6 pm) with 3 children.  Please do note that accommodation is supplied when the nanny is on duty only.

This a live-in role from Sunday evening - Friday evening and the nanny will have a bedroom & bathroom to use when she is on duty. There is a Weekend Nanny who has the accommodation over the weekends, so this role is best suited to a nanny who is fairly local/within a reasonable commute to London.

Our clients have 3 children, G5y, G3y & B10m and are seeking a competent, confident candidate who can comfortably manage the daily routines for 3 children. This is a sole charge role, but the mother is around, and there is some back-up in the form of the Live-in Nanny/Housekeeper.  So the nanny, whilst working independently, must be willing to be part of a team.

The Nanny will start at 6 pm on a Sunday and will hand over to the Weekend Nanny at 6 pm on a Friday.

It is imperative for our clients that the new nanny can confidently cope with 3 children: a switched-on, bright, autonomous nanny who will always be one step ahead, be engaging with the children, have excellent communication with the family & with the school/nursery and be able to give educational support schools go back into lockdown and education is from home. A nanny who is immaculately presented and will represent the family well. And it is essential to our clients that the nanny is a complete non-smoker and a confident London driver. 

At night the nanny will take monitor for the girls (who share a room) and mother will take the baby's monitor.  Father works away from time to time and travels a lot, and when Covid restrictions allow, the mother would like to travel with him again, so there will be proxy care required by the nanny. 

This role is Live-in when on duty, going home at weekends as the accommodation is shared with the weekend nanny.
The Nanny accommodation is bedroom & bathroom, and with the hours starting and finishing at 6 pm, the role would be best suited to a Nanny who isn't too far out of London and doesn't have a long commute.

The children's previous nanny was a Spanish-speaker, and our clients will consider Spanish/French/English candidates. Their outgoing nanny was with them for 2 years and has recently returned to the USA.  They currently have a temporary nanny.

A negotiable salary is on offer for a top, very calm nanny with a mature outlook and an excellent track record. To start at the new nanny's earliest convenience (ideally October).
