Live-in Daily/Sole Charge Nanny (Ref. J2826)

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

Job Description

January 2021: We have a lovely new role for returning clients in SOUTHFIELDS SW18. They are recruiting for an English MT, sole charge, Live-in OR Daily (if local) Nanny to care for their 2 children, G4 years & baby boy 5.5 months. Our clients are professional working parents.

Working 5 days/week, Monday - Friday, our clients will consider both Live-in OR Daily nannies, but if "daily", then the nanny should live locally and ideally not have to use public transport.

==  Working hours if Daily: on average 0800 - 18.00 (with occasionally one longer day midweek and finishing earlier on a Friday).

== Working hours if Live-in: 0700 - 1900 with 2 babysits.

The family are looking for an educationally astute candidate who is also perfectly competent and confident with small babies.  Their daughter, 5 years (at school in E Putney) is very intuitive and our clients want a nanny who will also have fun with her (this is an important requirement!) engage and be social with her.  And Covid-depending, organise age-appropriate classes etc.  The baby will be at home with the nanny so it is essential to have a nanny who will perform full nursery duties, weaning, cooking, preparing snacks, and perhaps the odd PA errand etc.  In "normal times" there is an excellent nanny network in the area, so when Covid restrictions are lifted, there should be lots of company for playdates and activities

Both parents are in busy careers (though may have to work from home from time to time). The family were recommended to us by a candidate of ours and have requested a candidate who is able to drive - this is absolutely essential for when the car is needed for their daughter's school runs (very wet days for example). The family currently have no pets, but are thinking about perhaps getting a dog - so someone pet-friendly.   

Our clients can accommodate both Live-in OR Daily candidates.  But if the nanny is a Daily candidate, then it is preferred that she is local to SW18, ideally not having to use public transport. But for reference, our clients are based in Southfields SW18, close to the tube station and not far from Coronation Gardens and King George's Park.   Nanny accommodation for Live-in nanny is own bedroom & bathroom.


They are looking for the nanny to start in early January 2021 and there will be handover with mum (who is currently on ML) in December before Christmas. A good market-rate salary is available for a great, native English MT nanny, who can drive, who is fun and has experience with primary school ages & babies.
