Job Description

   
Postion PUTNEY: Live-in Nanny (4 children, but primarily twin babies who will be 5 months)
Location PUTNEY: mid-Jan/early Feb start £££
Description

End January/early February 2021 in Putney:   A very confident Live-in Baby Nanny is required to assist with 4 children.  The children will be 5.5 & 3.5 years and twins 5 months at the start of the position.

The role is to start mid-Jan/Feb 2021 to have decent handover with mother before she goes back to work. The 4 children are B5, G3 and identical twins (who were born in Sept).  There are 4 children, but the role is primarily to care for the twins.  The parents are both working professionals, and their roles mean that one of the parents is usually around in the morning & evening to assist the nanny (there are also some very hands-on and loving, local grandparents who help with back-up!). 

Our clients require a confident Baby Nanny as the role will predominantly will be working with the twin babies.
As they will be about 5 months when the role starts, they need a nanny who is a pro with babies (twins experience is preferable) and someone confident with weaning stages etc etc.  The babies in great routine, mother hasn't had a MN, but one of the grannie's has been helping out and between them, they have got the twins into a super routine so far. 

The eldest child, B5 years old, is at school locally.  And the G3 years spends 2.5 days at nursery (Mon, Wed & Fri) and 2.5 days at home with the nanny. 

This is a very family-orientated household and Grandparents are close by and Covid-depending, do like to be hands-on and are very willing to help and be used for back-up.  So we do need a candidate who is OK with busy household.
The nanny will have support from the parents & grandparents, but a nanny who is a multi-tasker and an all-rounder - someone who can also help with homework.

The family live very close to Wandsworth Park & the river and it is a relaxed, fun household. They are a very outdoorsy & active family and do want a nanny who will enjoy going to the parks. Mother is really into watersports (sailing etc) and is keen to raise the children to enjoy outdoor activities, so a good swimmer and a candidate who enjoys that too. Father works in the creative arts industry, so encourages reading,arts, music, imaginary play etc.  

A driver would be super- helpful, but is not essential. And the family are open to nationality as long the nanny has excellent spoken English (to be able to assist with homework etc). They previously had a Spanish, Daily Nanny for 2.5 years, so the children have a basic knowledge of Spanish! 

Nanny accommodation will be the whole of a newly refurbished loft space; bedroom with ensuite bathroom. Good market rate salary.

Interviews are now taking place for a mid-January/early February start.  Do call us on 0207 610 9218, or email CVs to info@nanniesofstjames.com
