|Postion||BATTERSEA, relocating to STAFFORDSHIRE: Live-in Nanny (4 boys: twins 7, 5 & 3 years)|
|Location||BATTERSEA then relocating to STAFFORDSHIRE: Aug start *driver essential*|
August start in BATTERSEA then relocating to STAFFORDSHIRE: We are looking for a new Live-in Nanny for this super and very lively, very lovely household in Battersea! This role would be suited to a candidate looking for her second/third nanny appointment.
There are four boys in the household, twin boys of 7, and younger brothers 5 & 3 years. This is very much a position for someone who loves an active, outdoorsy, country lifestyle and boys! This role would be really well-suited to a nanny who already has some experience and is looking for her second/third nanny appointment and who can be flexible to start the role in London and the relocate with the family to Staffordshire.
Our clients currently live near Battersea Park (just a hop over the bridge into Chelsea), but will be gradually moving to Staffordshire (near Stone). During term-time from when the position starts in August until Easter 2022 the family will be in London, but *all* holidays & weekends will be spent in Staffordshire, so it's essential the nanny is flexible and able to travel with them initially, and then be happy to relocate permanently with them from Easter-time 2022.
There are 4 boys all have different personalities but are generally are quite sporty, active and love being outdoors. There is always some type of ball being thrown or kicked (cricket, rugby, football, hockey...!), but they are also creative, playing board games, reading & drawing. The older 3 are all at school and the toddler is in nursery. In London the schools & nursery are a short walk. After the permanent move, the older boys (the twins) will be eventually be flexi/weekly boarding and the nanny might need to do the occasional school run.
This role is predominantly Monday - Friday, but there might be the odd occasion when they need weekend support, so a flexible nanny would be super-helpful, but anything "out of hours" would be by prior arrangement. Likewise if the nanny wants to join the family on holiday, she would be very welcome (usually UK-based, Cornwall, Suffolk).
This is a busy, but very rewarding job with a super family. With a mixture of shared & sole shared care, the Nanny should be happy to team up with Mum, play with the boys, participate in play dates and activities with the boys friends and their nannies. And especially as the family move, helping the boys settle in, meet new friends etc.
The family are happy for the nanny to make it job of her own, to take on more PA duties when the boys are all at school. In Staffordshire the family will be on a country estate, so there will be a lot going on (country sports, contractors etc).
A confident driver is essential and a nanny car will be provided. At the moment there are no pets, but when the family are permanently in Staffordshire they might well get a dog, so it would be helpful if the nanny likes animals. Likewise it is essential the nanny is outdoorsy, active and happy in a busy & lively environment. A sporty nanny who can swim as there is a swimming pool and also tennis courts.
In London the nanny will have her own bedroom & bathroom. In Staffordshire the nanny will initially have a separate nanny annexe until the nanny cottage is fully renovated.
A very good salary on offer, for a confident, energetic, flexible nanny who would like to commit to the family.
