A busy family based in Central London, W1H, are now looking for a travelling holiday nanny. You should be available from the 16th of July (to fly), for 1 month or 6 weeks as per your preference.
A professional and intelligent family of four (soon to be five with mother expecting her third child in November), with two young children aged 4 years old and 7 years old, are looking for a travelling holiday nanny. The family are international and the father speaks French. They are travelling to Croatia for 6 weeks, and need a holiday nanny to travel with them. They are open to a manny or nanny, but you should be willing to get fully involved in family life and help the family have a wonderful relaxing holiday!
You should be warm, kind and compassionate, with joy for looking after children. The family want the nanny to be attuned to the children and have a genuine, fun connection with them. Active, fun and stimulating to the ages of the children. Lots of roleplay and unstructured fun times, activities based on the activities local, such as tennis and swimming and boat days.
You should be a confident swimmer and happy to be on the water with the family, be organized and be able to pack the day bags in the morning, get the children out to activities and have fun with them all. You'll have some breaks during the day when the children are resting or with the parents, and you can have your evenings to yourself, as the family will be together.
You'll be staying locally to the family villa, and the family will accommodate you. You should ideally drive, but this isn't required if you do not.
You will be accommodated for the holiday trip, with all travel expenses and food covered.
You should speak a good level of English for this role. The father also speaks French so you should speak French to communicate with him.
You should be highly flexible, willing to travel and follow COVID-19 compliance, but be easy-going and a big kid at heart to have fun. Organization is key as you need to stay on top of all the daily activities to help the parents relax.

We aim to reply to email/calls within 24 hours, and when you call us you won’t get through to an annoying call centre or computerised systems.
