A friendly and down to earth German family who live in Höchst im Odenwald, Germany, are now looking for a full-time nanny to join their family home. You should hold a driving licence for this role due to the location.
A professional family who have two children, aged 4 and 7 years old. They are looking for a new long-term nanny to join their family home with a focus on education. They live in a beautiful property and enjoy having long-term members of staff in their home. They have no pets. They also have a part-time housekeeper who attends to do the deep cleaning, ironing etc within the property.
The children speak fluent English and German, so you will need to speak fluent English. Ideally you should speak a good level of German in order to communicate to support the children with their homework as well. The parents are both very busy with work and personal commitments, and thus need a nanny who is confident with both sole and shared charge. You should be warm, kind and compassionate, with joy for looking after children. Creative, fun and stimulating to the ages of the children. As with COVID, some of the children are expected to be at home (when the schools are closed) and you would need to help with home learning. You will be in charge throughout the whole day, including school runs, activities, homework, taking to play dates and arranging fun activities for them all of them, etc. You should be willing to keep the child's area clean and tidy - although you won't have to do cleaning, you should be organized and tidy, with a great attitude. You should also be happy to cook for the children. You should be loving and caring, allowing the children to enjoy their sense of discovery and growth, and you should encourage learning activities at home. In the evening you'll be helping with the bed and bath routine. The parents will typically take over when they are done with work with a bit of overlapping time in case they make it earlier (e.g. for dinner and bedtime story then).
The family live live in Höchst im Odenwald, Germany. You will be provided beautiful accommodation in the main house, but it has its separate entrance, with its own kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom. All your utilities and wifi will be included.
You must speak either fluent German with some English, or Fluent English with some German.
You should be looking for a long-term role and have experience working with children of these ages.
