A family in Westminster are looking for a full time nanny to care for their 2 children - a 5 year old boy and a 3 year old girl. Their son in at full time school. You must be someone who is confident helping with his homework, therefore your English should be excellent. Their daughter is in nursery 9am-12pm.
They enjoy spending lots of time outside. At home, the little girl likes doing arts and crafts, role play and playing games. Both children are very curious and like to be super engaged with. You should be clean, tidy and organised with a calm and patient manner.
The ideal person will be loving but firm when needed and good at setting clear boundaries for the children. Someone experienced who enjoys having fun. You will be good at following instructions and also have initiative. You English must be excellent. It will be a mixture of sole care and shared care with the mum so you must be confident working as part of a team.
They are looking for a nanny who will become part of the family and stay with them for the long term. As they want someone to stay long term they want to assure nannies that even when the little girl starts school they can still guarantee full time hours.
They often travel back to Italy where they have a second home and would like the nanny to come with them. You will always have your own bedroom and bathroom when travelling.
You should also be a strong swimmer as they spend a lot of time on beaches/next to the pool.
They have a housekeeper so not housekeeping outside of that which relates to the children is required. You should be confident cooking for the kids.
You will work Monday - Friday, 11:30/12:00-19:30/20:00 term time (40 hours). In school holidays you will work 50-60 hours a week.
