Lovely family are looking for a full-time live-out nanny/housekeeper to join their family home in Kensal Rise (near Queens Park) in November to take care of our two little girls and help with housework.
G 4 years old is very outgoing, adventurous and sociable, she loves her friends at nursery. She is very active, quick to learn and is confident in climbing, biking, scooting etc. She loves getting involved with cooking, arts and crafts and role play. She attends nursery (8 minutes’ walk from the family home) 9am - 3pm five days a week and attends a couple of after school clubs.
Baby G 3 months is settling into the family: so far she is a calm and happy baby and is feeding and sleeping well. Mum is still breast- feeding but baby also accepts a bottle and formula is being introduced to wean fully off the breast by end of November.
We are looking for a nanny who is experienced with babies (following/adapting routines, weaning etc) but also with strong-willed toddlers: someone loving and nurturing who the girls feel safe with - and grow to trust and adore – but someone who can also be firm and hold boundaries to encourage good behaviour. Most important to us is to have someone playful, active, creative and crafty who they simply love being around and have loads of fun with; someone fun and who can be silly, down the ground playing and role playing with the girls!
They are both hard-working business owners but equally hands on parents. We are ideally looking for a nanny who is relatively local and
knows the area but also who uses their initiative, is proactive and can work with us as a team to help advise on toddler behavioural tactics and baby routines. Someone who can spot what needs to be done to support the family and sociable to connect into local networks and activities.
They’d like the nanny to complete all standard nursery duties and children’s meal preparation along with housework while the baby girl sleeps or mum is taking kids out. Housework will be a weekly clean of the house (and sheet change) along with day-to-day tidying, organising, family laundry, ironing and watering plants.
- Guaranteed 50x hours per week @ £12/hour = 779GPW
- Hours will be mainly week days (7.30am-6.30pm Mon-Thurs + 6 hours on Fridays) but with some flexibility to exchange weekly hours for Saturdays once every three weeks
- Requires some flexibility for overtime, babysitting or proxy parenting during occasional times when both parents are away
- Opportunity to travel on family holidays
- 28 days paid holiday including bank holidays
