Job Description

A well-traveled, dynamic family that splits their time between Fairfield, CT and Oslo, Norway is seeking a calm, engaging, and travel-ready rotational nanny to join their team in caring for their 3-year-old and 1-year-old daughters!

 

  • Location: Fairfield, CT and Oslo, Norway
  • Ages of children: 3 and 1 years old
  • Start date/Contract dates: As soon as they find the right fit!
  • Schedule: This is a rotational position of 7 days on, 7 days off with working hours during on weeks typically falling between 7am-7pm. Flexibility for travel or to exchange shifts with the other rotational nanny may be asked in advance and appreciated.
  • Compensation and benefits: The family is offering $45/hour as well as a generous benefits package including a travel bonus, full health insurance, relocation assistance, and two weeks of paid time off.
  • Live-in/Live-out: Live-in. At the family’s home in Connecticut, this includes a separate guest house for the nanny team where all nannies have a private bed and bath, use of shared kitchen and living spaces, and each nanny will have access to their own vehicle. Accommodations at all locations will include a private bedroom and bathroom. A candidate who is local to Fairfield, CT and prefers to live-out while there would also be welcome.

Daily environment:

  • This on-the-go family enjoys a travel-heavy schedule that allows them to split time between their homes in Connecticut and Oslo, as well as frequently taking week-long trips to their property in Northern California!
  • They are hardworking and family-oriented while having a welcoming, relaxed environment in their home. Their 3-year-old is a happy toddler who enjoys adventuring in the world around her and loves animals, especially the family’s golden retriever! Their 1-year-old daughter is loving snuggles with mom and learning to see and explore her environment. They are excited to add an even-keeled, go-with-the-flow nanny to their team who is ready to jump in with both feet, a confident traveler, and can bring a tranquil atmosphere to their fast-paced lives.

Ideal candidate:

  • This position is ideal for a candidate with an adventurous spirit and a passion for travel! The family is eager to work with a caregiver who brings this travel experience and worldly outlook to the role.
  • A go-with-the-flow mindset to roll with the day-to-day routine where plans may fluctuate and travel is (hopefully soon and safely!) always around the corner. When it comes to their daughters, the family hopes for a candidate who is safety-conscious and places an emphasis on being present in mind and body at all times.
  • Assisting with child-related household duties will be greatly appreciated, as well as preparing healthy age-appropriate meals for the children.
  • Their current nanny team consists of one weekday nanny and one other rotational Adventure Nanny! Candidates will work as a team to offer 7 day/week coverage and can expect to work in tandem with a co-nanny during working days to provide well-rounded care for both children. A candidate who is adaptable, even-keeled, a great communicator, and travel-ready will thrive in this home and team for years to come!

Must haves:

  • At least 3 years of professional, full-time childcare experience
  • Valid driver’s license and passport
  • Recent, proven experience with toddlers
  • Experience traveling with families
  • Safety-conscious and able to be present in body and mind at all times
  • Collaborative with good communication skills
  • Flexible and adaptable to schedule changes
  • Ability to travel frequently with the family and for extended periods of time
  • Calm and even-keeled in hectic environments
  • Strong preference for a candidate with a Bachelor’s degree or higher
  • Dog friendly!
  • Fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to start date and willing to take booster shots as recommended in accordance with applicable laws.
  • Willingness to mirror the family’s COVID-19 precautions as requested.
