Job Description

Postion GSTAAD, SWITZERLAND + travel: English-speaking, Live-in, Male Nanny (B9, B11 & G13 yrs)
Location GSTAAD + travel: May start (**EU passport essential & driver req**) ££££

GSTAAD, early May start: Our very long-standing, French-speaking clients are looking for an English-speaking Male Nanny to join their household to work with the 3 school-age children: B9, B11 & G13 years. The role is mainly with the youngest child. 

Post-Brexit the new candidate must be an EU passport holder, so a native French/Italian or Spanish Manny would be great, but the family do require a candidate who can also speak & write fluently in English as well. This role would be well-suited to a candidate a couple of years out of university.

The family has had a young Male Nanny/Tutor for the past few years which has been a great success, and are now recruiting for a new person to start May-time (perhaps recently out of University and looking for an overseas opportunity with travel). The person is required to work a mixture of shared and sole charge care, but will be responsible for all school runs, sporting activities and will travel with the family to their homes in South France  and other locations. Therefore a confident EU driver is essential.

The Manny will be working with 3 energetic and charming children (13, 11 & 9 years), thought primarily this role is for the youngest who is term time are all at school full time.  Candidate will work with mother to do school runs etc and will ensure that children do their homework after their post school activities, also cover when mother is travelling away from home for a couple of days.  

It is a busy, fully staffed household with a team comprising of a Senior Assistant to Mother/Nanny and also Housekeepers and a Chef. It is a happy household with lots of energy and many well-established routines. The children are incredibly articulate and all speak English as their first language whilst also possessing an excellent bilingual use of French as their parental mother tongue, hence our client's request for a candidate who can also support their English.

Candidate must be trustworthy, reliable, responsible and adaptable, with other qualities including: being consistent, honest, confident, fit & energetic, creative, innovative, computer literate, well-presented and ideally British. A candidate in their mid-20's would be well-suited.  Manny must be able to positively manage the children, particularly when parents are both travelling away from home; organise, activities with the children when travelling, teaching skills to support and develop children's learning, organise and facilitate regular social activities and extracurricular.

A person who is sporty, active, outgoing and fun and will be a mentor and companion to the children. The family are very active and enjoy their "winter sports", so a good skier would be a real bonus (all ski equipment supplied).  Fundamentally the Manny needs to work as part of a team in a busy, fun household and co-operate with other household members/staff.

The clients are very, very well known to us at the agency and will provide a superb remuneration package for a skilled, first-rate candidate with an excellent portfolio including check-able references.   Confident, responsible driver is very important (automatic) and now we are post-Brexit, an EU passport is essential.   Beautiful nanny accommodation.

Initial interviews by FaceTime, to start early May.
