HAMMERSMITH: Live-in OR Daily Nanny (4 children; G7.5, G6 & B3.5 years and baby, 4 months)  - flexible autumn start, driver essential ££££
We are looking for a new, trained nanny for professional clients in Hammersmith. This could be a Live-in OR a Daily role.
And we are replacing the family’s current, fantastic Norlander who has been with the family for 5 very happy years – and highly recommends the position!
Our clients have 4 very happy, well-adjusted & engaging children: G7.5, G6 & B3.5 years and baby, 4 months.
The working hours would ideally be 7:30/8.00am to 6:30pm, Monday - Thursday (or Friday if the nanny would like 5 days, totally negotiable!). And our clients are able to accept applications from both Live-in & Daily nannies.
The older children (the girls) are in fulltime school and the toddler will be in nursery 4-5 mornings/week from the autumn.
From September, their eldest daughter (7.5 years) will be attending a school outside London where she will do all of her homework/prep – so she will leave home at 7.15am and return around 6.30pm every evening. She will travel there and back using the school bus and her parents will take her to and from the bus.
Having had a Norlander for so long, the children are remarkably self-sufficient and able to dress themselves, make their own beds and organise their belongings for the day. They have no allergies or special needs. They love being outdoors, playing games in the park and visiting museums, as well as being at home doing arts and crafts, puzzles, reading or mucking about with messy play!
As a family, they love the outdoors, fresh air and exercise and are keen to bring up their children interested in nature and the environment around them. Therefore we are looking for someone who is active, has a sense of fun and adventure, and has a passion for working with young children and taking a key role in their development.
Other qualities we seek are being organised, proactive and self-motivated, as the parents like to give a lot of autonomy to their nanny to plan the children’s schedules, meals and development.
Importantly, our clients see their nanny as an integral member of the family team. This is particularly important to them as they both work full time (sometimes working from home regularly and so able to support the nanny with school drop offs and pick-ups and other logistics as required.)
A Housekeeper comes 3 times per week and most of the children’s laundry is taken care of – the nanny is not expected to do any ironing.
For holidays the family go skiing, to the Mediterranean and travel to Scotland & Norfolk. And they are happy to take our nanny with them, or equally happy if she would prefer not to join them.
Confident London driver is an essential requirement.
Our clients live in a large, newly-renovated house in Hammersmith with a good-sized south facing garden. And they are extremely well connected by tube, rail and bus (Shepherd’s Bush, Goldhawk Road & Hammersmith tube stations are all just a few minutes walk). And are a short walk from several parks and playgrounds (Holland Park, Ravenscourt Park & Brook Green). There are also numerous libraries, art centres, theatres and museums nearby that offer a broad programme of children’s activities.
We are able to welcome applications from Live-in AND Daily nannies. For a live-in nanny, there is a lovely bright & airy bedroom with a Juliet balcony and en-suite bathroom on its own floor at the top of the house, with separate fridge, toaster and kettle available on that floor for the nanny.
We are looking for someone to start anytime in the autumn, but our clients are happy to be flexible on start dates as they are on paternity/maternity leave until early 2023. The family’s previous nanny cannot recommend this family enough and would be more than happy to speak to anyone interested in taking over this role.
