Rota Nanny

Job Description

ASAP autumn/winter start: for returning Kensington-based clients.  We are seeking a fun, experienced Rota Nanny to join our wonderful Norland nanny to work a 24/7 rota, caring for two children G12 & B9 years.  The other half of the rota will be with the family's Norland nanny has been with family for 6 years!  

The two nannies will work a weekly rota basis (handover will be Sunday evening approx. 20.00), and the Nanny will be on call for the duration of her rota. This is a fully staffed household and the other household staff all live out and commence at 9.30am in the morning. This is a reasonably informal, staffed household, but it's helpful and highly desirable for the nanny to have worked alongside other household staff and also travelled internationally before. The 2 Nannies will share the travel which will be planned in advance.

The Nanny is responsible for getting the children up in the morning, getting them ready for school and doing a shared school-run with mum (the children's schools are in opposite directions!). So between them Nanny and mother accompany the children to school every day.  The nanny will have some duties to do during the school day, but will also get a bit of time to herself before everything picks up pace towards the end of the day with school pick-ups, after-school clubs, events, social, homework etc etc. before the evening supper and bedtime routine.

A confident London driver is essential and an automatic car (Discovery) is provided for working week. Typical term time duties include: getting the children ready for school, giving them breakfast, few errands may be required in the day. Pick up from after school clubs, help with homework.

There are no laundry duties as the house is fully staffed, there is a chef who cooks dinner. Although there is a chef in the household, it's important that the nanny is happy to prepare food for the children when the chef is not there, usually weekends and travel. 

The family spend weekends at their country house which is a 40 min drive from London. Lots of lovely travel, typically travel every holiday to homes in Switzerland, Monaco and also USA.  The rota will be more fluid during holiday tie, but the nanny never works more than 3 weeks at a time.

Ideal candidate will be super-organised, easy-going, patient and sporty. A nanny who can confidently manage and have fun with older children.

Competitive salary for top candidate - preferably with formal childcare training and certainly some experience in formal households with school-age children.
