Job Description


 March 2023



 €20 - 27 gross per hour


A family moving from America to Amsterdam require a hard working, extensively experienced, career nanny for their baby who was born in August 2022.


The nanny is needed Monday - Thursday from 7.30 - 7.30pm. Some weeks they will need you on a Friday as well.


Ideally you can start in March, the Mum returns to work full time in April.


The initial contract will be for either 8 or 12 months (they are happy to discuss the length during the interviews). It's possible they will ask to extend the contract as the family will be living in Amsterdam for a few years.


Both parents have very demanding jobs therefore this a sole charge role. They will work from home at times but due to the nature of their jobs you will have autonomy in your role. The exact location of the job needs to be determined most likely near Zuid or Oud Zuid or Vondelpark area in Amsterdam. 


The baby has a structured daily routine you will need to follow. You will need to research and find classes and local activities for you and the baby to attend. They are also keen you arrange regular playdates for the baby. It's important you provide educational and appropriate stimulating activities at home and out and about. They would love for the baby to be outside as much as possible.


Driving isn't required. You don't need to cycle however the family are happy to discuss purchasing a bike or bakfiets for you to use to transport the baby.


It's important you have previous experience of weaning a baby from formula to solids as you will be responsible for this task including batch cooking so there is baby food for when you are off duty.


All standard nursery duties, emptying the dishwasher, cleaning the nursery and general tidying are part of your duties.


You need to be happy to travel with the family throughout the year. They have trips planned in Europe and in America for 7 - 14 days per trip. When travelling you will probably be needed five days per week.


This job will suit a nanny with a strong work ethic, a passion for nannying, very flexible, strong communication skills, warm and caring.


This is a role for a nanny with at least five years nanny experience ideally more. You need to have worked with a baby of similar age in more than one nanny role to be considered for this role.


For this role you will be employed by the family.
