  • Schedule: Full-time, guaranteeing 40-45 hours per week. A candidate can expect to work 8-9 hours a day with two consecutive days off every week. A candidate who is open to travel, evening and weekend care with advanced notice, and collaborating with the family on designing upcoming schedules that work well for all parties, especially as it pertains to the academic year, will be key.
  • Compensation: The family is offering $30-35/hour based on the 40-45-hour/week schedule, which equates to an annualized base compensation of $62-86k/year range dependent on experience and the agreed-upon schedule.

Household dynamic: 

  • This lively family of four is excited to be welcoming a new baby in August! Their 8-year-old son loves sports and plays soccer, tennis, basketball, and golf. He also loves to go fishing, swim in the backyard pool, play in the treehouse, and anything else that allows him to be outside. Their 6-year-old daughter enjoys horseback riding, going to the park, swimming, and is highly creative and artistic. Both kids attend school full-time and participate in after-school activities that keep them busy. They also have three dogs (1 big and 2 small) who are friendly and will be excited to meet you! The family prioritizes screen-free time, so a candidate who is creative, engaging, and emphasizes the children’s academics and other interests will be a great fit for this family! 
  • These dual-career parents are very hands-on with their kids and they look forward to working with a nanny who will be excited to collaborate on a daily basis. Both parents are in and out of the house regularly. They will also have a Newborn Care Specialist for the first few months after the new baby is born so there will be many opportunities for support and collaboration as they transition into being a family of five! This family also enjoys traveling to places like Colorado, Florida, NYC, and North Carolina and they look forward to working with a nanny who will be excited to join them. 

Ideal candidate: 

  • This position is ideal for someone who is highly professional, hands-on, and confident in their role. This family would love to work with a nanny who is looking for their next long-term role with excitement to commit to at least two years and hopefully more! After the new baby arrives and the NCS’ contract ends, the main responsibility of this role will focus on caring for the infant while the older kids attend school full-time. The nanny will also have time to bond with the older kids, engage with them in projects, and support after-school activities and summer schedules although rarely will the nanny care for all three kids at the same time. A candidate who enjoys learning and participating with the family in outdoor activities, sports, swimming and more will be a great fit for the role. Someone who is eager to work alongside parents in a mutually beneficial way and who is honest, loyal, and committed to the role will excel!

A candidate who can see a need and proactively fill the need will thrive!
