Position: Permanent Residential Nanny/Tutor. Job: Formal, Private Family. Start: early October 2020. Contract length: 1 year. Location: Brussels, Belgium.
Salary: Negotiable. Driver essential. English MT essential.
Our busy high profile clients are seeking a new English speaking Nanny required to help care for 3 children; B3.5, G5 & B7 years.
The role will be sole charge, working 7:30am to 9.00am, and then 12.00pm to 7:30pm, Tuesday to Friday and 7:30am to 7:30pm on Saturdays.
The family are looking for a proactive, organized, confident and discreet Nanny/Tutor, with experience of looking after children of a similar age. The right candidate will be comfortable working in a high profile setting and will be able to adapt themselves to different situations. All three children are happy and healthy, in a good routine, attending various activities such as hockey, swimming, dancing and horse riding throughout the week. The role will include typical nursery duties, assisting with school runs, managing the children’s schedule, packing for holidays and organizing age appropriate activities.
The nanny must be native English speaker and our clients are interviewing now for an energetic, organised, sporty and very active candidate with ten years experience plus. It would be great if candidate is fine with some occasionally proxy parenting and who is also a confident driver to do school runs etc. All the children are at school and nursery, so mornings are free until the little boy finishes at school at 12.00 pm. Babysitting perhaps once per week.
The family lives in a beautiful fully-staffed property based on 17 acres in the Brussels suburbs, just 10 minutes by train or 15 minutes by car to the city centre, 1 hour 30 mins from Paris and 2 hours from London. The property boasts a vegetable garden, orchard, small wood and lake, and the family have pets including two ponies, one rabbit and one cat. Holiday travel will be required, with the family travelling almost every school holiday to their second residences (located in the Belgian country side, Belgian coast, and in Switzerland) or yacht.
Nanny accommodation will be a self-contained flat within the family grounds, comprising a private bedroom & bathroom with a shared living room/kitchen (with one other female staff member). A driver is essential, with a car provided for nursery duties and sole use so nanny can be very independent.
