A live in nanny/governess is sought to work with an international family currently based in Kensington, London. The ideal candidate will be an experienced nanny/governess that enjoys and is comfortable working with children of different age groups simultaneously. The family have three children, two girls aged 3 and 5 and a baby boy aged 9 months.
The focus of the role will be to plan and engage in age appropriate activities and play inside and outside of the home as well as support with the children’s education and school homework. A candidate with teaching qualifications is preferred. A flexible candidate willing to travel at short notice and potentially relocate with the family at some point is preferred. The family have lived in different countries and often travel for business and leisure. Therefore, candidate with previous experience travelling with families and packing for the children at short notice would be advantageous.
The working hours are 24/5 Monday – Friday. The children do sleep and are in a good routine, however, due to the nature of the family’s busy schedule you will need to be available to assist during the night hours as and when needed. A separate double bedroom with en-suite is offered within the family home and they are happy for you to use their kitchen and food whilst working. It would be preferred if you had your own accommodation at weekend, so that you have your own space and time to wind down on your time off. A driver is preferred and the family will offer a car for you to drive the children to school and or extra-curricular activities, such as gymnastics, tennis, swimming, language and dance classes.
A nanny that is mature, active, fluent in English, organised, discreet and affectionate that uses her own initiative and common sense would fit in well with this family who are very loving, fun and sociable with a fast-paced schedule.
The salary on offer is £50,000 GPA and the family is ready to interview immediately in London.
