A family of 4 in Knightsbridge is looking for a live-in nanny housekeeper to care for their 2 boys, aged 4 and 7.
Your role with be about 50/50 nannying and housekeeping.
On an average day, you will start at 7:30 and make sure the boys are ready for school. The mum usually does the school run. Once they have left the house you will make a start on the housekeeping. This involves the cleaning, doing laundry, ironing, and general tidying. All must be done to a high standard. They have another housekeeper who comes in 3 days a week, so you will work alongside her. There is normally an hour or two during the day when you can have a break before the boys get home from school. Once they are back you will get them settled and then prepare a snack for them. Sometimes the mum will take them out, other times you will organize a playdate or another activity. You will set the table and help to clean up once dinner is finished (you don't need to cook). The parents tend to do the boy's nighttime routine. Your day will finish around 8 pm.
The ideal nanny will be someone who is experienced in completing all household takes to a high standard. Someone who loves kids and is able to be engaging/playful with them but also in control of discipline. The nanny must be reliable, happy, discreet, proactive, and fun but firm. Most important is someone who is capable and confident to be home alone or alone with kids.
Regular babysitting and the ability to travel with the family to beach destinations is required.
Someone who is open do doing a half-day on Saturday (finishing by 1 pm) would be ideal but not essential.
Your accommodation is a single bed with an en suite.
This is a really lovely role where you will have some free time each day.
