Live-Out Nanny/Housekeeper (80% nanny duties)
A busy couple who run a high end business with UHNW clients, are in need of an experienced Nanny/Housekeeper for their home in South Kensington. The family are looking for candidates with good previous experience, professional maturity and common sense. Someone who is motivated, proactive and has initiative.
The Nanny side is the main focus of the position, approximately 80% of the job. Light, basic housekeeping - 1 to 1.5 hrs on the days the girl attends nursery. The apartment is 1,500 sq ft on one level. Low maintenance home and the family keep it up to a good standard themselves.
2 children - an 8 yr old boy and an almost 2 yr old girl. The boy attends school a 5 minute walk from the home and stays for after-school activities most days, finishing by 5 pm. The girl is starting nursery Tues, Wed, Thurs mornings until 1 pm. It is anticipated this will increase to 4 mornings per week and later on to 4 days per week until 3.30 pm. Nursery duties, children’s laundry and basic housekeeping on the mornings when the little girl is at nursery . On Mon and Fri when she is at home, full nanny duties are the focus - activities, play, outings etc. Collect the boy from school, then assist with any homework, dinner, bath etc., finishing 6.30/7 pm (again negotiable). Prepare children’s meals - decent cooking skills to provide a good range of simple, healthy, tasty and nutritious food.
If necessary, the family can be flexible for the daily start time - finding the right candidate is the most important thing, so they are open to discussion on start time. The ideal schedule would be a 7.45 am start, in order to take the children to school at just after 8 am. Another option could be a 10.30 start on the days the girl goes to nursery and a 9 am start on Mon & Fri when she is home.
One evening babysitting (Mon -Thurs) per standard contract. Possibility of 2nd evening babysitting or occasionally once at the weekend, but this is negotiable and of course, paid extra. The family may also ask you to accompany them on holiday too. They are a lovely family, known to the agency, who are smart, flexible, appreciative and down to earth.
Salary is £12-£14 net per hour, but negotiable for the right candidate. Start ASAP.
Candidates must have good previous nanny experience, current paediatric first aid certificate, good verifiable references, be in London and legal to work in the UK.
