Nanny

Hello! I'm Caroline. I'm mum to three gorgeous children - a daughter of 12 and twin boys who are just 10. The boys attend a local primary school in Carshalton Beeches, which they love, my daughter started high school in September and I work full-time in central London as a solicitor.
We live in Sutton and since I divorced (very amicably) some years ago, the children live with both of us - one week at my house (with my husband) and one week at their dad's house. (Our houses are 10 minutes away from each other). It works well and the children have homes in both houses. We are used to having nannies as I went back to work part-time when the boys were 1 (until then our daughter was at a day nursery).

After a lot of thought, our permanent nanny who was with us for 3 years, has decided not to return after her maternity leave. We are now urgently recruiting for a new permanent nanny with an interest in slightly older children, who understands their needs and interests and can support them, as well as someone who positively enjoys planning and organising and is happy to do this over two households. If this sounds like you and you would enjoy being entertained daily by three funny, lively and very loving children, then please get in touch! Thanks for reading!
Core hours would be: Term Time - Mon - Fri : 7.30am - 9am
2.30pm - 7pm

and then 7.30 am to 7pm during school holidays (when either me or the childrens' dad weren't with them).

Obviously if you could be flexible enough to accomodate sick days from school and odd days off as well from time to time that would be wonderful. We will always give notice of these wherever possible and like to work in a mutually co-operative way with our nannies. We respect your time and the fact that you have a life outside work and value someone who understands how important their commitment to us is. Salary is based on experience, but is generally within the usual levels for this type of role. We average the monthly salary out over term time and holiday hours so you will receive the same pay each month and you receive equivalent pro-rata holiday hours too. You will need energy and enthusiasm, an ability to cook good healthy meals and a warm, loving nature as well as a natural talent for organisation. You will also need to be able to drive and own your own car, as the schools are a little too far to walk and the children have clubs and events to get to after school, as well as going out and about in their free time.
Ideally you will also be OFSTED registered but this isn't a barrier as long as you are able and willing to become registered.
Hope to hear from you soon - promise that the kids are great fun (I know I'm biased!)
