We are an English/French family living in Hampstead (NW3) looking for a reliable, energetic and caring nanny to take a full-time live-in position with a view to a becoming part of the family and staying with us long term. The role is predominantly sole care of a gorgeous boy who is at nursery (9am-2pm) and will be 2 and a half by January 2021 which is when the position is available. That involves the usual range of duties for a toddler- dressing him, taking him to nursery (a 25 mins walk), pick up, his meals, laundry, developmental play, going out for activities, keeping his room tidy and bathing (if Dad is home from work he will do the bath or storytime). He is a good eater and sleeper and has lots of energy (he goes every day to the nearby park for frolics). The role is also to assist with the care of a new baby expected in February 2021. Mum will be taking about 6 months off and will be focused on the new arrival but can do with some help whilst our little boy is at nursery.
We’d like someone who has some experience of a new-born, is comfortable with small dogs (we have a very friendly Yorkshire terrier) and has a can-do attitude. We have a well organised and tidy household and a cleaner who comes three times a week. We have a garden. A French speaker is a bonus but not required. No need to be a driver. A non-smoker is essential.
The hours are 7-7 Monday to Friday with up to 2 evenings of baby-sitting.
The accommodation is a high quality recently built flat in the front basement which is a double bedroom studio with its own private en-suite bathroom, kitchen and underfloor heating.
Salary - £400 to £500 net per week depending on experience.
