Nanny
A lovely family in Long Hanborough are looking for an experienced nanny to become a part of their family.

They have two girls (3 and 5 months). The eldest is in nursery and the baby stays at home. You will provide excellent childcare to both children, caring for them with love and attention.

You value child attachment and want to help raise secure children you will special bond with.

The father works in tech full time and splits his time between London and working at home. The mother is an entrepreneur, working part time in her home office.
