Our client is seeking a Live In Nanny to be flexible with hours, to care for 2 young children, 10 months old and 2.5 yrs old. This will be a shared role with the mother who is at home, and therefore on occasion, you must be prepared to take a back seat, and be comfortable with occasional instructions. Duties will include preparing fresh healthy meals for kids, keeping kids clothes / toys clean and organized, supervise kids for mornings or afternoons as requested, keep all baby's bottles and equipment sterilised and run child-related errands, shopping, babysitting etc

 

A Driver ideal but not essential and, a nanny with Montessori experience would be amazing, but not essential. Someone willing to go on holidays with the family and someone who doesn't mind pitching in with other stuff as needed, although the family will eventually, have a full time housekeeper, so no heavy cleaning required.

 

Work across 6 days, but not full-time hours each day, and it's all negotiable. Salary £400 - £450 npwk depending on skills and experience. Accommodation is a basement flat with separate entrance. Start ASAP. Email resume to cv@ljwrecruitment.com
