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
