Postion LONDON, THEN SUSSEX: Live-in Nanny for 4 children (7, 5, 4 & 1 years)
Location LONDON, THEN SUSSEX: early 2019 start (driver essential)
Description

Initially Holland Park; relocating late winter/early spring to West Sussex. End January start for a very confident Live-in Nanny (driver essential).  Working hours: Monday to Friday 7am to 7pm and salary is highly competitive.


New clients of ours, currently in Holland Park (near to the tube station) are seeking a new Live-in Nanny to care for their 4 children; shared care with mother. Please note that around Easter-time the family will be relocating to West Sussex and will require the nanny to move with them.


The family have 4 children: G7 (with slight learning difficulties) + G5 (academic) + B4 (v. active!) + baby boy 1 year old. Mum works from home, but is very supportive and keen to work well with the new Nanny as part of the household team and there is also a House Keeper, so the nanny will never have all 4 children on her own, so plenty of back up! The family have employed nannies previously and we are replacing a nanny who is moving on to pastures new, and the clients have had great previous experience with Norland candidates, but are open to candidates providing they are experienced, competent and confident.


They are looking for a candidate who can hit the ground running and can empathise and bond with each child. Their eldest requires someone understanding, patient and considerate; their second child would need someone educationally astute and focused; their third child requires someone engaging and full of energy; whilst their fourth child requires someone who has good developmental understanding. 


An animal lover is a must as there are two boxer dogs, two cats, guinea pigs and horses on the estate.  And a confident driver is essential - especially after the move to the country. 


This is a British household, with lovely, fun, down to earth, professional parents. There will be some fun, international travel during the school holidays, with the family looking for a compassionate and experienced candidate who loves working with children of all ages with a “get-up and go” attitude! 


In London the family will be in Holland Park (next to Holland Park tube) and in West Sussex (from Easter-time) the family will be near Midhurst, which is approximately 18 minutes from Haslemere train station, which has 4 direct trains to London Waterloo an hour!    Nanny accommodation will be a private bedroom with bathroom & living area in the family home.

Interviews will be taking place in the early new year, and the position is to start from mid/end January onwards.  Ideally to start in January in London, but if the right candidate can only join the family when they have moved to Sussex this could be considered.   Please do collate your portfolios and send them to us at info@naniesofstjames.com  or call us in the new year on 0207 6109218
