Daily Nanny - G4, G6 & G8 - ££ - ASAP start Holland Park, W14

Job Description:

Daily Nanny – Travel – G4, G6 & G7.5 + B9 – Holland Park  

A busy family living in Holland Park is looking for an educationally focused nanny to join their household and help care for their children. On a full-time basis, you will be responsible for three girls aged 4, 6 and 7.5 (in the school holidays their son age 9 will be at home from boarding school). The family also have an older daughter aged 14 who will spend half her school holidays with the family and half with her Mother.

They are an active family who have busy schedules and require a nanny who is on the ball, organised, enthusiastic and bright. A nanny who has experience working with school-aged children is important to the family (university degree educated or qualification is childcare is preferable).

This role requires absolute flexibility. In term time, you would usually be required to work roughly 50 hrs, however, the hours required may need to be varied depending on the family’s needs. In school holidays and when travelling these hours may increase. The family will pay a competitive salary, depending on the individual’s qualifications and experience.

The nanny will be responsible for school runs, after school activities, homework help, educational support, admin/pa tasks whilst the children are at school and if the nanny is a confident cook this would be an added bonus.

The family spend 6 weeks of the summer in the Hampton’s, usually one-week skiing in Winter and another 1-2 weeks away during the year. They also have a small, young dog. A driver is essential.

The rough outline of hours in term time would be 3 days working 7:30/8 – 7:30 and two days working Midday – 7:30 (this requires absolute flexibility though, some mornings the Mum can do school run on her own and you won’t need to start so early, occasionally you will be needed). Additional hours and days when travelling and in the school holidays as well as occasional babysitting. This role is available as a live in position for the right Nanny.

A commendable reference is available below from the outgoing Nanny – a Qualified Teacher.

    A reference from their current nanny

    My name is Lucy, and I am on the outgoing Nanny.

    Although I feel like I am moving on for the right reasons, I feel it fundamental to say I am so sad to do so.

    I will have worked for the H for a year and a half.  Their homes are comfortable and welcoming, warm and caring and the other staff you will work with are so splendid.

    M and E are parents who love and respect their children and are open to communication. They nurture the most important values such as, kindness, compassion, respect, generosity, honesty and responsibility. I am so pleased to say that their values align with my own, their parenting style has been so compatible with my care giving style – which has in turn established a substantial team. I sincerely feel like I became family. By this I mean they treated me as such.

    The role is very much divide and conquer, E and M have remarkably busy schedules and it is remarkable because they are still undoubtedly an extensive part of their children’s’ daily lives. I work closely with E to ensure the children’s routines run smoothly, which I am so happy to do so as she is such an inspirational person to work for, in fact, E exemplifies the kind of parent I hope to be.

    However, it is the children who really seal the deal. The H family have five magnificent children, 4 girls and one boy. The eldest boy 9yo and girl 14yo attend boarding school, so I am saddened to say you don’t see them on a daily basis, but you will be able to spend valuable time with them during school holidays.

    At home, there are 3 exceptional girls. Each surprisingly different, yet they do have qualities in common; they are all courteous and kind, confident and motivated, warm and caring, well- educated, study well and cooperative and willing to help one another.

    This job has been so incredibly rewarding. As a qualified teacher, I am returning to this professional. If it wasn’t for this decision I can confidently and honestly say, I would not work for another family. All things considered, I couldn’t have hoped for a better job or one that was so rewarding and left me feeling so content at the end of the day.

    It truly is a real pleasure to work for the H Family and you are incredibly fortunate if you get this opportunity.
