Live in Nanny wanted in Chalk Farm

A loving family with four boys aged 2, 7, 14 and 17. The two eldest are away at boarding school so the focus is on the younger ones. The little one will be starting a French nursery in September from 9-3 Monday to Friday. Both parents are professionals so the job is mainly sole charge. The hours would be 7.15-7.15 Monday to Friday with the occasional half day on a Saturday. They also employ a cleaner for 15 hours a week. The family are looking for a highly competent and hands on nanny who is able to use their own initiative and get things done efficiently and in keeping with the family's standards. The ideal candidate must be pet friendly as the family may be getting a puppy in the future.

The house is detached and newly renovated. Accommodation comprises own sunny room with good sized single bed and own shower room. Underground heating so nice and warm. The nanny must drive and there is an automatic Mini Countryman to drive on duty.

Fluency in both written and spoken English are a must as the nanny will be helping the 7 year old complete his homework to a high standard.

Additionally, the ideal candidate will be a well-rounded individual. Someone who is confident, intelligent, energetic, flexible, highly organised, pays attention to detail, can multi-task, think and plan ahead, is tidy, patient, flexible, firm but kind, calm, warm and friendly would suit the family very well.

Duties include, but are not limited to, general nursery duties, keeping the home areas where the children play tidy and organised, cooking healthy and varied meals, mentally stimulating the children through play and/or fun activities.

ASAP start. Salary negotiable.
