New clients in urgent need of a new full-time live-out nanny for their two children - a boy aged 6 and a girl 4. There is also a family cat! They are looking for a really outstanding nanny who is educated and intelligent, and can use initiative and be pro-active.
From their perspective, the ideal candidate would be:
a person with a degree (or equivalent educational achievement). They need to be literate, numerate and have an interest in and engagement with the world around them; The children are very active so the ideal candidate would have to be energetic and fit;
someone with a background in teaching or, if not, a person with an established track record in providing childcare for school-age children. So, for instance, they want someone who can and will supervise the children’s homework;
someone who can demonstrate a track record of being committed to and staying in jobs (this wouldn’t necessarily need to be in nannying, but they would not want someone who had moved job every year or two;
someone who speaks fluent English. If the nanny is not a native English speaker, they would be particularly interested in French or Spanish speakers;
someone who is loving. It would be crucial to them to find someone who they can trust like a family member;
someone who can work alongside mum in the first instance. Mum is looking to return to work and is looking to start a new job imminently;
someone who holds a clean and valid driving licence. There is a manual car on duty.
Immediate start. Salary to reflect age and experience.
