Bordon (soon Arford) (GU35): nanny between 33 and 55 hours a week

A full-time kind, professional, competent and trustworthy Nanny/Housekeeper, is required for a lovely family of six who are currently based in Bordon GU35, but will be moving to Arford GU35 in June 2021. The family have 4 children; two sons aged almost 10yrs & 3yrs, and two daughters aged 7yrs and almost 2yrs.

  • Days and hours: The role can be flexible for the right candidate, 3-5 days a week 8am-7pm.

The nanny would start the day with the two youngest children at home, giving them breakfast and getting them dressed, the morning will be spent cleaning or looking after the younger children; the 3yr old attends a local nursery 3 mornings a week. Mum is often at home – so this isn’t always a sole charge role, each day will be different – maybe taking the younger children to activities, the park, walks etc, or staying at home either with the children or for domestic duties.

The youngest child naps after lunch, so this will give you time to finish any housework and/or prepare the evening meal. The afternoons will be spent with the younger children whilst Mum collects the older two from school and does clubs/playdates etc.  Each week will be different – some more childcare focussed than others.

There can be a degree of flexibility around the working hours, but 3 days a week is the minimum. There is also the option of babysitting, as and when required, and joining the family on holiday.

The family are looking for someone who is positive, energetic, efficient, organised and hard working. The successful candidate would be someone who is happy to have fun and get grubby with the children – with lots of energy! This is a long-term position and the family hope to find someone who can become part of the family.

You will be required to have previous experience caring for young children and as a housekeeper. You will also need to be a confident driver with a full clean license. In addition, you will need paediatric first aid and a current DBS check. This is a live out position.
