Other duties that will be required would be tidying the kitchen after breakfast times, managing the dishwasher, occasional school drop off if you’re a driver. A car can be provided. 

You’ll be able to use your own initiative and have common sense, you must be very reliable, be attentive and physically fit. You’ll be a confident communicator with mum/dad to ensure you’re all on the same page with regards to taking care of their home.

Some prior housekeeping / cleaning experience is essential (3-4 years). Someone local would be a huge bonus. You’ll have a enhanced DBS certificate and excellent checkable references.

Farnham (GU9) - After school nanny 13 hours a week

An afternoon/evening nanny is sought to work within a family based in Farnham.  The family consists of Mum, Dad and their two daughters aged 6 & 3yrs.

  • Core hours are 13 per week, i.e. 3.5  hours a day, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 2.45pm – 6pm term-time (39 weeks a year).  Further hours will be offered during the school holidays (8 weeks a year) if agreed by both parties, the hours would be 7.30am-6pm for the 4 days.
  • Pay: up to £13 gross per hour.
  • To start: ASAP.

You will pick up the eldest daughter from her school in Farnham, which is around a 5 minute drive away from the family’s home (mileage will be reimbursed as you’ll need to use your own car). The younger daughter attends a day nursery during the hours the nanny will be working. Some days the child attends after school activities, you will support them in helping to prepare and take them to these. In the school holidays, full days can be offered to the nanny and will be spent with the eldest child either at home, on outings or activities.

The family is seeking a nanny who is responsible, kind and caring with lots of common sense and a ‘can do’ attitude, who is patient and organised.

The family will consider a nanny who needs to bring their own child to work with them, although ideally this would not need to be every day.
