Rickmansworth (WD3): nanny 45 hours a week

An experienced full-time, permanent nanny is sought to join a family in Rickmansworth (WD3).  The family comprises Mum, Dad, their little boy (aged 3) and a newborn baby due in December 2020.  Therefore, an experienced nanny who understands the changing developmental needs of children and families would be a great bonus.

  • Start date: ideally early January 2021
  • Days and hours: Monday to Friday: 10:30am to 7:30pm (with some flexibility to offer a later start time for the right candidate)
  • Salary: between £28,000 and £30,500 p.a. (i.e. £12-£13 gross per hour), with precise positioning dependent on experience

The family is seeking a candidate who will initially assist and work alongside Mum for the first few months after the baby’s birth, helping with key nursery duties (children’s laundry, keeping the children’s bedrooms and play spaces organised, some cooking etc), as well as being able to engage and play with their little boy and the new baby.  Over time, the role will evolve, as Mum will be returning to work gradually (sometimes from home and sometimes out of the house), so you will have increased amounts of sole charge care although for the first year it is likely that she will not be fully back at work.

Their son is currently at nursery so you would collect him from nursery at the end of the day, bring him home and help with his dinner, plus being very hands on with the bath and bed time routine for both him and their new baby.

The family’s key priority is to find someone who is a great nanny, very engaged with the children and with experience of working with very young babies, and excellent experience of helping to develop and adapt a strong routine for newborn babies and upwards.  You should also be confident to prepare simple children’s meals (noting that their son is vegetarian).

You should have at least 5 years’ childcare experience including at least 3 years’ experience of working in a family home.  You should have an up to date DBS certificate and paediatric first aid qualification, as well as strong references from previous roles.  A driver is required, and the family can insure you on their car if this is preferred.

A really lovely and caring family of 5 based in Southgate, N14 are looking for a part-time temporary nanny (inc. some housekeeping) and confident driver who is kind, empathetic and nurturing to work until September. 

The role will then change depending on which school the child goes to and mum and dads work situation changes. Therefore, the position may continue depending on the nannies requirements. It’s likely the term tim hours will reduce. 

The family can provide a car (manual) for you to use if you are a driver, parking can be arranged 

The girls are 4 year old twins and a 7 year old. The perfect nanny will understand children’s feelings from their point of view. You’ll be a good role model in terms of manners, being kind, understanding and cooperative. 

  • Ideal days and hours as below (although there can be a certain level of flexibility).  Mondays and Thursdays 12pm – 6.30pm and Wednesdays 3.15pm – 6.30pmA total of 16 and a quarter hours during term time (33 weeks) and 7.30am – 6.30pm during the school holidays (19 weeks).   
  • Salary based on working 16 and a quarter hours term time and 33 hours a week during school holidays, will be around £14 gross per hour depending on your circumstances and experience.
  • Start date: ASAP for the right person

Once a week the day would be shorter, you’ll collect the twins from nursery at 4.30pm after collecting the eldest from school. During school holidays you’ll be happy to work there full days a week. You’ll manage all child related duties including meals (they don’t eat pork), snacks, tidying up after them, taking them on fun and educational trips, to the parks, doing arts and crafts, painting nails! making shops out of cardboard boxes and lots of imaginary play as well as lots of fun girlie activities! 

The family would appreciate you supporting them with some elements of housekeeping when you’re not focusing on the children, such as family laundry and ironing, managing dishwasher, tidying all areas of the home that the children use (bedrooms, play areas, kitchen) however this can be discussed and agreed depending on what the nanny enjoys/does not enjoy!
