East Finchley (N2): after school nanny/mother's help 25 - 35 hours a week

A lovely family of four (and a cat) based in East Finchely N2, are looking for a warm, loving, kind, bubbly and enthusiastic long-term, after-school nanny / mother’s help to work 23-25 hours weekly (light housekeeping duties would be a huge bonus). Someone local would be preferred.

You’ll be someone who will enjoy playing with an energetic and active 4 year old who loves exploring and adventures (including climbing)! The 10-year old is super-sweet, and needs to be engaged with activities so that he doesn’t end up spending too much time in front of the screens and doesn’t feel left out. He needs some supervision with homework too. The perfect nanny will enjoy working with children and will want to have fun with the boys!

  • Start date; ASAP for the right person
  • Days / Hours; 23-25 hours weekly. Monday to Thursday: 3pm – 8pm and Friday 3pm – 6pm. Babysitting may be required on occasion.
  • Salary; based on agreeing 25 hours weekly; £18,200 gross annually (£1,516 gross per month) depending on your experience and qualifications.

On the housekeeping/mother’s help side (less important than the above), someone who is organised and efficient and can make suggestions on how best to organise things, someone who is happy to help out with keeping the home under control and take some of the pressure off mum and dad.

  •  

There’s a bit of flexibility e.g an earlier finish one day but making up hours via babysitting on a Saturday night for example.  Mum’s timetable varies from term to term, and occasionally might need a later finish, but would make sure that any variation to the 3-8 pattern on specific occasions was agreed well in advance.

Main duties will be picking up from school / pre school.  There may be the occasional playdate to manage. You’ll manage activities such as going out to parks and woods locally, playground for the little one and football/ball sports with the big one. When looking after the boys at home, it would be great to do a range of activities with them (reading stories, arts and crafts, Lego/magnatiles, baking, music, etc, etc.)

On certain days, Grandma will be helping with the children (at the moment on Mondays and Thursdays) so on those days, housekeeping might be more important. Grandma is in her 70s, so as neither parent is around, it will be very nice for her to have help with the two boys. You’ll manage and prepare an evening meal for the children (and extra for parents if the nanny doesn’t mind….the family all eat the same and it’s all simple cooking).

Light housekeeping: some tidying and organising around the house (sometimes just helping mum with a task e.g. sorting out the cutlery drawers or towels, etc). Loading and unloading the dishwasher, changing the sheets once a week, helping with the laundry.  No deep cleaning, as they have a cleaner who comes once a week (although if the kitchen needs a light once over at the end of the day, that would be very helpful).

A driver is not essential for this role, parking is available on their street from 3pm. *Hours will remain the same during school holidays. Please note you will need the following or willing to have: an enhanced DBS (updated within the last 12 months), Paediatric first aid, at least 2 years childcare experience working with children of these ages and excellent checkable references.

Please contact jessie@happyfamiliesnannies.co.uk for more information or to apply.

East Finchley (N3): nanny/housekeeper 30 hours per week

A lovely returning client of mine is seeking a very warm, nurturing and patient part time nanny (inc light housekeeping support) to work over four days. The nanny must be a confident driver. A car is avail to use. Their two beautiful children are aged 6 (boy) and 3 year old (girl). The family are based in East Finchley, N3.

  • Start date; Asap for the right person 
  • Salary; Up to £28,000 gross annually depending on your skills and qualifications (£17-£18 gross per hour)
  • Days and hours; 30 hrs a week in total. 28 hours per week plus 4 hours of baby sitting (one night every other week). Midday to 7pm Monday through Thursday. The nanny has the option of doing some housekeeping on Friday mornings, if they wanted shorter hours on one or two of the other days. 

Responsibilities would involve a mix of laundry, cooking, errands and light cleaning such as emptying dishwasher, taking clothes to dry cleaner, running small errands in the neighbourhood, folding clothes, general tidying up of the house. (The family have a cleaner once a week to do heavy duty cleaning).  

The nanny will collect the youngest child at 3pm from nursery (Hampstead Garden Suburb) and their son between 3.15 and 4.30 (local school) depending on after school clubs. During the rest of the day, responsibilities would involve doing things with the children, such as taking them to the park, managing play dates, taking the kids to their music lesson in Muswell Hill, playing at home, baking, arts and craft, before giving them their bath and getting dinner ready for the family around 6.30pm. 

Mum usually picks up the kids on Friday afternoon, but if the nanny preferred to have shorter days on the other days, some of the housekeeping could be done on Friday morning too. 

The perfect nanny will be very warm, nurturing and patient with children. A creative person who does a variety of things with the children after school would be essential. Someone very organised and a tidy person, a resourceful and respectful person who understands how the household is run and contributes to it through its own initiative over time. You will have a valid paediatric first aid certificate, a valid enhanced DBS certificate and excellent checkable references.

You will need to be organised and alert at all times.
 
During the time you spend with the family, light nursery duties will be welcomed but only if time permits. This can include doing the children’s laundry and keeping their play areas and bedrooms tidy. You will need to be a confident and experienced cook as we would like you to make the children’s dinner and not be intimidated by ‘picky eaters’. All activities are within walking distance and you will need to be happy to take them out to these.
 
Ideally you will have at least 4 years experience working with young children with at least 2 years experience in a domestic setting. Experience with twins would be a plus. You will need a valid enhanced DBS and paediatric first aid certificate or be willing to obtain one. You will need to provide excellent references.
