A kind, reliable, caring and fun nanny/housekeeper is sought for a family of four based in South Harrow (HA2). The family comprises Mum and Dad, and their two children, a girl of 10 and a boy of 6.

  • Days and hours: 21 hours a week, to be worked over Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Hours could either be a split day (7am to 9am then 3pm to 7pm) OR 1pm to 8pm (a combination of each could also be possible – e.g. two days split day and one day longer day). 
  • To start: as soon as the right candidate is found, ideally ASAP
  • Salary: up to £15 gross per hour, depending on experience (annual salary of up to £16,380 for a 21 hour week).

If working the split day (preferred but not essential), your role would be predominantly hands on childcare, helping to get ready and taking the two children to school in the mornings, then collecting them at the end of the day (see below for additional detail).  

If working the 1pm – 8pm option, you would arrive at lunchtime and help with some housekeeping, to include laundry and ironing for the children, helping to prepare a family friendly evening meal, tidying up etc, and some general errands. 

You’d then go and pick the children up from school and bring them home, taking them to any after school activities they have (e.g. swimming), supervising homework and an evening meal. The family likes to be active, so a nanny who is happy to take the children out and enjoy physical activities would be ideal.  

Their little boy has some additional learning needs.  The nanny needs to be very patient and understanding, consistent and calm.  Some previous experience of additional needs would be a great bonus but is not essential.  You should also be a great communicator with parents and other adults (e.g. teachers, friends etc). 

A driver is required, and the family could insure you on their car for work – alternatively, you would need to be happy to use your car for work purposes (mileage reimbursed). You should have a recent DBS certificate, and an in date paediatric first aid certificate, or be willing to obtain these.
