Are you a professional Nanny looking for a new exciting role?
A lovely family of three located in Virginia Water, Surrey (GU25) is searching for a professional and qualified Nanny to join their household. The main responsibility will be to look after their daughter born in January 2019. The little girl is very content, relaxed, happy and advanced in her development, and wants to feel safe and secure with the people around her. She currently attends nursery from Monday to Thursday (half days) and attends classes in swimming and acrobatics. The position is a mix of sole charge and shared care with some proxy parenting.
The family are looking for a nanny who is intuitive to their daughter’s needs, wants the very best for her and is confident to work independently. Ideally, they would like to work with someone who is confident (not overpowering) and proactive, has excellent communications skills, is switched on, super-efficient, calm and strives to deliver high standards at all times.
It is also important that the successful candidate is a confident driver with a clean driving licence as driving will be required for nursery duties (with access to vehicles provided). Their daughter also enjoys healthy home cooking and a varied palate (no allergies).
Travel in the role is non-negotiable and so it is essential that you love travelling, albeit they would hope that this would be viewed as a perk of the job with plenty of free time in overseas locations.
A team player and genuinely wanting to be part of their family is a must as other household staff are employed. You must also feel comfortable with all aspects of co-parenting. The ideal candidate would also be an animal lover as the family have 4 dogs and various small pets.
Working schedule: Mon to Thu/Fri, 48 hours per week with 2 x 24-hour cover, with flexibility for additional overnights (paid extra). When accompanying them on holidays, which is between 4 to 5 times a year, 24/7 care (committed to 24/7 care but taking rest when their daughter sleeps). Proxy parenting is required when the parents are travelling alone (a few weeks per year).
Starting date: ASAP

- Complete all nannying duties, shared/sole charge
