Temporary Positions

Ref JTP – St Albans

A family in St Albans require a temporary nanny to cover their nanny’s maternity leave. The length is not certain, likely around 6 months but may become permanent if the nanny chooses not to return.

The days are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday (fixed) 7.15-6.15 (could be slightly shorter, say 7.30-6).

They have two children, aged nearly 4 and nearly 6 – at present, the youngest is in preschool each morning (they ask for nanny duties in this time) – if the role goes permanent, from Sept 19, the role will become nanny/housekeeper, keeping the hours as they are now.

This is to start in January, and is maternity cover (length uncertain at present but likely around 6 months). The rate is £10-13gph depending on your qualification and experience, and parents often work from home but stay out of the way!

They do not require you to be Ofsted registered, you must be a driver – they provide a duty car, or you can use yours if you prefer.

The role includes nanny duties only (time in mornings) and they will accept a nanny with a school aged child who comes during the holidays.

 

Permanent Positions

5 day positions

Ref HMW – Ayot St Lawrence, AL6

A family in a rural location require a nanny housekeeper, Monday to Friday 8am-6pm.

Ofsted registration is helpful but not essential. You must be a driver with own car for work use. The family have two dogs and a cat – dog walking will be one of your duties during school hours.

The role wont suit a NWOC due to the housekeeping and school run (a 20 min journey) but they’re happy to accept a school aged child coming during the holidays.
