Ref PBS – St Albans

A family moving to St Albans require a flexible nanny for a minimum of 15 hours per week. Both parents work varied schedules – known the week before – so this would suit a NWOC who wants a part time role and doesn’t mind which days she works!

A usual week would be Monday and Wednesday but there are occasions (once every few months) where you would need to work a full week (40 hours), so this wont suit a nanny with a second job.  They can be very flexible in return and are keen to find a lovely nanny (and her own child is very welcome) to stay long term as part of their family. January start.

They pay for a base of 15 hours per week (if you worked less you still receive this pay). Any additional hours paid as extra (salary £11-13gph). The hours will be between 8am and 7pm (some days 8-7, some 12-7).

This is a sole charge position, Ofsted registration is required (they will pay registration fee) and a driver with own car is a must. They have no pets, the role includes typical nanny duties only and they are very happy to accept a NWOC.

This position is term time only, although they can offer some work in the holidays if wanted.
