Temporary Positions

This is a really easy role, very happy to accept a NWOC – the parents usually use au pairs when they need short term cover and the kids are very easy going and used to having someone new. They have three children aged 8, 10 and 13.

You would walk to the local school to collect the youngest 2 (eldest gets himself home) for 3.15pm, do homework/music practise, give them tea and mum is home by 6pm. You don’t need to be a driver, and there are no pets in the house.

Mum is having an operation so will be home but needs the nanny to take charge, and keep on top of all the day to day stuff with the kids and the house. This is a really lovely family I have worked with before.

You must be a driver with a car for work use, and have experience of multiples and babies. Salary is around £600-650 gross per week. Wont suit NWOC.
