A lovely role in Harpenden working either 3 or 4 days a week (any days) 8am-6pm. The family have two girls aged 4 and 8, and are expecting a third in July.

Mum is home and will not return to work – however there will be lots of sole charge, either of the big girls (taking them on days out in the holidays, to playdates and clubs etc) and the youngest, as from Sept when girls are in school you’ll be welcome to take baby to groups and classes. Mum does not work but is very busy so will be leaving you to it a lot – and when she is home, shes very lovely!

The family have employed nannies throughout the girls lives so the girls are used to a nanny being in charge despite mum being home. This is a long term position (they want a nanny for 4+ years) and is to start ASAP, although they can wait until Sept for the right candidate.
