Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm ( flex to do 8.30-6 when needed).

Daily Nanny Positions

5 day positions

Ref LJC – Chandlers Cross

A truly lovely family near Rickmansworth require a nanny for a minimum of 32 hours a week (plus lots of babysitting, and more hours in holidays – this can really add up if wanted – if the right nanny needs a commitment of more hours, they’re happy to add contracted babysitting to total the hours you need -can commit to 45 + hours a week)

They have two girls aged just 4 and 14 months. The eldest is in school nursery full time.

The family employ a nanny (through Rosebud Nanny agency) Tues-Fri 7.30am-2.30pm, and are now looking for another nanny to take over at 2.30pm – so you’d work 2.30-7.30 Tues-Fri, and 7.30-7.30 on Monday (= 32 hours). The other nanny is term time only so they can offer more hours in school holidays plus lots of babysitting.

Mum works part time and is often around – this is a mix of sole and shared care so you must be happy to work alongside mum (who is lovely) but also work alone regularly.

The role is to start ASAP and is permanent. They are offering £11-13gph and the role is sole charge.

The family require someone with prior nanny experience with babies. You do not need to be Ofsted registered but must be a driver with own car for work use.

You must be an animal lover – they have two dogs, 2 cats, small animals and may get horses in the future. However there is no care required of the animals.

The role includes typical nanny duties, as well as taking the girls to groups and sourcing classes for them. The role would suit an active, outdoorsy, mature candidate and wont suit a NWOC.

 

Ref HAK – Harpenden – NO NEW APPLICATIONS

A family in Harpenden are seeking a full time nanny for their 3 children aged 2, 5 and 7.

The hours are Monday to  Friday 7am-7pm. They offer £11-13gph (£34-40k per annum)

This is a permanent, sole charge position (mum works from home 1 day a week and will leave you to it) to start ASAP – they can wait until Jan for right person.

The eldest two are in school. The 2 year old is in nursery 3 mornings a week, giving you a chance to do your nursery duties (they do NOT ask anything above child related chores).

You will be Ofsted registered (or willing to apply at family’s expense) and a driver, with own car for work use.

This position will suit a fun, crafty and outdoorsy nanny happy to source groups for youngest. Babysitting can be offered on occasion. Wont suit NWOC.
