Ref SGH – Great Gaddesdon

A lovely family near a Great Gaddesdon require a temporary (2-3 months) 3 or 4 day nanny/mothers help. They require a Monday and a Friday, and one or both weekend days. They can offer accommodation if the nanny prefers to live in, or the role can be daily.

You would care for a girl of 2 and new baby, who is due in February. The role is shared care whilst home but you can take eldest out, and there will be sole charge elements at home too.

The hours are 7am – 7pm, but can be shorter on the weekends (7-5?). The salary is £11-12gph (£12-13gph for weekend hours).

The position is to start in February, and is for a minimum of 6 weeks but more likely for 3 months, or could be a little longer.
