About this client:
Kira and her partner Andre will soon to be starting an exciting journey together as they become first time parents. Kira really enjoys cooking and prides herself in being very tidy and well organised. Kira had a severe brain injury 10 years ago and has some cognitive difficulties and chronic pain problems. She had period of depression in 2014 and is at risk of further depression postnatally. Kira is fully independent in all her daily routines and does not require any care herself.
Overview of role:
We are looking for a Nanny who can support new parents, Kira and Andre. Their baby is estimated to arrive on the 24th of April and whilst Andre will be working from home to begin with, Kira will need additional support with all aspects of caring for her new baby. We will initially be looking for someone to spend 10 hours a week with Kira to help her in preparation for the baby. Once the baby has arrived this will increase to 20 hours a week over 3 days – days and times to be mutually agreed with the family. The Nanny will help empower Kira to become confident managing her baby and offer guidance, skills and techniques. You will have sole care of the baby when Kira needs to rest or sleep. The Nanny will also assist with managing the baby’s laundry, contributing to the smooth running of the household, being supportive and providing help as needed – for example, a food shop or making a meal or washing up or taking the baby out for a walk in the pram, while Kira rests.
Who this job would suit:
This role will suit an experienced, patient, and calm nanny with a friendly personality, someone who is able to provide advice in a sensitive and non-judgmental way. You will be a good listener and open minded to custom/cultural differences in baby care. You must be very experienced in caring for babies and have up to date pediatric first aid. Having some understanding of ABI would be helpful but is not essential. A driver with their own car would be desirable.
What’s great about this job:
This is a wonderful opportunity where you can share invaluable experience and guidance to new parents. In turn you will support and empower Kira and Andre with the right tools to enable them to look after their new baby with confidence. You will be well supported by a case manager who will be on hand to offer assistance when needed.
