About this client/child:

Overview of role:

Both children attend school/nursery so the Nanny will have some free time before collecting Hannah from Nursery at around 12.00 pm. The core focus is surrounding child development, the family would really welcome someone who can bring new ideas or strategies to the table. Both parents have busy working schedules so they are looking for a Nanny they can depend on and someone who is looking to make a long-term commitment. The family are keen travelers and will be looking for someone who is happy to travel with them.
Who this job would suit:
This role will suit a calm, easy-going and experienced female* SEN Nanny who shows empathy and resilience during the more difficult times. You should be passionate about child development and happy to invest your time and energy into the role. A Nanny who can be creative and think of engaging ways to support Millie with her physical and social development whilst also making these activities enjoyable. A sense of humour is a must! You should also be an animal lover as both girls adore their pets and enjoy spending time with them.
What’s great about this job:
This is a wonderful opportunity to join a dynamic and fun family where teamwork is paramount. Both girls are at a great age where you can make such a positive impact on their future development. The family are happy to offer further training for the right candidate.
