Closing date: 30 Mar 2018

A lovely family in Gosforth are looking for a Nanny/Housekeeper to provide care for their little boy aged 2.5 years. This will be a mixed role of childcare and general housekeeping duties associated with a busy professional family. Flexibility is essential to work around the schedule of the parents.

  • Looking after all aspects of childcare, ensuring the child's happiness, safety and general wellbeing

  • Planning and preparing a range of healthy meals
  • Children's laundry duties
  • Keeping children's play, bedroom and general areas clean and tidy

The family have good established routines in place and they would like this to continue.

The main housekeeping duties will be on a Thursday when the little boy is in nursery. This will include:

  • Supporting the family with their household routines,
  • Supermarket shopping and errands
  • Keeping the home in good, clean and efficient running order
  • Family laundry and ironing
  • Some food left for mum when she returns from a busy day at work would be most appreciated

The family are looking for someone who  is flexible, with an energetic, bubbly personality in addition to someone who enjoys a variety active and outdoor activities. The family are looking for someone they can rely upon to be there and provide the best of care and support in a fun and relaxed manner.

Mum runs a very successful and expanding business and is looking for someone with a calming influence who will be happy to be with the family on a long term basis. Dad works away usually 6 weeks at a time and therefore as much support for mum would be appreciated, especially when she has to travel for business.

The position offers around 40 hours a week. Hours required are likely to be: Monday, Tuesday, Thursdsay and Friday working from 8.00am until 6.00pm (or 7.30am-5.30pm) There will be the occasional overnight requirement if both parents are working away.

A driver with transport is an essential requirement. The priority is finding the perfect person who has the right skills, experience and personality to suit this family.

The family are looking for someone with a positive, bright manner, someone with a proactive approach to working within a family environment. Common sense, great organisation abilities and a great level of energy and imagination to keep the little boy occupied would be most helpful for this family.  The family would like to have the nanny travel with them on some of their holidays.

Position to commence ASAP.
