Nanny / Mother's Help (35-40 hours a week) Ref: KDTB:SP:LO:FSTAN - Fenham, Newcastle upon Tyne NE$

Closing date: 31 Jan 2020

A fabulous nanny/mother's help is required for a lovely family who will be living in Fenham. The family have 3 children, 2 little ones aged under 1 year, and an 11 year old. The role will be to assist in the care of the babies, whilst mum attends to the school run for the oldest (and vice versa).

The chosen person will work alongside mum, providing an extra pair of hands with the general care of the children, as well as some light household tasks around the family home.

Duties may include:

  • Attending to the daily needs of the children
  • occasional school drop-offs and pick-ups (alternating with mum)
  • preparing healthy meals
  • sterilising bottles, preparing baby feeds, weaning
  • organising the children’s daily schedule
  • keeping the home tidy and organised
  • some light housekeeping duties
  • the children’s laundry and ironing
  • supporting with homework
  • taking the children to groups and activities
  • outdoor walks, trips to the park, picnics, etc.
  • bath and bedtime routine
  • keeping the children’s bedrooms tidy and organised

Mum will be home most of the time, therefore there will be some sole change care involved. Evening babysitting would be most helpful too.

This would suit someone with a positive 'can do' flexible attitude. This is a lovely family environment and would suit a nanny who has flexibility, warmth and nurturing, someone energetic with creative ideas for stimulating the children's learning and development. The family are looking for someone who will become like a member of the family and will be with them for the long term.

The position offers around 35 hours per week, focussed between Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, however flexibility is required to cover some Mondays and Fridays according to Dad's work schedule. The position is available to start as soon as the right person is available.

A driver is preferred, however is not essential. The family have 2 dogs.

The family are temporarily living in Gateshead, however will be moved back into their home in Fenham before Christmas.
