A reliable and caring person is urgently required for a lovely family in Ponteland area who are in need of help with the care of their two children aged 2 and 4 years. This is a before and after school/nursery position which offers 20 hours a week on a term time only basis. Currently both children attend nursery 5 days a week, and in September the oldest will start school.

The duties of the job will include:

  • attending to all the daily needs of both children
  • morning routines in preparation for getting the children ready for nursery/school
  • taking the children to nursery/school, ensuring they have everything they need for that day
  • Collecting the children from nursery/school or activities and taking them home

Essential hours required are 7.15am-9.30am and again 3.00pm-5.30pm 4 days a week, with the occasional need for a later finish at 7.30pm which will be known in advance.

The family can be flexible with hours for the right person. If the chosen person would be willing to do some general household tasks and the family will consider taking the youngest out of nursery for a full day or two per week. The family would like the youngest to remain in nursery 2-3 times a week for social interaction.

The family are needing someone to start mid April 2020 and would like the chosen person to be with them for the long term.  

A driver with own vehicle is essential, due to the location of the family and the school and nursery. Access to the Voluntary Ofsted Register is preferred but not essential.

This position would suit someone who is a confident driver and who is used to working in a rural location (10 minutes from Morpeth, 10 minutes from Ponteland).
