A warm and creative family of 3 based in Marylebone, London, W1 are looking for a new, long-term French-speaking rota nanny to join their family.

Package Offered

  • £50,000 - £52,000 gross per year
  • Rota position (2 weeks on 2 weeks off)
  • Live in accommodation will be provided for your 2 working weeks.

Family Background

The mother and father are both professionals and are very creative. The father travels a lot for his work and the mother works too but this role will be a mixture of shared care and sole charge.  They have a lovely daughter who is 5 months old who they would like to be multi-lingual and be brought up around English, Spanish and French languages.  They have a Spanish nanny who does a 2-week rota shift and they are now looking for a French nanny to work for the other 2 weeks, sharing the rota with the other nanny and having great communication and teamwork between the two of you. The family have 2  Pomeranians so you must be happy to be around dogs. The family also have a property in Yorkshire and often travel to a villa in Europe during the summer so there will be occasional travel with the family.

Duties

Your duties will be fully focused on the little girl.  You should be confident with babies, able to help them grow and develop and be confident with the different stages including weaning, potty training etc.  A big focus for the five-month-old is to integrate fun and stimulating learning games in French and to be able to grow up speaking fluent English, French, and Spanish.  In the evening, you'll be an extra pair of hands with the parents, helping with bath time and the bed routine.  You should be fun, patient, and most importantly have a love of children and their development and education.  Ideally, you should have an interest in education, or a background in teaching, able to identify learning patterns and help with the development of the language – the family have enrolled their daughter to start a Montessori nursery when she is older so if you have Montessori experience then this is a bonus.  You should be easy-going and willing to get stuck into family life and routine.  You should be well organised and flexible, and looking for a long-term position. The household is fully staffed, with 2 housekeepers and a chauffeur, so no housekeeping duties or driving duties are required and you will be solely focused on the little girl.

Location

This is a live-in rota role, the family will pay for you to commute to the property every 2 weeks for your rota shift. During your 2 weeks working you will live in the family property in the annex with your own bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living area.

Days/Hours

  • 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off
  • during your 2 weeks on working hours will be 24/7

Languages

You must speak fluent English and fluent French (spoken, written and reading).

Special Skills
