A lovely family with 5year old twins near in Lacock, Wiltshire (near Bath) are looking for a full time live in nanny to join their family.  This is a very generous salary role.

Family Background
The family lives in a beautiful large converted barn with 5 bedrooms. The mother is a banker and travels a lot internationally, the husband works a lot from home but will not be focused full time on the children during his work and is very busy himself, therefore this is mostly a sole charge role. They have a housekeeper who is responsible for all the cleaning. They also have a weekend nanny who arrives on Friday evening.

This is a 24/5 role, you will be completely and solely responsible for the school run in the morning and afternoon. School hours start at 830 and finish at either 325 or 445. Whilst the twins are at school there won’t be many tasks besides keeping the children’s’ area tidy, you will also be cooking for the kids. You should be pro-active in organising things and activities for the girls and we on call 24 hrs during the Monday – Friday week. The parents are not strict, but manners are very important to bring across to the twins. They do not want them to grow up spoilt so you should be comfortable in setting strict boundaries when needed but leave them the freedom to develop and grow. As the role is mostly sole charge, you should be able to run the schedule of the girls and take control of this. The family tend to travel for 4-6 weeks over the summer holidays (usually to the US) and would like a nanny who is willing to travel with them for at least one month.

The family live in Lacock, 10 miles from Bath in Wiltshire. This is considered one of the most beautiful places in the UK to live, and you will be surrounded by natural beauty.  This is a live in role and your accommodation will be a large double bedroom with en-suite, with your own TV/wifi. It is next to the playroom so you will have that space in the evening.  You are welcome to stay in the property over the weekend, or depart for the weekend if you prefer - the family are completely flexible as this will be your private room.

This is a 24/5 role Monday to Friday. On the odd occasion when the girls are poorly or the weekend nanny is running late you would be expected to stay on your shift but this is rare. The family travel over Christmas without a nanny so you would have 2.5 weeks off over Christmas/New Years as a general rule.

You should speak a high level of English.

Special Skills
You must be an experienced and active nanny, you must have a driving license for the school run. The family has an automatic car you can use for the school run and errands when needed.  You should also be extremely organised and good at admin to help the father with daily tasks as he works from home.

Package Offered
Up to £750 net a week depending on experience. (£54,365,- gross p/a).  

Interview/Start date
The client is keen to start interviews and considering candidates for start ASAP.
