A lovely mature couple are looking for a full time, live out nanny for their new born child (who will be 6 months old in November).  Due to the rural location, you should have a full driving licence and your own car in order to reach the property. As this is a live out role, you should ideally be within 1 hour to commute to Baslow.

Family Background

A kind and warm British family, the father's eldest daughter (fully grown) is a Norland nanny, so he is well versed in understanding how nannies work and operate.  The husband works full time, but often works from home, and the mother has two businesses of her own.  In November the wife is planning on going back to work full time.  As the husband can work from home, they need to have support to help with the baby, to allow the parents to work, and also ensure that the baby is loved and cared for.  They live in a beautiful park of the world in the Peak District in Derbyshire.  They have no pets at home.


Your role will be fully focused on the baby, who the family have already started to partially wean.  You should be experienced caring and looking after babies, understanding how to make fresh foods, nap times, routine and bottle feeding (the baby is formula fed).  You should understand baby development and the different phases they go through, and understand how to provide a caring and nurturing environment for them.  Your duties outside of direct childcare will be related to the baby, from preparing food, doing the baby's laundry and tidying up the baby's room, ensuring nappies are re-stocked.  Being helpful about the house is a must, but you won't be required to do any housekeeping - your role is focused solely on the care and attention of the child and the associated duties.  There will be rare proxy-parenting where you might be asked to stay overnight if the parents want to have a rare getaway together.  There might also be occasional travel with the family.


The family live in Baslow, Peak District.  An amazing beautiful part of the world.  Due to the location you should drive and have your own car.


Monday to Friday 8:30-6pm.  The family would like flexibility to do babysitting and occasional evening, or weekend (when agreed in advance)


You should speak a good level of English.

Special Skills

You should have a driving licence and own car due to the location of the property.

Package Offered

  • 25K-30K (gross) depending on experience.  The family are prepared to pay a good salary to ensure that the precious baby is loved and cared for.
  • Expenses/petrol contribution if you use the car to take the baby to activities.

Interviews taking place soon with ideally a start date ASAP
