Family Background

The family love to travel a lot, and are first time parents.

The child is currently being breastfed but will start the weaning process in July so you will then also be in charge to help and prepare food for the child.

You must speak a very good level of English. Any other languages are a bonus but not a must.

Special Skills
You must be an experienced nanny having worked with babies and young children, as well as being an experienced and skilled housekeeper who enjoys their work. If you are able to drive this would be a bonus, but not a must.
