A family with 4 children, a girl and 3 boys, aged 10yrs, 13yrs, 15yrs and 17yrs old are looking for rota nanny to support them.  The parents are divorced.

This new rota nanny would be working with the father and the children when they are at his home every other week.  The family also have a small dog so you should be happy and confident around dogs. You will care for the children and be educationally driven. The family travels a lot and you should be willing and happy to travel with them. The father has homes in London, Switzerland and France which they visit. Both homes are fully staffed so you will be solely focused on caring for the children.
