A British/American couple with a 5 month old baby are temporarily living in the UK whilst they work on their current film (they are both in the film industry).  They are based in rented accommodation in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire and require full time support until they depart the UK at the end of February.

Family Background

Both mother and father work in the film industry, with their full time home in Las Vegas.  They are currently based in the UK on the current movie they are working on, and are ideally looking for full time support for their 5 month old baby.  The baby is bottle fed (formula) and the mum has just started introducing baby rice in the morning.  They have no pets.  They are an easy-going, kind and warm family, who just need the support to provide them with care of their little baby.


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 are late on set.  The mum is very involved with the baby, and she likes to do the morning and bath time routine.  Occasionally the parents work later in the evening and then babysitting will be required.


The family live in rented, temporary accommodation in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.  Ideally they would prefer the nanny to live out, so you should be able to commute to work, but if you require live in, this can also be considered.


5 days a week.  The parents schedule changes each week, so they would agree fortnightly when the call times are scheduled which two days off you have each week.  You will always have two days off, but they will change each week.  You'll be working 8am-6:30pm each day.


You should speak a good level of English.  If you speak French this is a plus!

Special Skills

You should have a driving licence in case of any driving duties required.  

Package Offered

  • £500-600net a week (£34-£42K gross per year)
  • Expenses/petrol contribution if you use your own car to take the baby to activities.

Interview/Start date/Finish date

Interviews taking place soon with ideally a start date ASAP.  The family leave for the US at the end of February 2018
