Switzerland, Live in Nanny job in Mendrisio, separate accommodation


Lovely family based in the Italian speaking canton of Switzerland are scouting for a new nanny to join their family and look after their two daughters aged 8yrs and 5yrs. The family also have 3 dogs (collie, poodle and small size one) and the nanny will be happy to take care of them too. The family – single Mum – are looking for a nanny who can work in a team and assist with proxy parenting: this is very much a mix of sole and shared care.


Greycoat Lumleys has successfully placed the current nanny: the new candidate will be required to start in early April and undergo a two week handover with them.


The role:

  • 9am to 2pm break as the children are in school

  • 2pm to 8pm afternoon activities and bed time routine with the children.

  • At times, the nanny will be required to assist with babysitting in the evening.


  • The nanny will be responsible for nursery duties, including cooking for the children and taking care of their laundry. The family employ a daily housekeeper so the nanny will not be required to undertake heavy housekeeping duties.

  • The nanny will be happy to feed the dogs, allow them in the garden and also monitor their wellbeing.

  • The nanny will be required to travel when on holiday to Europe and skiing in the Swiss Alps.


The candidate:


  • The nanny will be able to drive and ideally swim as the family have a pool at home.

  • The ideal candidate will be dynamic, a real team player and will be of a happy and bubbly disposition.

  • Fluent English speaking will be required and fluent German will be a bonus.


Accommodation: self-contained apartment within the family residence - bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen.
