24/5 Live-in Nanny Job, Kensington, London, £47,000-£55,000 gross per year, Starts February


Experienced live-in Nanny sought for family in Kensington for girls aged 5 and 3 and boy born in December 2019. The Nanny should be comfortable with shared charge as Mum is at home although her main focus is with the baby (they also have a Maternity Nurse employed for the baby). For the time being the Nanny’s main responsibility will be the 2 girls although eventually when the baby is weaned and both girls are doing full days at school the Nanny will also be responsible for caring for the baby too. The ideal Nanny will be loving, affectionate, discreet, patient, playful, funny and inventive and be a well organised self-starter. The family also employ a full-time live-in Housekeeper plus a weekend Housekeeper and a weekend Nanny.

  • School runs-the 5 year old attends school 8.15am-3.30pm and the 3 year old attends nursery 9am-1pm

  • Managing the children’s calendars/schedules and keeping the parents up to date including liaising with schools and organising doctors’ appointments etc.

  • Enriching the children developmentally and academically including homework support for the 5 year old

  • The Nanny should love reading and be able to maintain and keep up the children’s strong interest in books

  • Travel – The Nanny is required to travel with the family during school holidays

  • Salary – £47,000-£55,000 gross per year (£650-£750 net per week) depening on experience
