Part Time Housekeeper/Nanny Job near Great Missenden , Buckinghamshire
Our client, a lovely, outgoing and fun family of 6 are looking for a part time energetic, reliable and caring Housekeeper/Nanny to work 3 or 4 afternoons per week in their 7 bedroom country house in Buckinghamshire. They have 4 boys aged 10, 8 year twins & 4. They are an extremely active family who require another hands on person to help run the family home. They have lots of animals including horses, dogs, sheep, chickens and ducks so you must be animal friendly.
Mum is around but often busy with the horses and other jobs. The role involves mainly shared care. Being able to work as part of a team is paramount. The role will include occasionally picking the boys up from school, preparing small tea, helping with homework and taking to after school clubs if mum can’t make it.

You MUST have endless energy, enthusiasm, patience and an understanding of the dynamics of 4 boys and their humour. Their current nanny/housekeeper has been with them 11 years and is retiring. She is happy to be interviewed or shadowed. This is a fantastic role for the right candidate. Unfortunately, they are unable to accommodate applicants own children or pets. The family are looking for another long term person to join them, so only permanent applications only. No temps.
