A wonderful family in Berlin seeks an English or German speaking nanny/ governess to help care for and support their two young girls.
The nanny’s primary role will be to care for the kids when the parents are away, proxy parenting, taking care of the kids’ schedules and ensuring their general health, well-being and happiness are provided for.
The schedule will be based on 40-45 hours/ week, but it is important that the nanny is ready to work at weekends as both parents travel and work at weekends in the music industry.
The 8-year old attends school and the younger daughter will begin at pre-K at the end of the summer. Both schools are close to the family home in central Berlin. The candidate will primarily take care of the kids’ after school time (including collecting from school), and their hobbies, activities, scheduling and keeping them busy and active at weekends.
This role is to begin in July 2023. Initially the candidate will live-in with the family (unless the candidate has or can arrange their own accommodation, but this is not easy to find in Berlin!)
Cleaning is not required, there may be some need to prepare snacks or light food for the kids, or take care of occasional housekeeping tasks if parents are busy or away just to keep the house clean and tidy (there is a cleaner who comes in for the actual household cleaning).
We feel this is a lovely, arty, musical family that the right candidate will love working with.
The ideal candidate for this role will be a fresh, fun, positive and energetic nanny. The candidate will need to be flexible sometimes and should be ready to handle the girls’ strong personalities!
The kids are interested in martial arts, gymnastics, drawing, painting, music and art. The family also love football. An interest in these topics (particularly art and music) would be a massive plus.
No driving is required for this role – if necessary taxis can be used for work transport.
The candidate should have childcare qualifications and at least 5 years’ experience in a similar role. Excellent references and a full background check will be required.
