A lovely family well-known to the agency and travelling between Dubai, Italy and worldwide seeks a native-level English nanny to work with their son, aged 2 and a half.
The nanny will work in a rota with a Russian nanny, 2 weeks on/ 2 weeks off (14/14). During weeks on the nanny will sleep in a room nearby to the little boy and take care of him full-time – he sometimes gets hungry during the night. The little boy is well behaved and by all reports a pleasure to work with.
The nanny should therefore be comfortable travelling and ideally have a Schengen visa or passport that allows for travel in Europe. Some knowledge of Russian language would be a plus.
The candidate should have a minimum of 3 years’ experience working in a nanny position. Good references are essential. The candidate will provide the charge with emotional support when required, involve him in sports, games and educational activities and coordinate with other household staff.
The nanny would ideally be sporty and active and a confident swimmer. The candidate should also be ready to cook for the little boy and have an idea about a sensible food schedule appropriate to his age group.
The candidate should support his general development, including helping him to tidy his room and teaching him to take care of his belongings.
An educational background in childcare, nannying, child psychology, early years or similar is required for this role. Experience with the same age is imperative and the nanny should be comfortable with all aspects of this age group.
The schedule for this position is a 14/14 day rotation (with some room for flexibility), and extra pay for additional working days. For days ‘on’ the candidate will be live-in.
