A friendly American family based in New York state seeks an experienced nanny/governess to help take care of their 2-year old son.

Mom is home and on hand to help out when required. The little boy attends some classes and his parents would like a well-educated nanny/ governess with knowledge of a second language to take care of regular nanny duties and to help support his educational development.

The nanny/ governess can live in or out according to agreement with the family – this is a Monday to Friday job, from 7am-5pm or 8am -5pm for a total of 45-50 hours per week, with occasional weekend support if required.

The family are animal lovers and there is a dog living in the family home.

The candidate:

The parents are keen to encourage a second language if possible, perhaps Italian, Spanish or Chinese. French and Russian languages may also be interesting, although the candidate should speak fluent English and have the right to work in the USA.

The ideal nanny will stay with the family long-term and be a calm, work-focused professional with a positive attitude.

A car is available if the nanny requires one, and a driver can be provided if the nanny is not ready to drive herself.
