GHLS9 - SEPT
ALL-IN CAREER NANNY/FAMILY ASSISTANT NEEDED FOR A BUSY BROOD GROWING BY 1 IN GREEN HILLS!
This incredible family of 5 is about to add one more to their crew and is seeking a career-oriented nanny/FA who can specialize in infant care while also occasionally assisting with three older children G13, B10 and B8.
Covid scale: the children will be returning to school and both parents work outside of the home. They are seeking someone who is bringing little risk into their household and is only going on necessary public outings and mask-wearing in public. Since this person will be caring for an infant, they want someone who is very serious about safety, hygiene, and who they are interacting with outside of work to ensure the baby is safe.
Monday - Wednesday 7 AM - 5 PM, TH OR FR 7 AM - 1 PM (this will rotate based on the week)
Guaranteed hours: 40/week
Start date: September 19, 2020
Duration: 2-3 year commitment would be ideal
This family is so excited to welcome their fourth child, due in August, to their bustling family! Both parents are working professionals outside of the home, and need the support of a full time nanny whose primary responsibility will be the newborn, however, there will be an element of assisting with the older kids too as needed. They need someone who is willing to pitch in and help out wherever, and doesn't get overwhelmed easily. A flexible person who can be easy going and as helpful as possible is the one!
The older kids are really sporty, academically gifted, and really great kids. They will likely need to be picked up from school sometimes or dropped off at a sports practice. They're all fairly independent, but mom and dad would love their nanny to build relationships with all of them and bond. They see this looking like someone who can build a relationship with all the children and keep track of their behavior, step in when need be, refocus them on tasks that need to be done, but not someone who is constantly responsible for keeping them entertained or playing with them.
Most days the nanny will be responsible for all things baby related from feedings, putting down for naps, baby's laundry, etc. They will ask their nanny to keep track of feedings, naps, etc. and log that daily. It's been a while since their last baby (8 years!) so they'll get back into the groove of things, but they also have some tried and true schedules, etc that have worked in the past so they're wanting their nanny to be consistent with their parenting style.
Their ideal fit is someone who: has lots of energy to get through long days, is a self-starter and thrive on being tidy and organized, is on time and very reliable, likes a routine but can also be go with the flow, is an excellent communicator, and can be a trustworthy teammate for the next 1-3 years.
They would love someone who is open to taking their baby on outings once things are safe to do so. They're in Green Hills and very central to lots of child-friendly activities.
*Some overnight care for the baby only would potentially be required in 2021.
