This is a lovely role for a family in Hinchley Wood. Mum is now on maternity leave and will be stay at home. We are looking for someone who is an experienced Housekeeper (60% of the role), but who is great with the children too. This is a 4-bedroom, 2.5 bath, family home.
In terms of the housekeeper side of things, we need someone who is practical, helpful, initiative taking, confident with small babies, can become one of the family, need someone to take the lead on making sure the house is sorted, organised, efficient and can treat the home as if it was their own.
In terms of the nanny part of the role, the older child can be a bit shy and sensitive, so we need someone who is kind, confident, bubbly but patient enough with her to let her get to know them.
The family do have and parent through encouraging the correct behaviours rather than attempting to punish the bad ones (although reprimands have their place as well). They need someone who can wrangle toddlers through kindness, logic, fun and getting them involved.
Duties will include:
Cleaning the entire home
Laundry and ironing
Other essential jobs such as clearing out the fridge
Shared and sole charge childcare
The first few hours would be predominantly housework, not childcare as Mum is at home with the baby. However, at school pickup - may need someone who can look after the baby alone for 1 hour or so until Mum can go collect the older child from school, bring her home and be an extra set of hands with mum to help change / watch one child whilst mum is dealing with the other one.
On occasion it may be part of the role to walk to collect the older child from school (school is 15-18 min walk away depending on toddler walking speed) and bring her home and feeding her dinner.
This is a great role for an experienced Housekeeper Nanny. As Mum is home, you will be happy to work
In a team with Mum. We need someone who can make suggestions and take initiative and discuss ideas with Mum on how to manage the household.
