This family is a busy family and they need a nanny/housekeeper who can slot into the family and work with them all! They are pretty easy going to work for and they don't micro-manage. They do need someone who is confident in making decisions and asking for guidance/feedback, rather than expecting constant input.

You will be someone who will take initiative and assume responsibility for the children and the household during the week as the parents work long hours and often travel.

This role will suit you if you are a calm, loving and consistent nanny. The children are used to positive reinforcement, discussion of rules/requirements/problems and firm handling.
