We are looking for nanny for our 4 year old daughter and 1 year old son in Dartmouth Park (NW5) to start late April. If possible we are keen to find someone currently undertaking Montessori training, or already qualified.

The role:

  • “Live-in” (accommodation provided but not in the family home)
  • Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays
  • 8:30am to 6:30pm
  • 25 days holiday (ideally taken during school holidays, but negotiable) + bank holidays
  • Providing care, activities and lunch for our 1 year old
  • Collecting our 4 year old from nursery (25 minute walk – from September she will be at a much closer school)
  • Small amount of housework (keeping kitchen and living room tidy over the course of the day)
  • Preparing an evening meal for the family (and staying to eat with us if you would like to)

Pay: £350 gross for 30 hours per week over 3 days with the option of extra hours of babysitting. This is equivalent to £11.67 per hour gross. There may be an opportunity to increase the hourly rate by taking care of 2 additional children (aged 3 and 5, attending the same local school) after school and during the holidays – if you are interested in this please let us know.

The role includes accommodation (two rooms – one could be a living room – and private bathroom) in a family member’s house approximately 30 minutes walk or bus journey away, conveniently located for both Camden Town and Kentish Town.

  • Has a current DBS and Paediatric First Aid certificate

  • Is energetic with a positive outlook
  • Is patient, kind and able to use positive discipline methods (rather than punishments)

  • Has at least 2 references for childcare work
  • Non-smoker
