The family are looking for someone to help maintain the general housekeeping of the entire house as well during ‘down times’ from the children. The family do have a weekly cleaner so this is an example of things that can be done during down times.

  • Children’s bedding / children’s clothing cleaned / baby nappies cleaned
SCHEDULE

The family do not have a daily schedule available yet, we would hope for the nanny to be flexible for the first month for everyone to get into a routine to see what schedule would work best for everyone.
  • The nanny would be required to do 1 evening of babysitting per week on average, this could be a weekday or an weekend evening
  • The family would like the nanny to come and help on a Sunday - If the nanny would prefer 2 days off in a row, just let us know and we can ensure this is always worked into a schedule. 
An example schedule could be some variety of: 
  • Monday OFF
  • Tuesday 11-7pm
  • Wednesday 12-8pm
  • Thursday 8.30-5.30pm
  • Friday 8.30-5.30pm
  • Saturday OFF
  • Sunday 3-9pm
HOURS & SALARY
  • On average 35 hours per week
  • There will always be the option for more hours when available this is the minimum amount of hours per week that we will include in the contract, that the nanny would be required to work / be paid for. The example schedules show more than the 35 hours already.
  • Agreed upon in advance, the employer can amend the average weekly hours to have additional hours one week, less the next if, for example the family is way travelling without the nanny.
  • Base salary would be based on experience per hour for first 3 months as a probation period, after review increase by 25-50p per hour and then an annual review thereafter.
  • overnight rates / daily rates / weekly rates for joining us on trips would be negotiated in the contract
