About the job

We are looking for a patient, kind, and knowledgeable full-time Italian, Spanish or French speaking nanny with at least 6 years’ experience working with babies from 4 or 5 months to support first time parents. The parents are both professional, understanding, and supportive and would like to find a nanny who can guide them with caring for their gorgeous baby daughter who was born in early May.

They would like a nanny who genuinely loves her job, is interested in early development and is passionate about working with babies. As they are first time parents, they are looking for a nanny who can offer advice and support, including help with sleep routines and weaning when the time comes by introducing the baby to a variety of healthy food. They would also like the nanny to be very developmentally focussed and support their baby to meet all her milestones, plan appropriate activities for her, introduce her to new experiences and be proactive in finding stimulating activities or playgroups for her to attend as she gets older.

They need someone who can be flexible, hardworking, reliable, and happy to adapt to the parents needs as they go through their parenthood journey. It is important you are happy to work in partnership with the parents and be comfortable with the mum being around in the first few months as she gets back into her work.

Someone who enjoys cooking fresh healthy meals is a plus and they need their nanny to travel a few times per year for 1-2 weeks at a time. You need to be Covid vaccinated and able to swim.

The family can offer fabulous accommodation for the nanny if they need this. You would be provided with a gorgeous one-bedroom apartment with a balcony which is 10 minutes’ walk away from their home in central London. Live out is also great for the family if you don’t mind commuting to their home each day.
