You will generally be responsible for getting the boys up and ready for school, dealing with school runs, overseeing their homework, organising their schedules, liaising with tutors as well as standard duties such as keeping their areas neat and tidy, dealing with their laundry and prepping their meals.
The parents would like you to instil good manners in the children, concentrating on their etiquette and ensuring they are smart and presentable at all times.

You will generally work Monday to Friday, 7am to 9pm with a break during the day whilst the boys are at school. You will also be required to work up to 20 weekends per year when the parents travel.
