A private, busy, active couple in Austin is immediately seeking an energetic, bright, and experienced full-time Rotational Nanny to support the parents of a young infant. This role will support the family while in residence at their primary home in Austin, Texas, and will also travel frequently both domestically and internationally. The Nanny will report to the Lead Nanny on a team of three nannies to provide 24/7/365 coverage.
Ideal candidates will have formal infant and toddler development training, a passion for working with young children, and experience leading a collaborative nanny team. This position will augment the family’s nurturing, care, and companionship; and, in their absence, will supervise the child’s daily activities. This role will interface directly with the Family and serve as the gatekeeper for all things child related. The position requires a healthy level of confidentiality, collaboration, critical thinking, and flexibility, with the most essential quality being an authentic passion and love for children. Ideal candidates will also be fluent in Portuguese.
The Nanny must strive to create a fun, safe, and supportive environment for the home and a nurturing and trusting relationship with the child, parents, and support team. The candidate will be able to move about the residence seamlessly and genuinely enjoy engaging in active, imaginative, and age-appropriate play. The ideal candidate will intuitively assess family dynamics, possess a “no task is too big or small” mentality, and assist with various child-related household duties as needed. A warm, calm, outgoing, affectionate temperament is required. The candidate further will demonstrate a willingness to listen and learn and put the needs of the child and the Family first. The Nanny will report directly to the Lead Nanny and the parents and should expect to support them in person regularly. The successful candidate will possess an unwavering commitment to protecting the family’s privacy and confidentiality. The family is seeking a long-term placement.
This position is live-out (but can accommodate live-in if needed), full-time, and must enjoy frequent travel – both domestic and international. Candidates must be available to work evenings (including sleepovers), weekends and holidays as needed.
