Top Notch Seasoned Career Nanny NEEDED for HNW Pacific Palisades family with 3 kids. In this role you will be working hand in hand with a hand-on mom, caring for their adorable toddler twins and 5-year-old! You will be her right hand and provide support in all things related to the children, as well as ensuring the household is running smoothly. Schedule is Tuesday-Friday from 7am-7pm. Flexibility and dependability are KEY in this role; there is an additional full-time nanny who works Saturday-Monday, but if she is sick or on vacation, you will need to step in. The ideal person for this role is a strong team player, enjoys working with others, and is a strong and open communicator. Rate is $37-45/hr gross (depending on experience) + OT (on payroll). The highest rate will be reserved for veteran nannies with 20+ years of applicable experience or NCS/Baby Nurse candidates looking to make the shift to days.
The right nanny for this family has a can-do, ‘all hands on deck’ attitude, where no task is too big or too small. You should be a planner who is always one (preferably two!) steps ahead, anticipating the family’s needs even before they do. A typical day will include maintaining schedules, preparing simple healthy meals (family is vegetarian), preparing bottles, feeding, dressing, bathing, engaging in lots of play, planning age appropriate activities, assisting with light housekeeping (children’s laundry, dishes, general tidying, etc), running errands, and general family assistance. The older child will be in school during the day, at which point you will have the twins, but you must be comfortable caring for all 3 (although this would be a very rare instance). You should have a valid passport, be adventurous, resourceful, easygoing, and have experience traveling with families in the past – because they love to travel! You can plan to be gone 4-6 days at a time (4-5x a year) – next up for this family is Turks and Caicos in August! They have plans to travel over Thanksgiving as well and plan to bring both nannies with – you should be open and willing to work holidays, and will be paid time and a half!
They have adored their former nannies (so much in fact that they were actually their baby nurses first!) and are looking to add a warm, loving, thoughtful, engaging, playful, polished, proactive, and innately helpful individual to their team. All candidates must be dog friendly and fully vaccinated (Tdap, annual flu shot, Covid + boosters). You should be adept at reading a room, know when to step in and when to stand back, and always come to work prepared for the day ahead. If you are incredibly passionate about working with children, enjoy all ages and stages, are familiar with working 12-hour days, and are looking for a long-term position, don’t wait – apply TODAY!
