About the job
August start (although flexible for right applicant) in CONNECTICUT, USA: We are seeking a young, fun *Norland-trained Nanny* for clients in Connecticut USA. Please kindly note that due to strict USA visa laws the nanny needs to be under 25 to apply for the J1 visa and a confident driver is also required.
This will be a really fun opportunity for a Norland trained nanny who wants to see a bit of the world and get some overseas experience. Our clients currently have 2 children; G6.5 & B4.5 years with a new baby due in the autumn (Sept/Oct). The nanny will perform full child-related duties.
The children are close siblings, interacting well with each other and consequently like to do things together. They have a good social network and attend a variety of clubs & activities, with their school/nursery approximately a 10 min drive away. The new baby is due in the autumn and the family will be hiring a Maternity Nurse for the first three months. The nanny’s primary responsibility will be the baby but they should feel comfortable support/supervising all 3 children on occasion/when needed.
Our client’s preference would be an August start date, but they are flexible and could consider starting from August through to November for the right applicant. (For obvious reasons it would be more beneficial if the nanny has started well before the new baby arrives, but the family are open to later options.)
The nanny will have private accommodation on a separate floor to the parents. The family are based in a truly delightful location (New Canaan, Connecticut) which is close proximity to NYC and with good train links further afield - so the best of both worlds! The accessibility of NYC is easy, with the benefits of being based in beautiful city green belt with great shops, restaurants and activities. The local community is very friendly, sporty and athletic.
Our clients are professionals, though mum works part time. Dad can work very long hours and frequently travels domestically and overseas, so the nanny will provide support to mum. It will be a shared care role with both parties working to best support the children’s daily needs.
A driver is essential for the role and for the nanny's personal enjoyment (car provided). Some domestic travel (eg: family in Colorado, skiing in winter + beach in summer).
