Full Time Live Wanted in London

Posted: 13-03-2018
Place: Angel Islington

Hello! We are a nice, easy-going Islington family looking for a full-time, live out nanny (sole care) to look after our two lovely daughters. Our eldest is 2.5 years old and our youngest is 6 months old.
We're seeking a great fit for both our family and our nanny, with a relationship based on trust and open communication. We are looking for someone to care for our children 45-50 hours per week, Monday-Friday. The hours will generally be 8:30 am to 6:00 pm. We'd also love someone who was available for occasional babysitting outside of the core hours 1-2x/month.
We are looking for a bright, enthusiastic, and experienced nanny who will take a real interest in our daughters' development, as well as enjoy engaging with our children in various activities, from arts and crafts to sing-alongs to parks and play dates. We are a (mostly) screen-free home, and it's important to us that our daughters are actively engaged with people and always learning. Our toddler has been in Montessori nursery since she was 10 months old, so we are keen to continue some of the Montessori philosophy at home.
The role involves all the usual nursery duties, spending time with and preparing food for our two daughters, plus some very light housework (girls' laundry, cleaning up after playtime, etc.) as we like to keep a tidy home. We also have a super friendly French Bulldog, Napoleon, who would need an occasional walk around the block. Our oldest will continue in nursery part-time (15 hours/week), so we'd expect our nanny to help with drop-off/pick-up as well.
We are looking for someone with an easy-going and calm demeanor and a positive attitude, with a love for and experience with babies and toddlers.

Age: 24 to 40 years old
Minimum 2 years teaching or child care experience; experience looking after a baby is essential.
Childhood development education a major bonus.
Interest/experience in Montessori or Steiner philosophy of childhood development.
Fluent English (level C1 or better), fluent Spanish is a major bonus (we'd love our daughters to learn Spanish)
Very well-organised
Proactive with imaginative ideas for fun and educational activities.
Verifiable references in the UK
Must have a recent DBS check, ideally be Ofsted registered.
Must be eligible to work in the UK
Commute to our neighbourhood (Angel, Islington) max 30/40 Mins.
Comfortable around dogs.

Next Steps:
Are you reliable, responsible, energetic, organised/tidy and practical?
Please apply ONLY if you fit the above criteria, then submit:
1. A short note about yourself
2. Your CV with references
