Nanny required for a high-society family living in central Manhattan, New York. The family is very well known to the agency (over 30 years), and this is the 2nd generation of the family we have helped to find a Nanny for. The mother is a fashion designer, and the father is an international businessman.
The main duties will be for 1 child, aged 18 months. Duties to include the second child will commence when the baby turns 6 months. Maternity Nurse is booked for 6 months, with the baby due in August. When the Baby Nurse leaves you will have to be capable of taking on the baby as well, so all the normal knowledge of the milestones from 6 months onwards will be expected.
Duties for the 18 month old will include: preparing meals, nursery duties (no laundry), keeping the nursery tidy and clean, organising the daily routine, taking the child to activities, including daily visits to the nearby park. They occasionally travel to their second home in the Hamptons, which has a swimming pool, so you have to be able to swim.
Your working hours will be Monday 10am to Friday 10am. At 10 am on Fridays, you will be relieved by the weekend Nanny. Hours will generally be 12 hours per day, 7am-7pm, but you will be expected to stay in the family apartment while on duty. Flexibility is required.
On duty you will live in the family apartment and have a private bedroom. The bathroom will be shared with the child, and their room will be next to yours.
When you are off duty you will have your own private apartment which is in the same building.
To apply you must have a work history which shows commitment to long term Nanny positions. The client is not interested in a CV that shows numerous temporary posts.
