American/Finnish family just moved to The Netherlands are looking for a punctual, experienced nanny. You would be caring for a 3.5 year old and 11 month old. 

The days will be confirmed either Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday or Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.


This is a sole charge job. The Mum will be working from home at times but needs a nanny capable of using her initiative and being very proactive. 

A high level of communication is important. You will need to research fun local activities and plan appropriate educational activities at home. The baby thrives on structure and routine. The nanny needs to have a teaching and development focused approach. 

You need to be a confident swimmer. 

There is the opportunity for extra hours on the weekends and overnight every so often. 

Part of your responsibilities will be nursery duties and preparing dinner for the family. The family are vegan. 

The family might be interested in the nanny travelling with them for short trips in Europe. This isn't a requirement of the job. 

It's a bonus if you can drive (not a requirement). It's ideal if you can cycle a bakfiets. 

The family have just moved to the Netherlands so haven't confirmed where they will be living. They are hoping to move to Ijburg or Amsterdam. Once they have confirmed a house they are planning to find a local school which the 3.5 year old will attend.
