American family looking for a nanny for their 10 month old little girl. The family can be flexible on the days but would prefer one of the day’s to be a Monday and not Friday’s. The Mum would love a nanny who is happy to be very flexible and potentially change the days each week but this isn’t a requirement. There is the possibility of extra hours in the evenings or on the weekends.

The nanny needs to speak fluent English. It’s a bonus if she is also either a native Spanish, Italian or Dutch speaker.

The ideal nanny will be safety conscious, extremely reliable and punctual. Candidates must have professional experience caring for baby’s and have an understanding of child development. You need to be confident in planning stimulating educational age appropriate activities. 

The baby is very social, active and loves cuddles. She currently attends local classes, goes to the zoo and library. The family are keen for you to do these activities with the baby. They would also love you to organise playdates. 

The Mum will be around at times but this is a sole charge role. You need to be confident using your initiative and happy to work independently. The baby is very attached to her Mum so it’s important you are confident in helping the baby adjust to having a nanny. She is in a structured daily routine that you will need to follow.  

The Dad is currently working from home but normally is based in an office out of the house.

Part of your responsibilities will be all duties related to the baby including laundry and cooking the baby’s meals. 

The family has an organised structured household. They currently live in the centre of Amsterdam but will be moving to the Pijp in the summer.

There might be the possibility of travelling with them for short trips in Europe. This isn't a requirement of the job.
