Australian/Romanian family living in Osdorp need a full time nanny for their two month old baby. The family have been living in The Netherlands for the past four years. You will be working 40 hours per week, Monday - Friday from 10 - 6pm. They might ask for the odd night of babysitting but it’s very unlikely. 

Ideally the nanny will be able to start ASAP however they can wait until the end of October at the very latest. 

The baby boy is very easy going, the parents are working on creating a routine as the family loves structure. He loves being cuddled and observing the world around him.

All nursery duties are part of your responsibilities. Also cleaning and organizing the bottles and eventually batch cooking and helping wean the baby on to solids. Keeping the changing areas, baby bedroom and toys clean and vacuumed on a very regular basis. Taking in Albert Hein delivery is one of the nanny duties. You are not required to cook for the parents as they both enjoy cooking however they would like you to prepare vegetables for them.
