Job details

British family with a five year daughter and son due end of May 2021 are searching for their first ever nanny. The days required are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and potentially a half day on Wednesday mornings. The hours are currently 9 - 6pm this may vary slightly depending on when the parents return to working in the office. 

The exact start will be confirmed, the Mum is returning to work in September. Both parents will be around to do a few weeks handover.

Currently both parents are working from home however this is a sole charge role. They will drop the five year old at school, the nanny will need to collect the five year old either on the tram or bakfiets.  

The five year old attends Dutch school full time. She loves football, swimming and is quite active. She loves singing and is a big Disney fan especially of the Mary Poppins movie. The little girl loves role play and it's important you are happy to join in with her games.

Arranging playdates, attending local classes and activities with baby and organise trips for the children are all encouraged by the family. Amsterdam De Bos is nearby. 

 

The family values routine, manners and encouraging children to help out. They encourage their daughter to have a growth mindset and would appreciate a nanny aligned with their views.


The parents have positive, upbeat personality's. So a positive, cheerful nanny who is also adaptable and very proactive is key. Finding a nanny they click with is a priority. Ideal candidates have a get up and go approach. 

Ideally the nanny will speak Dutch to the children and English to the parents however they will consider English speaking candidates. They are also interested in speaking with candidates who speak French or Spanish as well as English.

Cooking nutritious, healthy, balanced meals for the children and helping with wean the baby onto solids will be part of the duties. It's not vital you do the children's washing, you do need to leave the house tidy at the end of the day. The family has a cleaner. The focus is taking care of and being attentive to the children.

They will consider having one full time nanny or two part time nannies (part time job details job reference 2127).
