Full Time Nanny Job – near Dunbar, East Lothian
The start date is 1 st September 2022.
Salary £35,000-£45,000 per annum depending on experience and qualifications.
The hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm plus babysitting one day per week. There will also be
occasional overnight stays and travel with the family. Some flexibility may be required with
occasional earlier starts of 8.30am and later finish times (babysitting as above with usually at least
one weeks’ notice or more).
The family have two children ages 2.5 years and 2 months. For the first year the nanny will mainly
care for the family’s oldest child who is an independent, sweet, sensitive, intelligent and lively child.
She is tri-lingual and loves nature, animals, crafts, outdoor play, singing, dancing, reading books,
painting and playing with her friends. She will attend nursery 2-3 mornings each week and at that
time the nanny will help with the baby and the other usual nanny tasks.
The family are looking for a reliable, experienced nanny who loves being outdoors and who ideally
has an interest (or has trained in) alternative educational approaches such as Montessori, Forest
Schools and Steiner. The successful candidate will be a confident driver with good self-awareness, be
open and able to ensure transparent communication – this is very important for the family.
The family live in a rural setting. A car can be provided. There is also an opportunity for this to be a
‘live-in’ nanny position at the family’s cottage, a 20 minute drive from the family home. This would
be rented for a trial period of three months initially. Partners are welcome but unfortunately it is not
suitable for children or other dependents.
