Part-Time Nanny – Silverknowes, Edinburgh EH4 – 18 hours per week

Job Reference: LCSJULY11

This lovely family are looking for a permanent part-time nanny to look after their 5 year old.

Starting with them before the schools return mid August 2022.

The hours of work are 18 each week:

Tuesdays to Thursdays 1.30pm to 7.30pm

Occasional evening babysitting may be required but will give at least 48 hours of notice for this.

The successful candidate will start at approximately 1.30pm and take care of the usual nanny duties such as their child’s laundry and preparing her meals before school pick up at 2.50pm. After school will consist of supporting with homework, doing fun activities, giving her dinner, supervising bath time and getting her ready for bed. One or both of the parents will arrive home around bath time.

Their daughter is a bright, sociable, articulate and curious child who has strong opinions but can be reasoned with especially when making it a game. She loves animals, facts and numbers and has a great imagination. She enjoys helping with cooking. Flexibility to take her to after school activities may be needed but likely not until 2023.

The successful candidate will have a great sense of fun and be curious about learning too. Someone who is organised, practical and candid and is able to reinforce the rules that the parents have set for their child. Someone who is a little sporty and adventurous would be great as would a Spanish speaker as their daughter has expressed an interest in learning this. However this is not essential.

Non smoker is essential. Driver is highly desirable.

Dad is a shift worker and will occasionally be at home at the same time. It is likely that their daughter will want to spend time with dad on these occasions and their nanny will be made aware of this in advance. Help with other child related tasks would be much appreciated at these times e.g. helping to sort through clothes and toys.

Hourly rate is £14.
