Governess/ Nanny - Holland Park - ASAP

This family is looking for an engaging governess/nanny to look after their 11 year old daughter and 6 year old son.

The ideal person will be able to teach the children life skills, helping them to gain confidence and age appropriate independence whilst giving them the tools to learn and study on their own.

Your duties will include managing their daily routine, taking care of school runs (on public transport), overseeing their homework, planning activities and some tutoring for problem subjects.

Whilst the children are at school, you will be responsible for any child related admin, as well as doing the food shop and cooking healthy nutritious meals from scratch for the children (occasionally mum too). Mum creates a menu plan each week to follow.

The family spends their summer on the East Coast of the US and would like you to go out there with them for 4 – 8 weeks of this time. The children attend summer camp for part of the day, and you continue to work around a 40 hour week, Monday to Friday when out there. You will also have use of a separate house on the property for the duration, although other house guests may stay there from time to time too. They also travel over Christmas, but you would not be required to travel with them.

A housekeeper is employed in the afternoons, and can help with the school runs if necessary. You will be required to work 11am/12pm – 7:30pm, Monday-Friday, with some extra hours during the school holidays.

The family has one cat, so you must be comfortable working with animals around.

The ideal candidate will hold teaching a degree or similar.
