Job Description:  Nanny housekeeper required for a family who will be welcoming their first child at the end of January 2021. The family lives on a large country estate so it is essential the candidate loves being surrounded by beautiful countryside and would feel comfortable working/living within a historic building. There are various other members of staff that help run the estate alongside the Father so there is the opportunity to work amongst a friendly team.

The role requires someone who is happy to split their time as needed between housekeeping and childcare (approx. 50% housekeeping 50% childcare), and it is important the candidate is experienced with both. Initially the Mother will be on maternity leave but would like some support with the baby potentially with some overnights. They would like someone who is bubbly with a positive ‘muck in’ attitude with excellent communication skills that can ensure the household runs smoothly, keeping all areas clean and organised.  When the Mother returns to work, they hope to have a mixture of their child attending a local Nursery and being cared for by the Nanny.

This is a great opportunity for someone who would like a long term position working for a lovely family in a fantastic location. They can be flexible on the start date; they would prefer to ensure they find the right person. At the earliest someone could start in December and help prepare the house for their new arrival or equally to begin once the baby has arrived.
