Are you full of enthusiasm, energy and love a busy, ever changing varied position? Our clients are looking for a dynamic, switched-on and hard-working Live-in Nanny/Family Support, to work for a lovely Family at their home on the Wentworth Estate, Virginia Water, Surrey. Working in a very busy household there are many people to get on with, not just the children; other staff, extended family, and various guests and team members who frequently visit. An ability to understand the nuance between being friendly and helpful and when to discreetly withdraw to allow privacy are essential skills in this position.

The Nanny will take care of a G12, and B15 (who is home weekends from boarding school). Although Mum is hands-on and works from home, she travels frequently – requiring a responsible adult presence to provide mentoring & caretaking for the children in partnership as a family support.

Candidates will also be expected to help to feed, walk and groom 2 King Charles Cavalier Dogs – including vet or physio appointments, and with overnight responsibility when the Family are away. Any equestrian experience is also a bonus, as the daughter loves riding horses. Both kids are sporty, so a willingness to be active with them is a plus! Personal skills are engaging and fun and varied. Engage with the children on their terms football/riding/fragrances/cricket/movies/books and feed them; Cook or bake yummy food that the children will enjoy. The family are keen for them to improve the children’s  skills and independence with cooking so a nanny with a passion or interest to cook would be amazing.

Living quarters are an on-site flat with bedroom and en-suite bathroom (living room and kitchen shared with other staff during working hours) and a private entrance. A safe and confident driver is essential.

Duties to include;

  • Driving the kids (essential requirement)

  • Light cooking with the children

  • Household ordering and arranging appointments for the kids

  • Overnight responsibilities when the Family are away
