Our client, a professional Icelandic/Danish couple residing in Iceland close to Reykjavik, are seeking a Maternity / Travelling Nanny for their 3 month old. They are ideally seeking a Live-out Nanny, but would consider a Live-in Nanny too.
The couple are looking for someone to provide daily care, five days per week, 3 to 8 hours per day (flexible working hours, meaning sometimes the Nanny will take care of baby for a few hours during the day, and other times during evenings). They currently have a Night Nanny who comes in a couple of times a week but would like a full-time Maternity Nanny to assist with all child-related duties day-to-day.
You should be caring and compassionate, hardworking, and have the ability to work to high standards. Being independent and easily able to adapt is also desired.
All nursery duties are expected along with some of the following:
Taking care of the new-born when needed during the day and/or evenings
Occasionally running errands
Accompanying the family when travelling
Please note that the family do employ a cleaner so housekeeping and laundry duties will be solely for the child.
The family are looking to establish a potential long-term bond with the Nanny, so it is key that you are willing to offer the family loyalty and simply open-mindedness.
It is preferred that you possess the following:
Prior new-born and toddler experience
Fluent English speaker preferred (Icelandic, Danish or Mandarin would be a bonus...)
Full clean driving licence - but not essential
