Nanny (German speaking)
London, Hampstead, Competitive Salary
Our client in Hempstead is seeking a professional, German speaking Nanny, who will be responsible for looking after their 3 children (twins, 5 years old, and a 2 year old). They are a very active family who love spending a lot of time outdoors, so you should ideally possess a fun and energetic nature.
This is a semi-formal household, so must be comfortable working within this kind of environment. You will be working alongside another Nanny and a child therapist so be prepared to work as part of a team.
A German speaking Nanny would be preferred by this family, as you will be required to only speak German to the children.
You must have gained an education in childcare, have a teaching background or studying towards obtaining a childcare qualification. Knowledge about child development is necessary, as you will be expected to engage the children in activities which stimulate and support them in reaching vital milestones. If you have had experience working with SEN children, this would be a bonus, but not vital, although you must be patient and very caring as one of the children has down's syndrome.
You will be responsible for the following duties:
Washing and ironing of the childrens’ clothes
Keeping the childrens’ areas clean, neat and tidy
Organising interesting activities within the home and externally, as well as taking the children to activities and playdates
Helping with their reading and writing in German
Ensuring the children are well-mannered and well-behaved
The family travel through school holidays so you must be flexible to travel with them.
Working days: Tuesday to Saturday (Sunday and Monday off)
Working hours: 8.00am-6.30pm
Salary: This will be in line with experience
