Girl Friday/Mary Poppins wanted – Holiday Job – 8th – 27th August 2013 : London

We are looking for an enthusiastic nanny to help us look after our two boys (4 ¾ and 1 ¼) for two and a half weeks this summer on the Isles of Scilly in Cornwall (from Thursday 8th – Tuesday 27th August). We are going on our annual summer holiday to some beautiful islands off the coast of Cornwall. It is full of simple pleasures: buckets, spades, and mucking about in boats. We are looking for someone kind, responsible, imaginative and with a highly developed sense of fun. The role, while primarily about looking after our two children, needs someone who is keen to get stuck in, has lots of energy and initiative and is inclined to help out with whatever is needed. This could include being asked to look after other children also. It will be a busy couple of weeks as we are arranging for many friends to visit, but we would expect it to be a fun and rewarding experience in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. You need to have at least five years of childcare experience (including sole charge), excellent English, enjoy cooking and helping prepare meals, be clean and tidy, be a strong swimmer and enjoy being on boats. You must have the right to work in the UK. Pay is £700 for the period. The position is live-in and the hours are 7am – 7pm with the odd babysitting evening. You will get two days off (i.e. working 6/7 days) and all travel (from anywhere in the UK to and from the islands in Cornwall) and meals will be taken care of. If you think this might suit you, please write back explaining what attracts you to the role and what experience you have. Please include a cv and the names of at least two references. Unfortunately, due to the large number of replies, we will only be able to respond to candidates on our shortlist.
