If you like going abroad, driving fancy sports cars and enjoy working with children, the perfect job for you may have been posted online.
A couple, with bases in London, Cape Town, Barbados and Atlanta are looking for a live-in nanny, and are offering £100k-a-year for their services.
Not only will you have access to a Porsche, Range Rover and Maserati, you’ll be travelling between four fantastic destinations – but it’s not as easy as it sounds.
The post, on website childcare, admits the role is ‘demanding’, reading:
Our children are home-schooled and require constant attention and supervision, even when they are with their teachers.
We’d like our nanny to participate in lessons where appropriate, to help further their studies outside of the classroom.
We’d prefer our nanny to eat with the children at every meal, which will be cooked for them by a Michelin star chef, however this isn’t mandatory.
My husband and I are often absent due to work and social commitments, but when we are home we like to have time alone with our children.
Therefore, there will be periods where we ask our nanny to take leave to allow us to have quality time as a family.
The couple say they don’t mind what the nanny does with their free time, however ‘binge drinking or drug taking will not be tolerated’, which would result in ‘instant dismissal’.
The post continues:
Ideally our nanny will be trained in self-defence, however if the right candidate doesn’t already have this training we will provide and pay for it. This is non-negotiable.
We wish to find the perfect nanny for our family and it’s vital our children like the successful candidate.
The advert carries on to read:
Therefore, there is a non-negotiable 2-week paid provisional period, where the nanny is required to live with us in one of our homes, so we can test the water!
We are offering a salary of £100,000 per annum and require an NDA to be signed as well for privacy reasons, please no time wasters.
The successful candidate must have all the above as we are keen to find the perfect new addition to our family!
As if that wasn’t enough, the candidate must also have a degree in child psychology, no children of their own and a minimum of 15 years of nannying experience.
If you’re thinking of applying, you must be willing to work six days a week, 7am to 8pm, and be comfortable with flying regularly – you may be required to travel internationally up to three times a week – depending where the children are.
Demanding to say the least!
