Freckles is looking for a totally amazing Kaya Nanny to take over from one of our fabulous Kayas who is leaving to go on a new adventure. Our family have two adorable boys who are 2 years old and 6 months. The role is due to start at the beginning of June.
Mum is going back to work at the beginning of June and Dad is the process of retraining and hopes to be starting a new role over the summer. This means from June until Dad returns to work the role will be 25hrs a week (5hrs per day Monday - Friday or 6 hours p/d Tuesday - Friday), rising to 40hrs per week there after (Tuesday - Friday). This will give someone a great chance to get to know the boys and settle into the routine before jumping into full days. The role will increase to 50hrs per week (Monday - Friday) from January 2019 as Mum will be living in Shrivenham during the week.
The family are lovely and the boys are totally gorgeous. It's been a really tough decision for our current Kaya Nanny to leave and she is keen to make sure someone is fully settled before the long and full weeks start in January. The family currently live in Aldershot but will be moving towards Andover/Basingstoke from Summer 2019 so in an ideal world you would be able to stay with them!
The family have a lovely Beagle who needs walking each day but he is very chilled and described as a teddy bear with a beating heart! So a love of dogs is essential. There is general housekeeping involved (as always) because we want to enable Mum and Dad to spend more quality time with their boys.
We are not too concerned about a huge amount of formal experience but you will need to be confident working with babies and toddlers. You need to have lots of energy but be able to be calm under pressure. There are lots of local toddler groups that we want you to get involved in and as the family is military there are lots of other small children on the base.
You do need to have your own car and full clean driving license.
This is a really great role where someone can become part of a fun and busy family. If you're not yet registered with Freckles simply send us a copy of your CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can go from there.
