20hrs p/w | Sevenoaks, Kent | 24 September start

Freckles has a lovely family with four energetic boys who need an experienced Mum to join them before and after school for 4 mornings and 3 afternoons per week - the days are of your choice. The boys are 14, 12 and 9 year old twins. The family also have a gorgeous Cockerpoo - so it would be great if you could help with him too. We are ideally looking for someone to start in September. 

The boys are at 3 different schools and the older two generally get themselves there and back on the bus whereas the twins need a bit more ferrying around – to and from school, friends, activities etc. They are your typical boys; high energy, lovers of sport and games. As with most kids they’re big on food and so you’ll need to be able to get them fed, through their homework and charging around to tire them out.

We are ideally looking for a Mum, someone who has been there and done it. You need to be confident running a home and working with 4 children - as 4 kids can be full on! You need to have your own car and a full clean driving license. Basic housekeeping duties are also expected; laundry, changing bed sheets, unloading the shopping delivery etc. It would be great if you're a keen cook as the boys love their food! You also need to be able to be firm with the boys and happy to have a system in place. A chatty persona is essential as it really helps to engage them. 

Mum and Dad both have to travel into London for work so we ideally need flexibility with some moving hours as required. Your normal hours will be 7am - 9am, four mornings a week and then 3pm - 7pm across 3 afternoons (the days are to be decided - between you and them). 

During the holidays there will be some full days, ensuring you always work a minimum of 20hrs per week. If you're keen and happy to travel with the family around the UK then that would be great.

If you're not yet registered with Freckles simply send us a copy of your CV and cover letter to kayas@freckleschildcare.co.uk and we can go from there.
