Nanny needed 2015 in Samsonvale (Samford area)

We have a beautiful family who live in Samsonvale (between Samford and Dayboro) that require an after school care nanny for their 2 girls aged 5 and 7.

Given their location you MUST have a car and licence to get to work however during the course of your work hours the family vehicle is available to transport the girls around.

The family are looking for someone to do afternoon shifts 4 days per week. The role would involve:

- 4 days per week either Tuesday to Friday or Monday to Thursday
- Approximately 2.30 pm until 6.15 pm, on each day plus, an extra 3 to 4 hours per week to do some housekeeping for us (ie approx 20 hours a week in total)
- Collecting the children from school, giving them afternoon tea and driving them to any after school activities
- Doing homework and reading with the children and assisting them with school projects
- Preparing dinner for the children and sometimes for the parents
- Some housework (tidying up, washing, ironing, vacuuming,)
- Running household errands eg picking up groceries, dry-cleaning
- Some flexibility to stay later on occasions if both parents have work commitments that extend into the evenings.

To apply for this wonderful positon you must possess the following qualities/attributes:

- warm, engaging, practical and resilient
- Has previous nannying or childcare experience or someone older who has already raised their own family. The family would consider a student looking for part time work subject to being satisfied as to their maturity and commitment. The role is probably not well suited to someone with young children of their own.
- is willing to commit to the role for at least 12 months (and ideally for a longer term).
- a non-smoker

The position is to start January 2015 with flexibility as to the actual date so long as it is before school starts.

Remuneration will be $25 per hour (based on experience). You will be employed as a contractor therefore you will be responsible for your own Tax and Super contributions.
