Nanny needed in Chapel Hill- Start Jan 2016

A lovely family in Chapel Hill is seeking a nanny/housekeeper to start January 2016.
Their current nanny who has been with them the past 6 years is leaving to join family overseas therefore they have to seek a new carer for their boys.
They have a 6yo boy and twin boys that will be 5 in April next year. All 3 boys will be at school as of 2016 and the school is located less than 5 mins from their home.
Ideally they are seeking a nanny to work Tuesday through to Friday from 12 or 1pm to 6pm each day. (min 24hours a week)
Prior to collecting the 3 children from school you will need to undertake some home duties. Duties may include but not limited to changing bed linen, laundry i.e. washing, folding and putting away, and general tidying of the home so the parents can enjoy spending quality time with the kids before bed time of an evening.
You will need to collect the kids from school and take to any after school activities, help with homework which will be prep and grade 1 so most will be reading with them, prepare afternoon tea and have lots of fun.
They have a swimming pool and all 3 boys can swim confidently so during summer they encourage you all to have fun in the pool. From time to time a trip to the park and library and such places are allowed.
Given they would like the nanny to play and take the boys out on outings they require someone that is quite active and leads a heathy lifestyle themselves. Also a nanny that has a genuine desire to work with school aged children and help them with homework is advantageous.
One of the twins has an allergy to nuts so this home is a nut free zone. For this reason they ask that the nanny have an updated first aid certificate.
If you are interested in keeping a home presentable and in running order and would then love to spend some hours with children of an afternoon then this job is for you.
They also have a 13yo small dog that is very much a part of the family so you must be ok with a dog around the home.
Remuneration will be paid accordingly and based on your experience and qualifications.
NON SMOKERS need only apply.
