6 month temp nanny role in Kenmore- Start in May

We have a fantastic role starting with a family in Kenmore during the month of May for approx. 6 months.
The family currently consists of twins who will be 2 in May with a new baby who will be arriving in June.
Your role as nanny will be to look after the twins however also assist mum in the home where you can.
The family ideally will be seeking a nanny to start end of May to work all day Wednesdays until bub arrives in June when your days will be extended to 2 (ideally Tue and Thu) or 3 (ideally Mon, Wed and Fri) full days a week, depending how the family is coping. They have flexibility in which days the nanny can work. Your days will be a 7.30am start and 6pm finish with an hour lunch break during the day.
As you can imagine with twins it makes for a busy household therefore they have a fairly structured day with a routine that is followed. Ideally the nanny will continue with the current routine and will incorporate fun and educational learning at home, as well as outings to places such as the park or library. They also have a pool in which the twins love to utilize. The mother will leave you alone in the home with at least the twins from time to time, for example if she has an appointment.
For the most part of the day you will be busy with the twins however they do have a substantial sleep throughout the day in which the parents would appreciate help with some washing and folding, keeping the twins room and play areas clean and tidy and preparing any food throughout the day.
There may be times you may need to assist with the baby if mum is busy with the twins so this will be a job for a nanny who enjoys being in a busy home and working in a team environment however who can also work unsupervised and as a sole carer.
The family qualify for the registered care rebate so would prefer a nanny who can register with Centrelink as a registered carer. However this is not a deal breaker and the family is most interested in finding the right nanny for their family.
Remuneration will be discussed with each individual and will be based on your own personal experience and qualifications.
If you are a fun, energetic, organised nanny who shows initiative then this is the job for you for 2015 so apply now!
