2 nannies needed in St Lucia for a baby girl!

A single mum who works in the medical profession is seeking 2 nannies to look after her 7 month old baby girl in their apartment in St Lucia.
2 nannies are required as they are quite lengthy hours. She is open to the way the 2 nannies work whether half days each or full days however they will need coverage Monday to Friday from 5am to 7pm (sometimes the evenings will be earlier but with medical emergencies it depends what time she will arrive home).
Approximately once a week, one of the nannies will have to do an overnight due to her being on call. If she doesn’t work you have no responsibility however will still be paid (at a reduced rate). There is also one full weekend to be worked approximately every 6 weeks. Again, the weekends can be negotiated between the 2 nannies.
They live in a small apartment however have a spare room with ensuite for the nanny who does stay overnight and does the weekends.
Given the unit is quite small she is more than happy for the nannies to encourage outings however also some routine at home, especially whilst she is still a baby. You will need to take her to her swimming lesson in which you need to get in the pool with her, located at Morningside.
Mum is extremely open to meeting a range of nannies whether qualified or not however she is seeking someone around her own age group (36) as there maybe many occasions shes on call from home and she would like to have a ‘friend’ at home with them. She is thinking along the lines of a 30-40year old and someone who has had kids. You can even bring your own kids/baby along with you as she feels it would be special for her bub to have a little friend to play with. She is more so after 2 nannies that can work alongside one another and as a team where there will be consistency for her daughter. The nannies must show initiative to get tasks done and to engage some form of routine for her baby. Given they live in a small apartment mum would very much appreciate help around the home. Ideally you will need to help with washing and folding, tidy the apartment, clean the bathroom, meal prep especially for bub and with her homemade foods and all duties relating to the baby girl. The chores can be set daily and shared between both nannies so tasks are getting done every day and so the baby’s routine is followed. Sharing the workload between 2 nannies will make for a pleasant working environment and will help mum out immensely.
Given mum is working full time and on call quite a lot it’s important to her to find 2 very caring and affectionate nannies that will love her baby girl. It is also highly important she reaches her milestones and is encouraged through different activities that the nannies set for her.
Remuneration will be discussed with each applicant however she is open to employing the nannies or have nannies work under their own ABN. 4 weeks holiday will be paid as will public holidays that fall on your work day. Occasionally, a nanny will be required to work on a public holiday.
If you are seeking part time to full time hours and have some flexibility with hours you work then apply now. Reliable non-smoking nannies need only apply.
Must have a car and licence for this role.
