Full time nanny needed- Paddington

We are seeking a career orientated nanny to work with a busy family in Paddington.
The position is to start ideally in August (no set date) to work any 3 days a week (or you can work every day as half days-they have immense flexibility) with the possibility of an occasional Saturday so mum and Dad can go out on a date! As of January 2016 mum is returning to work due to her mat leave ending which will mean the role will become full time with approx. 50 plus hours a week. Between August and January mum will be around however she is wanting to transition with the nanny to ensure the girls will be ok when she returns to work; and mum is seeking some ME time before she goes back to her heavy workload at work and also to spend time with each of her daughters with some individual time. During this period it will be a shared care role however as of January the role will mean you will be sole carer.
Both parents are emergency doctors therefore work on a rotating roster system. The hours will vary each week however the role will be full time. You must have extreme flexibility as the job will entail working some nights (which can mean up to midnight), overnight’s and a possibility of maybe working one in 4 weekends (if mum and dads roster collide). They are happy to have another nanny to do overnight as they also don’t want their nanny to burn out.

The family restrict TV/screen time as they very much encourage outdoor play/outings and being educated.

The eldest child will be going to kindy as of Jan 2016 therefore moving forward into next year your role will be mostly with the baby however you will be needing to do kindy drop off and pickups and converse with centre staff and obviously attend to her needs when she isn’t at kindy.
