Nanny/Governess Required

For G6 in New York, USA

$700-1000 NPW

A lovely family residing in New York City (Times Square) is seeking an educated and experienced live-in nanny/governess from the UK to assist with the care and educational development of their 6 years old daughter. The family plans to move to the UK within the coming years and is seeking a candidate that will be able to assist with tuition of the British school curriculum as well as general care, overall development through indoor and outdoor activities and good conversation.

The nanny/governess will need to assist with light housekeeping related only to the child, ensuring her play area and bedroom are tidy as well as organising clothes and laundry. Some light meal preparation is essential. A driver is not required as the family travels around using the subway and taxis. The girl goes to school, therefore assisting her in the mornings and afternoon is the main requirement from Monday to Friday. Occasional Saturday cover may be required from time to time, therefore someone with a flexible approach to the family’s needs is sought. Their daughter goes to fencing and also practices piano, someone that would be able to prompt her to practice ahead of time would be beneficial. She loves music, reading and has a very creative character, therefore a fairly animated and bubbly nanny would work well with her.

They would like the nanny/governess to be like a part of their family with an easy going attitude. The parents occasionally travel for work therefore at times they will require some proxy parenting. Their previous nanny from the UK is leaving to start her own family, however they hope that the nanny governess joining them will have a handover period with their current nanny who has granted them a long notice period in order for the family to have time to find the right candidate. The family is very organised and tend to know their schedule ahead of time. Therefore the nanny governess will be able to plan her own holidays accordingly.

The nanny/governess applying for this role must have the right to live and work in the USA.

The accommodation that is provided is a bedroom with queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom with adequate privacy. The salary on offer is $700-1000 per week. They also offer one return flight home per year. The family is ready to interview via video call immediately.
