Overview: An exciting live-in housekeeper-nanny role with an energetic family at their home on a small estate in the Kent countryside, 90 minutes from central London.

Occasionally the house is used as a film location and you will act as a point of contact for the production team. The property's guest cottage is periodically run as a self-catering holiday let for which there will be some oversight and provisioning duties (but note the cleaning is done by a separate team).

Nanny duties will include dropping off and collecting the children from school ( walking distance) when the principals are unable to do so, taking to and from activities, ensuring kit and homework bags are packed as needed for the day; ensuring uniform is clean and smart; supervising homework; preparing and supervising meals (breakfast and children's dinner, lunch in school holidays – note, no allergies or fussy eaters); supervising bedtimes. In school holidays, taking children to activities and providing supervision where needed. Providing babysitting one night/week and additional ad hoc babysitting and potentially overnight stays by mutual agreement.

Strong cookery skills are desirable, for example: meal planning, preparation and cooking of fresh, healthy family meals. There is access to a large kitchen/vegetable garden for seasonal produce. You may enjoy displaying cut flowers, working with the principals and gardener to ensure good use of available fruit, vegetables and flowers in the garden.

Accommodation will be in a spacious furnished separate flat adjacent to the main house with utilities paid. Sorry No dependents or pets. Strictly non-smoking. Enhanced DBS check mandatory. Automatic Car provided for work duties. (HU4085)
