Wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a specimen nanny job description? After a surf about here and on the interweb generally I can''t seem to immediately find one.

I've found and borrowed the Nannyjob model contract ('thou shalt be paid £x/hr and get x days holiday') but want to write a short job description ('your job is to keep the baby safe and happy, take him to the park once a day, follow baby's existing routine, assist with weaning etc') because I'm temporarily (for a couple of months) going to use someone who hasn't been to nanny training school and I want something on paper in the hope of avoiding misunderstandings later.

(BTW I'll be looking for a 'proper' nanny a bit later in the year, potentially - and when that moment arrives I'll post on here to see if anyone is interested )
