Hi Mumsnet,

We are looking for a live-in nanny/housekeeper in the Blackheath area. If anyone has any recommendations or would like to refer someone we would appreciate your help. The following is a simple job description.

This nanny/housekeeper would run a large household in Blackheath providing support to a family currently consisting of three children (Olympia, 3, and her two cousins, Alexander, 12, and Scarlett, 6). This interesting old London townhouse overlooks Blackheath and spread over 5 floors with a private entrance one-bedroom, garden flat for the nanny/housekeeper.

This position combines the duties of looking after the children and housekeeping. The priority will be the children when they are home. When child/children do not require direct care the nanny/housekeeper will do laundry, prepare meals, vacuum, shopping and general household chores with a thorough house cleaning done once a week including bathrooms and linens. This position will require occasional school drop-offs and daily school pick-up. Full-time childcare will be required during school holidays and if a child is not well enough for school.

Generally, the nanny/housekeeper will be expected to work a five-day week from Monday to Friday, baby-sit up to twice a week on weekday evenings. Occasional weekend care may be required. Flexibility will be needed. Some travel may be required too. There are currently two dogs who will require company but rarely exercise duty.

Healthy low-gluten diet.
Coffee trays and breakfast prepared daily.
Preparation of daily school lunches.
Evening meals for children and occasionally full family dinners.

Special notes/requirements:
Must speak excellent English and be physically active.
Singing and ability to play an instrument a plus. Daily reading required. Must have a calm and gentle demeanor and knowledge regarding compassionate listening. Steiner knowledge a plus. A true passion for early childhood development and ongoing interest in the field. Higher education degree is a plus. Computer literate.
