Friendly, energetic and reliable nanny needed to pick up two children (aged 6.5 and 3.5) from preschool and school (3pm and 3:15pm) and look after them at home until either mum or dad gets home at 6:30ish.
The older child sometimes has after school clubs or playdates that will need to be included in the schedule.
You will be expected to cook them tea at around 5 every day.
These hours would be Monday to Thursday (14 hours per week), but would increase to include Friday from the start of September, but we also need full time care (8:30 to 6:30pm) during the school holidays (your holiday allowance must be taken within school holiday time).
If possible, one early morning would be desirable as well (Mondays, start at 7:30 until school drop off at 9am).
We live only a 5 minute walk from both school and preschool, but you must be able to drive in order to cope with playdates and extra curricular activities if they happen. Our children are generally happy, quite lively, like being outdoors (unless it's really wet and cold!) and get on well together, most of the time!. They are not particularly fussy eaters, both like arts and crafts, cooking, watching TV and favourite DVDs and are very chatty once they get to know you, although our 6.5 year old can be shy at first.
We would like you to speak fluent English, be eligible to work in the UK, have some experience looking after children (an NVQ or similar would be preferable) and we will ensure you are CRB checked before you begin.
Salary scale £8-10 per hour depending on experience. No smokers please.
