UPDATE 20th August 2017
We were surprised to see our advert making headlines in the national and international press!
Thank you to all the candidates that have responded to our advert so far.
There have been over 300 applications to date and only a small handful meet the specific requirements and criteria clearly stipulated in the advert below.
If you do not have ALL the necessary qualifications, skills and experience for the role then we would politely request that you do not even bother making an application as it is a waste of our time and yours.
Due to the volume of applications received, we are unfortunately unable to respond to them all personally.
We are looking for a highly qualified nanny who has a degree in child psychology, no children of their own and a minimum of 15 years of nannying experience. The candidate must be willing to work six days a week, 7am to 8pm. We have four homes in London, Barbados, Cape Town and Atlanta. The applicant therefore must be comfortable with flying regularly, as they may be required to travel internationally up to three times a week, depending where the children are.
I feel it is best to be upfront – the role is demanding. Our children are home-schooled and require constant attention and supervision, even when they are with their teachers. We’d like our nanny to participate in lessons where appropriate, to help further their studies outside of the classroom.
We’d prefer our nanny to eat with the children at every meal, which will be cooked for them by a Michelin star chef, however this isn’t mandatory. We have multiple cars including a Porsche, Range Rover and Maserati which are available for the candidate to use – we expect the nanny to run errands and take the children to various daily appointments. A clean UK driving license is a must.
My husband and I are often absent due to work and social commitments, but when we are home we like to have time alone with our children. Therefore, there will be periods where we ask our nanny to take leave to allow us to have quality time as a family.
We do not mind what the nanny does with their free time, however binge drinking or drug taking will not be tolerated and will result in instant dismissal.
Ideally our nanny will be trained in self-defence, however if the right candidate doesn’t already have this training we will provide and pay for it. This is non-negotiable.
We wish to find the perfect nanny for our family and its vital that our children like the successful candidate. Therefore, there is a non-negotiable 2-week paid provisional period, where the nanny is required to live with us in one of our homes, so we can test the water!
We are offering a salary of £100,000 per annum and require an NDA to be signed as well for privacy reasons, please no time wasters. The successful candidate must have all the above as we are keen to find the perfect new addition to our family!
““I feel it is best to be upfront – the role is demanding,” the post reads. “We are looking for a nanny or therapist with a degree in child psychology, who do not have children of their own and have 15 years of experience in the field,” wrote the mother of the family. Those who are elected will also have to know self-defense – although parents are willing to pay for training in martial arts if necessary. In any case, this is a demand that the parents are unwilling to give up.
The family, which includes four children between the ages of two and 15, has homes in London, Barbados, Cape Town, and Atlanta. They are looking for a nanny who will be required to fly with them as often as three times a week.
Apart from the benefits, the job is accompanied by quite a few requirements: The work is for six days a week from seven in the morning to eight in the evening. The chosen one will be required to take part in the children’s homeschooling studies and help with the homework.
“We have multiple cars including a Porsche, Range Rover and Maserati which are available for the candidate to use – we expect the nanny to run errands and take the children to various daily appointments,” the post reads.
The requirements also apply to the employee’s leisure time. “We do not care what the therapist does in her spare time, but we will not agree to excessive drinking or drug consumption, and such behavior will lead to immediate dismissal,” the parents explained in the ad.
The identity of the wealthy family was not revealed, but the mother spoke with the American television network CNBC and said that she had received more than 300 applications, but “most of them do not meet all the requirements.” Last week, the ad was viewed by 874 users.
The ad was posted on Childcare.co.uk, a British platform that connects parents and child care providers such as nannies and private tutors, and has over 1.5 million users. The site’s managers said that their tests, the profile of the parents and the ad appear to be true. “As far as we can see, this is an authentic ad, although it is slightly different from the norm on the site,” he said.
