**** UPDATE ****
Thank you to everyone who has contacted us. We have been overwhelmed by the response and have received over 2000 messages in relation to the position. Due to the vast number of enquiries, we unfortunately aren't able to respond to everyone individually. It has been a difficult time for us recently and the number of applicants and messages offering support and help are hugely appreciated. Thanks again for all the interest.
We are looking for an exceptional live-in nanny to join our friendly family of four in the Scottish Borders.
We have 2 children ages 5 and 7, and live in a lovely, spacious, historic property with spectacular views.
Duties would include preparing breakfast, getting the children ready for school, dropping off and picking up from school and assisting after school, including helping with homework and getting them ready for bed.
My husband and I are both very busy professionals who are often required to work away and there are occasions, up to 4 nights per week, (weekdays only) when we will both be away and you will be at the property alone in sole charge.
You will be provided with your own comfortable room with en-suite bathroom and private kitchen.
We are offering a salary of £50,000 gross per annum and 28 days holiday (plus bank holidays) for the right person.
We have lived in our home for nearly 10 years. We were told it was 'haunted' when we bought it, but kept our minds open and decided to buy the house regardless. 5 nannies have left the role in the last year, each citing supernatural incidents as the reason, including strange noises, broken glass and furniture moving. This has obviously been a period of great upheaval for our children. We haven't personally experienced any supernatural happenings, as they have been reported only while we've been out of the house, but we're happy to pay above the asking rate, and feel it's important to be as up-front as possible to find the right person.
We are keen to find the perfect long-term nanny, so if you'd like to be considered for this rewarding and exciting position, please do get in touch with us.
