Passionate & Reliable Nanny/Household Manager (27517)
Updated: Jun 16
Select Sitters is seeking a passionate, trustworthy, and reliable nanny for a family relocating to Chapel Hill in early July. The family has a happy and funny 3.5-year-old boy and a curious and energetic almost 6-year-old girl. Both children will be in school during the 8 am-3 pm window with the exception of teacher workdays and sick days, so their ideal nanny would have the flexibility for early mornings, evenings, and overnights. They are hoping for an experienced caregiver who is also highly organized, proactive and comfortable with home management tasks! It is important to have a reliable car with room for car seats and a clean driving record since transporting the children to and from school is required.
The typical hours will vary each week and the schedule will be provided at least one month in advance. The days would start as early as 6:30am and end as late as 8pm and typically fall M-F, however, all hours will not be required each day. Since the children attend school during the day, household management tasks will be requested during the day. They are willing to collaborate with their nanny to put together the best schedule and will have some "must have" times each week. Occasionally they will need an overnight (7 pm- 7 am) depending on if both parents are on call/working during that time frame. For overnight shifts, one parent will also be home but can be required to go to work for emergencies. After September, there are very few overnights anticipated. Both children are great sleepers. On rare occasions, there may also need some weekend help but the parents will first try to switch their schedules in order to avoid needing weekend help. The total guaranteed hours are flexible based on the needs of the right candidate. If the candidate is looking for 30-40 hours, they are also willing to increase the total guaranteed hours to offer as many as 30-40 hours for the right candidate who is willing to help with household duties such as laundry, meal prep for the kids, tidying up, etc. The minimum total average hours would be between 20-30 hours a week, although this may be reflected with some longer weeks and some shorter weeks. They are seeking a long-term nanny who is interested in being a part of their family!
Ideal Candidate Would Have:
-Experience with the preschool-early elementary years preferred, but no minimum experience required
-Reliable Transportation & Clean Driving Record
-CPR/First Aid Certification
-COVID Vaccine preferred or open to wearing a mask in the home if not vaccinated
-Ability to commit long-term (one year minimum)
-Bilingual (Spanish, Mandarin, Hindi) is a huge bonus, but not required
