Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency is assisting a family in Myers Park in finding a Nanny/House Manager for their family, including two elementary age boys. The family is looking for a Nanny/House Manager to work Monday - Thursday from 8:00 am - 6:30 pm. With the flexibility to come an hour earlier or stay an hour later on occasion (overtime pay will apply)
The family is looking for a live-out Nanny/House Manager that is experienced in caring for elementary school-age children and a Nanny/House Manager who has had previous home management experience. The children are in school during the week from late August to late May. In the summers the children will be involved in different activities around town. During the school year, the family needs a Nanny/House Manager who will come in and help the children get ready for school, pack lunches, make sure they are prepared for school and take them to school. There are also days year-round when the boys are under the custody of their father who is no longer married to mom. When the children are in school from 9-4 and at their dad’s house, the family needs help with personal assistant and household management tasks such as running errands, laundry, changing bed linens, healthy meal prep and cooking (strong cooking skills for dinner meals are required), keeping the house tidy and well organized, and misc other household management task. The family does not need heavy house cleaning as they have a house cleaner that comes on a regular, weekly basis (Fridays). But it is expected they will keep floors and kitchen swept/clean during the week.
Then the children would need to be picked up from school at 4:15 pm and taken care of until their mom gets home. In the summers the position is heavier on Nannying as the children are home a lot more during the day. So the best candidate must be good with house management task and taking care of the 6 and 8-year-old boys.
The family’s older son has diabetes that needs to be managed. To assist in managing their son’s diabetes the Nanny/House Manager would be trained by the mom on how to count carbs and help John with the math of calculating his insulin needs before a meal. It is important that the Nanny/House Manager take their son’s diabetes management seriously and that they are somewhat good with math, as simple math equations are involved in managing their son’s diabetes. The mom will train the Nanny/House Manager and talk daily via text or phone to confirm math calcs. or answer any question as they team together. The family also has a small dog and rabbit that would need some care throughout the day (i.e. walking or letting the dog out in the yard, feeding or giving new water to the dog or Rabbit).
This position starts ASAP and salary is negotiable. With two weeks paid time off, three sick days, paid mileage for errands and continued pay while the family is away and house manager duties are performed instead. The best nanny candidate must also pass an in-person pre-screening interview, background check, reference check, be tobacco and drug-FREE, and be CPR/First Aid certified.
