NANNY / HOUSEKEEPER ROLE
Nanny/Housekeeper is a very popular and practical position where two services are mixed into one. Most Nanny/Housekeepers take responsibility for childcare before and after school time, carrying out household duties when the children are at school.
In this double role the family need to provide a very clear job description and schedule of when the Nanny/Housekeeper can undertake household duties (e.g during nap time, school time) because is hard to do clean properly and look after the children at the same time. The most important role is to supervise the children and ensure their safety at all times so this takes priority.
It is all about negotiation between the family and the candidate as this role must be very flexible and be adapted to the specific needs of each family in terms of the hours worked and the duties. For this reason a clear job description would need to be written into the contract. The family would also be expected to provide a separate bedroom and all meals.
A typical salary for live-in Nanny/ Housekeeper is between £350 – £500 per week.
