Engaging, Collaborative Nanny Needed For Active Manhattan Family



A tight-knit, energetic family in Manhattan is seeking a collaborative, organized, and upbeat nanny to join their team in caring for their four elementary through middle school-aged children, living-in 4 days per week! 


This family has a communicative and cooperative environment within their fully-staffed home, and these parents are passionate about being an active part of their team to ensure their children are well cared for, and each member is supported, valuing each individual, many of whom have been working with their family for several years! Their children are engaging, active, and desire to have a respectful and close bond. They attend school full-time and are very self-sufficient when it comes to school responsibilities, but will need positive reinforcement to keep belongings and schedules organized in an age-appropriate way. The family has lots of interests, from swimming and surfing, to ice hockey and skiing while traveling. They are eager to add a full-time weekday nanny to their team to join them in the city, and occasionally while traveling both domestically and internationally.


The ideal candidate for this position will have an outgoing spirit and hands-on mentality! They are seeking a nanny to tag-team the day-to-day both with parents and their co-nanny to ensure their children are supported and thriving in their daily routines. Responsibilities will include assisting with breakfast and meal preparation while encouraging healthy eating habits, transporting children to and from school and activities in the mornings and evenings, and managing the children’s schedules, as well as pitching in to the overall tidiness of the environment. Being pet-friendly will be important when working in this home, as is driving and swimming!


This is a long-term, full-time position; the schedule will be live-in and on-call 24 hours for 4 full days, Monday AM – Thursday PM with appropriate breaks in the day. Private and separate nanny accommodations will be provided both at the family’s primary residence in NYC while on duty. The position is live-out while off-duty (the family is happy to discuss living in while off-duty during summers in the Hamptons). The family is offering guaranteed hours and an annualized earning of $80-95k/year depending on experience and ability to provide glowing recent references. The family is also happy to offer discretionary bonus opportunities, as well as a generous benefits package including full health, dental, and vision insurance, sick days, PTO, and matching 401k contributions. Driving, typically outside of the city, will be required for this role and a vehicle will be provided while on duty. Start date for this position: as soon as they find the perfect fit!


This position is open to all Adventure Nanny candidates who are legally able to work in the US and possess a valid driver’s license and passport. This family will be prioritizing candidates who live within a commutable distance to Manhattan at this time.
