Travel-Ready, Spanish-Speaking Nanny/Family Assistant Needed in the Bay Area

 

 

A loving, engaging, and fun family based in the Bay Area’s Redwood City is seeking a Spanish-speaking, travel-ready, and multi-talented nanny/family assistant to join them in caring for their 3 and 9-year-old children!

 

This California-based mom loves to travel with her bright and curious children, from skiing in the mountains to extended stays in southern Spain to camping and hiking in the Redwoods. The whole family speaks Spanish fluently in their home and travel often to spend time with their extended family in Spain where they visit multiple times per year. They are excited to find a candidate who can speak Spanish exclusively with the children and who is a wonderful addition to the collaborative, enriching environment in their home. A candidate who is excited to support the home as a whole from healthy cooking and meal preparation, to various family assisting tasks will also appreciated!

 

The ideal candidate for this role will be multi-talented, experienced, self-starting, and ready to become a part of this single mom’s team. Native fluency in Spanish is key as well as a candidate who has a proven ability to engage in educational, child-led play, encourage the children’s creativity, and be a grounded, flexible, and patient addition to this home will be welcomed into this family long-term. Their youngest has a severe peanut allergy so paying attention to detail and being trained in food allergy preparedness and how to use an EpiPen, or a willingness to learn is of paramount importance for this candidate. This family will be excited about a candidate who has a love for cooking and would be interested in sharing mealtimes together when working! The family employs housekeepers and a candidate who is happy to pitch into an overall tidy and organized environment will be appreciated. Mom works from home occasionally and has the ability to offer flexibility around scheduling for the right person.

 

This is a full-time, live-out position of 40+ hours/week with hours generally falling on Mondays through Fridays from 11:15am to 7:15pm. Flexibility to provide occasional evening and weekend coverage, as well as to travel with the family, will be appreciated. The family is offering $35+/hr and are happy to discuss additional benefits such as assistance with healthcare, PTO, sick days, and relocation assistance. Driving will be required for this role and a vehicle will be provided while on duty. The position will begin as soon as the family finds the perfect fit!

 

This position is open to all Adventure Nanny candidates who are legally able to work in the US, possess a valid driver’s license and passport, and are fluent in Spanish.
