A fun and active family living on the Upper East Side is hiring a weekend nanny. The nanny will live in private quarters and care for a 5-year-old girl, along with her 9 and 11-year-old brothers.
In addition to typical childcare responsibilities, the nanny will join the family on outings, accompany the children to parties and sports practices and games, as well and join in on domestic and international travel.
The position will also include some household management, including laundering and ironing the children’s school uniforms, meal prep, and occasional errands. The family is looking for someone with a proactive attitude, who can anticipate a need and jump in to help out.
The schedule will be Friday night to Sunday morning. The morning typically starts at 7:30am and the day will wrap up when the children go to sleep ~10:30pm. The nanny will be provided private accommodations in the home, and may be expected to be on-call if the parents are traveling or have evening arrangements.
The family will be paying $750-1000 per weekend, with additional compensation for overtime requests. Benefits are being offered. The family is looking for someone to start early in the new year.
