MOTHER’S HELP REQUIRED FOR FAMILY IN LOS ANGELES

We are seeking professional full-time Nanny / Mother’s Help to join a terrific private UHNW household based in Brentwood Los Angeles working alongside a large team of domestic roles, including other nannies. The position is for a young, active family with four children ranging from 3 years to 10 years old. The principals are hands-on with their children and involved with their daily activities.

Candidates are required to have worked for UHNW or HNWI private households looking after multiple children for at least 3+ years. The family is seeking long-term placements, so longevity in past roles is weighed heavily. We are looking for an energetic professional with a positive can-do attitude. An upbeat and happy service-oriented demeanour and the ability to understand professional boundaries and private space are necessary.

This role will involve assisting the principals with looking after the children, engaging in playtime, schoolwork, educational and traditional games, and overseeing sports and recreational fun (soccer, swimming, etc.). Due to the involved nature of the family there will be frequent times when the person needs to be nearby and available to interact quickly again while doing other tasks as requested.

The family enjoys traveling on shorter weekend trips and longer trips that extend for several weeks and up to 1-2 months abroad. An ideal candidate will enjoy traveling and have complete flexibility to do so. This role will be responsible for packing and unpacking children and family luggage during travel, accompanying the family to all outings and meals caring for the children while the family are at leisure.

A live-out role, the schedule is 5 days on 2 days off weekly, with travel days being taken as additional days off when the family are away. Being available to work early morning, late afternoons and over weekends are of essential importance. Benefits include HMO type health insurance, 2 weeks paid time off, 6 days sick paid time off and a discretionary Christmas bonus.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:
• Provide a safe, nurturing environment for the children at home
• Travel outside of the house with the family on outings to assist with looking after the children
• Greet the family at the door when they return from an outing.
• Keep the children’s bedrooms in a clean and tidy state at all times, including putting away and folding clothes and organizing shoes, toys, and all belongings neatly.
• Look after the children’s bathrooms
• Work with the residential staff to ensure that the children’s school uniforms are cleaned and correctly put away
• Keep the nursery clean, tidy and organised at all times
• Wash and properly sanitise all reusable baby care, bottles, milk storage, toys, and food containers after use, as appropriate
• Travel to destinations around the globe with the family for extended periods to assist the family with looking after the children
• Assist with day-to-day housekeeping and pet care duties when childminding is not required
• Pack and unpack for the family when travelling

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Candidates should ideally have experience HNWI private households helping the Principal Lady in the daily aspects of the house, looking after multiple children
• Proficient English both spoken and written
• Previous experience in HNW environments
• Step in and step out intuition – knowing when to be present and when not
• A collaborative team player happy to assist with a variety of household chores
• Flexible to adjust to schedule changes as discussed in advance – there are early morning and late-night shifts and shifts will vary from week to week
• A confident, calm, and gentle approach
• US passport holder or right to work in the USA
• Flexibility to travel internationally for extended periods of time
• Excellent checkable references
