Outstanding Career Nanny Needed in Houston, Texas for 2-Year-Old Child! The position averages 50 hours per week, but the right nanny MUST be flexible as far as the schedule goes. Mom is super organized and provides the schedule in advance, but the expectation is that you are flexible and completely reliable – an average day can start as early as 7:30am or as late as 10:00am, and the day may end at 6:30pm or on other days you may be asked to stay until 9/10:00pm. They have a weekend/flex nanny who can fill-in overflow hours, but this role will be for the primary nanny who makes up the bulk of the schedule. You must work well with others, as there should be a seamless transition of care between the two nannies.
The perfect person is a total pro – 100% reliable, flexible, prompt, intelligent, kind, discreet, and responsible. You should be confident and smart enough to know when to improvise, or when to approach mom and dad with issues or handle things on your own. They want someone who can make sure the child is having fun, who enjoys engaging and interacting, can transition through developmental phases with the child, and is energetic and can keep up with an active two-year-old! Duties will including driving the child to activities, maintaining their schedule, being a self-starter when it comes to the child’s physical and emotional needs, and attending to any family assistant responsibilities that are required. You must be a strong swimmer as the family is around the water a lot both at home and when traveling. You also must understand and respect confidentiality. They would love a nanny who spoke a second language, but it’s not a requirement. This is an active family who enjoys getting out and doing things, learning new things, going places, and having fun – you should be the same!!
This is a dual-working household, and both parents have extremely busy schedules – they work hard, but when they are not working they like to travel and be somewhere fun! The right nanny will be up for an adventure and is open to traveling 3-4 months out of the year, for up to 6 weeks at a time, including on holidays.
They are looking for a long-term fit! Rate is $70-$100K/yr gross DOE! There is a live-in option (with a separate entrance) or the possibility of a housing stipend for the right person. If you are up for an adventure, consider yourself a true professional, are passionate about your work, and are looking for an incredible family to work for – this is the job!
