Two Full-Time Nannies with Heavy Travel: $100K+ and Benefits

Apply Now

Family with main residence in Miami Beach, Florida with three month old boy and two year old girl is seeking two experienced, professional, active, and engaging full-time nannies. Schedule will be spilt between two full-time nannies to ensure the family has seven day per week coverage. Schedule on days working will be a combination of 8:00am – 8:00pm or later. When working at main residence in Florida, nanny should expect to work on three to four days per week. This schedule will ensure that each nanny works half the time (approximately 26.5 weeks per year), receives approximately two weekends off per month, travel is split annually and holidays worked are split annually. Nannies will collaboratively make monthly schedules at least one to three months in advance. Position is typically based in Toronto, Canada during May through September/October and based in Florida during September/October through May. Family plans to spend majority of their time in Florida in the next 1-2 years. When nanny is working in Canada, family will provide separate accommodations and transportation. Nanny should be comfortable working many days consecutively (e.g., when working in Canada and traveling for two to four weeks at a time, only one nanny will travel with family and the other nanny is off work). The position requires extreme flexibility as family’s schedule changes at various times in the year (e.g., summer, holidays, travel, etc.). Approximately 8-10+ weeks of domestic and international travel per year is required (in addition to months spent annually in Canada). Applicants need to be honest, trustworthy, understand the importance of maintaining discretion, collaborative and experienced working with domestic staff (executive assistant, housekeepers, nannies, baby nurse, etc.), and experienced working with principals that are at residence often (discreet and staying out of the way is important). Staff vehicle is provided for transporting children. These are newly created positions. Family is open to local candidates and domestic relocations. Start date is October 2021, but flexible for the right candidates.
