Nanny Position in Dubai | Two Children Aged 3.5 Years & 8 Months | Separate Accommodation

Job ref: DubFI/LIs

Lovely Nanny position with an Irish family is available in Dubai – the family have two children aged 3.5 years & 8 months, and are looking for an experienced, happy, engaging, open and developmentally focussed Nanny.

The position will be starting on 1st October, although later start date might also be considered.

Working hours needed will be 6 days a week ideally with Saturdays off,  from 6.30am to 7.30pm (with breaks of 2+1 hour during the day); the family might consider offering 2 weekends off a month but will require flexibility in general. One evening of babysitting a week in general. 

This is a combination of sole & shared care and the Mum mostly needs help due to the Dad travelling often for work; the older child will also be starting school in September where she will be learning French.

A French speaking Nanny would therefore be highly beneficial, however this is not essential as the family are more interested in finding the right match – someone energetic, flexible, caring, helpful, open & willing to work with parents as a long-term partner in raising the children. Knowledge of the Neufeld approach and/or willingness to learn and possibly take on a course in this area (paid for by the family) is also important.

Duties will cover all usual nanny duties including cooking for the children, although the family employ a long-term household helper who is able to help with nursery duties such as children’s laundry and cleaning the children’s rooms.

The family are looking for someone who is able to offer a long-term commitment, someone happy to travel with the family (July/August in France, December & March mostly), become part of the family and develop a lasting relationship with the children.

Start date: 1st October 2017 (or flexible); salary offered: negotiable based on experience etc.: £750/£800+ per week.
