A professional family with a six-month-old baby boy, living in Newmarket (near Cambridge), CB8 are looking for a full time, kind and flexible nanny to join their family home. You must hold a driving licence to apply for this role (automatic car will be provided).

Package Offered

  • £32,000 - £38,000 gross per year depending on experience
  • Beautiful Accommodation if you wish to live in (or flexi-live in)
  • Automatic car provided

Family Background

The family are a professional family, with the parents working full time. The father works locally and the mother commutes to the city. She is currently on maternity leave but will be going back to work in October, although she is unclear if she will be working remotely or commuting in (due to the current COVID situation). They both normally travel regularly for work. They have a beautiful six-month-old son, and a cute little dog in the house. Both parents are outdoorsy, and love horses (they own many). They have a housekeeper who comes regularly to the property to do the regular cleaning, washing, ironing and deep cleaning. They are keen to find a long-term nanny who can become a valued member of their family for many years to come.


All childcare duties as associated with the little boy, including helping with arranging playdates, running errands and sorting anything out that is relevant in the little one. You'll be in charge of his room, his bathroom, his laundry and his clothes and ensure that he is fed healthy and wholesome food. The little boy is fully weaned and the family are keen to keep developing his love of food. You should ideally be confident and experienced with this age range and happy to take the lead with potty training once they get to that stage.

Typically the family do travel regularly and have a second property in the Scottish Borders which they love to visit. You should be able to travel with them when required.

You should be enthusiastic, positive and with a can-do attitude, happy to arrange playdates and activities to help the little boy learn, grow and develop. Working alongside the parents to ensure this happens. You should be confident with both sole charge and shared charge as the parents enjoy being involved (when they can with their work) and you should be happy to become a great team with them. Flexibility is key, as the parents both have demanding jobs - so you should be able to support the family in all areas. Ideally, you should love the outdoors and if you love horses this is a bonus (but not required!) You should be willing to get stuck into family life and happy to lend a hand to a busy family home.


The family live in Newmarket (near Cambridge), CB8. The family will consider both live in and live out candidates or flexi-candidates (live in during the week and live out at the weekends). If live in, you will be provided a lovely space with its own entrance at the top of the property - a large bedroom, living area, bathroom and kitchen.


Working Monday - Friday, 7am - 7pm. With the flexibility to do weekend or babysitting, but the family will ensure that you have time off in lieu if you work any extra hours.


You should have a good level of English. Any other languages are a bonus.

Special Skills

You should be an experienced and enthusiastic nanny, with a positive attitude. Driving is essential and an automatic car will be provided.
