We are looking for an a nanny who is energetic, organised and has a genuine love for kids to look after our four kids Eliza (9), Maggie (8), Charles (6) and August (1). I work full time and am required to travel occasionally for work over the next 3 months so we are looking for someone to look after the kids and keep our household happy and (relatively) calm! We would love to introduce someone to our family and our farming life in rural Australia!
We live on a large grain and sheep farm in a place called Warren in western NSW. My husband works on the farm full time and I run a business off-farm. We would need a nanny to work 5 days a week. At the moment, Eliza, Maggie and Charlie are at school 5 days a week, while August is at home. Days will involve getting the kids to and from school and after school activities, making meals, organising lunches, assisting with household work (e.g. cleaning/washing clothes etc) and looking after August on her days at home.
You will get 2 days off per week (although at times, you may be required to work on the weekend and take time off in lieu during the week).
We live on a farm, 45kms from a small town so it is quite remote. You will have your own living quarters close (but separate) to our family home. The accommodation has everything you may need (lounge room/bathroom/kitchenette). We look forward to welcoming you in to our family but also recognise the importance of allowing you to live independently and have some peaceful downtime when not at work! We are also about an hour from a big town called Dubbo with lots of shops/services etc.
If you are looking to the experience authentic Australian outback, this is a good opportunity. Lots of kangaroos, emus and wide open starry skies. It's a quiet, rural community so not the best place for people looking for a raging social life.
Our ideal candidate will be responsible, energectic, have a flexible approach to work and be able to show initiative.
Opportunity for visa sign off too.
