Nanny Job Ref:  PLI/Bermuda

Fantastic opportunity for a South African nanny to work for a wonderful South African family living in Bermuda. They have two boys aged 10 & 7, both at full-time school. The family is bilingual, and would like their children raised with knowledge of both English and Afrikaans, therefore, the family requires that the successful applicant be able to converse in both languages and assist in teaching the children Afrikaans.

The family travel extensively so you need to be available to travel for various periods of time at short notice. Travel will generally be to Europe, South Africa, Canada and the Caribbean so for this reason a South African nanny with a UK/EU passport is essential.

You will need CPR/1st aid training and be willing to obtain a Bermuda driver’s license (so automatic driver is essential). A minimum of 2 years childcare experience, a strong swimmer and someone with relevant childcare experience is also a requirement.

Duties will include nursery duties for the boys, the school runs, extra-curricular activities and preparing the boys’ evening meal.  They do have a housekeeper and would like someone who likes pets, they have a cat. The ideal candidate should be caring, responsible, enthusiastic and reliable.  This role would suit someone who is fit and active and who enjoys the outdoors.  The boys love sport (cricket, football, swimming and tennis).

You will be required to work 40-45 hours a week during term time but must be flexible to include evenings & occasional weekends.  During holidays when you will generally be travelling you will be required to work full-time hours.  You have one Friday a month off to have a long weekend.

Separate accommodation if offered within the ground of the property.  You will have a scooter available for your use in your spare time to get around the island.

Salary offered is US$33,000 gross per year plus a food allowance of US$6000 per year and a discretionary bonus at the end of the year.  This equates to a monthly salary of US$2,935.00 after tax (£2,348 after tax per month).  Starts ASAP subject to work permit application time, a cost which the family will cover.  Family is very well known to our agency and have an excellent nanny record.
