[ssba]A wonderful family we have worked with before located in central Madison (near Camp Randall) is seeking a nanny/household manager to begin at the end of August. This busy professional couple has two daughters that will be 9 and 11 this summer. The needs are primarily after school for childcare including driving to activities, organizing homework, and being there to help support the children in everyday needs/tasks. They will need the nanny to have availability for early release and no-school days- this is very important. Household management duties include laundry, grocery shopping, errands, picking up kids supplies, etc. These duties can be flexible hours. They have cleaners that come to do all the deep cleaning but like to have the house picked up and organized for when the parents get home (ex: surface cleaning, light straightening up and/or getting the kids to help straighten up and put away toys/items away.
Although the nanny will not usually be working full time the family pays a generous full time salary of $725 per week gross/~38k per year, taxes will be taken out.
Benefits include: 4 weeks paid vacation (2 weeks family choice, 2 weeks nanny choice), paid sick days, paid holidays and mileage reimbursement. Nanny MUST have a car and good driving record. Ideal personality is fun-loving, organized, extremely reliable, good communications skills and available for a long term commitment.
Note: nanny must have availability 4-6 nights per month for overnight care in case both parents are called in to work (this has happened about 4 times in the last 11 years but they are focused on having someone available just in case). Wonderful family and current long term nanny that we placed serves as an excellent reference for them.
