The right candidate will be a confident, energetic, experienced, firm but fair nanny who has lots of common sense with great organisation skills, a good sense of humour and most importantly have lots of patience and love for the two boys.

  • Cleaning/hoovering

  • Taking care of the washing

  • Sorting out the dishwasher

  • Menu planning and shopping

  • Any errands

Thursday 12.30 - 7.30pm

Friday 12.30 - 7.30pm


During school holidays the hours will be Monday - Friday 8/10am until 6.30/7pm depending on need – it just requires some flexibility 


If the nanny needs more hours term time, I am happy to make every day 12.30 -7.30pm

The Nanny must be a confident driver (school is 30 mins away) and happy to drive to various clubs etc. The Family  wants someone to take control and do the thinking but also works with mum to ensure a lovely and organised environment for the children.

Duties – standard nanny caring role

  • Taking the children to clubs, organising uniforms and equipment 

  • Organising wardrobes, buying clothes/shoes

  • Personal care – making sure J is showered and washed! C still needs help and likes to play in the bath

  • Taking to the dentist 

  • Organising holiday packing/unpacking for the kids

We have a team at Hill Top, Alice the stable manager helps do school drop offs and we also have a gardener Jon who has worked here for 5 years. We would like someone who is a team player

As the boys are of different ages, they both have different interests, therefore the Nanny should be able to adapt to assist the boys.  The one thing they have in common is they are both very active and enjoy being outside, so a love of the outdoors would be a huge advantage.

Family have a cottage in Whitby, so the ability to travel there is an advantage.


The Nanny is required:

  • to have plenty of experience

  • Have a DBS on the update service ( or willing to get one done, which I can help with).
