Full Time Nanny Job in Devon

Job description

Nanny/garden help required for warm and friendly family living on a beautiful
small holding on the edge of Dartmoor - with option to live on site in separate
studio accommodation. Initially, the role will be 50% nannying, 50% gardening.
Both parents work from home, and they need help with their son for a few hours each day. They are hoping to grow the family, so time spent gardening will decrease and be replaced by more time with the children. Both parents are keen that a lot of the children's time is spent outdoors, so an interest in wildlife, animals and outdoor play is very important.
The family host a toddler group here on site once a week and will soon be setting up a forest school club, which they are really keen that the nanny gets involved with.
You will be:
• kind, gentle, relaxed and intelligent person.
• organised and efficient
• has good initiative and a natural enjoyment of engaging with children and babies
• an enthusiastic and confident person, with an interest in wildlife, animals and outdoor play.

Reliability and commitment is key, as they would very much like for someone to feel like part of the family by the time the next one comes along. The farm is set in a river valley on the edge of Dartmoor, is extremely beautiful and fairly wild, and is only 4 miles from Tavistock. The family keep animals (a pony, sheep, chickens, geese, pigs, ducks and goats) and have a lovely big gentle dog. They are looking for someone who is happy to 'muck in' and support, with some early mornings, evenings and weekend and to help along with accompanying the family on holidays or on trips, as required.
There's a fairly lively atmosphere in this rural wilderness - 3 other people work with in the house, 4 people work in the gardens, on the land and with the animals and there are 4 families living across the 3 farms.
As there is a lot going on there, there are opportunities to get involved with other tasks or projects as part of the role depending on your skills, experience and interests.
On site accommodation is available in form of studio apartment.
