Full Time Nanny/Housekeeper Job in Devon

Job description

A nanny is required to provide Care and support for a girl with special needs. She is mobile and likes to engage and explore. The role is full time, 5 days per week at 35 hours per week. The working day is 0915 to 1615, but you can choose which 5 days of the week you wish to work. In addition, 1 babysit per month. The role is predominantly care of the child with some light housekeeping, mostly to take place when she is at school (2 mornings a week).

The ideal nanny will have some special needs experience as a starting place. There will be a long induction with the parents so to understand the little girl's needs. In the long run, the role will be mostly sole charge but both the parents do work from home.

The little girl is globally delayed and non-verbal but is mobile. She is outgoing and sensitive and enjoys the company of adults. She is keen and eager to learn and has a school room within the house. She has severe epilepsy but this is very well controlled with daily medication that the parents administer morning and evening and has had only had one seizure in the past 6 months
