Live-In Travel Nanny Needed

 In Job Book

Adventurous, entrepreneurial, and loving first-time parents seeking full-time, live-in energized, thoughtful and intuitive nanny. 

Location: Jackson, WY + Travel

Experience: 10+ years

Compensation: $25-30 an hour

First time parents are seeking a full-time, live-in travel nanny for their baby who is expected to arrive on September 21, 2021. The anticipated start date for this role is January 2022, as they will have a newborn care specialist for the first four months. The ideal candidate would be willing to care for the child six days a week and be open to changes, sometimes last-minute, within the schedule. The family spends January-March and July-September in Jackson and the rest of the year traveling (Caribbean, NYC, Italy, Japan, etc.). Must be energized, flexible and adaptable given their spontaneous lifestyle and be comfortable around a variety of people, as they love to entertain. 

Both parents work from home and plan to be hands-on. There are times when the nanny will have sole care and times when the parents will want one-on-one time with their child. The couple is hoping to welcome the nanny into their home as a contributing member of the family. Someone who is considerate, service-minded, and has a “how can I help” mindset. There will likely be occasional duties such as unpacking packages/deliveries, helping with the dog (Australian Shepherd), light laundry, tidying up, and errands. However, the couple has a Chef Monday-Friday, housekeeping services 2-3 times a week, and a personal assistant. They seek a nanny who has many of the following qualities- loving, caring, intuitive, self-aware, self-sufficient, reliable, loyal, effective communicator, experienced, wise, energetic, and organized. Someone who has newborn experience and is willing to commit long-term and integrate as a core member of the family for 5+ years is desired. 

Residency in the US is essential (US citizen with valid passport or a green card holder, couple would consider sponsoring visa if needed but not preferred). Must have a valid driver’s license and clean driving record. A family car is provided while on the job and experience driving in the snow is a plus.

We personally enjoy giving back to the community, hiking, traveling, and skiing. Our favorite parenting books are Bringing Up Bebe and Conscious Parenting.
