Full-Time Nanny for Newborn: $90-100K, Benefits, Living Provided

Cow Hollow • San Francisco, CA Full Time

Family living in Cow Hollow of San Francisco with newborn girl is seeking a professional, experienced and educated Full-Time Nanny. Schedule will be 50 hours per week on five out of seven days per week. Nanny will receive two consecutive days off per week. Family will ensure nanny has schedules approximately two months in advance, but flexibility is required with scheduling as last minute trips and events occasionally arise. In the future, schedule will likely be spilt between two full-time nannies to ensure the family has seven day per week coverage. Nannies will work three or four days per week at approximately 6:00/7:00am – 6:00/11:00pm. Nearly all months this schedule will ensure each nanny has two weekends off and travels half of the time with family. Nannies should be comfortable working many days consecutively (e.g., if traveling for two to three weeks at a time, only one nanny will travel with family and the other nanny is off work). The position requires extreme flexibility as family’s schedule changes at various times in the year (e.g., summer, travel, etc.). Approximately four to six weeks of domestic and/or international travel per year is required (approximately four weeks of international travel to Europe annually). Applicants need to be honest, trustworthy, understand the importance of maintaining discretion (confidentiality agreement is required), comfortable with small dog, collaborative and experienced working with other domestic staff (full-time housekeeper, full-time nanny, etc.) and experienced working with Principals that are at residence often (discreet and staying out of the way is important).
