Professionals in the Recruitment of Nannies & Governesses

Sherborne, Dorset. Separate Accommodation.

We are looking for an experienced and professional sole charge nanny for a lovely down to earth family of five. This is a live in role, but you will be provided with your own separate accommodation. You will be required to work a 50 hour week from Monday to Friday. Including two nights babysitting in the week.

You will be looking after three children who attend full time school locally. They are aged 6, 8 & 11 years old. They lead very active lifestyles, so it is important that you are highly organised and on the ball. Your duties will include school runs, wardrobe management, taking the children to afterschool activities, cooking healthy balanced meals and the children’s laundry (the housekeeper will assist with laundry). You will also oversee homework and help when needed, manage their extracurricular activities, and ensure they practice their piano playing. You will also be expected to prepare children’s birthday and Christmas parties, sourcing, gifts, arranging play dates and sleep overs and day trips along with diary management. During the school term the mother would also like help with some PA duties.


The family have a dog, chickens and the children like to go riding. Therefore, it is important that you are comfortable around animals. The family are looking for someone enthusiastic with lots of energy and good communication skills. Someone who is fun to be with and has a happy and calm disposition. You must be a confident driver with good time keeping skills.


You will be provided with a car and your own one bedroom apartment within the grounds which is solely for the nanny and all bills will be covered.


If you speak fluent Swedish this would be a bonus but definitely not essential.


Salary depending on experience. £350 – 500 net per week. Overtime paid extra.  Gross annual salary £22,300 to £34,500
