  • Overview

    A laid-back but always on the move family based in Wilton, Connecticut is seeking a fun, flexible, energetic, and eager nanny to care for their 7-year-old and soon-to-be-2-year-old daughters.

     

    Flexibility is the name of the game with this position! Both parents are equestrians and their jobs can take them on the road frequently and for extended periods of time. The perfect candidate will be able to create a routine within their flexible lifestyle. The family has found their home thrives in an environment that isn’t too rigid and so someone who can go with the flow would be appreciated. 

     

    Right along with flexibility, the family is seeking someone who is also energetic and eager to work with the children. The family describes themselves as "citizens of the world who have landed back in smalltown America." They enjoy a fun and lively lifestyle, being active and adventurous and travel frequently. They hope that their nanny enjoys these things too! Both children speak Portuguese with their father, so an interest in languages would be a huge plus! The family hopes to find a nanny who is comfortable with some family assisting tasks like grocery shopping and cooking simple, healthy, fresh meals.

     

    This is a full-time, live-in position. Though their home base is in Wilton, Connecticut, the first three months of this position will take place in Florida, where their future nanny can expect a more routine environment and schedule. While in Florida, they will be providing accommodations at a home nearby where their staff lives. The family is happy to provide housing at their home in Connecticut but would also consider a live-out situation if the candidate prefers.

     

    The ideal schedule will generally fall on Mondays through Fridays from 8:30am to 5:00pm, with three hours on Saturdays.  Opportunities for overtime and additional hours will be available and the family appreciates a candidate who can be flexible to adjust the schedule as needed. The family is offering a competitive hourly wage as well as generous paid time off and sick days. They will also be providing a nanny vehicle. They hope to find the perfect, travel-ready adventure nanny to join their family by mid-December!
