LOS ANGELES, CA – NATIONWIDE SEARCH- Celebrity couple looking for a FULL-TIME LIVE-IN TRAVEL NANNY / MANNY willing to work a very FLUID SCHEDULE and join their wonderful family for the long haul! They are both actors so you will be based in LA, but traveling is frequent (typically living in for lengthy periods of time in cities such as: Atlanta, Austin, Vancouver, etc!) It is possible that you might live overseas as well (Australia, for example might be on the radar). With that said, you are guaranteed (and typically working up to) 45 hrs a week (or 180 hrs a month). Pay is DOE and includes annual bonus, paid time off, etc. You will be responsible for all duties pertaining to childcare & helping the functioning of the household including but not limited to the child’s laundry, taking out the trash & light housekeeping, emptying & loading the dishwasher, cooking, swimming, running errands, wrangle her to and from activities (post covid), and helping with virtual school and homework, etc. Candidate must always be prepared, and one-step ahead of the game! Someone who has a fly-by-the-seat- of their pants mentality is a must! They have one seven-year-old daughter who is musical (she loves musical theater, piano, and dance), creative, loves to swim and run. She reads a lot, is a great student, and generally independent.
They are truly looking for a partnership- "teamwork makes the dreamwork" is their motto! Ultimately, the parents will be the decision makers, but they are very open to collaborating on education, extracurriculars, travel tips and suggestions, and even when it comes to discipline/behavioral concerns (note: they don't have many as she's generally pretty great!). Their biggest request is that this candidate have maximum flexibility. You must be available to work evenings, weekends, overnights, and holidays as needed! This doesn't mean that you will work ALL of them, but you do need to be prepared to! Honesty and transparency with requests and opinions is also paramount. Someone who can speak up with concerns and feedback when needed is extremely important!
They are looking for someone very flexible and not bound by traditional scheduling- there is no rhythm to their schedule! Candidate must also be comfortable being solo with the kiddo for a few days if parents have to travel for work (which they will often). Ultimately, the ideal candidate is someone excited to travel and live in potentially multiple different cities i.e. someone comfortable exploring, adventuring, and living out of a suitcase sometimes (as they do!). Someone that can get excited about spontaneity will make this a successful ever-lasting relationship! There is the possibility that they will be adding to their family in the near future, so it is preferred that this person also has newborn experience and is willing to take on the duties of another child (increase in pay will also be provided with the added expectations).
Ideal candidate has a strong passion for babies and or background in Early Childhood Development/ Education. They are looking for someone who wholeheartedly loves children—loves to be fun & silly; but is also able to provide structure, consistency & stability; is able to facilitate educational & fun games and activities, etc. with little to no direction. They are hoping for this person to make a minimum of a two-year commitment. Their last nanny was with them for five years and has become a member of the family! You will most likely shadow her as you make the transition into this role, so must be flexible to start beginning of January and go full charge January 15th! Please note that althought this timeline is ideal, they are flexible for the absolute best fit!
