Job Description

Hello. We are a British family living in Lausanne, Switzerland. We have 4 children (22, 20,14 and 12 years old, but only 2 living at home) but are primarily looking for a loving and patient nanny/au pair to help with our beautiful 14 year old daughter, Klara, who has Rett Syndrome. The job is live-in and consists of an 8 hour day: 7.00am to 11.30 pm and then 4.00 pm to 7.30 pm. Klara goes to a special school but we need your help getting her up in the morning, getting her washed and dressed and giving her breakfast.

Klara's school starts at 9.00 am and finishes at 4.00 pm. Therefore after she has left for school (at 7.45am) you will have time to do a general tidying up/ collect laundry and light house work, before your break begins at 11.30am. We have a cleaner who comes to do the big house-hold cleaning.

Before Klara's return from school (at 5.00pm) you will need to prepare a healthy meal to give her at 6.00 pm and then give her a bath. She goes to bed very easily at 7.30 pm as she is very tired after school. Any over time we pay at extra babysitting rates.

We provide the employees' private room with kitchenette, own bathroom and own, private entrance and use of a car for outings with Klara and for the employees' personal use in free time.

Klara is non-verbal, suffers from epilepsy and needs to hold a hand to walk but she is a very sweet child who adores people, music, going to the movies, swimming, walks in the forest and by the lake and new experiences (we keep our pool heated so that it's always warm for her!). Previous experience with disabled/special needs' children is preferable but not an absolute requirement, but a caring, patient and happy personality is.

References required.

Many thanks for your interest.
