Family's Introduction to Nanny

Job Description

ABOUT US We’re an energetic, athletic, world-travelled Turkish-American couple living about 20-40 minutes outside of Istanbul (depending on traffic!) in Kemer Country, in a lovely home deep in the quiet Belgrade forest. We have a bright, chatty, loving and sweet 18 month old daughter.

SEEKING A friendly nanny-housekeeper who has experience with younger children to join our family in a long-term, preferably 6-day a week, live-in position. We’d love a candidate looking to settle in with a family for several years.

ABOUT THE HOUSEHOLD We have a cook/butler who also shares in housekeeping and takes care of shopping, a gardener, a handyman who is often on the premises, and my husband has his own PA/driver; I drive myself.

We predominately speak English in the household between us (mother and father) but welcome a candidate who will also share their mother tongue with the child, particularly if it is Spanish. Our cook and gardener have limited English but have always been able to communicate well with our English-speaking staff over the years.

We have a few outdoor (guard) dogs that are tended by the gardener and one family pets, an extremely friendly and sweet Boston Terrier, who require feeding and letting out from time to time (a responsibility we all share).

Candidate would have a private, dedicated bedroom with TV and bathroom next door to the child's room, as well as access to the home's pool and nearby club facilities (pool, tennis, gym, etc.). We have excellent internet service and will provide a local tel. The setting we live in is very family friendly and neighborhood-oriented, with many expats and international families and nannies. Very unique for Istanbul.

WHAT WE ARE SEEKING We are seeking individuals who are honest, energetic, independent, resourceful, have the ability to be self-sufficient, and bring a positive attitude and strength in character.

We absolutely welcome this individual as a member of the family and are warm, open and friendly with everyone in our employ. We value individuals with a true commitment to their role. We envision this person as a mother's companion and assistant, a second set of loving hands to share in the care and growth of our little girl.

Our daughter is screen-free, so a candidate who loves spending time creatively and actively with children is a must. We live in the forest so a person who is active and loves the outdoors, gardening in the summer, swimming, yoga, etc will be right at home with us!

ABOUT THE ROLE For the time being our daughter goes to a Montessori school in the mornings. I am a teacher at the same school so we return together in the afternoons. I am a hands-on and available mother, but am seeking someone to help with afternoons and evenings, things such as meal prep and keeping up after our daughter (toys, laundry, etc), and to allow me to take some personal time in the day to attend to household affairs and personal projects.

Housekeeping duties would predominately focus on laundry & ironing, tidying such as bed-making, and a dusting/vacuuming once a week.

A confident and licensed driver would be a wonderful bonus but not 100% essential.

We are flexible on vacation/time off and open to discussing on an individual basis. Even with negotiated, set vacation time, we are extremely flexible when it comes to trips/time off that may come up for say, health, weddings, family, friends, a nice clearing of the head over a long weekend, etc.

TRAVEL We love skiing and spending time at sea, and take at least one annual trip to do both (spring skiing and July/August boat trip). Our own yacht (40m) is under renovation and we anticipate spending 2-3 week-long stretches at sea in the Med during the summers initially, and ultimately around the world at different points in the year in the coming years. As such, we would like a candidate open to spending durations of time on a boat who is a confident swimmer.

We do anticipate that this individual will join us on trips from time to time, as we travel wide and often. Trips to the US to see the grandparents (Chicago) friends (New York), to the Far East for two weeks at the end of the year during Christmas/New Years', and throughout Europe and the Middle East for 2-3 day stretches are virtually guaranteed. As such, a Schengen Visa and US Visa would be ideal to obtain before joining us but we can also assist in the paperwork required.
