Nanny/Housekeeper Roles

Nanny candidates for your family…

  • Nationwide Staff Available

Having a nanny is now almost a standard for many families, especially those who work long hours, travel frequently for work or who have long commutes each day.  Our nanny positions are split into two groups; nanny cooks, and nanny housekeeper.  The two are very similar, however the job roles are somewhat different in expectations.  As usual, all our potential nannies have a wealth of childcare experience and will be carefully checked to ensure we present the right candidates to you.

Nanny/Housekeeper Roles

We provide staff who live-in or out of their employer’s houses…

Over 25 years ago, we created a new job category – ‘nanny housekeeper’ – as an answer to the spiralling costs of employing both a nanny and a housekeeper. We realised that, with children attending full-time school at a much earlier age, there was little point in employing nannies who, whilst their charges were out of the house, would be under-employed. It is generally accepted that nannies will not undertake housework unless it specifically relates to the children in their care.

A nanny housekeeper, on the other hand, will undertake housekeeping duties as well as childcare but, most importantly, always ensuring that the children’s welfare comes first. They are generally professional housekeepers who, whilst not being qualified nannies, have many years of childcare experience [often gained by bringing up their own children].

When not taking care of the children, they will, at the very least, clean the house and wash and iron clothes. However, many will undertake additional tasks – care of special floor and kitchen surfaces, care of antique furniture and other special items, shopping for groceries, dealing with tradesmen and contractors, looking after pets, cooking for the children and, above all, ensuring the smooth running of the household. Please visit the Job Descriptions page for a full list of duties.

Nanny/Cook Roles

On the whole, the nanny cook is what many families think of when they are looking for a nanny to care for their children.  Slightly different to the nanny housekeeper. the nanny cook performs all the expected roles that a nanny would, but with the addition that they will plan, prepare and serve meals to the children in their care.  Please find out more about our nanny roles in the job descriptions page, or enquire today to discover our carefully curated candidates.
