We currently have two boys (5 and 3-year-old) and a third monster in the oven. Our family is moving to Quebec City on August 30, 2021, and so we are looking for a nanny to join the family and assist us with various daily tasks between 25 and 50 hours per week, depending on your availabilities.
The job includes the following responsibilities : 1) Nanny : Taking care of the kids in the morning and / or afternoon, bring them to daycare around 9 am and take them back home between 4 : 30 pm and 5 : 30 pm, play with them at home or outside, give them dinner and bath, babysit them at home when they cannot attend daycare, etc.
Once the newborn joins the family, you will also help taking care of him and eventually babysit him at home until he / she goes to daycare.
2) Cooking : Grocery shopping, preparing varied and quality lunches and dinners. We are foodies and are looking for someone who is passionate about good food.
3) Housekeeping duties, washing clothes and dishes, cleaning the fridge, changing the boys' sheets, making the beds, etc.
We will also hire a cleaning person for heavy cleaning duties. The work schedule is subject to discussion and will depend also on your availabilities.
However, once the schedule is determined, reliability is really important for us. If you work full time, a typical day would start in the morning around 7 : 00 am or 8 : 00 am until the afternoon, or early in the afternoon until 7 pm.
There will always be a possibility for extra hours if you want, including night shifts and weekends, or even joining the family for a vacation abroad if you are interested, but this will always be optional.
You will need a driver's license and ideally, you would speak both French and English, but this is not a requirement and either language is fine.
We speak mostly French at home but our kids currently have an English-speaking nanny. If you are a reliable, autonomous, flexible, and positive person who loves kids, the outdoors and quality food, this should be a fun job for you.
We pay 2 weeks of vacation per year and an accounting firm takes care of issuing the pay stubs every two weeks as well as the tax returns each year.
We look forward to welcoming you in our family.
