A kind, down-to-earth family of four based in Asheville, NC is seeking a dynamic nanny/family assistant to join them in caring for their children!

Location: Asheville, NC
Ages of children: 1-year-old, 4-year-old twins
Start date/Contract dates: As soon as they find the right fit!
Schedule: Full-time, guaranteeing 40 hours per week with the general schedule falling on 4-5 days per week, including Monday and Tuesday and every other weekend, from 7:30 to 5:30pm. A candidate who is able to accommodate flexibility in schedule as the children alternate between parents’ houses every other weekend will be appreciated, and the candidate can always anticipate 2-to-3 days off/week in exchange. Some travel will also be asked in advance and appreciated!
Compensation: The family is offering $30-35/hour based on the 40-hour/week schedule, which equates to an annualized base compensation of $63-73k/year, dependent on experience and the agreed-upon schedule. The family may be open to candidates who are seeking a higher compensation package commensurate with experience.
Benefits: The family is open to providing benefits including paid time off, paid holidays, health insurance and/or a health insurance stipend, a vehicle for professional use, relocation, and/or housing assistance based on candidate need and the full benefits package.
Live-in/Live-out: Live-out

Household dynamic:
These three sweet, happy-go-lucky kids are excited to find a nanny to join their family! Ranging in age from 1 to 4, the children enjoy playing outdoors, reading books, and spending time together. The family describes their home as being very open-minded and spiritual, and they are lifelong learners who love being out in nature! A candidate who is like-minded and excited to foster a down-to-earth environment at home will be a wonderful addition to the team.
Dad works from home during the day but understands that not interrupting the flow of the day is key with young kids. The family also works with a personal assistant who is an integral part of their support system, so someone who is independent yet confident in collaborating with others will be important. The family is excited to find someone who can grow and thrive alongside their children and household for years to come!

Ideal candidate:
This position is ideal for a candidate who enjoys a balance of working with children and supporting a busy household! Someone who brings attention to detail, a calm presence, and warm energy to their role will be valued. On days when the children are at their dad’s house, childcare will be the primary responsibility of the candidate. When the children are with their mom, the role will shift to focus on assistance with child-related housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry, and light personal and family assistant tasks. A candidate who enjoys a dynamic work environment will thrive in this role!
While not a requirement for the role, the family would strongly prefer to work with a candidate who is fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19. Familiarity with Montessori, RIE, Nonviolent Communication, or Love and Logic would also be a wonderful plus for this family!

3 years of professional childcare experience
Valid driver’s license
Knowledge and experience with age-appropriate developmental milestones
Comfortability in preparing basic meals for children
Experience and comfortability with family assisting tasks
