Parents of three children aged six, ten and 11 are searching for a ‘festival nanny’ to accompany them to a few festivals this summer so that they can enjoy the event child-free.
The advert was posted to Childcare.co.uk last week after their current nanny handed her notice in.
And this isn’t your standard nanny job either – the pay is amazing and there are also perks involved.
The parents are offering to pay £500 per festival plus festival entry, food, drink and accommodation.
Although they are also on the hunt for a full-time nanny, their main priority for now is finding someone to look after the kids while they enjoy the festival.
The parents describe themselves as being ‘avid festival-goers’ who ‘love to get involved in the powerful energetic atmosphere live music provides’ – but they find it difficult to fully enjoy themselves when they have to look after their three children, which is why they want to bring a nanny along.
The nanny will be expected to take on full childcare duties during the festivals, including getting the children up and dressed, feeding and bathing them and keeping them entertained throughout the day and evening – as well as sharing accommodation with them.
The parents say that they will be checking in with the nanny and children, but will mostly be away enjoying the festivals.
If the nanny wants to – and if the children like them – there’s also an opportunity to secure a full-time role with the family after the summer, in Kent.
Richard Conway, founder of Childcare.co.uk said: ‘I don’t think it’s unusual for families to take their nanny on holiday with them, so that the parents can relax and enjoy themselves, so why should festivals be any different?
‘It’s quite obvious from the advert that this family is desperate to find a suitable nanny ASAP, otherwise their summer of partying is at risk.
‘I encourage any childcare professionals who enjoy live music to apply, this could be a great opportunity to earn some good money and see some amazing musicians play!’
