The Ideal Sitter for this Job
REQUIREMENTS: Driver’s license, clean driving record, has extensive experience driving in the city and is comfortable doing so. Is comfortable getting a car in and out of a public garage, as well as driving someone else’s car. If you don't drive, that's ok! Be an awesome person who can brighten the boy's day and get him to school fed and in a timely manner and it's yours :) Must be willing to be trained on seizure medication protocol. Has hands-on experience nannying in the city (PT or FT). Understands the fast paced level of nannying in the city. Knows the ins and outs of public transit and is comfortable using it. Someone who is really on the ball and pays attention to detail and to the kids fully (example: at the playground the boy needs to have 100% attention on him due to his balance issues.) Is level headed in case of emergency and knows how to handle emergency situations with grace. Key for weekends especially is having someone who can come up with “itineraries” for the day without a lot of guidance. Someone super creative and comfortable with creating kid-friendly plans with lots of flexibility. PLUSES: A background in special ed or experience working with kids with special needs is a plus! Someone super attentive and engaging who can really bond with the kids and grow with the family. The boy needs a bit more attention at times, so someone really attentive and mindful of their time together. Someone familiar with the city and getting around with kids via subway, Uber, driving, or taxi is super important. Someone proactive with a can-do attitude who isn't afraid to jump in and take charge. A hard working and dedicated person is also an ideal candidate. Would love someone who can speak another language (Spanish or French a plus!) and/or can bring new experiences and cultures into the home.
The core schedule is Monday to Friday, from 7:30-930 AM, and Saturday and Sunday, from 9 AM to 3 PM. Flexibility is a plus!
