English-speaking Live-In/Out Temporary Baby Nanny to Finland

Location: Tuusula, Finland

Hours: 30–35 per week

Gross salary: Up to 2 273 € per month (depending on experience and hours)

Start date: 1 August 2022

Duration: Until mid-October 2022

Language skills: Good/fluent English

Driving licence: No

Age of children: 10 months (and another child who is not in the nanny’s care)

Accommodation: Live out or if live in, a private bedroom and shared bathroom in the family home

Description: This family lives in Tuusula, a quiet area near Kerava (7 km) and about 50 minutes by public transportation to the capital Helsinki. They are looking for a nanny to care for their 10-month-old baby. Their eldest child goes to nursery and is not the nanny’s responsibility.

This is a temporary position from the beginning of August until mid-October. The working hours are Mon-Fri 9 am to 3/4 pm and there is some flexibility on this depending on the nanny’s availability.

Duties include all aspects of the baby’s care. You’ll be expected to provide age-appropriate activities at home and outdoors, serve pre-cooked meals, and ensure the baby’s safety and well-being. The baby is generally very happy, a good eater and sleeper, and has an established routine. Both parents will be working from home so you must be comfortable with this.

To apply for this role, you should speak good or fluent English. The family welcomes speaking Finnish to the baby but this is not a must. A qualification in childcare is not required but you should have at least some experience looking after babies of similar age and checkable references from previous employment in childcare. Due to the position starting so soon, you must have either an EU passport or work permit for Finland already as there is no time to wait for the work permit process for non-EU nationals.

The family can employ either a local daily candidate or they can offer accommodation for a candidate who wishes to move to Tuusula. There is a private bedroom with a toilet next to the room and a shared bathroom in the family home for the nanny. You are also welcome to use other facilities such as the garden with a barbecue area and a jacuzzi in the summer or the sauna.

Governess (private teacher) positions available

We offer Governess positions mostly through our partner agency. Please enquire about current positions available.

Au Pair positions available

We regularly have Au Pair positions in Australia and Switzerland, for example. Please enquire about open positions. We cannot advertise all open positions as there are dozens of them and their availability changes quickly.

Finnish-Speaking Au Pair to Zurich, Switzerland

Hours: On average 30 per week

Pocket money: 800 CHF (788 €) net per month (gross salary 1 800 CHF per month)

Accommodation: Spacious bedroom on the top floor with wifi; bathroom shared with children

Description: A family living in Adliswil, about 20 min from Zürich by train. They are looking for a Finnish-speaking Au Pair.

The two children are at school full-time but their daily schedules vary so the Au Pair works 7,5 hours on two weekdays and 3-4 hours on three weekdays. There is also babysitting every other Saturday evening but the family can be flexible with this if the Au Pair has other commitments.

The childcare duties include taking children to/from school and activities, cooking their meals, and planning children’s activities and playdates. There are also light housekeeping duties, such as cleaning the kitchen, laundry with some ironing, some grocery shopping, and generally supporting the parents in the day-to-day running of the household.

The family is looking for a flexible and proactive Au Pair. The children are hoping for a person who likes cycling and is good at drawing and playing chess! Their other interests include sports, music, arts and crafts, and spending time outdoors and in nature. The family also has two cats.

They have successfully employed nannies and one Au Pair before. Your accommodation is a spacious and bright bedroom on the top floor, offering good privacy. You can spend time in the lounge or garden on your time off, and they also have a hot tub. You are welcome to use their car on your time off whenever the family doesn’t need it, and bus stops and train station are nearby. The family will also invite you along when they go out and on trips (for example skiing in winter).
