WSN is so excited to welcome back these return clients who we have worked with for YEARS! They have 3 amazing children, 5-year-old twins and a 6.5-year-old, and we have placed NCS and Nannies with them over the years. The kids are super sweet, fun, and energetic; they are in school full-time and thriving! They are seeking full-time support, primarily weekdays (they have a weekend nanny), but you should be up for occasional weekends if needed, especially when traveling, as their weekend nanny cannot travel with them. These dual working parents are very hands on with their kids, but as we know – it takes a village! Both parents travel often for work, and therefore they need a solid nanny to provide stability at home when one or both parents is out of town, including working longer days and staying overnight with the kids. This is a very child-centric role as they have housekeepers and a chef; however, they are looking for someone who is willing to pitch in and work as a team with the other household staff to ensure the home is operating smoothly at all times. They are incredibly neat and tidy – everything has a place – so you should be innately organized and able to follow and maintain systems. Regular daily duties will include after school pick up and driving to extracurriculars (using family vehicle), very simple meal prep for the kids (reheating chef prepared meals), bathing the kids and getting them ready for bed (typically in bed by 7/7:30), and light housekeeping (keeping kids rooms, bathrooms, play areas neat and tidy *housekeepers will handle deep cleaning*, loading/unloading dishwasher, kid laundry as needed, etc.).
LOCATION: Brentwood (Los Angeles, CA), 90049
SCHEDULE: 40 hours guaranteed. Typical schedule when kids are in school is Mon-Fri 1:30pm – 7:30/8pm. During school breaks (holidays, summer, etc), sick days, and travel, your schedule will require full days (think 7-7). MUST be willing to stay later 10/11pm some weeknights, but this schedule is planned far in advance and you will have ample notice.
COMPENSATION: $35-37/hr gross + applicable OT (on payroll).
- 5+ years full-time experience
- Expereince working with 2+ kids at once

- Experience working in Staffed Household preferred
- Pet friendly – they have one small hypoallergenic pup

- Extremely Discreet + Respectful of Privacy – Willing to sign NDA
- Flexible + Adaptable – Okay w/Last Minute Plans
The ideal candidate for this job is mature, responsible and seasoned, yet energetic, playful and active enough to keep up with these 3 kids! The parents are very low key and their home is their sanctuary; if you have a calm, easygoing, and “chill” personality, where you don’t have to fill the silence with words and can easily read the room, you will be the right fit for them. They very much treat their household staff with respect, but maintain clear employer/employee boundaries. For example, if parents are home at dinner, you can expect that they’ll have dinner as a family, while you find other things to do or eat in the other room. Their family time is very important to them, so you shouldn’t be offended by not partaking in family activities. Instead, your proactive and resourceful nature should kick in, finding things to do without being asked – think organizing play room, going through kids clothes, throwing in laundry, taking inventory of kids things, or planning an activity for the next day. Strong communication skills are KEY, and you shouldn’t shy away from constructive feedback. Mom is a straight shooter and will communicate regularly to ensure expectations are being met, and frustrations never build up on either end of the relationship. If you consider yourself to be down to earth, professional, supportive, and are looking for a long-term position with a wonderful family – don’t wait – Apply TODAY!
