An ultra-rich Russian-American family are looking for an ‘experienced nanny’ to live in their eight-bedroom Knightsbridge home and travel the world with them.
High-end recruitment company Polo & Tweed advertised the job on Facebook, saying the nanny will be required to look after a three-year-old boy and his nine-month-old sister for a busy multilingual family at their fully-staffed home.
The advert explains the full-time nanny will be expected to work 24/7 seven days a week long-term according to a rota, in exchange for perks including opportunities to travel the world and a £70,000 salary.
While shifts require intensive focus of the children, the rota allows for the nanny to then have seven days off – the downside being that acommodation is only provided for their working week.

The listing reveals the successful candidate will be working alternate shifts to their other full-time rota nanny.
Applicants must be willing to work 24 hours for seven days, while be willing to be on call at night should the children need assistance.
The busy household who are Russian and American, are beginning their search for a nanny because the maternity nurse who was caring for the baby is due to finish her contract.
