The family posted an ad for a live-in nanny on Childcare.co.uk. The post states the couple have two children, aged 5 and 7, and live in a “lovely, spacious, historic property in a remote spot with spectacular views.”
The job description entails,”preparing breakfast, getting the children ready for school, dropping off and picking up from school and assisting after school, including helping with homework and getting them ready for bed.”
Because both parents are required to travel for work, the nanny would be alone in the house with the children up to four nights at a time.
In addition to a $63,000 salary and 28 vacation days, the family is offering qualified individuals a “comfortable room with en-suite bathroom and private kitchen.”
But there is just one other little thing…….
“Five nannies have left the role in the last year, each citing supernatural incidents as the reason, including strange noises, broken glass and furniture moving,” the post says.
“This has obviously been a period of great upheaval for our children. We haven’t personally experienced any supernatural happenings, as they have been reported only while we’ve been out of the house, but we’re happy to pay above the asking rate, and feel it’s important to be as up-front as possible to find the right person.”
This isn’t a joke, they have lived in the house for ten years and consider it home.
Would you take the job?
