This Family Will Pay You $165,000 To Be Their Nanny

What would you say if we offered you a job that included free round-the-world flights, offices in London, Barbados, Cape Town and Atlanta, Michelin-starred meals and a pay packet to the tune of $165,000?

Hopefully you're asking what the catch is because, unfortunately, there's a few of them - although none of them involve a ghost, thankfully.

The role, posted on childcare.co.uk, requires a nanny with a lot of qualifications including a degree in child psychology, self-defence training and a minimum of 15 years experience looking after kids.

It's also full ON; you're looking at 13-hour days, six days a week.

"The role is demanding," the very frank ad reads. "Our children are home-schooled and require constant attention and supervision, even when they are with their teachers.

"We'd prefer our nanny to eat with the children at every meal, which will be cooked for them by a Michelin-star chef... we expect the nanny to run errands and take the children to various daily appointments."

There's also very strict rules about binge drinking and drug taking - not allowed, obviously - and successful candidates can look forward to a "non-negotiable two-week paid provisional period" to "test the water".

If you're still interested, though, you'll have access to a Porsche, Range Rover and Maserati to play with, international flights three times a week and, of course, that hectic salary.

Oh, and it's 31°C in Barbados at the moment. Just saying.
