Looking for a well-paying job with plenty of vacation days, your own comfortable room with en-suite bathroom and private kitchen in a lovely country manor home? Have you considered the exciting world of nannying?
According to an ad posted on a popular childcare job site, a “friendly family of four with 2 children ages 5 and 7 living in a small village in the Scottish Borders” are looking for a stable nanny to look after their young ones. They apparently live in a “lovely, spacious, historic property” that offers “spectacular views” of the surrounding countryside.
Just one small detail that might affect your decision:
The house is haunted.
Says the couple:
“We have lived in our home for nearly 10 years. We were told it was ‘haunted’ when we bought it, but kept our minds open and decided to buy the house regardless,” the ad reads. “5 nannies have left the role in the last year, each citing supernatural incidents as the reason, including strange noises, broken glass and furniture moving. 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.”
