Couple willing to pay nanny £40,000...provided they dress as Disney Princess to look after their children

HOW MUCH do you love Disney? Do you love it enough to spend your days dressed up as a Disney princess?

What if someone was willing to pay you £40,000 for the trouble and all you had to do was look after a couple of children along the way?

That’s the question being posed after a rather unique job advert from the website childcare.co.uk went viral online.

It comes from a Hertfordshire couple who are on the hunt for a real-life Disney princess to take care of their five-year-old twin daughters.

The job comes with one unique requirement though – that the successful applicant be willing to dress up as a different Disney Princess each month while they look after the kids.

The job posting reads: "Myself and my husband are looking for a part-time nanny to care for our twin girls during the week, but we want to hire someone to look after our children whilst in character as a different Disney princess every month.

"Like most five-year-olds, our girls are obsessed with Disney and we feel this would be the best way to communicate some important values.

"We know this isn't a normal request for nannies, however we think it would be a great way to teach our girls about things like determination, fearlessness and ambition from strong, yet relatable, female role models like Princess Tiana, Princess Anna, Belle and Cinderella."

 

Anyone hoping to land the role will be expected the “commit to a character”, meaning a background in drama wouldn’t go amiss.

They will need to keep the children in line though, with the advert warning that this particular twosome can be “little terrors”.

A part-time position, the role is four-days a week with responsibilities including picking the children up from school, cooking dinner, putting them to bed and creating Disney-themed activities around things like singing and backing.

"Candidates must be looking for a long-term job as we want to keep the successful nanny in the girl's lives for the foreseeable future,” the advert continues.

All that hard work will be handsomely rewarded though with the parents offering a £40,000-a-year salary that includes 25 days holiday, plus bank holidays and an allowance to pay for the costume hire.

Some flexibility will be required though along with first aid training, a clean driving licence and a minimum two years’ experience in a similar role.

"We know this isn't exactly a normal job offer," they said.

"But we think it's a great opportunity for someone to get really creative and add a little magic to our girls' lives! So, if there are any Disney-mad nannies out there, who'd be able to help us out, please get in touch."

Know any budding Mary Poppins who might be interested?
