Getting a nannying job with great pay and a lovely family can seem nearly impossible, as many nannying jobs offer difficult children, bad pay, and subpar living conditions.

If you find one that fits your needs, you should immediately take it.

Well, that’s exactly what five nannies recently did — before subsequently quitting.

But why would they quit if the position had exactly what they wanted? Well, it also had something else: ghosts.

That’s right, the last five nannies this family had hired all quit because of supernatural incidents. Nannies have a lot of responsibilities — like this nanny who saved children’s lives — but handling ghosts typically isn’t among those tasks.

The job itself may have been great, but the nannies were not on board with the supernatural. Now, the family is looking for another nanny — and this time, they’re making it clear that people who apply should be OK with ghosts.

Want to know more about the position? Read the job listing below to find out exactly what this job entails — in addition to supernatural occurrences.

This nanny job listing is a little different than most. It requires not only taking care of children, but also potentially taking care of ghosts.

The listing reads:

We are looking for an exceptional live-in nanny to join our friendly family of four in the Scottish Borders.


We have 2 children ages 5 and 7, and live in a lovely, spacious, historic property with spectacular views.

Duties would include 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.

My husband and I are both very busy professionals who are often required to work away, and there are occasions, up to 4 nights per week (weekdays only) when we will both be away and you will be at the property alone in sole charge.

You will be provided with your own comfortable room with en-suite bathroom and private kitchen.

We are offering a salary of £50,000 gross per annum and 28 days holiday (plus bank holidays) for the right person.

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.

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.

We are keen to find the perfect long-term nanny, so if you’d like to be considered for this rewarding and exciting position, please do get in touch with us.

Between the four weeks of paid vacation and the generous salary (which is equivalent to roughly $63,000), the generous perks are pretty tempting.

Would you take this job — ghosts and all?
