Whatever happened to Mary Poppins?
A family in England is looking to hire a nanny that will dress up as a different Disney Princess each month. The job posting, found on Childcare.co.uk, is going viral for its unique necessities.
“Our girls are obsessed with Disney and we feel this would be the best way to communicate some important values,” the job description reads.
“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, compassion, fearlessness and ambition from strong yet relatable female role models like Princess Tiana, Princess Anna, Belle and Cinderella.”
This odd job request comes at a time when many are starting to realize the danger in the “lessons” many Disney Princess teach, like lack of consent, needing a man and not being independent, The Post reported late last year.
In addition to playing dress up, the nanny will take care of 5-year-old twin girls. Other qualifications include being able to create a “fun atmosphere” while also enforcing discipline, the Brookmans Park, Hertfordshire parents request. Don’t break out the magic wand just yet: you’ll also need a clean driving record, first aid training and at least two years experience.
The family is hoping their Cinderella will pick their daughters up from school, cook dinner, sing, bake and put the girls to bed — all while clad in a ballgown, of course.
This part-time princess gig pays £40,000, or just over $52,500, and includes 25 days off, national holidays and sick days. The family will cover the cost of the costumes — a dream come true.
“We know this isn’t exactly a normal job offer, but we think it’s a great opportunity for someone to get really creative and add a little magic to our girl’s lives,” the princess-needing parent writes.
“So, if there are any Disney-mad nannies out there who’d be able to help us out, please get in touch.”
