Miami Job Opportunity: $120,000-a-Year Nanny for Fisher Island Family

Ever dreamed of becoming a modern-day Mary Poppins earning a six-figure income and working in one of the wealthiest ZIP codes in the country?

Well, here’s your chance.

Nine days ago, a seemingly affluent but anonymous local family posted a “full-time nanny and etiquette teacher” job on Indeed. Compensation: “$120,000 per year plus advantages.”

The ideal candidate, according to the ad, is “tall and kind” and “loves children.” The ideal candidate has at least three years of nannying or childcare experience, two years of classroom teaching experience, and a valid driver’s license. Hours are expected to run from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday.

“The children will be in school most of the day and the role will be mainly in the afternoons,” the listing reads. “Please apply if you think you are a good candidate!”

Because the advertisement is a confidential advertisement and the employer is anonymous, new times could not reach them for comment. It is not known how many children need care, nor their ages.

According to the “hiring outlook” at the bottom of the job posting, the family is “hiring urgently.” Do whatever you want with it.

Although little is known about the employer, the ad specifies a family from Miami Beach, but the job posting is listed in Miami-Dade ZIP Code 33109, which specifically translates to Fisher Island (population 561), a 0.26 square mile piece that would be the southern tip of Miami Beach had not been severed from the barrier island in 1905 when Government Cut was dredged. It is one of the richest points of land in the United States, and it is only accessible by boat or ferry. It is a popular hiding place for the rich and famous. (Oprah Winfrey, Julia Roberts and Mel Brooks have all owned property on Fisher Island at one time or another.)

Last year, a similar job posting for a nanny in San Francisco went viral after listing a salary of $100,000 to $120,000 plus health insurance, paid vacation and sick days. The list – published by Louer, a private recruitment agency that serves family offices, yachts and planes – noted that it needed someone with “extreme flexibility”, as the family typically travels “around ten weeks per week”. year” and owns various residences across the US

To put all of this into perspective: the average salary for a babysitter or nanny is $18.40 an hour, which if babysitting full time would amount to $38,272 per year. Miami-Dade County public school teacher salaries start at $47,500 and peak at $74,182.
