The parents say the only catch is the nanny must dress-up as a different Disney princess character each month. The cost of the costume hire is covered.

According to the job ad on childcare.co.uk, the role also involves teaching their twin girls the values of “determination, compassion, fearlessness, and ambition” from strong and relatable female role models such as Cinderella, Belle, Princess Tiana, and Princess Anna.
“Like most 5-year-olds, our girls are obsessed with Disney and we feel this would be the best way to communicate some important values,” the employers said.
Applicants must be able to commit to the chosen character, create a fun atmosphere, and not be afraid to discipline the twins when they are naughty or act up.
“They can be little terrors at times,” the parents said. “The right person will have a real creative flare as well as a passion for all things Disney, and will be able to share that love of those characters with our girls.”
Other duties include cooking dinner, driving the girls home from school four days a week, putting them to bed, and arranging Disney-related activities like arts and crafts, baking, and singing. It is unclear whether the nanny has to wear the costume while driving to-and-from the school.

Requirements include having a clean driving license, first aid training, and at least two years’ experience as a nanny or similar role.
“We think a trial shift would work best, so we can see how you interact with our girls and allow us to formally meet before hiring,” the parents said.
“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 employers added. “So, if there are any Disney-mad nannies out there who’d be able to help us out, please get in touch.”
