A Scottish family are looking for a nanny to take care of their twin 5-year-old children over Christmas in their castle.

Nothing wrong with that, except they're willing to pay £9,000 for the lucky nanny who will be on duty "24/7 with a room adjoining the children's".

A job advert was placed on, and also demands that the successful applicant be "fully vaccinated" against Covid-19.

The position is located at a castle somewhere in East Lothian (near Edinburgh), as the family will be spending an "extended Christmas" there, from December 22 to January 5.

This makes it worth around £600 per day – nearly three times more than an MP earns per day (minus the second job, of course).

The advert also states that the nanny would be responsible for dressing and washing the children, as well as reading to them and taking them through a "bedtime routine".

They will also be in charge of "generally ensuring children are entertained," with possible activities including "outdoor walks, games, crafts and day trips with the family’s driver".

It does state that there would be "no cooking and cleaning duties" for the nanny, however.

The successful applicant would need at least five years of experience and "will have to sign a non-disclosure agreement".

Wages normally paid to a nanny came under fire earlier this year when 24-year-old Rhiannon Blue gave up her tiny £14,000 per year nanny role to become a model on the adult website OnlyFans.

She said: "It was a random job, but I needed money. The family were absolutely lovely but I always knew it wasn't for me.

"After two years, I knew I had to leave that nannying job. I wanted to make more money and it just wasn't me, I needed more."

She now earns up to £22,000 a month and was, in July, on track to make in £220,000 a single year.
