Wanted: Nanny to care for two children and ghosts.

A family of four living in the Scottish Borders is seeking a nanny for their two children, aged 5 and 7. Duties include: driving children to and from school, helping with homework, preparing meals, and tucking children in at night in a home located in scenic area. The pay? £50,000 plus 28 holidays. Sounds like a pretty great job, right? There’s only one catch, the home is haunted. Sounds like the plot of horror movie, doesn’t it? But in this case, it’s real.

The family posted the wanted ad on  ABC News is reporting that the family has gone through five nannies in the past year alone due to the supernatural activity in the home. Maybe it’s time to call a priest?

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.

If you are seriously interested in the job and have no problem dealing with things that go bump in the night you can apply here. We wish the family the best of luck.
