This childminder role pays 50k but comes with one major catch

Would you be able to put up with this?

A couple in Scotland have listed a job on a childcare site to find a nanny for their children. They live on the Scottish border with their two children, aged 5 and 7.

The nanny role comes with a very impressive salary of £50k, along with separate living quarters and free meals, and 28 days annual leave.

The duties for the role include preparing breakfast, getting the children ready for school, dropping off and picking up from school, helping with homework and getting them ready for bed.

However, if you think this is the dream job then you might want to hold off on applying because it comes with one major catch.

The house is supposedly haunted. The family has lost five nannies in the last year who quit because they couldn’t put up with the supernatural activity in the house.

The parents said that they knew the house was haunted when they bought it but haven’t witnessed anything strange themselves. The previous nannies said they witnessed supernatural incidents including strange noises, broken glass and furniture moving.

The parents have said that, for this reason, they are being upfront about the issues in the house and also giving a salary above the asking rate to find the right person.
