This job listing sounds like it’s straight out of a horror movie!
Mashable has reported that a family in the Scottish Borders is hiring a live-in nanny with a starting salary of $64,000, 28 vacation days, and your own room with a bathroom and private kitchen.
That all sounds amazing, so what’s the catch?
According to the family, their house is haunted. The listing they posted on Childcare.co.uk states:
“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.”
While this may all sound like a hoax, the CEO for the listing site revealed that the company had investigated the posting and discovered it was genuine. He said:
“When we saw the advert, we were stunned. Some of the guys at HQ were skeptical, but after talking to the family and their previous employees we realized it was a genuine position… The family has assured us that no harm has come to anyone living in the house, however the nanny will have to have a strong disposition.”
The family also revealed that they never personally experienced any of these supernatural events, but the whole situation is still pretty weird.
If you think you can handle the job, you can apply yourself right here.
