Could you work in a haunted house? Not a theme park or Halloween attraction, but an actual, bonafide haunted house? A new job ad on Childcare.co.uk offers live-in nannies the chance to test their belief in the supernatural by applying for a position in a historic home in the Scottish Borders.

The ad was posted by parents of two children, ages 5 and 7, who are often busy with work and need help around the house and picking up and dropping off their kids at school. The ad starts off normally saying they need someone who can take charge as the head of the household when they both have to be away on business trips.

The homeowners, who have lived in their old home for 10 years, haven’t seen any ghosts, but they write, “We were told it was ‘haunted’ when we bought it, but kept our minds open and decided to buy the house regardless. Five 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.”

Since the job ad has spread across the internet, the family updated their post to reflect the overwhelming response. They’ve received applications/inquiries from over 2,000 potential nannies! “It has been a difficult time for us recently and the number of applicants and messages offering support and help are hugely appreciated. Thanks again for all the interest,” they write.

Hopefully out of the large batch of applicants, someone will be able to brave the potential paranormal activities.
