After Dominic Cummings asking for CVs from "assorted weirdos", the second strangest job ad of the new year goes to a parent requesting a nanny and a cook for their law student daughter.

The parent states in the job ad that their 18-year-old daughter, who is studying law at the University of Leeds, requires a nanny to cook, clean and do laundry as the student’s “study schedule is very intense". 

The parent specifies that her daughter needs "three healthy meals a day" and a fridge "always full of healthy snacks, juice" - which would seem to rule out future ambitions for the student to become a City corporate lawyer with the ability to survive on vending machine black coffee and egg sandwiches.

The mollycoddled student already has "a driver who can pick up the groceries and drive her around", and who will learn to keep their smile fixed in place as they pick her up from Mint Club at 3 in the morning with a 70/30 chance of cleaning out sick at dawn.

Here's the job ad in full, posted on the recruitment site Indeed:

The parent also posted another job ad requesting a "private chef" for their little darling:

The law student is not the first to have an overindulgent parent, but the perks also mean she is set to miss out on the genuine experience of sacrificing food and cleanliness to reach an essay deadline, before concluding that there are other things to do than study law anyway.

I mean it's funny, but the details in this will make it very easy to identify/humilitate this 18 year old if someone at law school in the relevant city happens to see this...

Wonder if the nanny and chef will be kept on while she articles?  it says she's Canadian so perhaps overseas travel is in their future.

The ad says the spoilt 18 y.o. is Canadian, but is sounds like the parents originate in Hong Kong or s.w. in SE Asia. 

She could work p/t in MacDonalds. That's what many students, or young graduates do. 

The kid has no connection with how most people live. Will this teenager (barely an adult) treat the staff like dirt?

3-ducks, the latter, definitely. The mother probably forced her to read law (she wanted to study music, art, or literature). Her brother was made to read medicine and give up Languages or International Relations).

A sad case, frankly.
