If you love kids, and know how to handle yourself in a scrape, this may be the job for you.

A wealthy family with homes around the world is looking for an experienced nanny in London. Perks include international travel, meals from a Michelin star chef and pay of £100,000 ($128,680) a year.

"We are looking for a highly qualified nanny who has a degree in child psychology, no children of their own and a minimum of 15 years of nannying experience," the mother of the family wrote in an ad on Childcare.co.uk.

The ideal candidate should be trained in self-defense, but the parents will pay for the successful candidate to receive training if they aren't martial arts experts already.

That training is non-negotiable.

The parents, who have homes in London, Barbados, Cape Town and Atlanta, have four children between 2 and 15. They want a live-in nanny who may be required to travel internationally up to three times a week.

However, the job requirements are tough. The successful nanny will need to work 6 days a week from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. They'll also have to participate in lessons and classwork with the children, who are home-schooled.

The prospective supernanny will also be expected to run errands and drop the children off at appointments, but can use the family's fleet of cars, which include a Porsche, Range Rover and Maserati.

The successful candidate will need to be careful with how they spend time off work.

"We do not mind what the nanny does with their free time, however binge drinking or drug taking will not be tolerated and will result in instant dismissal," the mother states.

The identity of the family and the mother who created the job listing are unknown, but the mother confirmed with CNBC that it is a real role.

"We have received over 300 applications so far although the vast majority of them do not tick all the boxes," she told CNBC via private message.

"A handful of the candidates are worthy of making the short list!"

The successful candidate will have to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

The job listing first appeared around August 9, according to the website. Childcare.co.uk is a U.K. platform connecting parents with childcare service providers such as babysitters, nannies and private tutors, and has more than 1.5 million users.

The website told CNBC that the parent's profile and job posting appear to be the real thing.

"As far as we can see, that profile does appear to be genuine, although a little different compared with most of our other parent advertisers," the company told CNBC via email.

The listing has been viewed by more than 874 childcare providers in the past week, according to the website.
