Looking for a new job? A family in the United Kingdom is looking for a nanny to take care of their two children. For around $64,000 and 28 vacation days, the couple wants someone who can cook, help with homework...oh, and deal with ghosts.

According to WFAAthe family wants a nanny for two kids (ages five and seven) but shares that their home may be haunted. "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," the job post says. "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."

Before you freak out, the family says that they haven't seen any ghosts. "We haven't personally experienced any supernatural happenings, as they have been reported only while we've been out of the house." That said, they're willing to pay extra for a brave nanny. "But we're happy to pay above the asking rate."

The unique job posting hasn't scared anyone away. In fact, a ton of people are interested. The family says that it's received over 2,000 messages about the job.
