A VIP family based in Ibiza, Spain, is looking for a couple to help take care of and home-tutor their 3 children.
This position essentially comprises two parts – the family would ask the couple to accompany them on a worldwide trip they are planning to take on their yacht in February 2020 and then continue to work with the family in their home in Spain on a long term basis. The initial contract is therefore based on 6-months (flexible) with a view to extending to a year and longer-term.
The family has 3 children: a girl aged 4 and boys aged 8 and 9.
The family’s idea is to find a couple comprising a nanny or manny to take care of the kids' health, clothing and hygiene, and a tutor figure to home-school the three children. The candidates should be ready to share a room during the initial trip, as their yacht has limited berths.
The tutor candidate for this role should be comfortable creating a personalised curriculum including English, Maths and Science for the older kids according to the international baccalaureate or similar primary years programme. The ideal tutor therefore will be well-educated with a PGCE, BA Education or equivalent, as well as being kind and fun. The tutor should be able to make lessons fun, be a friend for the kids and make sure that learning English, in particular, is interesting for them. The nanny/ manny should be comfortable with spending more time with the little girl and taking care of the children's hygiene, clothing, supervising eating habits, general health and proxy parenting.
The candidates should be prepared to work with the children on behaviour and general etiquette as well as focusing on their education. Sporting talent and the ability to swim will be a large plus.
Other tasks will include preparing the children’s daily schedule including planning free-time activities and researching local trips for children during travel periods.
The children in the family speak fluent German and intermediate level English already and are beginners in French – for this reason, knowledge of French language would be a plus. Knowledge of German would be a bonus but is non-essential as the parents in the family speak good English.
The family already have a fully staffed house in Spain, so cooking will not be required, and a separate apartment nearby will be available for the candidates. The family are also ready to consider the possibility of renting a car for work use.
Salary on offer for this role is 1000 euros per candidate per week for a 5-day week. Days off during travel can be taken when the family have longer stays in various ‘pit-stops’ (the Canary Islands, Bahamas etc.) or can be worked as overtime for an additional 200 euros/ day. When in Spain the working day will be based on a 5-day week (weekend days will be working days).
