If you are based in Sheffield but you are interested in leaving for a position as a VIP nanny, governor or governess, we recommend checking the high salary overseas positions posted on JIC. To find the highest paid jobs we suggest searching by location, as most of the best-paid roles are located in London, Monaco, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Moscow and similar large cities.

If you do not want to permanently depart from Sheffield but you are still keen to find a VIP childcare role, you may like to consider a rota position. Rota nanny roles (and sometimes governor or governess positions too) are generally consist of a schedule where work time (generally half of the schedule) is spent working in the country in which your employer is based and the other part of the schedule is time ‘off’ with the option to travel home.
