Rota Governor

Job Description

An international family based in Dubai is looking for a qualified and experienced manny/ governor to provide care and educational support for their son, aged 5.5

This is a rota position, working 3 weeks on/ 3 weeks off in rotation with another governor employed by the family. The family also has a 2-year old girl, who has her own nannies. The children speak English, French and Russian.

The charge is doing well academically and the family would like the governor to arrange educationally stimulating activities and excursions when outside of school, with a particular focus on science and ‘hands-on’ learning. The charge attends an international school during the day so there will be downtime during the week.

The family live in a fully-staffed house. No cooking or cleaning is required but the governor should help to keep play areas tidy and organised together with the little boy. A driver can be provided for work-related purposes. The parents are very active in their son’s day-to-day life and are around to support the children and the candidate when required.

The candidate:

The ideal candidate will be a native-level speaker of English. The candidate should have at least 5 years’ experience working in a similar role. Early childhood education qualifications would also be a plus, as would experience tutoring or teaching science or mathematics to develop the boy’s interests. The family is really on the lookout for a positive, active candidate with a lot of good energy. The charge is very active and sporty, so a candidate with similar interests and a warm, bubbly disposition would be welcomed.

The family wants the candidate to encourage a good routine for their son. This should include a morning routine (getting ready for school, breakfast, school drop off), and an evening routine (school pick up, supervising homework, afternoon activities, sports, playing, shower, dinner, story time, bed time).

The family wishes to employ an energetic, caring and responsible person who is First Aid trained, a confident swimmer, hands-on, reliable and capable of working independently. The family is ideally looking for a long-term candidate.

Excellent references and a background check are essential.

The offer:

Long-term position
3 weeks on/ off rota with another rota governor
Live-in role for time working
Salary of 1250+ AED per working day, flights home can be negotiated for the right candidate
Travel with the family to Europe etc. if required
