Governess job description brief:- Experienced Montessori French native or fluent in French governess who is bilingual in English and French wanted to care for an 18-month-old girl and to teach French to her 5-year-old brother on some days during the week. The boy has his own governess (who has been with the family for 3 years). The French speaking governess will have the responsibility to organize learning through play for the two children and any future children the mother has. The governess will work in a positive child centered way with happy disposition while being mindful of the family’s need for privacy and family time. It is essential that the nanny enjoy being active with the children as sport and outdoor play are done on a daily basis. There is no personal care or household duties required within this role. A flexible team player is essential. During school holidays the governess will travel with the family for extended periods. It is preferred that the governess does not take the summer holiday off as the family often travels to different countries at that time and do need support with the children. Any holidays that would like to be taken by the nanny should be pre-planned at least 1 month ahead of time. Candidates need to have extensive experience teaching French and a high level of English to interact with other staff in the family’s home. Excellent references, an up to date first aid and a DBS check are mandatory. An Early Years or primary school qualification is essential as well as being Montessori certified. Working hours are 5 days a week, weekdays 9am to 6pm or 10am to 7PM. It’s a 8 to 10 hour work day, but some rare days it is understandable that there may be days that the governess is needed for longer. Time off will be compensated for extra time worked. The family will provide accommodation (but utilities will be paid for by the candidate) a car will be allocated for on duty and for off duty use. The salary is 1000£ net per week paid in local currency of AED (dirhams). 30 days paid leave per annum.
