Saudi Arabia | Native French-Speaking Governess | October Start

Job ref: SA/4children

A family based in Saudi Arabia are looking to hire a native French-speaking governess to join them in October.

The family have four girls, aged 10 months, 3,6 and 8. The two older girls are going to school from October.

The family currently employs two other nannies, a housekeeper and a chef. The other nannies are responsible for cleaning, bathing, cooking and general nursery duties.

The governess will be responsible for managing other staff members as well as planning the girl’s schedules, keeping them entertained, and making sure their French is improving.

The family travel often and have a house in Paris. They are also planning to go skiing in January and need the governess to travel with the family.

The mom is a stay-at-home mother and the father is busy working outside the house.

The governess will be sole charge of the children when the family travel for a few days and needs to be comfortable proxy-parenting.

As the mother is present in the house, it is a mixture of sole charge and shared care. 

The governess needs to be highly organised.

When working, the family will provide a driver for the governess to travel with the girls.

The family would prefer a candidate to have a driving license for her personal use to travel to and from work to her apartment.

The family employ a tutor that comes every morning.

The governess needs to be happy to work 8am - 8pm, 6 days per week.

The family are providing the candidate with a separate, self-contained apartment.

The salary is flexible for the right candidate.

 

Working hours: 8am to 8pm – 6 days per week.

Accommodation: Self-contained apartment.

Salary: £1,000+ net per week depending on experience.
