- Position Filled -
27th October 2021 eed_adminJobs

An international family seeks a trained, degree-educated and psychologically-focused full-time nanny/ governess to join their household and work with their son, aged 1 year 10 months.

This position will start ASAP in Cyprus, and the family will relocate back to their London home in December.
The candidate should speak English on a native level and will preferably be degree-educated in Early Childhood Education or similar. Any additional certificates in education, linguistics, literature etc would be a massive plus.
The candidate will spend time with the little boy during the day, concentrating primarily on his early years education. The candidate should ideally have some understanding of the British education system. Due to the family’s international nature (speaking Russian as their first language), they are keen to introduce English-language influence, and the candidate’s primary focus will be on introducing language skills through structured play, activities, lessons and mealtime conversation.
The nanny/ governess should provide emotional and physical support for the boy. The role is to ensure the boy is prepared in the morning – including washing and preparation for daily activities. The daytime will be spent structuring his activity schedule. This will include conversational skills, spelling, phonetics, introducing maths and science, and other early years educational games.

The candidate should ideally cook meals and snacks for the boy (healthy and nutritionally balanced) and should be experienced and flexible enough to assist as needed with other routine duties. Encouraging good table manners and etiquette to provide time for wider conversation will be key to enriching the boy’s English vocabulary, conversational and social skills.
The candidate will be asked to accompany the family for periods of time by mutual agreement when travelling during their holiday periods.
The candidate would ideally have some experience in London to suggest activities, social events, classes etc. after the family relocation.
This role is to start ASAP and the family is ready to start interviewing immediately.

Monday – Friday, with 2 days off.
Additional hours and days work might be negotiated as additional leave or payment.

University degree/similar education (Early Childhood education or comparable)
