An international family residing in Virginia Water is seeking a professional career nanny and early years educator for their 3-year-old daughter who is a beginner in English. The family is highly recommended by the agency, and they are looking for a top-level, long-term nanny/governess who will be responsible for introducing English to their daughter.
The successful candidate will work 5 days a week, for up to 40 hours per week, on a live-out basis. Some flexibility may be required regarding working days. No cooking or cleaning is required as the family home is fully staffed. Pets are at home.
The family offers a negotiable salary of £70,000 – £80,000 per annum for the right candidate, and UK statutory benefits for holidays and sick pay are included.
The ideal candidate will have:
At least 3 years of experience working in a governess/nanny position.
A British accent and excellent references and working history.
Experience working in schools would be seen as a plus.
PGCE or early years education would be particularly relevant for this role.
Teaching experience with younger children who have no prior knowledge of English would be highly beneficial.
A good role model, proxy parenting, long-term candidate, the successful candidate should be a team player who is comfortable working within the current household setup and also helping to develop the child’s language and educational abilities long-term. A nanny/governess who continues her own professional and career development is needed.

Good references from previous positions are essential, and the candidate should be experienced working with a private household. A kind, flexible and calm personality is essential for the role.
