Moscow family looking for a full-time native French governor Ref – FG1016

1st March 2019 eed_adminJobs

A family living in Novaya Riga in the outskirts of Moscow are looking for a full-time native (preferred) French governor for their 2 kids – a boy aged 10 and a girl aged 11.

The ideal candidate would be a positive, active individual who has experience teaching French to children and is qualified in teaching French – preferably with a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in education. The perfect governor would also be fresh, sporty, fun, and ready to engage the children in a range of activities.

The 2 kids take swimming classes, martial arts, and love to spend time outside. The boy is into football and the girl takes dance lessons. The right governor would therefore be somebody who can accompany the children to these events and help them with sports in their free time.

A large part of this position will involve teaching the kids via sit-down French lessons. The governor will therefore need to be able to prepare a curriculum of sorts, to improve the children’s French at a steady rate. The family would therefore prefer a French governor who has previously worked in a school or university, with experience of lesson planning and creating a full curriculum. Teaching qualifications are a must for this role.

The children are native speakers of Russian and speak good English too. The parents in the family also speak English – so it would be beneficial for the governor to have knowledge of English for ease of communication. Knowledge of Russian language is not required for this position.

The schedule for this job will be 5/2, with the days off and hours to be arranged with the family but not exceeding 45 hours per week. The family are ready to help the governor find accommodation close to the family home, by either Strogino or Krilatskoe metro stations in Moscow.

The governor may also be asked to travel with the family on occasion – they spend their summers in France or Italy and sometimes travel to other destinations during school holidays, including Singapore and Asia. The family are ready to discuss a salary from 5000 euros/ month for the right candidate. Ideally they would like to sign a contract for a minimum of one year.


Negotiable salary beginning at 5000eur/ month
Work week of up to 45 hours
Worldwide travel
Live-out position with accommodation stipend
Minimum one-year contract
