A Moscow-based Russian family is looking for a highly qualified governess to work with two children – a 6-year old girl and a 3-year old boy. The children speak intermediate level English but have some nuances regarding speech. The ideal candidate will have a high level of English and be a qualified teacher, with a degree in child psychology or speech therapy as possible alternatives. The candidate should be well experienced working in a family or ‘home environment’ and would ideally have his or her own driving license, although this is not essential.
Personal qualities are also very important – a candidate who is fresh and energetic but can also be empathetic and warm to connect with the kids would be perfect for this role.
The family travels often; if the candidate has a vaccination recognised in Europe that would be extremely beneficial. The family are offering accommodation on-site but live-out would be possible for the right candidate according to final discussions with the family.
Applications ASAP for an in-depth interview process with the agency and then the family.
