British Governess/Tutor required in Dalian, China

£800-1000 net per week

A lovely family residing in Dalian, a modern port city in China, is seeking a British Governess/Tutor for their one year old daughter and to help the mother to learn and improve her English. The family has another nanny to support most of the care aspects of the child, therefore this role will be mostly with an educational focus for the girl and mother. They hope to move to the U.K when their daughter is around 10 years old, so they are passionate about her learning English from an early age with a British governess.

The ideal candidate will be an active and energetic lady who has at least 3 years of experience as a governess and/or tutor, and who wishes to stay with their next family on a long-term basis. A university degree, childcare qualification or TEFL would be preferred but not essential.

The main goal is teaching the little girl through interactive play, reading, singing songs and conversation once she starts talking. At the same time the governess will be helping the mother to learn and practice her English. The family has a fully staffed household, so a team player is essential. If the candidate speaks a little Mandarin that would be wonderful but not essential. The family mostly travels throughout Asia and are open to the governess travelling alongside them or taking her own holiday during those times.

This is a live-in role in the family’s home. A separate bedroom and bathroom will be provided with adequate privacy. The working days will be 5 days per week with negotiable hours (up to 50 hours per week).

The salary on offer is £800-1,000 per week depending on experience and qualifications. A visa will be provided for the successful candidate.

This role is to start ASAP.
