A driver is preferred and will have access to an automatic car to drive whilst on duty. The ideal candidate will be kind, caring, active, knowledgeable, educated nanny/governess and understand the different milestones for different age group as well as show initiative. A firm but fair approach is preferred with regards to discipline and someone that gains the children’s trust and respect. At least three years experience working with school aged children is preferred.

The children already speak English, Serbian and some French. The children are active and enjoy football, swimming, tennis and drama as well as reading and board games.
