English speaking governess or governor required, Amsterdam, Netherlands, £1000 net PER WEEK

A Russian family residing in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, is seeking a qualified and experienced Governess or Governor for the care and education, with a focus on English language for their son aged 3 years and 5 months.

The family would like a candidate who is seeking a long-term role and who has previous experience working with this age group and who is confident in planning and implementing a routine and structured indoor and outdoor age-appropriate activities which will allow the child to enhance his English skills. He attends an English-speaking international kindergarten currently and they would like for him to continue to learn and build confidence in the English language. A candidate with a second language in Spanish or Italian is favourable, however, it is by no means necessary. Someone who is confident in finding the right approach with each individual child is preferred and who has a genuine love for caring for and educating children is a must.

The working schedule is 6 days per week, whilst travelling 10 hours daily and whilst based in the Netherlands the schedule will be 8 hours daily with occasional baby sitting at night if the family are out later from time to time.

The little boy loves to play, he is very energetic and enjoys a variety of games and activities. The candidate will assist in continuing to develop his language and overall manners and discipline as per the parents’ requirements and help him to socialise well with other children. He is a polite and motivated boy with a strong character. The family is seeking a long-term candidate who enjoys teaching English and watching the child develop. He has had a Russian nanny previously, however the family would now prefer a language and educational focus. Some light healthy meals will be required. The boy has an allergy to nuts, therefore someone trained with an Epi Pen is preferred.

Whilst in Amsterdam a studio apartment is provided to the candidate, however, when travelling, accommodation is offered within the family’s home, which usually has a separate entrance and adequate privacy along with separate bedroom and bathroom. A driver is preferred, however it is not necessary.

This role is to start immediately and the salary on offer is starting from £1000 net per week, depending on experience and qualifications. This role is to start as soon as possible. Interviews will be conducted via video call.
