Riyadh, KSA

£1,200+ npw

A VIP family based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia is seeking and educated and experienced live-in governess for the care, education and advancement in English language skills for their 5 year old daughter.

Their daughter is a very active and energetic child who loves sports, especially gymnastic and swimming. The idea is to educate her through age appropriate activities inside and outside of the home through fun, educational, active and imaginative play. They would also like someone that reinforces positive behaviour as well as good manners and discipline.

The ideal candidate will be a well presented, active, imaginative, kind, patient and flexible governess seeking their next long-term role. Somebody that has been culturally exposed and thrives off the idea of working in a new climate, unless you have previously worked in the Middle East which would be a plus.

With regards to the duties the governess will be focussing on educating and caring for the child, of course ensuring the play area is clean and hygiene standards are kept to, however other staff will take care of cleaning, cooking and bathing etc.

There will be a lot of travel involved within the role, therefore someone who enjoys travelling with the family and experiencing different cultures would be a great fit.

The working schedule shall be 6 days per week, 12 hours daily. Due to the nature of the family having many commitments and events, a person who is flexible to change their working pattern on occasion if need be.
