A family based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, well-recommended to Great British Nannies, is seeking a kind, flexible and experienced Governess for the care and education of their 6 year old girl. The girl is an active, positive and creative child. The candidate must be fluent in English and Arabic and holding an EU passport due to travel requirements.


The idea is that the governess can teach the girl English through fun and educational age appropriate activities inside and outside of the home. They would like her to enjoy time outdoors engaging in sports and learning about the environment.

It is a fully staffed household, therefore no housekeeping duties are required, besides keeping the children’s playroom clean and tidy whilst adhering to good standards of hygiene. The family travels often, mostly during the summer months and the governess would be required to accompany them during their travels.

The working schedule is 6 days per week 12 hours daily, a degree of flexibility is expected from the governess especially when the family is travelling overseas.
