Full-time Native English speaking Governess/Governor required for B1 and G2 located in the South of France, €3500-4000 gross per month, start ASAP.

(CP630) Full-time Native English speaking Governess/Governor required for B1 and G2 located in the South of France, €3500-4000 gross per month, start ASAP.

A recommended Russian family residing in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is looking for an energetic, active, engaging Governess/Governor to assist in the development of their young children.

Both children have a beginners level of English. As a Governess/Governor, you will be mainly responsible for engaging them in activities both outdoors and indoors to promote their understanding and learning of the English language. Additionally, your responsibilities will include meeting the needs of the children – ensuring they are reaching their milestones, looking after their well-being and safety, and accompanying to walks.
As the children are of a young age you might be required to carry out caring duties from time to time.

There is also a nanny in the household, and you will work alongside her to ensure the children are brought up and cared for to the highest standards.

The children now attend a French kindergarten, and the parents would ideally like them to be introduced to the English language and culture. You will be expected to create a cultural atmosphere by reading age-appropriate books, singing songs and teaching manners accepted as high etiquette in English-speaking countries.

The ideal candidate will have at least 3 years of experience working with young children and be confident with young learners. Previous experience of working in private households is desirable. The ideal candidate will be friendly, kind, active, and energetic holding relevant childcare/teaching qualifications. Ability to speak Russian would be a plus.

It might be required to accompany the children to and from the kindergarten, and holding a driving license would be an advantage as a family car can be provided.

The working schedule is 4 days on with Saturday to be a full working day and three working weekdays depending on family needs, Sunday to be a day off. The working hours per week will be approximately 35 hours. The daily schedule might be up to 10 hours per day.

The family may consider a different schedule for a successful candidate.

The salary is €3500-4000 gross per month, negotiable for the right candidate.

This is a live-out position with a separate studio provided in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat if needed, however, the family is ideally looking for a candidate already residing nearby.

Preference is given to candidates who are already in France. Preferable date of start 23rd of December.
