LIVE-IN NANNY/GOVERNESS FOR UHNW FAMILY – DUBAI

We have an amazing opportunity for an experienced, flexible, and professional live-in Nanny/Governess for an international UHNW family based in Dubai. The family are looking to appoint an energetic, caring, and creative Nanny/Governess to assist them with the care of their 6-year-old son, helping him reach his educational and development milestones, and ensuring he receives the best daily care.

Our clients are business professionals, but also very hands-on parents who like to spend quality time with their son, so the role will be a mix of sole-charge and shared care. They are looking for a kind, warm, caring, discreet, and trustworthy Nanny/Governess who ideally has experience in education, along with early childhood teacher experience. The boy attends a British school and is very intelligent and active, with his current hobbies including chess and swimming. There will be plenty of downtime during the day when the boy is at school, so flexibility is expected when he is at home to ensure that of all his needs are met.

Duties will include getting the boy up and ready for school, accompanying him on school runs (the family have a driver) and arranging and coordinating all after-school activities, including setting up play dates, going to parks and on cultural excursions etc. You will have a good overview and understanding of the school’s curriculum and assist the boy with his homework, liaising with the school and teachers where necessary. The ideal candidate will be energetic, engaging and fun, able to maintain a good balance between homework, sports, and playtime.

A live-in role in a fully staffed household, you will work 6 days per week with a day off on Sunday, but flexibility is required. You will have your own spacious en-suite bedroom within the house, and the use of a shared staff kitchen. The family travel two or three times per year for a few weeks and would require the Nanny/Governess to travel with them. Being pet-friendly is an essential requirement for this role, as the family have a poodle.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
• General care, including bathing, dressing, feeding etc. whilst also promoting independence
• School drop offs and pick ups
• Arranging and accompanying him to activities, play dates and outings
• Assisting him with his homework, liaising with the school and teachers where necessary
• Ensuring his school clothes, school bag, sports kit etc. are ready to go every day
• Travelling internationally with the family

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Prior private Nanny/Governess experience caring for young children
• Early childhood education qualifications and/or teaching experience
• Kind, warm, engaging, and caring nature
• Patient, easy-going and happy to be flexible
• Valid DBS check and first aid trained
• Discreet, reliable, and enthusiastic
• Energetic, organised, and responsible
• Excellent English
• Travel ready
• Brilliant checkable references
