Description:
Female governess/companion to a 12 year old girl (the youngest of 4 children), offering support with her education - no need to tutor/teach as she attends full time school (American curriculum), extra curricular activities and mentorship on independence and future interests. The girl is very artistic and would benefit from a governess with keen interest/background in arts & music, as well as a gym buddy and chaperone to outings with her friends. The family are particularly interested in a dynamic, active and outgoing candidate with interest in sport and healthy lifestyle and nutrition, to encourage these interest in the child.
The family have 4 children (the eldest two are 17 and adult) and have had the same nanny for 10 years until last year - she has become part of the family over the years and is very close with the children. Whilst this is a VIP family, the household is very informal with no strict rules and protocols and the family are keen to find candidates who will easily fit in and can sit down for a dinner with them/join on holidays etc. and work well within a team. This is a fully staffed household. ASAP start for a long term contract. Candidates must be fully vaccinated (this is an entry requirement for Kuwait).
