An exciting new opportunity for an educationally focused nanny to join our long-standing clients, with a fully staffed household, and care for their 9-year-old daughter in Kuwait.
The little girl attends an American school and therefore the family would like a nanny to have experience with either the British or American school system & curriculum, ideally with a teaching degree or similar.
She attends school from 6.30am to 2.30pm each day, you’ll therefore need to get her up around 5am, arrange breakfast and accompany her to school. Whilst she is in school you will need to use part of this time to plan lessons and activities, but can use the rest of the time for your own things.
In the afternoon you’ll be responsible for accompanying her to activities, arranging play dates, helping her with homework, and getting her ready for bed. Mum and Dad like to spend time with her at the end of the day, and your day will therefore finish around 7.30/8pm.
You will not be responsible for any nursery duties, but will need to liaise with other staff to ensure a smooth schedule and that she is eating healthy, nutritious meals.
The family travel during all school holidays and would need you to accompany them, they tend to stay in hotels, so you and your charge will share a room. You will generally be on 24/7 call for the duration, but the family does offer plenty of downtime to allow you a break.
Whilst in Kuwait you will be provided with your own bedroom, bathroom, and small kitchenette within the family home, this is on its own floor away from the family section of the house.
The ideal candidate is to hold a teaching degree, be organized, and have strong teamwork skills and communication, with the ability to teach independence as well as focusing on good manners and etiquette.
