Governess/PA required for a lovely family in Chelsea. 


Job description:


Governess/PA required for a lovely family in Chelsea.  


The main role will be the education and care of 2 children, (7yrs and 9yrs), Monday-Friday. Usual Governess hours will be 3pm-8pm, but will vary depending on the children's activities, so the candidate will need to be flexible. The children are active and do lots of extra-curricular activities, including language learning and music.


The Governess would be required to pick the children up from school (walking distance from the house), and the main focus would be to help the children with homework and plan and arrange educational activities after school. The family are keen for the children to attend a top independent school, so knowledge and experience of tutoring of the 11+/13+ entrance exams or the British Curriculum is required. There is a cleaner employed, so no laundry duties will be required.  


To create a full-time position and offer more working hours the family are offering a PA role for their business. This would involve administration work: responding to emails, filling information into SAGE, making appointments etc. This would work on around 20 hours per week, to be delivered in the morning until the afternoon, when the children finish school/activities. The PA role is very flexible, and the hours can be designed to suit the candidate’s needs.


The PA role is optional, and the offer of just the part-time Governess position is available as well.




Candidates must have a flexible attitude, be well educated, have tutoring experience for 11+/13+ knowledge of the British Curriculum, and have excellent references. The family is looking for someone with excellent spoken and written English. For the PA role, the candidate must have good knowledge of Microsoft/Mac, be well organised, and have a good telephone manner.


Starting: February 2019


Salary: £20 per/hour, depending on skills and qualifications


Hours: 40-50 hours per week (for combined Governess/PA role)
