Nanny/Housekeepers/PAs Bilingual Nanny Jobs

Governesses are a highly respected and established member of domestic staff, who are trained to the very highest standard to provide your children with an outstanding and personal level of education. They come with years of experience in the care and tuition of pre-school, and school-aged children, and many are fluent in a second language, or even multilingual. Each of our governesses will have a unique method of educating and raising children, and our consultants use their wealth of experience to match candidates with your family’s ethos and needs.
