Our client is seeking to hire a nice professional live-in couple to work for them at their formal home in Ghent in Belgium. You will spend time with the family during winter in the French Alps and also spend time in the Summer on the Côte d'Azur. Due to the accommodation available and the travel requirement, this position would not suit a Couple with animals or children of their own.
The family would like to employ a Couple who have experience of working with and being around children. The family have a young son and would like a couple who know how to help with boundary setting, positive discipline and general day to day education. They would like a couple whose interactions with the child will be supportive, kind and warm, yet with appropriate assertive delivery – no means no.
The family are very keen to hire a couple who speak very good English who can help the child with his English language skill improvement. French language skills are helpful but not essential.
Other staff who are employed at the property include a daily laundress/ironer, Chef a Nanny and gardeners.
Your duties combined will include:
Driving (ideally both would drive but at least one of you will need to)
General garden maintenance skills are desirable but not essential
Table Service skills
Nanny / Childcare experience is helpful but not essential
Helping when guests visit
Light cooking skills are helpful but you will not be required to cater dinner parties
Your accommodation is a separate 1 bedroom house on the property so you have your own nice space and privacy. A staff pool car is available that you may use. There are animals on the property including an indoor and outdoor dog.
This is a very nice opportunity for a professional capable couple with excellent references.
