Rota Governess in Sloane Square

£70000.00 - £85000.00 per annum

Job Descriptions

A busy UHNW family is seeking a highly qualified and experienced governess to join her household, working on a rota basis (2 weeks on/off). With three boys aged 7, 4.5, and 3.5, the candidate will play a pivotal role in their educational development, working closely with the current head nanny who holds a Norland qualification. The role entails providing academic support and overseeing the boys' educational needs, including preparation for the 7 exam in January 2025. The successful candidate will have a background in teaching and/or tutoring, preferably within UHNW households.


  • Collaborate with the current nannies, in creating and implementing a comprehensive educational plan tailored to each child's needs and developmental stage.
  • Provide one-on-one tutoring sessions focusing on a range of subjects, including but not limited to English, mathematics, science, and languages.
  • Foster a supportive and enriching learning environment that encourages intellectual curiosity and academic excellence.
  • Coordinate with external tutors and educational resources to supplement the boys' learning experiences.
  • Accompany the family on international travels during school holidays, ensuring continuity in educational activities and support.
  • Assist with administrative tasks related to the boys' education, such as scheduling appointments, managing resources, and tracking progress.
  • Maintain open and clear communication with the family's PA and other household staff members, reporting on the boys' academic progress and any concerns or developments.


  • A background in teaching and/or tutoring, preferably with experience working in UHNW households.
  • Familiarity with the British education system, including preparation for the 7 exam.
  • Exceptional organisational skills and attention to detail, with the ability to multitask and prioritise effectively.
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills, both verbal and written.
  • Flexibility to adapt to changing schedules and travel requirements.
  • Valid passport for international travels (the family spends a lot of time in the USA, and would need the nanny to hold a passport valid for a travel visa).

This is an excellent opportunity for a dedicated and experienced educator to join a prestigious household and make a meaningful impact on the lives of three bright young boys.

  • Schedule: 2 weeks on/off
  • Start Date: ASAP
  • Location: London (Sloane Square) international travels
  • Children: B7, B4.5 and B3.5 years-old
  • Salary: Starting at £70K GPA, depending on experience and qualifications
