Silver Swan is seeking a kind, energetic and friendly Nanny, with SEN training and experience, to join a UHNW Household in Dubai, on a permanent basis.

This role is for immediate start.

The Nanny will be looking after an introverted 9 year old girl, quite mature for her age, within a formal household setting.
The child experiences a range of extreme emotions and shows some signs of OCD, and is in the process of undergoing a professional SEN assessment. The Family is seeking an experienced Nanny, in possession of SEN/psychology training, in order to help the child in navigating the situation and regulating her emotions.

This is a formal fully-staffed UHNW residence: there are other siblings, each with their own Nanny. However, you might be required to look after a different sibling, from time to time.

Duties will include assisting with homework, organising extracurricular activities, provide a nurturing and stimulating environment, engaging with the child in a nurturing way, helping her feel secure and listened to.

This role involves extensive travel, including to Europe. Therefore the ideal candidate will be adaptable and willing to travel with the Family.
In order to be considered for this role, you must hold a EU passport.
