WE ARE SEEKING A DEDICATED, EXPERIENCED AND THOUGHTFUL ASSISTANT AND CARER FOR OUR UHNW CLIENT BASED IN MONTE CARLO, MONACO
We are looking for an experienced and flexible carer to assist our client with daily life at his family home and when travelling. The home is an apartment in Monte Carlo and there are other staff already employed including a cleaner and nanny. The principal is married with children, so you must be considerate and respectful of the family home environment.
The primary focus of your role and duties will be ensuring that the principal is looked after and has everything he needs whilst at home and when travelling. The role will include some lifting as the principal is a wheelchair user and requires assistance to transfer between locations. Occasionally you may be required to assist with minimal housekeeping and cleaning tasks along with intermittent childcare, however this will not be core to the role.
As well as assisting in the home, you will travel with the family on vacation (usually three to four times a year for one to two weeks at a time). You will be instrumental in ensuring the principal is comfortable and able to complete his chosen activities.
This is a live-out position and the successful candidate will ideally be based in or around Monte Carlo within travelling distance of the family home. Strong candidates based elsewhere in the world and willing to relocate for the role will be considered, as will support for relocation and living costs.
Working hours for the position – two-week rota (please note when travelling the role will be 24/7):
• Week one: 3 days - Wednesday, Thursday and Friday - from 4pm to 9am
• Week two: 4 days - Monday and Tuesday from 4.00pm to 9.00am and Saturday 9.00am until Monday at 9.00am

Excellent communication skills

Experience and knowledge of caring for people with Multiple Sclerosis would be very helpful, although full training on the principal’s specific needs will be given
