Rich Russian families offer €6,500-a-month to Irish nannies

Wealthy Russian couples are looking for Irish nannies and teachers and are willing to pay them up to €6,500 a month to look after their children.

According to London recruitment agency Bonne International, Russia is the place to be for Irish nannies, and their staff are coming to Dublin next week to recruit on behalf of Russian families.

The agency is looking to recruit qualified childcare workers and teachers to look after Russian children and teach them English. It will be hosting interviews in Dublin on Wednesday, Oct 24.

Bonne International said that Russian governess and nanny jobs are often with extremely wealthy families and can carry salaries ranging from €4,000 to €6,500 a month, while teachers could earn €1,900 to €4,000 per month.

The positions, which are likely to interest large swathes of unemployed people, also include accommodation.

Bonne International said candidates must have a degree, and preferably a childcare or teaching qualification, with some experience of working with children. Positions are open to suitably qualified men and women.

Anna Gremitskikh of Bonne International said the types of families likely to hire Irish nannies and English teachers were from the very upper reaches of Russian society.

“These are families with drivers, housekeepers, chefs, gardeners, and sometimes a yacht and private jet,” she said.
