Governess required for Pilbara WA Cattle Station POSITION FILLED


We are a family-owned cattle station with three young boys located in the Pilbara region of WA.

The boys are currently studying Y4, Y2 and K through Carnarvon School of the Air. We are looking to replace our fabulous Governess as she is off travelling in term 2.

The Position

We are looking for an energetic and fun loving person who genuinely loves kids and the outback. It would be an advantage to have teaching or governess experience but if not, we are willing to train the right person.

We encourage our governess to be involved with station work, and they are more than welcome to join in if they wish. There are days where the kids will come out to join in with station activities (usually during mustering season) so having a governess who is flexible and enthusiastic about station life and what we do is important.

Start date Term 2, April 2019 (with the possibility of arriving earlier for a handover).

Competitive wages and accommodation package provided


Hours of work are Monday to Friday, 7:30 - 3, with weekends and school holidays free.

We don’t expect any domestic or childminding work outside of the school room.
