Name *
A sentence summing up who you are and what you are looking for. Example 1: Fully qualified primary teacher seeking new adventure for 2019. Example 2: Experienced aupair who is passionate about starting a career in education seeks a governess role for 2019 start.
Write a paragraph or two detailing why you think you would make a good governess. Why do you want to work as a governess? What sort or role are you looking for (i.e teaching only or a mixture of school and station work). Don't forget to mention your inter personal skills such as flexibility, sense of humour, attitude to work and solving problems, these skills are hugely important on a station.
Include any qualifications, level of education, Working with Children checks, first aid certs etc. Mention driving ability and whether or not you have access to your own vehicle and are comfortable driving it on dirt roads.
Try to be exact about when you are available and how long you are available for. If you are on a working holiday visa you can only work for one employer for six months. You should make that clear. Lots of families will be looking for someone to start as a governess in the new school year but some will need a governess at short notice.
Include and visa requirements such as a need for 88 day sign off. Include any other information that you feel may be relevant.
