We are Don and mercy gombos from
Dallas, TX.
My husband and i reently were transfered to Africa
and we intend to scout for an au pair (nanny)to come
and babysit our 2 lovely angels.we recently tried out an
africa nanny but discovered that though we love the african
ways, we are not accustomed to it.
We have 2 energetic but delightful children
we do not require
much babysitting in the evening which means that you
are free to enjoy these as you wish. On your days off
you can enjoy the Nigerian Sun on one of the many
beautiful beaches just a short drive away. We also
have a summer house by the lake which we would like
you to spend some time with us in.don is a
Production Engineer with Shell BP, Nigeria and works
pretty hard, but enjoys going for walks in the
glorious Obudu hills. I am a teacher at the local high
school here in Nigeria too where I teach biology to a
range of children. I had to accompany my Husband when
he was posted from the US to Nigeria. In my spare time
I enjoy painting. We would like an au pair who will
fit in with our lifestyle and enjoy their time with
us. You have a tastefully furnshed live-in
If you agree to take the position you shall be paid
$3500 (Three Thousand Five Hundred Dollars Monthly)
and shall be given a weekly pocket money of $640.
Your residence shall be comfortably furnished within
the Company housing estate. We are comfortable here as
Shell pays us well however we cannot work effectively
and take care of our kids hence our solicitation to
you to come and Nanny for us.
I, mercy would be home each time I go
offshore. I stay for about a month or two and return
home to spend time with my family. You shall
undertake the following duties if you accept to work
with us:
Care for & stimulate the child both mentally &
physically, to ensure their intellectual, physical &
social development.
Find out about activities in the local area. Ensure
that the child/children get regular fresh air &
Plan & undertake activities on a one to one basis &
with children. Develop speech, reading, numbers,
letters, colours, social & practical skills.
We had a Nanny but like i said earlier, we arent used to
their customs and traditions and are not sure we truly
want our kids to grow with that orientation. Should you
accept to take up the position with us, you can start as
soon as your Flight Ticket, Travel Documents and other
Travel Intineries are ready. We could recommend a Travel
Agency for you, however all this depends on if you
accept to Nanny for us. It is my husband that is mostly out of
the country. i am usually home each day. Yes we
do have a maid who would assist you in seeing to the
dietry needs of our kids.
Send us your referees so that we can get in touch with
them. Should the outcome be positive, we would then
invite you to come and Nanny for us.
I do hope you consider a position with us and you
would not regret it.
Have a swell weekend as you work towards building your
career with us.
