Driver, Gardener & Handyman for hire

Rene Mashiala Mbangu has worked for us for nearly three years. Prior to joining us, he drove for a Diplomatic family in the Republic of Congo for several years.

Driver available immediately- looking for full-time position

 

Hello All. I am recommending Mouctar, a young, dynamic, capable driver from Conakry fluent in French and Wolof. He keeps everything spotless and is perfect at communication. He lives in Parcelles Assainis so not too far from Almadies Ngor area.

He is learning his way around all the places in Dakar very well and he asks around well if ever he doesn’t know a place yet.

He really takes feedback seriously and adapts accordingly (I figured I’d mention this as it’s definitely a great quality for any staff). Great with kids too.

I tried him out for a while as I wanted a driver only for the election period, and kept him around just to see how he does before I recommend him. To call him straight away: 784883786 Please note that he is looking for a FULL TIME JOB aka livelihood.

 

My number is 763574483. Please whatsapp me for questions if needed.

Best regards,

Desiree

Domestic Help: Driver – Khassim

Khassim has been my driver since early 2017.  (I no longer need him now after moving house and changing schools for my children, everything is at walking distance!) Khassim has been flexible in terms of scheduling and very reliable. He is respectful and discrete. My children both made good friends with him thanks to his warm attitude. Khassim, who speaks French, Wolof and Mandingue, has over time become of an administrative assistant to me, too. He helped me obtain all the paperwork I needed to get settled in Senegal, plus helped with car issues (customs, insurance, controle technique, repairs). He also made himself available as needed for weekend trips when I had visitors. I highly recommend Khassim as a driver, he is a true gem.
