  • Smily Cammeray Family looking for live-in Nanny (au-pair) [Posted by: Michael K in Sydney, New South Wales]   Posted on 07-Dec-2017
    Pay: Negotiable ( must be at least the minimum legal award rate )
    In summary, we are looking for someone to do up to 40 hours a week (including light cleaning and two nights babysitting which could be on a weekday or weekend night). You should be comfortable driving and you're welcome to use our family car. We are offering a double bedroom and you would be sharing a bathroom with the boys. With our eldest attending school and our youngest at the childcare we are looking for someone who can get the boys ready in the morning from 7:30am and then take them to school and childcare for the younger one. Our youngest child's childminder starts at 8am and is a 15min walk from the house, while our eldest child starts school at 8:45am and his school is a 10min walk from the house. After you drop the boys you would need to tidy up after breakfast (light housework only), put on the children’s dirty clothes for washing or do some ironing. The last two wouldn't be every day so your morning of duties would be finished by 9/9:30am and you would be free (excluding Mondays when you would have a full day with the younger one). We would also need you to pick the boys up - for the older one (7) in school, this would typically be around 3:15pm (depending on after school activities) and for the younger one (4) it would be around 5pm. You would need to prepare and provide their dinner, and help with homework if required. We will typically be home in time for the bedtime routine of bath, brushing teeth and story time. Our youngest child goes to bed at 7pm, while our eldest child at 8pm. You are free after 7pm unless it is one of our agreed babysitting nights. The weekends are yours, unless one of the evenings is an agreed babysitting night. It’s really important to us that you enjoy your time with us and we think that flexibility on both sides and good communication is key to that. We are very happy to answer any questions you may have or have a Skype chat to make sure that we can meet your expectations and vice versa. About us One parent works full time in investment banking and the other works in asset management also in Sydney’s CBD. One parent grew up in Canada and the UK, while the other was raised in Australia. We met 12 years ago in London when I started my PhD in Finance and my wife completed her Masters in Accounting and Finance at the London School of Economics. We are quite international people, and having made London our home for the last 14 years we relocated to Australia in August 17. Apart from a love for travel we enjoy the cinema, theatre and music, although opportunities to go out are a bit more limited with two little ones. My wife is an enthusiastic cook and we both enjoy eating good food and sharing it with friends and family. Our older boy is 7 years old. He is a sensitive, very communicative and active little person who makes friends easily. He is very much into imaginative play and reading and now days it is hard to separate him from his Harry Potter books or anything to do with Star Wars. He attends the local public school which is a 10min walk (up a steep hill!) from our house and loves going each day so he can see his teachers and friends! Our younger boy will be four in February 2018. He is very smiley and easy-going, is very quick on his feet and is slowly mastering how to express himself and pronouncing words. He giggles and dances anytime he hears music and can't seem to eat enough yogurt! He will be going to a childcare centre four days a week so you would be spending one full day with him. Expectations We are a loving and fun family living in a beautiful, open and spacious house on the northern shores of Sydney (Cammeray) with two little boys. We are a 10 min bus ride away from the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera house. Our eldest turned 7 in July 17 and our youngest will be 4 in Feb 18. We are looking for a caring, responsible, calm and creative au pair who has experience working with young children. Ultimately, we are looking for someone we can trust with our boys and who will enjoy looking after them as they grow. In return we would love to welcome you into our family and support you in making the most of the experience. We are easy going and respect your privacy and time off!
