Live-in Au-pair/Nanny Available for Mid March 2017
I have been an Aged Carer to a 63 year-old Dementia sufferer. I have also managed a boarding house with elderly residents and have been a Nanny/Au-pair to toddlers and babies. In consideration of an Au-pair/Nanny role, I am mainly seeking a more traditional type of Nanny position to assist a family and not necessarily to become an extended member of the family. Would not be available to attend holidays/vacations/family or social gatherings (mainly due to the fact that I consider them private affairs for the family, however flexible, depending on need).
Ideally seeking 3-5 days per week, with evenings and weekends off (preferably at least one weekday and weekends off), but I am otherwise flexible with my time, as I am willing to pitch in with extra help/babysitting when needed. Although flexible with my time, I would like to find potential employers who are respectful of my time off as well. Prefer position where driving is not required. Willing to negotiate wage. My preferred wage is between $250-$350 per week, as I tend to purchase some of my own food items and dine separately (this is mainly due to the fact that it's not always realistic to dine together due to time constraints for all parties involved, because of work schedules, etc. and also out of respect for couple's privacy), but will still assist in children's dinner/evening routines if needed. I plan to obtain my driver's license in the near future, so therefore would prefer position where driving is not essential for tasks, but a car is available to use (if you live a bit further out) or you live within easy access/walking distance to local town center.
I am efficient, attentive, a quick and willing learner, easy to work/live with, have a variety of interests and am also a non-smoker. Discreet, modest and a bit of of an introverted personality (not a very active social lifestyle, i.e. drinking/going out every night; I do like to attend certain events (such as concert), but will give advanced notice of this to arrange), with high standards in cleanliness and hygiene. Ideal working conditions would be separate/private living quarters/accommodation (such as full private bedroom and bathroom or granny flat w/ WIFI, TV), harmonious conditions, and a wage per week. Easygoing and reasonable, seeking same in potential employers. Ideally, I am mainly seeking fairly organized, relaxed and communicative household to assist.
I have been a Nanny to a professional, small family in Brisbane with an 11+ month baby girl, a newborn and 3 cats for 1 year, however I am seeking to either stay in Brisbane or move to the Gold Coast area. I have also been a Nanny for over a year and a half where I assisted a small, professional family in Manly, NSW with two girls aged 18 month- 3yr old toddler and a 0-6 month old
Within both roles, I took my charges to the local parks, to playgroups, story time at the Library, and made simple arts and crafts at home like home-made playdough/paint, as well as playing with bubbles, coloring, flying kites, balloons, etc. I moved on from that position to travel and live in the Northern Rivers area. I like to think I have personality and energy, however if you are seeking someone who is responsible, reliable, independent and self-sufficient over personality, then I would say I would be your best candidate. Would best suit a professional working couple with one or two children from 6 mo. to 2 yrs. of age., however I am experienced with all ages of children (particularly babies/toddlers) and slightly larger households as well. I am currently interested in writing children's storybooks.
I am also willing to perform basic/general cleaning and tidying up on a daily basis, however would suit household who perhaps have professional cleaners, with minimal to no cooking duties required (children's meals OK), however this can be negotiated on depending on needs, as I am a good cook. OK with pet(s).
I am currently living in Brisbane and am seeking a new position anywhere from here to the Gold Coast South to the Tweed Heads Region and to the Byron Bay areas. I am also open to other areas along the Coast, such as the Sunshine Coast. Available for long term assignment of at least 6 months-1 year+. Resume/References available. It would be great if you could put me in touch with any of your previous Au pair (s)/Nannies as well. Please email through link provided. Thank you.
