Amber's Description

Live-in Au-pair/Nanny Available for late 2017 through to January 2018

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 traditional 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).

Ideally seeking 3-5 days per week, with weekends off. I am otherwise flexible with my time, as I am willing to pitch in with extra help/babysitting/child minding on evenings and weekends if/when required. If you have school age children, ideally I would be seeking to do morning and evening hours and have most day time hours free.

Although flexible with my time, I would like to find potential employers who are respectful of my time off as well. I am taking driving lessons and aim to have my license by the start of the new year (2018), but would be ideal if you live within easy access/walking distance to local town center, shops, school, etc.
Willing to negotiate wage. My preferred wage is between $250-$300 per week (neg.), 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 due to time constraints for all parties involved, because of work schedules, etc. and also out of respect for couple's privacy), but I will still assist in children's dinner/evening routines if needed.

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, yet still personable and social; 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, kitchen, etc.), 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 two professional, small families in Brisbane. One family for two years with an 11 month baby girl (now 3) and a 6 month old boy (now 14 months). The other with a 9 month old (now 13 months). I would like a change of scenery and 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 and flying kites, 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 up to three children. I am currently interested in writing children's storybooks.

I am also willing to perform basic/general cleaning and tidying up (household maintenance/upkeep) on a daily basis, however would suit household who perhaps have professional cleaners, with minimal to no cooking duties required, however this can be negotiated on depending on needs, as I am a good cook. OK with pet(s), especially dogs.
