We are looking for a full-time, live-in au pair (living in our house) to start work in February 2019 for 6-12 months. Would suit someone with a working holiday visa.
We have three boys, aged 4, 2 and a newborn.
As a family we enjoy the outdoors, including nature playgrounds, the beach and picnics.
We would prefer (but not essential) an au pair who is a native Chinese speaker because it is important to us that the children grow up to be bilingual in English and Chinese.
We live in Tuart Hill, which is well connected to the high frequency bus and train services. It takes 20 minutes to the city centre by bus. Our house is in walking distance to a shopping centre, including cafes, restaurants, post office, pharmacy, gym and the library. 15 minutes by car to the beach.
Role of the au pair:
Mum will always be in the house, so you will be a "Mother's help" to support running the household. You will not be looking after the new born baby.
Having fun with the children.
Creating a safe environment for the children
Activities and outings with the children eg. art/craft, reading, cooking, playground, music.
Getting children ready for school.
Simple meal preparation for the children.
Simple household chores and light housework eg. Children's laundry, washing up, tidying up toys, tidying up children's bedrooms.
Running errands eg. post office.
We have a cleaner who comes weekly, so only a light bit of cleaning is needed.
Working hours are 08:00 to 17:00 (1 hour lunch break) Monday to Friday. No work on public holidays. 4 weeks annual leave.
