We are the McCarthy Family and we live just outside the town of Greystones in Co Wicklow. We are very close to the sea and the mountains and 45 minutes by train to Dublin City. We have two boys aged 13 and aged 9 and we are looking for a kind, friendly, helpful and trustworthy live in Au pair to look after them.
We require an Au pair from the beginning of January You would be a live in Aupair, bed&board have your own room, bathroom, and WIFI.
Your duties would include bringing our youngest boy to the school at 8.30am (and wait with him until he goes into class at 8.50am) . The school is 7 minutes walk from our house. He would need to be collected generally at 2.30pm but he does activities afterschool so it may be later than that on some days. Our older boy has started secondary school so makes his own way to and from school.
You will be free to go to college in the mornings when the children are at school and there are several colleges in Bray and in Greystones to choose from
Both children will need dinner when they get in from school and to get their homework done, so it will be your responsibility to make sure that is completed. Dinner is generally made beforehand, but you will need to give it to the children.
Your duties will also include some light house work, keeping the kitchen clean and occasional vacuuming in the house. You will be expected to keep your own Bedroom and Bathroom clean.
You may be asked to babysit occasionally but you will get enough notice of this and it is not that often. We get home from work around 6.15pm. Your weekends are your own but as I say you may be asked to occasionally babysit. If you have any questions please feel free to ask us. Thanks The McCarthy Family
