We are looking for a loving Live-In Au Pair with good English and a full drivers licence to help us with our daughters Bea and Eden from January 2017 (as our current Au Pair is leaving to take a job in Australia). We would like an Au Pair who wants to feel like part of our family. As the role is 3.5 days per week plus babysitting Au Pair will have lots of time to herself to study, see friends or just to explore the London.
Bea will be just over 1.5 years old. Bea is a happy and friendly toddler. She likes music, dancing, being read to and lots of cuddles. Eden will be 4 in January and is great fun, talkative and loves her little sister. The girls love arts & crafts, baking, running around outside and reading.
We live in a four bedroom house in Old Coulsdon, Greater London. Our Au Pair will have her own large room with kingsize bed and will share use of a bathroom with our daughters. We are close to a train station with great transport links to Central London (25 minutes by train). Old Coulsdon is also a short bus ride from Croydon where there are a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants.
We have a loveable English Bulldog called Roxy. It is important to us that our Au Pair is an animal lover who will enjoy spending time with our furry family member.
Our Au Pair's general working hours will be 3 days per 6.30 am - 7.00 pm days a week and one morning on the weekend. They will also need to assist with drop off and collections from Nursery. The role also includes up to two night of babysitting per week. Given the nature of our jobs, we will need our Au Pair to be flexible. This will give you lots of time to attend classes, meet friends etc. Our Au Pair will also help with light domestic chores in particular laundry, house cleaning and helping out with preparing dinner. We would also like our Au Pair to help with walking Roxy around the lovely green spaces in Old Couldson.
Our previous Au-Pairs have come on holiday with us to France, Spain, Ireland and Wales. Any overseas trips will be discussed and agreed in advance and you may be paid extra during holidays and overseas trips.
As the position is live in, all accommodation, petrol, food, utilities etc will be included. Pocket Money details available on request. You will also have use of the family car.
We are happy for potential candidates to meet/speak with our current and previous Au-Pairs to get a better idea of the role and life with our family.
We look forward to hearing from you !
