Au Pair.Childminder needed January 2019, Dublin

Job Details

Description: Experienced, mature, energetic, fun loving, patient and responsible (safety conscious) au pair needed to join our family and look after our three children (8 year old girl and 4.5yr old twins), on a live in basis. Our 8 year old attends a local school each day until 2.30pm. The twins will be cared for by the au pair at home while both parents are at work, however, they also attend Montessori from 1300-1615 five afternoons per week. We are seeking a kind, caring person who genuinely loves children and enjoys playing with them, entertaining them and being with them. We are seeking someone who can take care of our children full time Monday to Friday. As such, this job will not suit anyone who attends English classes during the day or needs to attend classes for visa purposes. We also have a cocker spaniel dog, so we are seeking someone who doesn't mind when she is around!! We are from a non-smoking home. A good level of English and considerable childcare experience, preferably experience as an au pair in Ireland, someone who has experience in looking after children is essential and references are required. Valid driving licence is also preferred but not essential.  In return,  we can offer a modernised home and pleasant bedroom with TV, WiFi and use of your own bathroom as well as excellent terms and conditions. We live in Portmarnock and are situated beside the sea, only 11 miles from Dublin. We are well serviced by public transport with buses and DART into the city centre, which takes c. 40mins. The tourist town of Malahide is reachable by foot and is a mere 2.5miles away.  We are seeking a happy, bubbly person for a minimum of 12 months who is active & energetic. We love travelling, culture, languages, music, sports & reading. We are a busy household so it might suit someone already with an established network/friends or other au pairs in Dublin. Key duties include: - Helping our daughter to get up in the morning, dress herself, prepare breakfast for the kids and lunch. - Feed, change, dress and mind the twins from morning to evening; taking them for walks and doing activities with them. - Collect our 8 year old daughter from school; preparing lunch and completing homework. Complete activities with 3 children in the afternoon (park, sports, outdoor pursuits, reading/library) and where the 8 year old has activities outside the home, it would be useful to drop her off (all walking distance!) and collect her on occasion, although grandparents generally help out here. - Prepare dinner for the children. – Whilst we have a cleaner 7 hours per week, some light housework throughout the day would be helpful (kids laundry,kids beds, ironing, playroom & kitchen tidy up etc). We have a great support network in the area and there are always spare hands to support.  If you are interested, please email me with your CV and a photo . Thank you.  

We've had au pairs before, you can talk to them!
