I am a single mother of 3 children aged 12(girl), 10 (boy) and 6 (girl). We live in Oysterhaven, by the sea, 5 minutes from Kinsale. My kids go to school in Cork city which means that we leave Monday to Friday at 7.30am. They finish at 3pm. The drive to school is about 45minutes each way so I am on the road quite alot.
I am hoping to return to the workplace and in order to do so I need support for the children each day after school. Homework, unpacking school bags and uniforms, snacks and gelp with the evening meal. Nightime routine helping make sure kids showered, teeth brushed etc and uniform, school kit ie Hockey etc and school bags ready for the early morning departure. We also have a cat, 2 dogs and a pet Rooster!! The animals are all friendly and our au pair would need to be comfortable and caring with animals as they are very much a part of our family. Some dog walking required but this is minimal as they are older and tend to sleep alot now!!
Ideally you will have a full clean driver's licence and be competent preparing basic meals and snacks and taking control when I am not here.
After we leave in the morning there be an hour in the house clearing breakfast and making beds (or even getting the kids to make their own!!) and making sure when we return the kitchen is ready to start evening mealtime.
I have a cleaning lady 2-3 hours a week but there is general light housework that we all need to do each day (rubbish bins, laundry etc) and the kids are getting much better at helping out too.
If I start work I will not be home until 6 pm so your hours will be in the afternoon Monday to Friday 2-7 and occasionally (maybe once a month) on a Saturday.
I have a large home with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and it is spacious and nice and great location if you love watersports and counrty walks.
