We are looking for an au pair to come and live in our home. We have 3 children aged 10, 8 and 5 years old. We live in galway city. We need someone who can drive as you will need to drop the kids to and from school.
Our three children go to the same school which starts at 8:30am. Our daughter finishes at ten past one and the boys finish at ten past two. Some days the children have after school activities. On a typical morning the children get up at seven and leave for school at eight. We usually leave for work before seven thirty.
Neasa is typically home from work on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday by 2:45pm and on Monday and Wednesday by 5:30pm.
In July and August the children are off school, though they do attend some activity camps.
The au pair will drive the children to school and back and we will provide a car. The au pair will cook dinner four evenings of the week, but not at the weekend. The au pair will collect the children from school and look after them until Neasa is home.
The hours are 07:30am to 08:30am then 1:00pm to 3:00pm three days of the week and 1:00pm to 5:30pm the other two days. The au pair will need to start at 07:00am on one morning of the week. The au pair must also cover three hours on one evening of the week, which is typically Thursday. Saturday and Sunday and all public holidays are free.
This totals 23.5 hours and is the most we expect. These hours may change occasionally, to deal with any issues that arise, but overall this weekly total of hours is not exceeded. Also, we are flexible and can arrange cover occasionally if an au pair needs time off.
The au pair must keep the kitchen, living room and utility room clean during the week as you would at home. A cleaner comes on Friday to clean the house and bathrooms and wash the floors.
We will provide internet. The au pair gets her own double room. There are many language classes in Galway which run in the morning and in the evening. You would be able to attend either of these times.
