Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hi there!

Thanks for reading my profile! We are a family of three: myself and my twin girls. I am planning to go back to work in September 2021 - I do marketing for a agricultural company.

We live in a city of about 90,000 just outside of Calgary, Alberta which is a short drive to the Rocky Mountains. There you will find many skiing, hiking and camping options. Public transportation is not great here, especially compared to Europe, so the right candidate would need a driver's license and know how or be willing to learn how to drive in winter conditions.

In terms of work hours per week: I can only guess, but suspect variable. If I need to go into my workplace, I do have a significant commute. However, it sounds like working from home is going to be a strong possibility. Therefore, work hours could be variable depending on my work’s requirements. But to be upfront- it would be likely 40-45 hours per week. We would determine compensation accordingly.

We would love to have someone be part of our family - if interested, we would welcome you to join us after hours for social gatherings, outings and vacations (all when doable after COVID!)

Job Description

The job will entail taking care of my girls, light housework and some meal prep. Because I work for a national company this means to join meetings, I often start work at 7 AM, so the days will start early. However, I do try to therefore end my days earlier too.

In Canada, there is usually one statuatory holiday every month. I'd also attempt to take a day off every month to help balance out hours for the potential au pair.
