Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We'd be happy to have you join our family in Amsterdam! We are a mixed nationality couple (Romanian and Dutch) living in Amsterdam and we have recently extended our family: our 5yr old daughter now has a little brother of 6mo. The more, the merrier,but also the busier it got :) As both of us parents work full time, we'd be very grateful for an extra set of hands and a caring and happy soul to help out with our kids and household routines. We'd of course make sure that you have a lovely stay in Amsterdam, get immersed into the Dutch culture, and that you truly enjoy the time spent with us.

***We are only open to applicants that do not require visa for the Netherlands; you'd be a perfect match if:
- you are a native Romanian speaker or basic Dutch. If none of the two, then good English is a must, and / or German.
- you're willing to care for a baby (10 mo old in April)
- you already have au-pair or chilcare experience (this is a must!)
- latest starting date in beginning of April 2023

Get in touch!

Job Description

You'd be expected to help out in the morning routine from approx 7:00am and to take at least one of the kids to school / daycare. Then 2 or 3 days a week you'll mostly be free till 2pm, on Monday and Thursday till 5pm (bar the light household tasks you' be expected to do if needed). Then school pick-up, play with our daughter and do various activities with her (playground, take her to dance classes, paint, etc), prepare a light meal for her. Evening routine - set the dinner table at 6pm or occasionally cook (1-2 times/week, if you enjoy doing this), clean-up for the next day. Occasionally bathe kids, help getting them to bed at 7:30. Two days/week (full days, Tuesdays and Fridays) you'd be looking after the baby while we work. Both kids are either 2 or 3 days in full care, so the above is an example of tasks, but everyday might look slightly different- we can be specific as to what the schedule will be each day. Most of the times you'd have one child in your care, not both, especially with the morning and evening routines as we of course want to spend time with our kids and will participate. Weekends you'd be free, with small exceptions which we'd discuss and agree on together in due time. Other tasks you'd occasionally be expected to do: dishwasher load /offload, kids laundry hang and fold, tidy up, clean kitchen after meals. We have a cleaner coming every two weeks so these would be rather light, everyday tasks.

As au-pair in the Netherlands, you'll be working 30hrs/week max and we'll be paying the legal max of 340 Euro pocket money/month. We could also agree to offer additional things for you within a reasonable limit, depending on your needs /wishes (I.e bike you can use, buy food you like, a cinema ticket, a book, phone subcription, etc). We are happy to accommodate free-time activities for you, look for language classes, we are open, flexible and understanding, and we'd hope for the same in return. We would be agreeing on a schedule in advance. Trust and reliability are important for us.

Family Description

We're glad to have 2 happy and healthy children. Our oldest goes to school everyday till 2pm, whilst some days has after school activities. Our baby goes to daycare 2 days/week. My husband and I work full time, 3 (alternate) days from home. We sometimes sport in the evenings and/or weekends, and we mostly go out all together.


We have a spacious home (160sqm) with garden, in the beautiful island of Ijburg (part of Amsterdam). Its in the city, yet so close to nature (city beaches at 15 mins walk, canals, green areas). You will have your own bedroom with a terrace at the 3rd floor, as well as your own bathroom with shower (only to be shared when we have guests staying over- which is not often). The rest is shared with the family (garden, kitchen, livingroom. Wifi, Netflix of course included.
