Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello, I am a single father with two teenage boys aged 14 and 18.

I work long hours and need someone to be there for the boys in the morning and the afternoon.

We hope that you would fit into our family and feel welcome in our house but also you will have your own space and your own free time to explore Northern Ireland.

We live in the city of Armagh and are within walking distance to city centre, and to the bus, and many local attractions, we will be travelling to the Republic of Ireland some weekends if you wish to join us - note that you will need to make sure that, if you require a working visa to work in Northern Ireland.

Job Description

I need to have someone to be there to make sure the boys get out of bed and go to school in the morning, to do some house work while the children are at school, and to be there in the afternoon when they come home. We have a big three-story house, so you will need to be happy cleaning the house on a daily basis, doing laundry for me and my children, and cooking once per day.

We will need you to cook evening meals during the week - one of my son's is vegetarian so it will be necessary to cook a separate meal for him, as me and my youngest son are not vegetarian.

Aside from housework and cooking an evening meal, you can spend the day doing what you like - if you wanted to pursue other employment, or to attend a course, your weekends will be also be free.
Two schools that run language classes are within walking distance.
I have different businesses if you are good at paperwork, or we can get you a part-time job in a local restaurant if you would like t to earn extra money and practise your English.

I need someone from the start of January the length of time you will stay is very flexible! Anything from 3 months to 1 year.

My children are teenagers and mostly do not need looking after; so really it suits someone whose main goal is learning English, or someone on their travels wanting to experience our country and our culture.

It is important you speak as much as possible - we have had au pairs almost every year since my children were born, and they have all been very happy with how their English improved here, and were happy with their stay with us.

I need someone from the start of January until May, and longer if everyone is happy!
