Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear Au pair,

We are a fun, relaxed kiwi family with two boys ages 9 and 10. Our kids are confident, active boys who love to go on adventures! Our children and ourselves, enjoy spending time at the beach and taking hikes, kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, surfing, and the boys do skiing and rock climbing classes.

My husband and I are both teachers and business owners. We own our own nature school for children in the forest. This is on our property near to the house.

We live in a big house on a large beachfront property and have lots of animals: chickens, ducks, piglets, cats and a dog. We are surrounded by forest and birdlife with a beautiful sandy beach at the bottom of our driveway.

If you are looking to enjoy the beauty of New Zealand with a family that can show you and help you with this- in exchange for help and support around the home, then please get in touch!

You will not be disappointed with our family and the beautiful place we live in!

Job Description

We are looking for a friendly person to join our family. Someone who is thoughtful, caring and can use their initiative. We also need someone who can be firm with the children when necessary but kind and empathetic. You will need to help them with their homework.

We would like 35-40 hours work per week with Friday, Saturday and Sunday off.

Your duties would include light cleaning duties such as; folding washing, helping with dishes, cooking, baking (if you like to do that), tidying children’s bedrooms, helping the children with some of their home activities like art/crafts, playing Lego, table games, taking them to the beach and park, grocery shopping, taking them to after school clubs, homework/tutoring, fun outings to museum etc.

We are flexible but Generally, we would like you to be available 4 days per week approx 7-5pm Friday, Saturday, Sunday is your free time. (We can negotiate alternative hours and days if you want to travel or go sightseeing. Hours can easily be made up at other times.)

The advantage of being our au pair is that although we have a busy job and home, we are very relaxed, down to earth people.

We are blessed to live in paradise so are really happy to be able to share this with an au pair! We are surrounded by trees and the ocean! What more could you want? We are excited to learn about another culture and have someone join our family that can be our friends for a lifetime.

Because we run our school, we have lots of connections to help you meet and socialise with other young people your age. We will always be here to help and can give you tips on where to travel. We have a car that you can use if we are not using it on the weekend. We are a really fun family ready to welcome you here to New Zealand!
