Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hi! I am Jemma and I have 3 kids. Their father works almost 300 miles away so he is unable to help with the kids at all.

We live just outside a town called Ballyclare, Northern Ireland in a large Farmhouse. It is quiet, has nice gardens, patio area and a large shed which even has a small pub built in just for us to visit :)

It is 20 mins drive to Belfast, the capital city of Northern Ireland.

There is a bus station in Ballyclare that can go to the city centre.

Ballyclare has a large supermarket and many smaller shops offering many things.

There is a garden centre and cafe 5 mins walk from our house. There is also some nice quiet walks from our house with lots of cows, sheep, horses and chickens nearby.

Job Description

I work irregular and unsociable hours including weekends, nightshifts and 13 hour days. While I'm at work you would help take the kids to school in the morning (leaving at 8am) and collect them in the afternoon (usually 3pm). You would need a driving licence. We would buy a small car for the Au Pair to use and we would cover insurance and fuel for this. This would also allow you to visit places without relying on public transport.

The kids will need to have meals cooked in the evening and sent to bed around 7pm. Annabelle is vegan but can cook her own simple meals if needed. The boys eat anything. Sometimes we like to order takeaway. We have Netflix and TV channels, PlayStation, board games etc to keep them entertained in the evenings.

Sometimes you may be needed to do the food shopping to help out but I will provide money for that of course.

There will be some cleaning and vacuuming needed to maintain the house in good condition. This can be done whenever you have time during the week and the kids are at school.

You will have free time on the days / nights I am not working (usually 2 days a week sometimes more).
