Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear future au pair,

Thanks for taking the time to consider us a your potential host family. We are a small family living in the sub tropical region of Australia, in a suburb of Brisbane. My husband Matt is Australian born and 42 years old. My name is Katharina, I'm 37 and from Austria. I've had Australian citizenship since birth as my mother was from Melbourne. Our daughter Eloise is 5 years old and speaks both English and German fluently. The main language spoken in our house is English but I try to speak German as much as possible with Eloise. We are looking for an au pair who will live with us for any duration of time between 6-12 months. We’d like you to look after Eloise 4 days a week and speak German with her. We also have a friendly mid size dog living with us who is treated like a family member, as well as an aquarium. We would like to offer a job that is 25 hrs / week spread over 4 days, which will suit anyone looking to spend 3 day weekends relaxing or exploring Australia. I hope you will consider us as your host family.

Matt, Katharina & Eloise
