Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear au pair,
in December I will become a single mother, and am looking for someone to join me in Egypt in April 2023, for at least 4 months, or up to two years. I am looking for someone who is mature, reliable, kind and patient with my baby - willing to take care of her while I work (full time), although half of the week I can work from home with flexible hours. I value open communication, honesty and I keep a fairly clean and tidy household (I have a household help coming regularly). I speak German, English and French fluently, plus some Spanish and I am learning Arabic - it would be good if we have one language in common, whichever of the first three that is. You would probably need either English or Arabic to get around in Cairo, though.

My baby girl will be around 4 months old in April 2023 - I am in my forties and have lived and worked abroad for more than ten years. I live and work in Cairo, where I have a nice, big apartment located in Maadi, a part of town that is quite accessible by foot (with coffee shops, supermarkets, gyms nearby) and very popular with expats. You will have your own room & bathroom. Cairo is very busy but also a very exciting city for sure. I'd be happy to find individual arrangements and support any ambitions you may have as long as you do a good job in childcare - be that language courses here or other educational things, to the extent possible and practical.
Looking forward to hearing from interested candidates. Best wishes, A.

Job Description

I am looking primarily for an Au pair - little or no household work required, since I already have a household help. I will probably go back to working full time, so the Au pair would be in charge of caring for my baby 5 days a week, 6-7 hours a day. Some limited support on weekends would also be great (pay to be negotiated for extra work). Once my baby is a few months old and we have settled in Cairo, I hope to be able to add some time at a nursery. Also, I have flexible working hours and can work from home, and bring in extra support for a few hours occasionally, which should enable the Au pair to still pursue some other interests besides childcare and free up a bit of time. My office will help to obtain a work visa in Egypt of course, and I will take care of the cost of that.

I am looking for someone who is mature, kind, and has at least significant experience in child care, ideally even some sort of education/training in this field. A first aid certificate is a must, but happy to help arrange this in advance, and I may also ask my Au pair to attend training in advance (paid by me, of course) if I feel that might be useful. I am hoping for the Au pair to become a true family member, but this means sharing basic values in life - such as honesty, kindness, and being trustworthy and reliable.

I would be happy to support the Au pair in taking language classes or any other educational objectives, or volunteering activities, both financially and trying to free up time for such things - as well as of course time for their personal interests.

My job sometimes involves traveling for work, and will also spend holidays in Europe (likely Germany or the UK). If circumstances permit, I would consider inviting my Au pair along to continue helping with childcare - certainly for work trips, possibly also during holidays - all upon arrangement and discussion, of course.

The Au pair would have their own room in my apartment, with their own bathroom (bathroom only to be shared if I have friends/family visiting). The apartment is quite big, with a large living room, kitchen and nice balcony, on a quiet road of Cairo (Maadi). Most amenities (shops, cafes, gyms) are easily accessible by foot, and taxis are cheap and easily available.
