Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello au pairs! Welcome to our family’s page......We are a friendly family of 5, from Canberra, Australia - our nation’s capital!

Our family is mum, dad, little boy aged 5, our youngest princess aged 10 months, and Bailey, our maltese shitzu.

We are a pretty laid back family, and we are looking for our next au pair to join our family. We welcome our au pairs with open arms, as we know how daunting it will be travelling to a new country and joining a brand new home. We like to provide a home away from home for our au pairs. It can be pretty overwhelming, and we like to make the process as easy as possible. 

Send us a message, we’d love to hear from you!

Job Description

We've hosted 5 au pairs prior to this, and we're now on our search for our 6th one to join our family in March 2020.

We live in Canberra, Australia. The nation's capital. Canberra is an iconic city, big enough to have lots of do, and also small enough to have a country town feel.

We live close to the local town centre where there are shops and cafes, and the local bus stops. Very convenient. We also live in close proximity to a beautiful lake, where you can ride bicycles, jog, go for evening walks or even do barbecues.... and plenty of safe playgrounds for the kids. Canberra also has nature parks, close to country towns, and also close enough to bigger cosmopolitan cities like Sydney and Melbourne. We are also only about 2 hours to the beaches and the snowfield mountains!

We're looking for someone who will enjoy being part of the family, shares a passion for children, and would be open to different cultures and explore living in a different country/city. Someone who will feel like they are a part of our family, but still will enjoy being independent and have time by themselves.

We offer our au pair a lovely, cosy private bedroom with double bed, unlimited wifi usage at home, and all meals at home (or whilst out with us) during their stay with here. In return, we also offer a weekly pocket money allowance. The working roster is very standard, without the need for much after hours work at all. Both my husband and I work for the Australian Government. Our au pair will have evenings and all weekends for herself, to explore the city, meet new people or simply relax at home if she wishes.
