Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

I am a single father (a young 55 year old!), have a complicated, busy life bringing up 3 children on my own for the last 4 years but sharing the responsibility with my ex-wife who lives in the nearest town about 5 miles away. The children are with me for a week and then they spend a week with their mum. I live in West Wales in the countryside in a modern house about 5 miles from the nearest town and 2 miles from the nearest beach. It is a very rural area but the nearest town has all the usual shops and facilities: cinema, sports centre, swimming pool, tennis courts, lots of clubs, university. There is a bus that connects with the town and beach about every 2 hours. We have bikes available at the house for cycling.

Job Description

The children live with me from Wednesday to Wednesday and then live with their Mother for the following week until Wednesday, when they return to me. At the moment, I have to leave work early on some days to collect the children from school and take them to various clubs: tennis, judo, swimming, Beavers, football. I would be looking for some help from you in collecting the children from school, taking them home for a snack/tea and then taking them to their clubs. My difficult time is immediately after school (1500 onwards) when I should be in work! It will allow me to carry on working until later in the afternoon. I would need you to help for about 3-4 hours during school days (Monday to Friday) and Saturday morning (for tennis and football clubs). The daytime (until 3pm) would be free for you to explore the area - there is lots of history, castles, beautiful countryside and lovely beaches in West Wales. I would want you to take meals with us and become part of family life. I enjoy cooking – when I have the time! Apart from Saturday morning, your weekends would be free. I may need you to help out a little at weekends if I am particularly busy with my professional work and I may ask you to babysit in the evening if I want to go out.

There is a small University in our local town where you may be able to join an English course or perhaps other English conversation classes or groups. We do lots of talking at home so I am sure your English will improve! My children are very talkative and inquisitive.

I am unclear at the moment whether my ex-wife would like your help too. If she does, you would continue to live in my house as there is no spare room in my ex-wife’s house. You would need to travel each day to her house to help. If she doesn’t need your help, you would have free time in the week they are with their mum (Weds to Weds) but I would like you to do some light chores in my house instead – washing, ironing, hoovering, perhaps cutting the grass. I hope that we can provide a car for you to collect the children from school and take them to their clubs and activities.

Accommodation

The house has 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a large garden and there are a few houses around us, like a small hamlet. You would have your own bedroom and bathroom (with shower, washbasin and toilet) on the 3rd floor with a view of the countryside. You will have the top floor to yourself as my eldest son is about to start University in September. There is wifi in the house and 2 televisions on the ground floor. The garden is next to farmland – it is very quiet. There are no shops near us.
