Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello there. Would you like to work in the Golden Vale? The songs are sweet and sad or rousing and bawdy. We are a mile and a bit from carrick on suir and a short drive from Waterford, Clonmel and the Comeragh and Galtee mountains. The sea is about a 25 minute drive but we have a small river beside is and the river Suir offers lots of activities. This is horse country and there is a decent riding school and cross country course and dressage ring less than a mile away. Writers, artists and music makers would love this area as poetry, sweet melodies and rousing choruses are performed in many nightspots around here. My mother is a writer and aspiring artist. Someone with a project might well enjoy this position. I work about 3 days a week and do one overnight. You would have access to my mother's car and would be welcome to stay or go on your off time. Full food and board of course. We have two dogs and cats. The are mainly out during the day but come in at might or during bad weather. Sports and activities in the area include car and motorbike clubs, dance classes, yoga, cycling clubs, kayaking and paddle boarding, hurling/camigie, gaelic football, tennis, handball, rugby, soccar, martial arts, gun clubs, equestrian sports, bridge, brewery lane theatre, carrick-on-suir musical society etc etc. We are also steeped in ancient architecture and history.

We have rare mammals and birds on our property.

Because of Covid restrictions, I am limiting my search to the EU, Canada etc. Vaccinated individuals only will be considered.

Job Description

Please be aware that you will be expected to be fully covid vaccinated and have a full valid driver's license. The job entails that you care for my mum while I am working. If she wants to weed the garden, go out and set her up so she is unlikely to fall or has a soft landing. You can help her or not but keep her safe. Cook and dine with my mum, we are fine with spicy food, fish etc my mother won't eat any kind of bird. Tidy up as you go. Hang out washing, bring it in, sweep the floor if it's dirty. General daily housework but jobs outside of daily cooking and cleaning would be paid extra. I would live if you could take the car and go off with mum for an afternoon, go see a castle or for a shop, enrich your minds. On your day off you will continue be welcomed as a family member and encouraged to further your own goals. Respect our home and privacy and we will all get along well.
