Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


We live in the Highlands of Scotland in a small town called Cromarty on the east coast peninsula of the Black Isle.
It's by the sea and very pretty, with beaches, nice walks in the countryside, caves and dolphin spotting nearby.
My husband Lucio and I work from home. Lucio is a scientist and academic and I am a writer and herbalist, I also run a herbal tea business from home.

We have three children. Luis (13) our oldest goes to high school and likes to play guitar, computer games, mountain biking and rowing. Luna (3) goes to a child minder two days a week, and loves ballet, art and spending time outdoors in Nature and with her friends in the park. Cosmo (8 months) is our baby and enjoys long walks in his pram, going to the park with his sister, playing on his baby mat and also has long naps once or twice a day.

Lucio is Italian and our daughter Luna speaks Italian (I am learning!). We'd love a person who can speak Italian with the children too. In return, we can also help you improve your English.

We'd love a pair of 'helping hands' to allow us some time to work during the week, without worrying about the youngest children.

Ideally this would be someone who could take care of Cosmo for a few hours daily, and Luna too on the days when she isn't at the childminder. We'd love if you can prepare their meals , and go for a walk or to the beach or park with them during the day.

In your free time, there are lots of activities locally to interest you and also good transport for accessing much of the highlands, and also further afield. We have a family car, and this may be available to you with prior arrangement too.

You'll have your own room and meals provided and of course pocket money. Working hours will be roughly 5 hours daily Mon-Fri - and you will have every weekend off.

If you want to take a longer weekend to go somewhere, we are also flexible with this and will aim to help you.

We're looking for someone who could start from June onwards for a period of 2-4 months initially.

Please get in touch if you have any questions. (Italian or English is fine!)

Job Description

Around 5 hours daily Monday to Friday. Looking after the youngest children and preparing their meals. Mostly getting them ready in mornings, giving them breakfast, and lunch and entertaining them- taking them walks and outside for a while, and giving them dinner, then preparing them for bed. There may be some light housework- such as clearing table of dishes, tidying up after children, putting away toys etc,

You will have every weekend off.

We don't generally go out, but we may ask once or twice if you can babysit a few extra hours in the evening. If so, we will pay you extra.

Some rules we would ask of you:

We don't smoke, and so we ask if you smoke to do so outside the home.
We also enjoy a little wine or beer at weekends and of course you can too- but we ask you not to come to the house drunk, or to use any substances while staying with us.
We also ask that you don't bring overnight guests to our home.
