Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello all,

We only require an au pair from April 2020 until June as we have one staying with us until then.....
Welcome to our family profile where we are a family of 8 however only 2 out of the 4 children live with us. We work hard during the week with early morning starts so we are looking for someone to join our fun loving family to help and support us as well as welcome and learn someone else’s culture. This is all new to us so we are looking for someone to join us February/March for as long as you like.

We live in a house with 3 reception rooms so you can have access to your own living room along with your own bedroom, the house is in a lovely quiet cul-de-sac which is fairly busy with children which is always lovely to see, one of my neighbours already has an au pair who is from Spain so you should find friendship easily and maybe learn Spanish too.

You will have plenty of free time to study English, the college is just 20/30 minutes bus ride away.

The town centre is approximately 15 minute walk from our house, this is where you will find the children’s school and bus stops to the nearest City Centres (Durham, Newcastle, Darlington). We are situated on the edge of Weardale which is fantastic countryside with great walks and cycle routes.

Thank you for reading, we are very excited to help someone on their adventure in a new country.

Can we please ask for you to read all of our profile and looked at the photos of our home and you are happy and willing to join our family before contacting us. We are asked many questions that are already in our profile.

We look forward from hearing genuine au pairs.
Jackie & Andrew

Job Description

Your daily duties would only be Monday to Friday to tend to the children on a morning and take them to school, we would also like support with a small amount of housework, dishes, laundry, ironing, work with me preparing and cooking meals. We both leave for work at 5am and I return at 15:15 in time to pick the children up from school however there may be days when you will be required to do this depending on my work commitments as I am sometimes required to work away for a night, my husband tends to get home around 17:20.

Weekends would be for you to relax, enjoy and spend time with us as you wish.

We are quite flexible and open minded so feel free to ask anything and chat to us.

Our 6 year old is starting to learn Spanish at school so we would love for someone to help him and also teach us your language. We are happy for you to spend time with the children by reading, homework, baking with them, taking them to the park and swimming etc. You can do as much or as little as you like, whatever you do you will be apart of our loving family, the boys are already excited to meet you.
