Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello future aupair!

Here is some information that I think you will like to read!

About the role

Helping with kids arrangements - mostly getting clothes sorted and basic tasks. They are well able to manage homework as they are 12 and 17.
Help in the house - basic cleaning and shopping. We eat (mostly) healthy food! You would be able to ask for what you like and would be able to make your own food or join in meals. Easy for vegetarian too.
Help with pets - dog walks and looking after gorgeous animals, two dogs and one cat.

This arrangement is usually accommodation with full board in exchange for this help, allowing you time to study, or take up extra activities. However, we would also provide some spending money of up to £70 per week

Travel costs can be assisted for the right candidate as long as they stay for a minimum of 6 months.

The location

We live between a coastal town called North Berwick (said to be the most beautiful place to live in the UK) and Edinburgh. Your base would be in a studio in our North Berwick home. Own space and own bathroom, but you’d be using the home too. It gives you some space of your own, with wifi.

It is an incredibly safe, friendly and pretty place to live.
You don’t need to drive.

Our life

The children go to school in Edinburgh, so are mostly away Mon-Fri from 7-5.30pm. One night a week they will stay in Edinburgh but you’d not be expected to help with that. You’d stay and look after the pets.

Our home is shared by co-parents, Amanda (speaks Spanish) and Crawfurd. We both work sometimes in London so we alternate in the house. Our children’s Grandmother also lives close by.

If we are on holiday you’d be expected to stay to look after the pets. This will be for 4 days in Oct, and 4 days in Dec. You can return home for Christmas on 23rd Dec and be back for Jan 6th.

It's a lovely, busy home and a very friendly and safe environment. We are looking for a friendly, kind and resourceful person.
