Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

PLEASE. Due to the actual COVID Situation:
You have to have a valid Aupair VISA for Germany or you are 100% sure that your country offers Aupair Visa and the embassy is open. Or you are living in the EU and don't need a VISA.


We are curious and looking forward to meeting you as OUR AuPair soon!
We are living northwest of germany in an area, called Ruhrgebiet, where almost 8mio people are living in ca. 8 towns close together.
Our house is quite close to the city center of Essen in the middle of a beautiful neighborhood with the wood right behind the garden.
We are happy to finished our house after a period of 5 years hard working, building and sweating :)
Now there is a lot of space for us, our cat and chickens (in the garden, NOT in the house) and YOU!
We love to jump on the trampoline outside, barbecue in the garden and go snowboarding in the winter. Our kids love wintersports, swimming, do horseback riding and biking. We hope you are the perfect match for us and we are happy to hear from you!

Job Description

Sometimes I need a helping hand in the household when the kids are in kindergarten or elementary school. You are going to get our small family car to pick up the kids in the afternoon and do some grocery shopping on the way. It is imperative that you have a driving license and driving experience!!!! Otherwise our daily routine can not be managed.
It would be great if you can bring the girl to her horseback riding or the trampoline class and go swimming with the little one time to time when they are back from school. As they got lunch in school we never cook at home - only on weekends. You are free to cook for yourself (mentioned that we are vegetarian and allergic to onions and garlic). In the evening we are dining together with fruits, muesli, bread, sandwiches and yoghurt. We hope you will enjoy that.
It is really essential to have a driving license. And you HAVE TO drive careful and have some driving experiences. No driving beginners please. You are going to need the car to pick the kids up and drive them around.
It would be great if you love child books and songs and making fun in the garden. We love to be outside even on rainy days. There is no bad whether :) for us.
Sometimes - in times like fall or winter - there is a lot of laundry to do. I would appreciate to get some help with it. We have a cleaning lady but she doesn't get the whole big house done in her 6 hours a week. So everyone has to put a hand on in the household. TEAMWORK is our mindset.

If you love and can snowboard that would be a plus. But it is not obligatory of course.

You are going to get one of the nicest rooms in our house. It's quiet, view into the green, you have a desk, a bed, a closet, Internet connection, a big bathroom with shower and a living room you only have to share with the granny, when she stays for one or two night per week at our house (her bedroom is on the same floor - so she uses the bathroom as well). Ground floor there are the family rooms. The doors are open all the time and you are absolutely welcome to stay here until you are tired and want some free time in your room. We have the woods for running and biking behind the house and a brand new indoor swimming-pool and sauna in the basement.
