Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We are a friendly family of four living in Garðabær, Iceland. We are looking for an enthusiastic, friendly, and reliable au-pair.

We are hoping to find nice person who is good with kids to help us in our daily life and at the same time experience living in, learning about and experiencing Iceland. We hope to provide the au pair with a healthy balance of independence and a feeling of being a part of our family.

Child care experience is a plus but not a must. We are non-smokers and expect the same of our au-pair. We hope to typically involve the au pair in family activities and traditions, including dining, family trips and vacations, etc. We also look forward to learning about the au pairs own traditions.

We live in a nice quiet neighbourhood called Urriðaholt, a large-scale urban extension located in Gardabaer town (Icelandic: Garðabær), on the outskirts of the Reykjavík capital area, approx. 15-20 minute drive from downtown Reykjavik. There is a 5-10 min walk from a popular park, Heiðmörk, with many trails, lakes, waterways, forests and lava fields. Our house is located with a great view over lava fields and a beautiful lake Urriðavatn. Ikea, Costco and a large grocery store are located in a 5-10 min walking distance. There is also a crossfit gym located in a 15 min walking distance.

Job Description

The au-pair will be asked to help get the girls ready for the day on weekdays, walk with Aníta to school (10 min walk) and tidy up after breakfast. We would also like to have help taking care of the girls after work/school while we get dinner ready. For 1-2 evenings a week we would need babysitting. Most weekends would be off, and if not a day off would be scheduled during the week instead.

Pocket money will be at minimum 15.000 ISK. The au-pair staying with us would have free access to our food and kitchen as needed and we will do our best to meet special grocery shopping needs.
