Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

To our new Au Pair,

Firstly, thank you for considering living with our family. We have had three Au Pairs before and it was a great experience each time, so we are really looking forward to inviting someone new into our family again.

We are very proud and pleased to have fulfilled a lifelong ambition to design and build our own brand new home and we have just moved in. We live in one of the most beautiful and sought after towns in the UK, Henley-on-Thames, which is on the river, very safe and friendly and actually quite near to London and other big cities.

The house is three stories, has five bedroom and six bathrooms and you would have your own floor of the house, bedroom and en suite. The top floor also has a beautiful view of across Henley and the surrounding countryside, which you would have to yourself.

As a family we are extremely active and there is always something happening! We have very busy and demanding jobs and two very active and demanding children, so it is never a dull day in the Myers household! :)

Rebecca (Mother) owns and runs a recruitment consultancy in the next town and a Fitness business in which she is a Personal Trainer in the local area as well and owns her own Gym. We would offer gym membership to Rebecca's gym and Personal Training if you would like it.

Sam (Father) is Head of Department in a Creative Agency in London (Moving Image Production), but is often away with work in Manchester, Plymouth and the United States. He is often away from home up to three times a week.

We have two (very handsome!!) little boys. Charlie is 10 and in year 5 at school. He is an extremely good footballer and is actually in the academy for one of the Championship Football Clubs in the country. He is also very bright and a savvy little boy who never forgets anything and has boundless energy. Harry is just about to turn 8 and in year 3 at school. He is super cute and very different in personality to his brother. He is also academically very bright, extremely creative and a kind, considerate, tolerant soul.

It is very much worth highlighting that Charlie has ADHD and has been diagnosed for nearly 7 years now. He is on medication to help with his concentration. He also has external consultants and specialists to help him manage his condition. On occasion he can come across as 'naughty' and 'not listening' but he is usually better with other people, not his parents :) You would definitely need to be a tolerant person and understanding of this condition, although it is managed well by everyone around him.

We are ideally after an Au Pair who will just fit into our crazy lives and be able to go with the flow. You will need to have a relaxed but mature attitude to life and be able to manage the boys efficiently but certainly be able to laugh and be silly with them as well. You will need to have a good level of fitness to be able to keep up with them (and us) and enjoy trying new experiences with us, but also be very happy to amuse yourself during the day time. You will also need to like dogs - Teddy is a very cute and fluffy dog who is easy to look after but he still needs attention and walkies.

We are happy to answer any questions you have and thank you again for considering our family.

Thanks very much
Rebecca Myers x
