Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Originally translated from Deutsch
I am Nicole, a single mother of 2 children (Olivia 2008, Carlo 2011).
We are Swiss, but have lived in Italy for 3 years and therefore speak German and English as well as Italian and a little French.
We live 12 minutes from the center of Zurich in a beautiful house with a garden and animals in Küsnacht, very close to Lake Zurich.
The city can be easily reached by public transport (very reliable in Switzerland!) Every 15 minutes.

I work as a manager in a medtech company, I am a happy and very well organized woman. My passions are cooking and gardening. I am very interested in the environment and recycling.
My children are nice, well educated, creative and quite independent.
We have rules for mutual respect. I value social skills in my training.
We live with 3 house cats (British Shorthair), 4 chickens and 4 guinea pigs in the garden.
Regarding eating habits: we are not vegetarians, but we also don't eat meat that often.

Overall, I would say that we are all absolutely friendly and easy-going.

Since I work full time, I need someone who has experience and is willing to take responsibility in my home. Since I ask a lot, I also pay more for your work.

You should be a very independent, absolutely clean, warm, calm, honest, fun and well-organized person with experience in all domestic matters. When it comes to children, I appreciate clear rules, firm decisions and adherence to my upbringing principles. You must also be a non-smoker (this is a must).

We have already had several au pairs and nannies so that I have enough experience.

The minimum stay is at least 1 year.

You can work here even if you are over 30 - no problem, we can make another contract, always officially (!), Fully insured.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Job Description

Originally translated from Deutsch
We would like to welcome an independent and reliable woman who is mature enough to look after 2 school-age children and the household as I am full time work Absolute cleanliness and orderliness are familiar and normal.
You also need to be willing to look after the animals and do light chores in the garden (I have a gardener too).

The weekends are usually free and you have 4 weeks of vacation and another 4-6 weeks with very little work (because the kids are on vacation).

I want to be very clear: I'm offering a job that consists of 80% family and 20% children. That's why I pay a higher salary than the au pair normally receives. But I also expect more than a "normal" au pair.
