Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear au pair,

We are a family of five with lovely three girls (1yo, 3yo, and 7yo) and considering welcoming an au pair to our family from August 2019 to July 2020.

We are looking for an individual who is honest, caring, tenderhearted, open-minded, down-to-earth, and willing to live as a family member, not like an employee, but like a big sister.

As an au pair, we expect you to take care of our children and help some light housekeeping as both of the parents are working full time.

Since we had been living in the United States until recently, both parents can speak English well, and the eldest daughter speaks basic-level English.

We used to live in an international environment and hope to continue providing such an environment for our children in Japan.

Our home is located in Japan's ancient samurai city, Kamakura, which is about an hour from central Tokyo by train and surrounded by nature, including forest and sea. So, you may experience both Japanese traditional culture and nature during your stay.

We can also help you with your Japanese language study and can offer Japanese class which is managed by a local NGO if needed.

Due to the Working Holiday Visa restriction, we can only accept a citizen of the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Republic of Korea, Lithuania, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.

We hope we can find an au pair who will fit into our family and share a wonderful life with us.

Warm regards,

Job Description


We are looking for a female au pair who:

- is fluent in English
- loves kids
- has some experience with childcare (e.g., babysitting, camps, etc.) and household chores
- can communicate well
- is non-smoker
- is flexible and adaptive
- is at least 20 y.o.

Japanese language skill is not mandatory, but some basic knowledge is desirable because not so many people in Japan can speak English, and it would not be easy to live without using it.

We own a car, but you don't have to have a driver's license because the public transportation is well established here.

We love traveling. You can either join us as a family member or just use such time for your own.

We put importance on your privacy and willingness.

Job Description:

First, we are looking for an au pair as a part of our family and would like you to be like a big sister of my daughters.

We do not want to be business-like, but here are some guidelines for a daily routine:

1. In the Morning (Mon-Fri: 6:00-7:00: 1 hr)

- change clothes
- change diapers
- support preparing a routine set of belongings for schools
- support preparing breakfast

2. In the Afternoon (Mon-Fri: 15:00-20:00: 5 hrs)

- pick up the eldest daughter at the station (7-minute walk)
- help her doing self-study
(you do not have to teach her directly, but please sit next to her and encourage her to study. We put importance on our child education.)
- play with children
- help children having dinner, taking a shower and getting sleep
* we might also ask picking up the middle one from her nursery, which is located one station away.

- take clothes into/out from washer/dryer and fold clothes
- take dishes into/out from dishwasher and store them into the kitchen cabinet
- floor cleaning as needed (robots mostly do floor cleaning)
- support preparing dinner (the parents will do it mainly, so please support)

3. On Saturdays (7:00-12:00: 4 hrs)
- help children's self-study

Occasionally, we have an irregular work schedule, and we might ask some irregular tasks, particularly during summer/winter/spring holiday season.
So, we prefer you to be flexible in working time, but please notice that we do not intend to offend you by overwork. In that case, you can receive either compensatory off or pocket money.

Our grand family is living very close to our house, so you can talk directly with them when you need help.

What we offer:

We've just built our new home so that you will stay in a brand new house. You will have your room (about ten sq meters) with a closet.

Daily breakfast, lunchbox, and dinner will be covered either by meals, foodstuff or occasionally extra cash.

Pocket money: 10,000 JPY per week (approx. 350 USD per month)

Japanese national health insurance,
accident/liability insurance if needed

Japanese language class:
1-2 classes/week (1h45m per class)

Paid vacation:
Two weeks per year
