Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We live in a small town called Kungälv, which is located appr 25 km north of Gothenburg. We live close to the city centre, appr 2 km, but still in the countryside. It is easy to walk or ride a bike to the city centre. It is also easy to take the bus to Gothenburg, a bus ride that takes about 20 - 25 minutes.

Since our house is located it the outskirts of town it gets pretty dark at night, so this is not a place to live if you are afraid of the dark.

Just outside our house there are a fairly large forest, with excellent running or walking paths.

Job Description

You will be the spider in the net that makes our family life easier and runs smoothly.

Since our kids are fairly independent your work will be more focused on housework than taking care of children.

We have no ”cleaning lady” so it is your own responsibility to clean your own room and toilet.

This is what we need you to help us with during weekdays.

The laundry, and cleaning the laundry room, will be your responsibility. You are not required to iron.
I appreciate the time of work to 6 h/week

The recycling will be your responsibility
I appreciate the time of work to 30 min/week

”Clean up” the house each morning after that the family has left. Empty/fill the dishwasher etc.
I appreciate the time of work to 3 h/week.

Pick up the kids at school at 4 pm every day and beyond that help with the kids in different ways, for instance help them with their homework each day.
I appreciate the time of work to 10 h/week.

Vacuum-clean the floors in common areas of the house every day. Vacuum-clean the whole house once a week.
I appreciate the time of work to 3 h/week.

Clean bathrooms once a week. I appreciate the time of work to 1 h/week.

Help prepare meals or cook. I appreciate the time of work to 3-4 h/week.

One or two nights per week we need help with babysitting or taking the kids to activities at night. I appreciate the time of work to 2 h/week.

I want to stress that it is all our responsibility go keep the house in order, take care of the children and help each other.

It is important for us that the description of the work above is flexible. One week we might think it is more important that you clean the fridge than the bathrooms.

It could also be that the estimated work-effort is wrong. In that case we will adjust it afterwards.

Our expectations of you are that you are physically active, do some sort of sports, like to go running or take walks. We also want you to be psychologically stable and able to create a life of your own, with friends and hobbies. There are a lot of activities that you can attend nearby, like choirs, sport clubs, and a place where you can go swimming. In Gothenburg there are a lot of museums etc. There are at least one other au pair (that we know of) in Kungälv.
