Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We are looking for an organised, sensible and reliable au pair to help us with our two beautiful children in Sydney, Australia. We need someone who takes initiative and has previous childcare experience with young children to live with our fun and busy family for approximately 6-18 months. We have had four wonderful Au Pairs who were each with us for ~9 months.

My husband and I work in finance and health and are very busy at work during the week but we are both super hands-on when we are home. My husband and I work full time (4 in the office, and 1 from home most weeks). I am a registered psychologist, who works in the public health space.

We live in Sydney's Lower North Shore (a suburb called Lane Cove), about a 5 min drive or 10 minute bus trip to Sydney Centre/ City, and 10 minute bus trip to our local and beautiful Balmoral Beach. We are also walking distance, and close to local shops, swimming pools and transport options. During the week, you will have access to our car, and if organised in advance you can have access to our car on weekends when possible.

Job Description

You will have Saturday, Sunday and Monday to yourself to explore the city, beaches and Sydney lifestyle. The three day weekend would even allow you to travel for long weekends away.

On Tuesdays and Wednesday's you will just need to drop the kids at school/daycare and pick them up. The middle of the day is light housework (such as kids washing) and your own time. If one of the children is off sick you would have them with you on those days.

Thursdays and Fridays you would be looking after the children from 7:30am as we get ready and go to work until 6:30pm/7pm when one of us arrives home. On that day you would be dropping and picking up Chelsea from school, and looking after Parker.

We have a regular house cleaner but we need someone to assist with light housework like meal preparation for the children, children’s (and your own) laundry, tidying up after the kids meals and their toys, some vacuuming. You will also need to clean your own bathroom/room.

We would prefer and au pair who
- Has childcare experience of children ages 3+ years old
- Has a recent first aid certificate- preferable children's first aid (or being willing to complete on arrival)
- Hold a current police check/CRB certificate
