Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

hoever you are and hatever you are looking for by signing into this site, I hope you find a great position for you . It may seem odd to start off ith this message, but, you ould be surprised ho many responses e receive that don't come close to fitting our situation. Please respect our desire for hat e are hoping to find by using this site and respect the person and situation e are looking for hile represent exactly hat e have to offer in our home for you. It has to be a good fit for all concerned. Thanks !

I ill start out here asking that you please read over hat e are looking for by joining this site. Please read over the information and if you fit the profile and you think it might be a good fit for you then reach out. e are getting many responses, but, most are from people that don't fit our criteria. Í ant to be courteous, but, Sorry, I don't have the time to respond to the 10 or so people per day that respond and do not fit our situation. Please just take the time to read through and be sure e are the right fit for you and you for us. #1 No Males ( I think hy is obvious and no it doesn't matter if you are gay or straight ) #2 . You must be from an EU country listed in our profile, or from a country here English is a first language. (reason is the girls are speaking Dutch and English and the older one more languages and it is important for us that they do not pick up bad habits in English from someone ho is not a native English speaker . Period) #3 the rest of the descriptions . ( e ride bikes a lot in Holland, so if you don't ride a bike, that's a problem, if you are afraid or allergic to dogs that's a problem as e have a dog, If you don't drive , thats a problem,.Please read over the information and respond accordingly.) If you don't fit us or e don't fit you then don't respond. e have a great household and I think e have a great situation to offer someone that fits. No offense, but, if e don't fit each other hy ould you come here and be miserable. It should be a great experience for all concerned.

The hours and pay can be negotiated, but, it can't be every eekend off as some have requested. The youngest is by mom every other eekend. etc. etc.

As a single father ith 2 girls to raise life can be a challenge. Mom lives nearby , but, the girls are home 80% of the time.The girls are 10 and 15 and pretty much can operate on their on except for cleaning up after themselves as ell as they could and I ould like. For the rest e have a pretty good environment. Beach nearby, boat, lake, SUB boards, bikes etc.

Job Description

I think i described it above , but, the same basic duties that you ould have ith 2 smaller bothers or sisters that cant drive. The father needs time to go to meetings, ork in office (2 doors aay) and the job requires you to pick up or take to school some days, cook , lite cleaning and help as you ould in any family.

You need to be an experienced driver. You need to be able to ride a bike. The most important thing is that you need to be a relaxed member of our family group. The kids are the most important piece in my life and your job is to keep them safe and on the right track. A little cooking , some shopping. Being a good member of the family.

Thats the job.
