Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We are a Canadian family living in Somerset England. We have just recently moved from Scotland and are happy for our next adventure.

We are a 20 minute drive from Bath, 45 minutes from Bristol and 1 hour 20 minutes by train to Paddington station in London.

Frome is the nearest town - Google discover Frome for interesting info. We do not know the ins and outs of the area yet as we have just moved here in August 2021.

Our family is laid back but we are busy – we’re looking for someone who will fit our energetic lifestyle with flexibility.
If you love character homes, and the countryside, but like good access to the city—and love being part of a family and playing with kids and animals, you’ll love it here.

Job Description

- Care of 11 and 6 year old boys (Carson and James) with the help of our Labrador(Penny), which includes play, walks, light housework, school runs, and some meal preparation and keeping them safe and happy;

- Some flexibility is a requirement. We will always respect your time, but our schedules change periodically. We will review each others diaries on a weekly (fortnightly if we possible) basis to ensure someone has the children! Having said that, the hours will almost always be, unless negotiated otherwise, from Monday to Friday and won’t surpass 30 hours unless otherwise negotiated. Both parents occasionally have to be away overnight at the same time.

- We’re also looking for someone who would be willing to occasionally come on trips with us – we’d, of course, pay the costs but expect some childcare;

- We’re looking for someone for about 1-3 months at first with options to renew - but we are flexible on this;

- Driving license preferred as doing the school run would be an important part of the role.

- Keen on finding someone who will fit in with our family – energetic but laid back – hopefully interested in a bit of sport (the boys would be thrilled!), cooking, travel, etc.

- Multiple languages are an asset – especially if you can teach us!

We live in a large 7 bedroom house in the countryside. An Au Pair who stays with us will have their own bedroom with a double bed, clothes cupboard, and desk. They will also have access to their own bathroom. Our house has a drawing room, tv room (snug) music room, games room, large kitchen, etc – so there is lots of room to enjoy your own space. We will always include you in the grocery orders and invite you to join us for meals - but you're also very welcome to do your own thing!
