Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We live in very sought after Georgian Quarter of Liverpool. Due to its charm, our street is routinely featured in TV shows and movies, such as Peaky Blinders, Victoria and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We are situated in the heart of the city centre, so anything you could want to do is just a short walk or bus ride away. There are bus stops that will bring you to the surrounding areas within a 5 minute walk from our doorstep and the train station that will bring you throughout the UK is about a 20 minute walk away.

For being so centrally located, our street is relatively quiet as it is a non-through road. There are a few smaller parks within a short walk, and a few larger ones slightly further out.

Job Description

The majority of the job would be helping care for Leo during the day. This includes dressing her, preparing light snacks and meals, changing nappies, lots of play and mental stimulation. Butters will also need walking throughout the day. I will be home with you a great deal of the time, but I will usually be in another room and will occasionally need to pop out for meetings etc. You might need to occasionally bring her to play groups in the city as well or accompany us on outings.

While Leo always comes first, the role also involves some housework. This includes laundry, tidying Leo's toys at the end of the day, helping with dishes, running the hoover or mop, bringing out rubbish and various other household tasks. We do have a professional cleaning team that comes once a month, but essentially help in keeping things tidy day to day and helping us stay on top of things around the house. We would also greatly appreciate help preparing meals for everyone. We would love a keen cook (I am myself) who could help us plan meals for the week and create healthy snacks for Leo.

In general, we wouldn't need help after about 5:30pm on weekdays and would very rarely need help on weekends, so you should have plenty of free time. I usually lay down with Leo during her naps, so you would have that time during the day to either help with other things or as free time. Duncan and I might try to have a date night out once in awhile, but Leo usually sleeps well for the first half of the night and wouldn't require much more than monitoring. We occasionally have holidays away, during which we would appreciate you looking after Butters. This is a few short walks a day, feeding him and cuddles.

Since neither of us are originally from Liverpool, we do not have family close by. I injured my shoulder over the summer and have been struggling to always properly care for our daughter, dog and general household things without help. We have plenty of space in our home and felt it might be a lovely opportunity for someone to experience our beautiful city and to help us, especially as I continue to recover. We would love for Leo to have another person in the house to help provide mental stimulation and love. We have had a lovely Au Pair stay with us over the last few months and found it to be a good experience that we are keen on continuing.

We would provide a schedule for the upcoming week so you can make plans around it, but we do appreciate a bit of flexibility and the willingness to pitch in if something unexpectedly comes up.
