Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


We are a British/German family looking for an au pair who can speak fluent or native German, because we are bringing the children up bilingual English/German. We live in Blackheath, which is near Greenwich, an attractive area in south east London

Our dates are potentially flexible - we are looking for someone to start between September and January 2024, and staying with us until July 2024. We welcome anyone who is Ukranian in particular.

Please only apply if you have some experience of looking after children, maybe from regular babysitting. We will ask for references if your application is successful.

**** IMPORTANT. Because the U.K. left the European Union at the end of 2020 (‘Brexit’), it is now very difficult for a U.K. family to legally employ an au pair from another country. You can legally work in the UK as an au pair if you lived in the U.K. before the end of 2020 and have ‘pre-settled status’. Or you have a student visa (eg 15+ hours study each week, where you are in full time education). Or you have a British passport. Or you are Ukrainian, and lived in the Ukraine at the end of 2021. Or you can be from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Iceland, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Monaco or San Marino, which means you can apply for a Youth Mobility Scheme visa.

If this does not apply to you, you can visit the U.K. as a tourist for 6 months, or if you do English classes you can get a short term visa for up to 11 months. But you can’t get a work visa to be an au pair. Maybe some U.K. families will be ok to employ you illegally, but there is still a risk for you that you fly to the U.K., and if the border police do not believe that you are a tourist, then they send you on a flight back home again.

We can’t employ someone illegally. Please only contact us if you are able to legally work in the U.K.****

Job Description

Emily looks after the kids on Mondays, and the au pair job is for about 15-20 hours Tuesday-Friday.

You need to help get the children out of bed about 7.30am and get them ready for school. At 8.30-8.45, you will need to drop out son and daughter off at school (a 10-15 minute walk or 5 minute cycle from our house). You will then need to pick them up 3.30 - 4.30 pm (sometimes there are clubs and activities after school). Your working day finishes 7pm.

There will be the opportunity for occasional evening babysitting (for example when Emily has parents’ evening and Mike has a work event), but we will pay extra and give you plenty of advance notice.

We can discuss salary etc when we speak.

We would expect you to give the kids a snack after school and then play with them, encourage our son to do any homework, and play with and stimulate our daughter. We would expect you to keep the house tidy (including clearing away toys) and to clear up after yourself, but we do have a cleaner once a week to clean the whole house. It would be great if you could help with washing and hanging out the childrens’ clothes. We will cook the evening meal when we get home, (and we usually have 1-2 takeaways per week). If you could help wash up after meals, that would be fantastic, and if occasionally you would like to cook, of course we won’t stop you!

Because Emily is a teacher, we would need you to take your holiday allowance during school holiday.

In terms of what we are looking for in an au pair, we understand that you will want your own space, but we also want someone who will be an active part of the family. If we eat out or go on a short trip at the weekend then you are very welcome to join us.

We are keen to help make your stay a success, and we will assist you with finding language schools to study English (or even another language) if that is what you want to do, or we can contribute to gym membership or a different course.

We live in Blackheath in south east London, which is a nice green area close to Greenwich. We like it because it feels like a village, with some good places to eat and drink, but it is still very easy to get into the middle of London. It’s also only a 20 minute walk to Greenwich Park.

We live in a large 6 bedroom house, with a good sized front and back garden. Your bedroom would be on the ground floor, separate from the rest of us so you’ll have your own space and privacy. There is a bathroom (with a shower) next to your room which the children sometimes use, but mostly it’s for your use. We are relaxed and you would be welcome to eat with us or not - as you prefer.
