Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We have five action packed boys living at home (the eldest three have moved out), the eldest at home is 13 Our boys are independent, creative thinkers as we like to install independence and do not seek a “worker” in our house but a friend. We need extra eyes, ears hands and a big heart. Our last aupairs (we have 8 in the last 13 years) are now all regarded as family member and dear to our hearts, our eldest son who is 23 recent spent time with his aupair he had when he was 7 in her home in France, so the role you have in the boys life is not taken lightly. Mum is Australian and all the boys were born in Sydney Australia, we moved to New Zealand four years ago, Dad is from New Zealand, although he has lived half his life in Sydney as well. They are all bright, very busy & being boys ready for an argument or fight every second, so I really need an extra set of hands to help-out with childcare & basic house maintenance. We are open to couples taking on the role, so if you are travelling as a couple or pair please consider us. Dad is away for work most days of the week and Mum is an ambulance officer and first aid tutor, so care of the boys to have them at school by 8am and picked up at school by 4.30, or if they catch the bus home in the afternoon 5.30pm. Mum doesn’t work everyday so a bit of flexibility around days and times will be required. If you can cook we would love that, even though we are all capable of this 24/7 365 days a year we like to be inspired, just to know that someone else has thought about feeding the tribe is a treat for mum and dad:) We are looking for someone who is intelligent and creative who has initiative to see what needs to be done and know how to do it without being asked. A love for the outdoors, as well as being organised yet able to operate in chaotic times. We hope to find someone who will love & have fun with our kids, treat them with respect & enjoy learning from each other.

This routine is not everyday, only when Mum is going to work, majority of the time mum and or dad are also around. The 13 and 12 year old boys are self sufficient and do not require much assistance, possibly some one on one exercise time or guidance with their homework, especially Spanish guidance.
