Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

***UNFORTUNATELY WE NEED TO HALT THE SEARCH FOR NOW AS WE ARE LOOKING FOR A HOUSE TO RENT (FROM MAY ONWARDS WE WILL NEED TO MOVE OUT FROM OUR HOUSE TO PROGRESS WITH THE BUILD).
ALSO, I HAVE A FEW SHORTLISTED CANDIDATES ALREADY (IF WE MANAGE TO RENT SOMETHING OUT). I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED. ***


*** PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL NEED TO BRING YOUR OWN CAR. WE LIVE IN THE COUNTRYSIDE AND YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO DRIVE TO GO ANYWHERE. WE CAN HELP WITH THE COST OF THE TRAVEL/FERRY TICKET BUT CAN NOT ADD YOU TO THE INSURANCE OF OUR CARS. WE HAVE ALREADY TRIED FOR OUR CURRENT AU PAIR AND OUR INSURER REFUSED THE 'BUSINESS COVER'. THIS IS BECAUSE IF YOU ARE AN AU PAIR AND DRIVING THE CHILDREN AROUND IS CONSIDERED WORK .
APART FROM THE COST OF YOUR TRAVEL TO IRELAND, WE WILL ALSO PAY YOU FOR THE MILEAGE WHEN DRIVING THE CHILDREN - 0,25EURO/KM ***

Dear Au Pair,

After great six months with us, our lovely au pair will leave us at the beginning of May. So we have started a new search! Please note regarding the car and driving (on the left side!) before replying.

If you love children and feel like living in beautiful Irish countryside, we are your new family! Both my husband and myself are Polish, but, if you don't speak Polish, we both speak fluent English and of course we will speak English with you. Our older daughter is 7 years old, she goes to school and speaks fluent English and Polish, she has also just started learning French. Our little ones are 2.5 -year old twins - a girl and a boy, they chatter a lot in both English and Polish. We live in a very pictures area, but admittedly it is very rural! We hardly have any neighbours in sight. You really need to like the countryside to enjoy that level of peacefulness:) Still, we are only 1 hour away from Dublin. However you need to drive a car to get anywhere, even to the bus that will take you to Dublin (as I stressed above and you will need to bring your own car).
I am a veterinarian, working in public administration. My job involves quite a bit of travelling. It is sometimes 5 days per month, sometimes less. When I am away, you would need to help my husband, especially with the twins, a bit more (to get them ready for the creche and school, to get them dinner and off to bed etc.). The children attend the creche and school/afterschool. This means that during the week, they are away from home from around 7:30 to 18:00. If you have your car, you will be able to do things while we are away. If you like cooking, and would be able to cook them and us a dinner, great. Still, you would probably be busier during the weekends, as we like to be active and we would go to different places. For that, I could do with an extra pair of hands, but then you will see places and be entertained too (from trips away to trips to a soft-play center for the children birthday parties). My husband is an engineer and works from home (home office job). He is also busy in the afternoons and weekends (we are building an extension to our house and he is working very hard on this project). So he is rarely available for the weekends, and it here is when I would need your help and the extra pair of hands and eyes:) Finally, as the extension to our house is still being built, we have a recently refurbished mobile home on site, with 3 bedrooms, its own bathroom, small kitchen etc. This is our guest house, when we have visitors, but this is also when you will have your own bedroom. I hope this all sound exiting enough! We are looking forward to meeting you!
