Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear potential new Au Pair

We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK (we're Bias !) however we're about 1km to the sea (Osmington Mills beach) and 5 miles to Weymouth Town (Home of the Olympic Sailing 2012) and stunning beaches. We're about 6 miles to Dorchester, a lovely old market town.

We live on the edge of a small history village, Osmington which has a limited but daily set of bus services to Weymouth, and we're not far to the main trail line to London and thus, we provide a specific car for getting around locally. We have a local SeaLife centre that the kids love, also fun play areas and swimming pool memberships (although current Covid restrictions have some impact here), and as a family Au Pair, the kids will love showing you around ! And the surrounding area is fantastic for exploring with wonderful walks, biking or horse riding

Our nearest language school is on the edge of Weymouth (Weymouth College) about 4 miles from home and has been used by most of our aupairs.

We are looking for an au pair that is reliable and pleasant to have around. Also fun and interested in making the most of being here. There is a lot going on around here especially in the summer months. An au pair is welcome to go out and about with us, even in their time off....

As you will appreciate au pairing is not a straight forward job as you are in our house all the time. We are keen for our au pair to be part of our family. This has worked well in the last 10+ years.

We look forward to finding someone who is willing to get stuck in and be part of an extended family with us, muck in around meal times etc.

We're excited to meet you and look at how you'd fit in with our family and children.

Our best wishes,
Marielle, Chris, and the boys

Job Description

Hours per week about 30 and about 2 evenings babysitting (any day possible, varying but agreed beforehand).
We try to keep au pairs weekends free but sometimes ask to swap some hours round.

Jobs are:
Looking after boys, occasional reading / basic homework with them etc - this is becoming more important as the boys get older - especially if we have periods of home schooling.
Taking boys to school or play dates
Light housework ( Hoover, mopping, and some ironing)
Keeping boys stuff tidy (toys/clothing)
Looking after house and animals when we are away (not essential but a bonus)

You would also have your own car to get about locally but responsible for keeping it clean and fueled.

We have had au pairs since Freddy was 6 months old. The boys love having a fun friend around and we really appreciate the extra help. Our past au pairs have all had great fun and got on well with us. Our previous au pair went home at Christmas and as lock down rules change we are looking for someone to follow on from beginning of May, ideally through To December 2021

Aupairs would have an option to a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, however occasionally we need this for guests and we have the option of another double bedroom with a bathroom/shower room shared with our kids. We have a large house and there is plenty to space to escape to for those times when you want some quiet.

We have a large kitchen breakfast room and several living/lounge areas so it's often easy to find a space to watch TV with and without the family as you need.

As our au pairs need to drive, we provide a car and within the allowance, have have budgeted around £20 a week for the school runs and occasional local trips and after school clubs. We cover all the servicing and insurance as you'd expect.
