Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello there

Looking for an aupair to start September 2022 in Devon, near to Plymouth.

I am looking for an au pair/mothers help required for a minimum of 6 months starting asap in Devon (England) near Plymouth, Devon. Sadly for us our current au pair is leaving us after two and a half years to live with her boyfriend and carry on her studies at Plymouth University. We are very pleased for her of course and she will continue to be part of our family.

You should be a non smoker.

Driving is not essential but if you can drive we have a car for your use so you can go exploring in your free time. We also have a bike you can use.

My name is Anya and I am Lawyer, my husband is Alan who does sustainability and environmental work. Our children are Alexander (9yrs old born May 2013) and twins Hamish and Charlotte (6 years old born September 2015). Both Alan and I work away from home every so often but you would also have a parent at home.

We also have a ginger cat called Marron who for some reason sleeps in the sink in the kids bathroom!! We also have 2 now grown up kittens Cuddles and Stripester, and 4 chickens called Dottie, Chocolate, Ice and Shadow.

We live in a large (circa 2000 people) lovely village 8 miles to the east of Plymouth and we are about 2 miles from the sea. The village has:-
two pubs
a primary school
A pre school
A forest school
post office
2 hotels
a most amazing farm shop
a lovely river running through the village and
great woods to walk in.

The village has vibrant community with lots going on each year, for example:-
the annual duck race
an annual village sports gala
boules competitions
a youth organisation.

We have a tall rambling old house and a large south facing garden in which we spend a lot of time playing, growing of fruit and vegetables and generally having fun.

We have a gym at the end of the garden equipped with a cross trainer, step machine, exercise bike, running machine and boxing bag.

We are lucky enough to have 6 bedrooms and four floors. The top floor is the children’s floor with 3 bedrooms a bathroom and a separate ensuite for Alexander. The next floor down has our bedroom and the adult bathroom along with a spare bedroom which is also my office. The next floor down has two rooms - Alan's study, and your bed sitting room. The lowest floor has an open plan family room (with fire) and kitchen which flows into a conservatory that we use as a playroom that walks straight out into our garden. There’s also a toilet on the lower ground floor.

Our garden has 3 separate areas, a formal flat lawn at the top, down to vegetable plots then into the orchard and chicken run at the bottom plus a huge wooden shed of which part is a gym.

There's loads to do round here, including some fantastic walking and beaches. Plymouth is a seaside city with a great university culture.

Job Description

I am looking for an au pair to generally be part of our chaotic and fun loving family and to help us out looking after that family and our house.

More specifically it’s getting the children up and having breakfast with us, taking the children to and from school The role also includes helping the children with their homework, playing with the children, some laundry and ideally cleaning - the cleaning is all on one day and takes our current au pair, the lovely Martina, 3.5 hours a week.

You would have your own room with a tv, desk, sofa, wardrobe etc and a bed. All meals are included. You would share our adult bathroom. The children have their own bathroom.

30 hours a week for £120 per week pocket money plus food and accommodation etc. There is flexibility to do more (which will be paid as extra). For example some evenings the children have clubs which if there is only one parent at home would mean we need you to look after the children who are not going to clubs until we are back - the latest return time is 7.30pm at the moment

Saturday's and Sundays off.

Weekdays you will have a good chunk of free time too from 9am to 2.45pm
