Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello, we’re a family of 3 (plus the cat). Kat (33), Stu (37) and Alfie (10 months).

We’re looking for an English speaking Au Pair to live alongside us for a few months. Stuart is often abroad with work to various locations across the globe (we sometimes travel with him) and therefore, I’m often solo parenting. Which is hard work.

We’re therefore, looking for someone who can help me whilst Stuart is away with childcare, and also around the home.

We travel a lot, and sometimes it can be last minute. So we would either bring you with us, or give you a week or so off, if it wasn’t appropriate. For the summer, we plan to stay in Poole, with a few weekend trips here and there. But we like to keep life exciting, so you would come along for that ride!

I need help with cooking, tidying, cleaning, and looking after Alfie a bit so I can have a break. Also, to join me on boat trips, hikes, and travel to family who live across the country. So enjoying the outdoors and being a bit adventurous is ideal!

We live in a cool town, right by the water, but also a great spot for hiking, with access into central london via train in 2 hrs. We’re near to Bournemouth city. Our town is a place for anyone who loves the sea, and outdoor activities.

Job Description

The job would require things like:
- Taking my son first thing for play, and breakfast so I can have some more sleep and shower in peace etc. I breastfeed and am awake much of the night so need more rest.
- Food shopping
- Preparing some evening meals
- Assisting with household jobs - like tidying, cleaning, laundry.
- Assisting me sometimes when I take Alfie out to classes, and swimming, healthcare appointments etc.
- Playing with Alfie at home for 2-3 hours during some parts of the day
- Assisting with Alfie outdoors so I can enjoy a sea swim or something water based. You can of course do this too.
- Joining for trips on the boat in the summer, hiking, and being company for some outdoor activities.
- Coming along on some weekends if I need to travel to see family or potentially travel abroad to see Stu. This would be discussed and agreed prior.
- When Stuart is home (15% of the time) we will need less help than the above but still require chunks of time where Alfie is played with so that we can both work.

I expect hours I require most assistance would be between 7-10am, and then again from 3pm-6pm, with the day time hours being not always required. Some times I will need more and sometimes less.
