Job Description

We need an aupair to help out during summer break in July when me (Freydis, hostmom) and the kids are off work/school/daycare. Mainly to take care of little Styr but also other help with the older girls and housework.

The aupair would take care of 1 year old Styr from 1300-1600 during weekdays, do a list of light housework that should not take more than an 1-2 hours to complete, Babysit the kids (after we put them to bed) 1-2 nights a week, have at least 2 full weekends off.
We go to a cabin with friends 9.-16th of july, so you will be alone in the apartment during that time and can do alot of sightseeing in Reykjavik etc :)

During the day when Styr sleeps or plays at home there would be some light houswork, but mainly time to play with Styr and take him out walking in the pram, to the park, to cafés, playgroups with other aupairs, etc. - he loves to sit in his pram and explore downtown Reykjavík :)

We would support you and help you find friends and/or fun activities to do in your free time. You are allowed to have guests. While you are here you are also welcome to participate in the family life but we also respect your privacy. We would also take you sightseeing ourselves or arrange for you to go with a bus, friends etc. if you want to.

The main requirement is that the aupair is loving towards children and has patients and understanding for them and is able to enjoy being with them. We need an aupair who knows how to do housework and likes to keep clean. You need to be independent, calm under pressure and hard working. We have a flexible home so we need a flexible aupair (ready and able to change so as to adapt to different circumstances). We are not perfect and we do not expect you to be perfect.

We really look forward to welcoming you to our home, introducing you to our friends and help you have a joyful and fulfilling experience in Iceland. We want you too feel good while staying with us and we want you to know that you can always talk to us :)
