Job Description

You'll need to be:
• Energetic, active and outdoorsy with a genuine love for getting out and about with kids

• An experienced and confident driver
• Able to provide references
• Able to get a police check and WWCC and preferably first aid certificate
•. Fully vaccinated against COVID 19
• Preferably a non-smoker
Your duties will include:
• Help with getting the kids sorted before and after school and kinder including school lunches and staying on top of their routines, homework etc. Plus casual babysitting if you are keen. You'll need to be quite autonomous with the kids and able to manage the three of them confidently.
• Some light housework (ie helping with dishes, laundry, but we know you are not a cleaner or a maid!). Participating in the daily running of the house.
• Option for extra paid cleaning work. Further option for paid secretarial work for the right person, if you are keen on extra hours.
• Some cooking will be needed - basic kids dinner etc. We can provide help / ideas if you’re not confident with this.
• Occasionally helping getting kids to medical appointments.
• Transporting kids to and from school and to after school activities - a driver’s licence is NOT NEGOTIABLE unfortunately. Own car not necessary.
About us:
• We are an Anglo/Aussie mum (me) and a Hazara/Australian dad (Irfan).
• Both parents work long hours but are flexible, available and hands-on.
• Two of our sons have ADHD but it is well managed- all three of them have a lot of energy! You will need to be patient and calm - there is sometimes some bad language that flies around sometimes... you need to be able to let that pass you by without taking it personally. You will always be supported by us as parents in working with our family to find strategies and techniques that will work for everyone.
• Our home is loving and welcoming. We welcome people of all cultural and linguistic backgrounds and are LGBTQIA+ friendly.
Here are the details:
• Generous pocket money and conditions!
• Dates late June / July 2024 for 6-12 months.
