Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hi there! We are Sandra and Alison, a same-sex female couple who are looking for an Au pair to join our family from December/January 2020 (up until September 2020 or for a shorter period the Au pair is able to commit to). We have three young children (identical twin girls currently aged a month old and a ten month old girl!). Sandra returns to work in January and as Alison will then have all three children to care for we are looking for some assistance. The Au pair will not be expected to have sole care of the three children but rather will be asked to assist Alison with the care of the children e.g helping change nappies, making meals for our daughter, helping dress the children, playing games/entertaining the children and accompanying Alison and the children to baby groups. We are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic individual who is keen to spend time with young children. With having three young children, it is inevitably a fairly busy household and therefore it is important the Au pair is energetic and flexible, as we will also be.
We live in a four bed home in the residential area of Salford, which is just 5 miles northwest of Manchester City Centre. There are lots of easy transport options into the city of Manchester from our home, and there are available language schools within the city. We live very close to Salford University, and have amenities such as supermarkets, library, parks, hospitals etc. within walking distance. We are also very near to Salford Quays, which has many recreational activities and is where the BBC, ITV and many other companies are based. We have a lovely spare room recently decorated for the purpose of an Au pair joining the family.
We already employ a cleaner who cleans the house weekly and therefore the Au pair will not be expected to clean the house, but rather will be expected to contribute to the general tidiness and general running of the home.
Although it would be a bonus if the Au pair had experience with young children, it is more important to us that the Au pair is keen to learn and willing to give their best to ensure the children receive excellent care. We are open to further discussion about the amount of pocket money paid depending on experience.
As we have young babies, cleanliness and personal hygiene is really important to us. Similarly, it is also essential the Au Pair is a non-smoker due to the associated risks to babies.
We are excited to welcome an Au Pair in to our home and are looking forward to sharing family life together!

Job Description

As one or both of us will be on maternity leave for a year from September 2019, our au pair will not be expected to be in sole charge of the children. We are looking for an au pair who will support our family, not be expected to be wholly responsible for any element of family life, although if the Au Pair would like more responsibility for purposes of experience we are open to discuss this. We have had an individual live with us for a period of time whilst she undertook some work experience. She was from Belgium and we really enjoyed the cultural exchange and company!

Our au pair would be expected to help out with elements of childcare, and general household tasks. We will support language and cultural learning. As the children are young, experience with newborns will be helpful.
