Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello and I hope to welcome you to the beautiful town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire. The town is considered very prestigious being a Victorian spa town and retains working original Victorian spa baths. The town is home to some fantastic restaurants and shops, outstanding schools and colleges and surrounded by a 100 acre park (known as the Stray).

The town is perfectly placed for nature lovers as it sits at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire Moors and only 45/50minutes to the Lake District. If nature isn't for you, the cities of Leeds, York and Bradford are 30 minutes by train, bus or car with Manchester a little over 1 hour away and London only 2.5 hours by train.

Job Description

We are looking for someone who can fit into our relaxed house but also help out with the daily activities of 2 busy lives. I'm looking for some who is happy to support me looking after my son, for example school drop of or pick ups during term time, some dog walking, entertaining my son and helping to develop him as a person through a broad variety of activities. If you're able to speak Spanish that would be useful as I want to continue to nurture the language skill he already has.

In addition some light household tasks and some basic administration support for me would be wonderful. Generally we are very flexible and that also means we are very accommodating too.
