Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear au pair

My family and I are looking for a new au pair. If you are keen for an adventure in the UK then we would love to welcome you to our home! Ideally I am looking for someone who can drive but if you can't drive then please also get in touch as that is fine as well.

We live in a town in the south east of England called Sevenoaks, it is just a 25 minute train ride into London and we live about a ten minute walk from the station. It is about a 20 minute walk into Sevenoaks town centre from our house but there are also some shops close to our home.

We are a happy, rather busy family, with a mum, a dad and three children – two boys and a girl, aged between 14 and 8. We also have a very sweet-natured dog whose name is Bandit.

As our au pair, you would be part of our family, we would teach you about the UK, show you around and help you with your English. In return we would like you to help look after our children.

We are ideally looking for an au pair to start with us as by the end of August. We would like our au pair to stay with us for a year if you like it here.

We would be flexible on start dates and duration for the right person.

One important point, you must please have a visa to be able to come to the UK and work as an au pair, or have pre-settled or settled status, or be a UK resident. This is because the rules around au pairs and also payment for au pairs have changed since Brexit.

I have set out more details on the position below. I really hope to hear from you!

Very best wishes

Job Description

We have a relaxed attitude towards our au pair. We set out a schedule but it is flexible depending upon whether my husband and I are suddenly around. We try to strike a happy balance so that our au pair is able to have the responsibility and enjoyment of looking after our children, but also that he or she can enjoy freetime and their own activities. This experience is meant to be fun!
The main job for our au pair is childcare. We have a cleaner who comes every week so cleaning is not a main part of the job.
The hours per week of work for our au pair will be around 25.
My job is London-based but there are times when I have to travel overseas. When that happens I may need my au pair to be responsible for the children overnight, though usually my husband is around as well.
We have a car that our au pair can use.
The daily routine involves helping to get the children ready to school and breakfasted. Our oldest two children get themselves to school and back so our au pair only needs to walk our youngest child to school.
Our au pair is then free during the day. Work starts again at school pickup time when our au pair must walk to pick up the youngest child from school and bring them home. Our eldest two children will walk themselves home.
Our au pair should then supervise the children as they do their homework or possibly take them to sports activities. Our au pair should prepare dinner and feed the children. Our children can do their own showers and get themselves ready for bed.
Next, our au pair should read to our youngest child and put them to bed. Our eldest children put themselves to bed.
All sporting activities are close to our home so our au pair is not required to drive more than a few miles.
