Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We (Michael and Derya) are a married couple looking for an au pair to look after our little baby while we're both at work. We live in a 2-bedroom end-terrace house in Sheffield (UK), 20 minutes outside the city centre.

As our names probably give away; I'm English and Derya is Turkish. We met in 2009 while I was on holiday with my family in Turkey and we married in June 2013.

Derya is currently pregnant and due to give birth in July 2019. Once she returns back to work in March 2020 we'd like to invite an au pair to live with us to help take care of the baby (who will be 9 months old at the time).

Job Description

Given that our baby will grow up in England, it's really important to us that he/she is exposed to Turkish culture too and we will raise the baby to be bilingual.

It's for this reason that we'd specifically like a Turkish au pair, who is able to speak to the baby solely in Turkish.

Derya is fluent in English (and Turkish) so communicating won't be a problem and I speak enough Turkish (I hope) that we would also understand each other with little difficulty, though maybe with the assistance of some miming and hand movements!


- Looking after the baby while Derya and I are at work. We both work Monday - Friday, leaving the house at 08:00 and getting back at 17:30.
- Light cleaning
- Some cooking (maybe 3 days per week)
- Occasionally baby-sitting in the evening
- Speak to the baby only in Turkish

What's in it for you?:

Derya is a qualified English teacher with a BA (Hons.) English Language Teacher Training from Uludag Universitesi and so will be able to give you regular private English lessons.

You'll get plenty of free time to pursue your hobbies and we're happy to give you lifts to shopping centres or to bars / clubs.

We currently live in a 2-bed end-terrace house with an attic room which I currently use as an office, but would also store most of the baby's things.

While the kitchen is a little on the small side (3m x 2m), the downstairs of the house is quite open with the 5m x 7.5m space. There is one bathroom (recently rennovated) with a large double shower with a rainfall shower head.

There is also a garden at the back of the house (5m x 10m)

You would stay in the 2nd bedroom (3.5m x 3m) which and easily fits a double-bed, wardrobe and a set of drawers.
