Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We live in Fawley, which is part of the New Forest national park, and only 15 miles/ 25 mins from the city of Southampton. There is a regular bus service (1min walk from our house), plus access to a car provided. Southampton has an international airport, a number of colleges and universities, and various places offering language courses. It also has a good range of shops, music and entertainment venues, restaurants, historic sites, museums and sports facilities. We are only a 5 min drive from Lepe beach and Calshot beach, and you can walk straight into the New Forest countryside from the end of our lane. There's also a number of local shops within walking distance.

Job Description

We are looking for an active, energetic and animal loving au-pair to join our family, and help out with our little girl. Someone who is creative, and keen to do sensory and messy play would be an advantage.

Both my husband and I are shift workers, which includes nights and weekends. All of our shifts are 12 hours long, and we work 2x day shifts (05:30-17:30) and then 2x night shifts (17:30-05:30). We then have 4x days off, and repeat the pattern again. We do this 3 times, and then we have 10x days off in a row (every month)- when childcare won't be required. *Obviously, you will still be paid during this time, but are free to use this time as you please, and either stay at our home, or to explore the area. We will need childcare for the entire time we are at work, but can arrange some time at nursery to complement the use of your time. Skye sleeps very well (and has done for over 4 months reliably). Typically she will be asleep by 21:00-22:00, and doesn't wake until gone 08:00. Whilst we are working night shifts, we will need you to be at home with Skye and care for here as required, but as mentioned, she is likely to be asleep for most of the time we are at work.

We live in a village, which is quite rural; so being a competent experienced driver is essential. We will provide you with access to a vehicle during your stay with us. At times you will be needed to collect/ drop our daughter off for appointments and possibly collect some shopping. We would require some simple meal prep, help with laundry and light cleaning. We want our daughter to have a variety of experiences/ stimulation, and for her to get into an active lifestyle. So she attends regular swimming lessons, sensory groups and other baby groups. Our house has a built-in outdoor swimming pool, which does get very deep. So it is crucial that anyone joining our family is a strong swimmer and has first aid training (we can arrange and pay for first aid training, if needed).

We live in a detached house on a quiet lane, with only a few other houses. Outside, there is a large garden and outdoor heated swimming pool, available for use during the summer months and plenty of parking. You will have a generous sized bedroom, big enough for a double bed, and plenty of storage. It has been furnished with a bed, double wardrobe, desk, bookcases and plenty of shelving. It's light and airy, with a large window and central heating. We really want you to feel comfortable and would like you to have the opportunity to have some input into how its decorated. There is a shared family bathroom and cloakroom downstairs, and we also have wifi throughout the house.
