Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Originally translated from Italiano
Hello dear candidate,

We are looking for a mature and responsible girl, with some babysitting experience, to take care of a lively and intelligent two-year-old girl who still does not speak but who is very communicative.

We are an Italian family and have no pets. I am working on the drafting of my first novel and I would very much need a person to assist me with the child to have time to write, to be able to go out sometimes and to breathe ... My husband is a scientist but not crazy, at least not totally, and works at CERN, which is 4 km from where we live, and which as a professional is very busy but very present with the child.
At home we speak mainly Italian, but I would need a French-speaking person to get the child used to understanding the language before enrolling in the nursery which has been postponed due to pandemic issues. In case French is not your strong point, English and Spanish could also be fine (The child watches cartoons and films in English, and I am a native Spanish speaker but I also speak French). By the way, we both speak English fluently, albeit with a little more accent :-)

The house where we live is the old Thoiry maternal hospital, a nineteenth-century building that has been renovated and divided into four apartments. We are located in one of the two penthouses and have an enclosed garden. The entire property is surrounded by greenery, next to a riding stable of competition horses and, nevertheless, we are 30 minutes by car from the center of Geneva. The bus station is easily reachable by bicycle (10 minutes) and the journey to the center (also in Geneva) is 20 minutes without changes. Obviously, my car will be at your disposal for shopping and for outings in the surrounding area, so we are looking for someone with a driving license and some driving experience. Let's say that without a driving license it is not possible to be truly free to move, here. :-)

For now, nothing else comes to mind, except that we normally spend the holidays with the child at the seaside or in Rome during the Christmas holidays, in Italy, and, if you were interested in starting immediately, you could already do part of our family even from today. We are waiting!

Job Description

Originally translated from Italiano
Do the shopping sometime if we can't do it ourselves. Always cooking for the child, and for you, when I'm not there or, if you don't like what we eat. By the way, we are both excellent cooks (Italian stuff and international fusion dishes).
Change the baby, bathe her, play, take her to the park, speak to her in French, English or Spanish. Stay with her when I go out.
We have two people for cleaning the house and ironing clothes, who come once a week (on Saturdays) and they do the heavy cleaning work, but it is important that you always keep the house of the chaos of the child in order during the week, and that, passing a day, vacuum the spaces where she eats and plays.
Participate in family activities, hikes, tours, walks if required.

The house is not huge (100 square meters) but there is a room with a futon bed at your disposal and a lot of privacy between one floor and the other of the house.
