Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


My name is Shannon (33) and I a single parent to Penelope (7). We live in a small hamlet around 35 minutes North of Belfast.

Penelope is extremely fun loving and fiercely independent pendant and self sufficient. She loves to cook and bake for herself, gets her own uniform organised and makes her lunches for school.

Job Description

Due to my working hours in a new position, I am looking for some home help for Penelope. I will be in Belfast at the office 3 days per week (flexible days Monday to Friday) and will not be able to be available for evening care.

The role will require a driving person to collect Penelope from school at 3pm each day (2pm on Fridays), and take her to her activity, get dinner sorted out and put her to bed. I will be home by 9.30pm on the evenings that I am in the office, then you are more than welcome to fill your evenings however you please. You are also more than welcome to take up a part time job as long as you are still able to fulfil the above times with Penelope.

Penelope's bedtime is around 8/830 so on the 2 days that I am home, you'll be able to have a slightly earlier finish or I can do dinner and bedtime if you have other plans.

I take care of homework over the weekend so this largely wont be required.

Both Penelope's school and any activities are no more than 10 minutes from home. I also batch cook almost all of her meals so again, for the most part, it will just require food being heated up. You do not need to be a chef by any stretch!

It is essential that you be able to drive as public transport is available, but limited.

Weekends would be your own with no childcare required, as would the full day until time for school pickup. I will do all of the morning drop-offs to school.

Basic housework would be appreciated but not expected and meals will all be included, although you're welcome to make your own and have full use of the house.
