Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello! Welcome to Brighton / Hove, just outside of London and near the sea! We also live close to a large park, and can walk everywhere in town, so a car is not necessary to get around. We would invite our au pair to join us for any family activities (for example, on the weekends), but they would also be free to come and go and do whatever they like when they are not doing child care. Brighton is a very fun and welcoming town for young adults, and our prior au pairs have easily made friends via meet up groups and the like.

Even though we are busy with work, we also still have a lot of family time. The au pair would be invited to cook a dinner sometimes (up to one night week) if they wish - but this would not be required or imposed. However, we are a vegetarian (+ some fish at times) household, so we hope that’s not too limiting. We buy fresh produce (not wrapped in plastic as much as possible) and like to cook healthy foods, although we also like desserts quite a bit too. :)

Job Description

Our needs may vary week to week, but most weeks we would need help with dropping off and picking up the older child from school at (~8am and 4:30 pm, respectively), or picking up the baby from the nursery (around 5pm). Both children have school or nursery 5 days a week (full time) but sometimes these may get cancelled for days at a time covid reasons, so we are trying to have back up in the house if we need it. We're flexible, though, and can can work around an au pair's school schedule. We used to have a more set schedule but the future still feels a bit hard to predict with some ongoing remote work and the like. That said, we would need help mostly for one hour in the morning (M-F), most mornings, and then with pick up from school and the first hour back at home (M-F), then a bit on either one of the weekend days (most weekends, but we can accommodate if the au pair needs to be away some weekends). Noah (the baby, who will be 6 months old in September) might need a few more hours of care some days, but we would plan that with the au pair. If school gets cancelled, we would also need more help but not more than 28 hours per week.
