Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear Au Pair

I have decided to find an Child Minder because I need help looking after my daughter and with some light housework. I am looking for a Child Minder to Marlies (responsible adult) and to become another member of our family. My wife has passed away in January 2018 after a long battle with cancer.

My name is Dimitri is 56 years old and works as a Head of IT in London.
We live in a five bedroom house in Winchester and have one daughter Marlies who is 10 years old and goes to the local primary school, which is 10 minutes, walk from our home.

Marlies is a lively girl and likes to go dancing and scouting once a week and we would like you to take her to the Dance club and scout hut.

We would like you to help us in our home for a few hours each week with light housework and some ironing.
You will have weekends free and we will pay you £100 per week pocket money, which we will give to you every Friday.

Winchester City is the old capital of England and has a lot of historic sites as well as beautiful country side, there are other child minders and au pairs close by. There is also a good language school 15 minutes bus drive and we will encourage you to go for lessons there to learn English.

In the city centre there are many pubs and clubs full of young people, lots of shops. On occasions we will attend church and you are more than happy to join us.

There is also a bus stop 300 metres from our house with direct access into Winchester city centre and the train station where you can get to London in 1 hour. The bus goes every 10 minutes during the day.

You will have your own bedroom and share the family bathroom with Marlies and I.

We will pay your bus pass which you can use traveling in and around Winchester. We might require you to baby-sit at times for which will pay you £5 per hour.

We do have a dog (retriever- Labrador) her name is Winnie, she is very friendly. We do not smoke.

We need our Chld Minder to start with us sometime in March or April and stay until at least 6 months.

We are a fun loving family looking for a kind hearted fun child minder to mix in with our family.

We look forwards to you being our child minder.

Yours sincerely

Dimitri and Marlies

Job Description

I have already described a little in the introduction. The child minder will need to make sure that Marlies goes to school in time by reminding her of the time. Marlies will walk to and from school by herself but will need to be reminded of the time to leave.
Cook a simple meal twice a week (Monday and Wednesday).
Clean the kitchen and do some hoovering (I have a cleaner once a week to clean my bedroom and do the toilets etc).
We expect our au pair to walk our dog twice a week and we will agree the days. There are fields very close by and when you feel comfortable you can let the dog run free.

You will be provided with a bus pass which gives you unlimited travel in Winchester City.
