Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hi there, we are a busy and dynamic family of 4, looking for someone who is keen to join us for 12 months to experience life in the lovely city of Winchester, which was recently voted the best place to live in Britain by The Times. We have a lot to offer the right candidate: a home within walking distance to a vibrant city centre, where you will have your own bright, large top floor King size bedroom accommodation with unlimited WIFI, private bathroom, use of a bike, and access to English lessons.

We are both established professional hospital doctors who have busy work lives, and have extensive experience in mentoring people into the roles they wish to explore as they naturally progress through their au pair year. We are happy to read through CVs and provide feedback and guidance through any aspect of professional application as we have done with our previous nannies / au pairs, and have provided references for their future roles. We have had numerous nannies and au pairs over the years, with whom we have had brilliant relationships and still keep in touch, who would be more than happy to provide references for us as a family!

It is important to us that our au pair have a positive experience and make the most of their time here. We make every effort to ensure that they feel well supported throughout their stay with us. There is a very active au pair WhatsApp & Facebook group within Winchester, who have meetings daily for those who wish to join, and plan outings & excursions to nearby places of interest / cities for weekends including Stone Henge, Reading, Bath, Southampton, Bournemouth, Poole, Brighton, Chichester and of course, London, which is an hour away by train.

All of our au pairs have found lasting friendships from these initial introductions. We are expecting a return visit from our German au pair this October, who is visiting the UK with one of her friends and will be staying with us for the week. We are looking forward to seeing her after nearly 3 years since her departure! Our current au pair from Australia will be off to visit Germany at the end of her time with us, to stay with her friend whom she met whilst on her placement here in Winchester.
