Introduction letter

We are a small family of 3, having lived in England, Germany and since one year we are living and working in Switzerland. My wife is heading back to work to complete her specialisation as an Neurosurgeon. Therefore we are searching for an Au Pair who is willing to stay with us for the next 12 months.

Job description

During the week our Au Pair is required to wake our son Kijani up and help him to get ready for school. As the school is very close he can walk by himself. He will come come home for lunch at11:45 until 13:30 before returning to school on Tuesday and Thursday. The other afternoons he is off school from 11:45. He has homework to complete during the week, as well as attendance at some activities like sports etc. Three times a week he is attending sport classes as Aikido and Allrounder sport (martial arts). We are really looking for someone who likes cooking, light cleaning, and who can drive if required. We will make sure that u have a car at all times. Not that there will really be much driving as everything is a 15-20 minutes away. The evenings are usually free time and the weekends free to explore Switzerland or relax around home in the swimming pool, our small gym or any outdoor actvities. as mentioned before France, Germany and Italy is not far away. so in weekends there ist also the possibilities to visit these countries and learn more about there culture.
