Family's Introduction to Au Pair

Dear Au pair, We are a great but busy family who need a young energetic person to help us and be a part of our family! We have 3 boys who are 15 (who is at boarding school) so you will mainly look after the 11 and 10. Mum is a lawyer and Dad is Sales Manager. We need you to be fun, loving, upbeat (and sometimes firm), not moody, be creative yet responsible with an eye for cleanliness (neat and tidy) - and generally an organised person. Ideally, we would like you to start mid September for ‘handover’ as our current Au Pair is leaving to travel. We really need someone to be committed to stay for a minimum of 6 months but we would prefer longer - our previous aupairs have always stayed longer ! You must have a drivers licence and willing to drive in Australia & some experience with school age kids. You must be able to read & write English and you must have finished High school or college so you can assist the kids with homework (incl maths etc). We live in a great area on the Northern Beaches of Sydney (5 mins from the beach), we have a lovely large house with pool. In return for helping us you will get your own room, with built-in wardrobe, ensuite & cable TV. You will also have a car which you will need to keep clean but can use as your own at other times (local use only). You will pay a contribution for petrol for personal use. We require an au pair to assist us in the mornings (6.30 up to 9.30am) & afternoon/evenings (2.30 till 7.30pm) 5 days per week getting children ready for school, breakfast, prep of school lunches and taking them to school & then afternoon collecting from school/bus stop, after school activities, helping with homework, dinner (including prep and clean up), during school holidays you will need to be available to look after the boys on a full week basis and at other times provide extra assistance when the mother travels for business or if a child is sick and cannot go to school. You will be expected to look after most of the children's needs, including tidying common areas, rooms neat & tidy (and teach them to do it), making the beds and washing and putting away kids clothes, and other minor housework like emptying dishwasher, emptying bins, keeping kitchen tidy, keeping house neat and tidy, ironing, sweep/vacuum floors when necessary (we also have a cleaner every fortnight to do the big stuff, however its probably best to say upfront if you don't want to help out with this light housekeeping it probably better if you don't respond). You must also be able to babysit 1-2 nights a week (if required although this is not often and usually for us to attend school meetings). You will have weekends off (unless we make a specific arrangement with you) & most public holidays, and may be asked to travel with the family on holidays. Over the last 10 years we have had 10 au pairs (2 x Germany, 2 x Austrian, 4 x USA, 1 x Aussie and 1 Finnish and a Dutchie) who have all stayed for between 6 and 18 months respectively. They are all still part of our family and we are in regular contact - they are also happy to give us a reference and have been wonderful additions to our family. BTW - this is a also a great job if your studying online. So if you want to be treated well and feel part of a family then we are a great start, and loads of fun! We look forward to talking with you soon. Best, Anthea
