Au Pair

Halpin Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

Job Description

We are looking for an Au pair to help care for our 2 children 4 years and 18 months.

Our everyday life is busy and both parents work full-time. Currently, our children attend daycare twice per week which gives our au pair 2 days during the week without the kids as well as the weekend. So, there's plenty of free time. 

Our day starts early and we generally leave the house for work by no later than 8.30am and arrive home by 4.30pm. We ask that you take the host mum to work on Monday - Wednesday so you have the car to take the kids to their activities. On Thursday and Friday you get to keep the car after taking the kids to day care. This will allow you the freedom to enjoy your days off. On the weekends and evenings the car is usually available for you to use. All you have to do is ask!

We would like a friendly, caring and easy going au pair that has patience and flexibility. Ideally we would love the au pair to be part of our family and love working with our children.

The main duties will be Monday - Wednesday when the kids are at home with you. Our daughter goes to ballet on Monday and karate on Wednesday. Both children enjoy going to playgrounds, on play dates, to the zoo to pet the kangaroos and to the miniature village to ride the train and have a play. The children have a relaxed program with one morning activity, a rest at home and an afternoon activity to keep them entertained. On Thursday and Friday we ask that you drop the kids off at day-care and pick them up. This will also allow you some time to yourself in these days. Weekends are generally days off though we encourage you to spend time with us as part of the family. 

We will also encourage you to travel and explore Australia so on occasion we can plan to give you Thursday - Sunday off work to travel. 

We'll all share the housework and we mostly ask that you help by keeping the house tidy and doing the kids laundry. 

Not a backpacker? That's ok. We accept applications from Australian citizens, permanent residents, international students as well as working holiday visa holders. If you are qualified for this position, please register and apply via the form below.
