Au Pair Position - In Regional Australia With Easy Public Transport To Sydney

Linda & Tim Bathurst, New South Wales

Job Description

We are seeking an au pair to join our family in January 2017.

To be successful in this role you will

• Have a genuine love of children (kids can tell)
• Have an outgoing personality
• Be a morning person – ready to go 7am Mon-Fri
• Be a confident and experienced driver
• Be extremely organised, flexible (things change) & easy going
• Have a can do attitude with good ‘small people’ negotiation skills
• Must be a non-smoker – no exceptions.

Most importantly you will support us with our 3 school age children 10yr old boy, 9yr old girl and 5yr old girl. We have 2 businesses (Trade Construction & new Retail Business opening in mid-January 2017) so with all this in mind we need support with our children, basic house cleaning, meal prep & generally helping to keep our busy lives on track. After a few weeks once we have all settled into a routine we would be open to you having a 2nd job in a café or the like during the middle of the day if you would like to earn some extra money.

We live on acreage with a pool a few minutes from the regional city of Bathurst NSW. Driving is an essential part of the job so you can complete school drop offs and assist with all the various activities the children are involved with in the afternoons.

You have you own room & with flat screen TV & reasonable internet data. You will share a bathroom. We have a small dog so it’s important you a not allergic to dogs. This role is definately a live-in au pair, which will attract pocket money with full board and access to one of the family cars in your off time via discussion. You will need to provide proof you hold a driver’s license & hold travel insurance.

The Monday-Friday schedule will be a 7am start time dressed & ready to go for the day. Mornings are the most hectic so if you are not a morning person this may not be the position for you. There will be basic house work, some meal prep & washing for the children during the day. Afternoons will be school drop pickup, some afternoons consist of extra activities, bath & dinner assistance. We are hands on parents however with 3 kids and 2 businesses it’s about helping us keep all balls in the air and having a great time doing so. Weekends will generally be yours however sometimes some extra care will be negotiated with you. There is daily public transport to Sydney 2.5hours away. We are ideally looking for a 3month - 6month commitment.

You will have lots of energy, love having a laugh, demonstrate initiative in spades & be a little OCD when it comes to being organised. You need to keep up with young family constantly on the go!

Hopefully that gives you a fair overview of what is on offer & what is expected.

Please EMAIL an up to date resume with a recent picture, your current location & when you would be available to commence if successful.
