Welcome to Sydney!
Would you like live in a gorgeous waterfront location overlooking the Royal National Park? We are looking for our next au pair to join us from late January - early February for at least 4 months (preferably 6 months).
We are a fun, happy and easygoing family of four- Mum, Dad, a 5 year old girl and a 3 year old boy.
Our home is in the most peaceful and beautiful spot with a view like a postcard! We live in the southern suburbs of Sydney in a very leafy location, right on the riverfront.
As part of our family you will have your own bedroom with a king sized bed, water and bushland views, balcony and your own bathroom. This is all on a separate level to the rest of the house.
We love to play at the beach, in the park, with our friends or just hang out at home and relax. We also love finding great new cafes to enjoy a nice coffee or breakfast at. We eat lots of fresh healthy food and like to be fit and active. We have a kayak available for use from our own jetty.
The beaches of Cronulla are 15 minutes away by car. The closest train station is 5 minutes away by car, and there is a bus stop right outside our house. The CBD of Sydney is about a 30 minute train ride away. You will often have access to a car during your stay here for local travel.
Both host parents are airline pilots. Every day is different in our home which is never boring!
Our au pair will be treated like a member of our family, so it is really important that we find the right person for the job. We want you to love your stay with us just as much as we love having you!
We would like someone who is positive, energetic, enthusiastic and of course, someone who will love spending time with and looking after our adorable children! It is important to us that you responsible and not easily distracted, and that you show initiative during your stay with us. This may mean coming up with fun things to do with the children, or stepping in and helping us out with some light housework. The five year old girl goes to school 5 days a week, and the 3 year old boy goes to pre school 3 days a week.
Your work hours will vary depending on the rosters of the host parents. You may be required to wake up with the children in the morning some days, or other days you will need to care for the children in the afternoon / evening and make their dinner and put them to bed. Some weekend work is also required on occasion. On average, you will work 35 hours per week. Most of your hours will be spent caring for the children, but a few hours each week will be allocated to light housework.
There will be times where it will be possible for you to have 3-5 days off in a row, where you may like to travel a little. You will be able to access cheap flights around Australia and New Zealand through host mum's workplace. We want you to see as much of our beautiful country as you can while you are here!
You will be required to do some driving with the children, so you must have a full drivers licence and a clean driving record.
We love to cook in our home, so we won't expect you to cook a lot of our meals, but we may ask you to occasionally. We will ask you to help prepare snacks and meals for the children.
The times when mum and dad are both home will be relaxing for you and we will encourage you to get out and see Sydney, meet some friends and have a good time!
Pay is $300 per week + $20 per month phone credit.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
