Au Pair Position In Hobart - May 2020

Fountain Family Hobart, Hobart

Job Description

We would love a friendly happy au pair to join us starting early MAY 2020 to become part of our family and be a helping hand.

Tasmania is a fantastic place to au pair and we provide plenty of free time (and your own car!) so you can really explore. We live in a beautiful home with a swimming pool, close to the city and the beaches!

We are an experienced host family, with 14 previous au pairs who are still much loved members of our family. All of the girls would be happy to speak/email/facebook with you (either in English/Dutch/French/German) to give you an honest report about what their time with us was like.

The children are: Boy#1, who will be 13 years old. Boy#2 will be nearly 9 years old and both older boys attend school 5 days a week. Boy#3 will be 4 years old when we would like you to start. While he won’t be starting school yet, we do like our au pairs to take him to a variety of pre-school sessions each week.

It is important to us to find someone who is confident and experienced with young children. We need someone who can handle negotiating with, having fun and general safety with a small human! The bigger boys are both at school full-time so most of your time will be spent with just you and the youngest one. We encourage our au pairs NOT to sit at home with him, but take him with you to do the things that YOU enjoy. He’s a happy boy, he’ll be just as happy in a coffee shop, or mall or on a day-trip in the car or a walk in the park as he would be at home and you will be a much happier au pair. :)

As well as providing room and board, we do pay the standard au pair ‘pocket money’, provide full use of a car, WiFi, Netflix and other bonuses.

More importantly to us, our au pairs are considered part of the family and we really hope to find someone who is interested in that too rather than just looking for a job.

We do require:
Basic+ level of English
Appropriate Working Holiday Visa
(Unfortunately, we are not able to provide 2nd year visa work).
Some Experience with the care of children.
Drivers License and confidence driving in Australia
Ability to drive a manual gearbox car a definite advantage but not compulsory

We look forward to hearing from you if you think coming to live with us might be right for you!
