Due to restrictions now in place with Covid and our inability to find a new au pair from overseas, we are looking for someone to help us at home with running the house and caring for our 3 year old daughter and 1 year old twin boys. Our current an au pair is leaving in the next few weeks to return home and we are looking for our next family member!

We live in large house with a large yard in Ballarat, Victoria, which has a population of approx 100,000 people and is a lovely place. It’s 1.5 hrs from Melbourne, so we are in the country, but close to the city if and when needed.
There will be some household chores required as part of the role, but this will just be as required to help out. Things like cleaning, cooking, washing , etc to assist with managing the household.
We will require approx 35 hours per week (work days & times to be determined with successful applicant).

Our family is fun and a little mad! My name is Warwick & my wife is Marcelle, we are looking for someone to come & help with our young family. We have a 2 yr old daughter 'Saskia' & are expecting twins in May 2019, which means we will be very busy!!
About us.. we live in Ballarat, which is a city of 100,000 people & is situated 1.5 hrs from Melbourne in Victoria, Australia. My wife & I lived in Melbourne for most of our lives, but with a young family we decided to move to a smaller city. We are very glad we did & really enjoy our lives up here!
Typically we would require 35-40 hrs/wk of support, childcare & child minding from an Au Pair. We would be happy to pay any further hours at an agreed hourly rate as required. We will need you to assist us with feeding, bathing, changing and playing with the kids. There will also be a requirement for help with household chores such as cleaning, washing and possibly some meal preparation.
