Dream Nannies - Au Pair and Nanny Agency
Experience the real outback Australia on a cattle farm in Wagga Wagga!
-Must be a confident driver
-September to December
A lovely family of 5, living on a beautiful 2000-acre cattle farm 20 minutes south of Wagga Wagga in southern NSW, is seeking an au pair for their three beautiful children - two boys ages 3 & 5 years and an adorable 1yr old baby girl. The family also have a friendly Jack Russell dog and a house cat.
Both parents are Vets, Mum works part time and the Dad runs a Cattle Reproduction Business which involves a lot of travelling away from home - hence the need for an Au Pair to support this busy household.
This role entails looking after the children in the home, and providing a fun environment for play and learning. Helping with normal daily household tasks.
You will be required to work every second weekend but when you have a free weekend you don't need to help Friday afternoon so you can enjoy a long weekend.
The children attend childcare on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. On the weekends the family like to explore the farm or local area or parks in town with a hot chocolate or cheeky ice cream! We have a holiday house on Hume Weir so a lot of our summer weekends we spend down there in the water, holiday park next door and/or water skiing.
We are looking for an active, motivated, and trustworthy person who enjoys the rural lifestyle, and someone who can join the family ideally until Christmas. Experience with, and a love for children is necessary. Must be trustworthy and able to handle 3 little ones at the same time on their own. As a family member you will be willing to help with the daily needs of the household and be willing to play chasey, read books, jump on trampoline, go on bear hunts, paint, instigate games and be a big buddy for our children.
Wagga is a bustling university town, so there are many young adults, their activities and always a new influx of people due to the towns growing size and excitement of living rurally. Being an agricultural area there are many farmers who have au pairs who are always interested in socialising. Wagga has the best of both worlds, rural living but still has the big city likes of many delicious cafes and coffee shops. There is a train station direct to the centre of Melbourne and Sydney and an airport with flights to major cities.
The family have a 5 bedroom, 2 bathroom newly renovated house that was originally built in the 1900’s. The house is on a beautiful 2000 acre cattle farm 20 minutes south of Wagga Wagga in southern NSW
Au pairs Accommodation: Room within the house at front, shared new bathroom with the children (who hardly use it) bedroom has king size bed and beautiful outlook to the west in bay windows.
Wagga Wagga is a large regional centre, boasting many attractions. Shopping, eateries and entertainment are all on your doorstep, as well as an airport and train station.
There are lots of families with au pairs in town, so you will have friends waiting for you! The family have had 3 au pairs previously and still remain in contact with them as they became a big part of their family !
You must be able to drive, and can use the family car on request.
You will receive generous weekly pocket money and a bonus at end of the stay.
