If you enjoy living by the beach and would like to join an Aussie family as a live in Au Pair, this may be a role for you:)
Very friendly and easygoing family of 3, Michelle, Phoenix (10) and Chase (6) from Avalon in Sydney Northern beaches, is looking for a live-in Au Pair to start ideally around mid November.
Michelle is a personal trainer so if you enjoy healthy lifestyle and need some motivation to be fit, Michelle will be a great inspiration!
Both boys are at school so you will work in the mornings and afternoons. They get along very well and play great together.
The family is looking for someone with great English skills, ideally a native English speaker, as boys enjoy talking and discussing topics that interest them. You will also need to be a confident driver as you will be required to drive them to school.
Ideally you will also have some experience in working with children who have autism or have been studying psychology or occupational therapy. Both boys have Asperger's syndrome and are highly intelligent, but struggle from time to time with anxiety and big emotions.
Working hours :
The role would be between 25 to 30 hours per week Monday to Friday and sometimes on Saturdays, but as Michelle work schedule changes, she requires a level of flexibility and sometimes you may be required to work early mornings or later evenings.
Your usual work schedule will be:
Monday: 7-9am & 4:45-7:30pm
Tuesday: 7-9am & 2:30-3:30pm
Wednesday: 7-9am (every second Wed) & 2:30 -7:30
Thursday: 7-9am & 4:45-7:30pm
Saturdays: a few hours some mornings on a non regular basis
Main Task involves:
- preparing lunch boxes, school drop off and pick up (you will need to drive)
- preparing dinner for the kids, playing, helping with homework
- help out with light housework, such as tidy up after children, laundry, unpacking dishwasher, grocery shopping.
Michelle has a team of cleaners who clean the house every week so no heavy cleaning required.
In return, as an Au Pair you will have your own private bedroom with ensuite, meals, free internet and access to the car and $$$ pocket money per week plus prepaid sim card with monthly recharge.
The family lives in an amazing house with a pool near the beach, many cafes, fancy shops and public transport to the city.
