We would like to invite you to come to the United Kingdom to be our au pair from 2nd January 2018 for 12 months. You would be kind, funny, highly organised, good communicator, pro-active and with a can do attitude.
My name is Kristina (38) and my husband’s name is Svet (38), we have two young happy children, Eliza (6) and Teodor (4). I work in insurance and Svet is an IT Consultant. We have a three-bedroom house with a lovely garden. We live in small town just outside M25 – the London Orbital Motorway. We are few minutes away from local shops and 15 min away from the train station, which takes you into London in 20 min. We are 15 min away walking distance from the Lea Valley Park where the Olympic White Water Centre is located. We are 20 min away from Westfield, Stratford – another Olympic Centre and also shopping centre.
You will have your own single bedroom with shared bathroom. You will have a single bed, bedside cabinet, and fitted wardrobe with a small desk / dressing table. We can provide laptop by arrangement. There will also be Wi-Fi access in your room.
The daily tasks will include help with getting the children ready for school; taking them to school, which is 10 min away; collecting them from school; taking them to afterschool activities like ballet, gymnastics, football; preparing dinner for them dinner and giving them bath.
Housework will include keeping the house tidy, laundry, and ironing for both children and parents, changing the kids bedding and dusting and keeping their bedroom tidy and hovering the main living areas weekly. We welcome any help with cooking too.
The hours will generally be 8.15am – 9.00am and then 3.15pm to 6.30pm from Monday to Friday with occasional babysitting but we do ask you to be prepared to be flexible to suit us both as some time off sick and inset days with the school will have to be covered too. Some of the housekeeping duties will have to be performed between 9am and 3.15pm but in general this will be your free time. Your normal free days will be Saturday and Sunday with occasional babysitting during the weekend.
We will pay you £90 pocket money per week during term time. During school holidays you will have the option to work up to 35 hours and we will pay you up to £125. We will also give you a sim card with £10 prepaid each month and a mobile phone if required. We will contribute towards the cost of your language lessons and will help you find a suitable course.
We are asking you to arrive on 2nd January if possible. We will collect you from the airport.
We look forward to meeting you and if you need to ask any additional questions please do not hesitate to contact us on skype or by email.
