Hello future au pair!
I’m a 27 year old mum and entrepreneur living in a beautiful duplex home in Palm Beach right near the beach with my sons Dominic, 8 and Ned, 4. They are super well behaved, gorgeous kids. We're 15 mins on a bus straight to the city centre, or South Bank and I'm flexible with your shifts when needed. This may be my family, but it's YOUR holiday and I want you to make the most of your time in this beautiful part of the world.
You have your own room with a big, comfy king bed and built in wardrobes and wifi. There is a toilet and bathroom with bathtub, shower and amazing water pressure right outside your room that the kids also use (I have my own en-suite)
You will be doing minimal hours caring for my two boys. I have the eldest all the time and the 4 year old one week on, one week off. Please only apply if you have your drivers licence. You do not need to have your own car but needto be comfortable driving a large 4wd (it is automatic) as you will be doing school and kindy pick up and drop off.
I would also love if you made breakfast for kids, helped with homework, did grocery shopping and cooked dinner a couple of nights a week. Plus did laundry and general tidying (I pay a cleaner for actual cleaning weekly).
Our house alternates between peaceful and relaxing, and go-go-go with adventures, swimming, BBQs and day tripsplus I occasionally need to go away for work and we also take family holidays. Sometimes I will be leaving the kids at home with you during these times. Sometimes you will join our family for an amazing expenses paid holiday.
Must be flexible with hours. Some weeks you will be doing very minimal and have weekends to yourself. Sometimes more when I go away.
Full board, food and wifi included plus $350 a week for 40hours a week (often less but will bank these for when I goaway)
I am a blogger, writer, speaker and run my own essential oil online business from home.
You'll have housekeeping duties. It's why we host au pairs- to help lighten our load. Please make sure you love a clean and tidy home that smells good- or at the very least, you're willing to throw your back into it with initiative, unsupervised, while you're here.
I have a kind but firm approach with my kids. We thrive on routine. Four year old in bed by 7pm. 8 year old in bed by 8pm. (I don't raise my voice often, or smack ever). I expect you to have childcare experience, although this does not need to be attained professionally. My partner is a film maker and also works from home. He is an extremely lovely, kind, compassionate, warm and relaxed person. I believe in treating our au pairs as respectfully and politely as I do the rest of our family. And we love to have fun!
Applicants from nursing, OT, therapy and carer backgrounds of any age are encouraged to apply, although not required.
I am looking for someone available for a minimum of two months but would prefer longer term if possible. You will have loads of free time to see Gold Coast and the beautiful surrounding areas outside the home, while still having the safety of all your living expenses covered by me. Ned attends kindy 5 days a week and will go to primary school next year and Dominic attends school and after school care. You will receive a full household manual to read before choosing to accept the Homestay position.
Full routines are written for the children and you will always know exactly what we need from you. Please do not apply unless you understand job satisfaction, and are capable of maintaining a home to a tidy standard.
If interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a photo and a brief about yourself.
