Payment: $195-$245 p/w plus completion bonus Location: Christchurch
Region: Christchurch & Canterbury Experience: Limited Experience Necessary

This family of 6 are looking for an experienced au pair who will join their family to care for their children. Their four children are young and energetic. Three of them attend the local school while the youngest is currently at preschool. They live 40 minutes away from Christchurch near the mountains in a place called Greendale.

As a family, they enjoy doing outdoor activities such as camping and fishing. Their children aged 12, 10, 6 and 4 are happy children that love being outdoors and exploring the gardens. On the weekend, they would spend quality time with their family and friends.

The typical duties they would like you to be involved in are child-related chores which include looking after the two youngest children, helping the children get ready for school, prepare meals and some household chores.

This family lives in a sensational rural setting close to Canterbury's best attractions such as Mt Hutt, Castle Hill, Lake Coleridge and Arthur’s Pass. Darfield is the closest town that has a few shops, preschools, library and petrol stations. They run a meat processing factory on their property and has a few animals including cows, sheep and chickens. They also have a great support network of family and friends close to them, who help out and catch up on the days when their youngest daughter is at preschool. This family is excited to learn more about you and your culture, and make your experience in New Zealand a memorable one.

Ideally, you’ll have nanny, babysitting, teaching or coaching experiences or similar to join this family.

If this family sounds like the family you would love to be part of, apply today!
