This fun loving family of 4 are looking for an au pair who is kind and empathetic. The family owns a catering company and it is very important for the family to have dinner together at the table. They are a tight-knit family with heaps of relatives living nearby. They often have family dinners and outings together. This family have travelled around Europe and are extremely excited to get a new family member.

Their son (5) is a warm, caring, kind, curious and adventurous boy attending a local school. He is like a little old soul who loves to talk and be listened to. He loves being part of a conversation and likes to be taken seriously by a grown up. His younger sister (2) is a fearless young lady that is close with her big brother and loves to learn new things.

They are looking for someone who is kind, caring, honest and calm. You should be a competent driver and it would be a great bonus if you love food and knows how to cook.

Your typical duties would be child-related housework like dressing the children, preparing meals, drop and pick up the children from school and kindergarten, looking after the children, help with some homework and some light household work. They would also be happy if you work for the catering company on the weekends to earn some extra income and be able to meet some locals your own age. However, you are also free to explore and spend your free time however you want.

The most important things to them are their family, their social conscience and great dinners around the table. They would like to raise their children with a worldly view and an appreciation of all cultures, languages and religions.

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