Childcare And Family Help

Payment: Accommodation & Paid ($300 pw)
Location: Ngaio
Region: Wellington
Experience: Limited Experience Necessary
Contact: 0212525879
Listing Added: 20/10/2017

We are looking for a caring, fun and reliable person to help our family from approximately 23 November to 23 December 2017. And then potentially the same or a different person from about 15 January to 14 April 2018. 

We have three kids aged 12 (boy), 10 (boy) and 9 (girl), and the main task will be looking after them after school from 3pm until about 6pm M-F. This will mainly involve taking them to some after school activities, helping with homework and helping cook dinner and other usual family jobs.

Ideally you'll be someone who'd become part of the family while you are here, and who has some experience looking after kids and speaks fluent English. It would be great if you had a full and clean driver's licence. Also ideally you'll be someone who is happy to help walk our dog (a very energetic spaniel) and who will help with jobs around the house (cleaning, washing etc).  We also need about 2 hours each Thursday during the day. In total it’s usually about 20-25 hours a week, which should leave you with loads of time to explore Wellington and have fun.

We’d pay $17.50 per hour, but subtract $125 per week for board. 

We live in a suburb fairly close to the CBD with bush walks close by. We’re on a main bus route and about 10 mins walk to a train route. The room is large and a bit separate from the other areas, so you could get privacy. I can provide photos and more information if you seem like a good fit.
