Welcome to the best job you could possibly hope for! A lovely family of four is waiting for you in our beautiful city of Christchurch. They have an active son (three years old) and a lovely daughter (one year old).

This family’s circumstances are a bit different as their father is away each month overseas for two weeks of the month. For the right au pair who may be keen to travel more or have more personal time, there is one week every month where the working time can be negotiated where you can work less.

Their children are very inquisitive and love to go outside in the nearby park. Their son goes swimming with his grandma every Wednesday and their daughter loves being with her big brother. Are you also creative? The children love arts and crafts.

This family would also like you to encourage a healthy diet for their children and help their son to eat his veges. The family makes the most of getting outside to spend as much quality time with each other and go out eating, playing, and watching movies together.

They would love to find someone with a good sense of humour, general confidence and who is outgoing, relaxed and social. The family would also like some help with evening meal preparations and some light child-related housework.

The family have had an au pair before and really enjoyed the experience and how well she fitted in with the family. They look forward to meeting you and can't wait to get to know you!
