WANAKA AU PAIRS have a new au pair role available ... https://www.facebook.com/wanakaaupairs/

WANTED:  Live In Au Pair / Nanny / Entertainer / Big Sister / WOOFER

Start Date: Flexible start date for the right person, but ideally ASAP.

Finish Date: Flexible, but ideally March 2018

Location:  Based on a 7ha farm between Lake Hawea and Lake Wanaka, about 10 minutes drive from Lake Wanaka.  (If you are unfamiliar with the area, Wanaka is a Winter Ski / Summer Lake Resort in the South Island of New Zealand www.lakewanaka.co.nz which is a 1 hour drive from Queenstown / 5 hour drive from Christchurch / 3 hour drive from Dunedin)

You MUST be a confident, experienced driver, have childcare experience   

Caring for three boys aged 10 years, 8 years and 5 years. 

  • Are you vibrant, fun, easy going, reliable, & caring?  The type of person who we can relax with, share a meal with and who can help us with this fantastic family's daily life
  • Do you have previous childcare experience?
  • Do you have your full drivers licence and are you a confident & experienced driver in winter conditions?  The family will provide a car for you to use when transporting the children around Wanaka.
  • Do you want to really experience a NZ family lifestyle and feel like “one of the family” and not a “staff member” or “guest”?
  • Do you have a "can do" attitude and like to help out like a family member would?

If you are interested in becoming part of this family, or in future opportunities with Wanaka Au Pairs, please let us know...

This is a live in role and the main purpose of your role is to provide before school care for the family's three busy boys.  They also may require you to:

  • Prepare and cook the family evening meal (which we would love you to share with us, of course)
  • Housework - keep the house tidy & clean (tidying up, dishes, folding washing etc.) and perhaps some odd jobs or errands
  • Babysit, one evening each week
  • Family Petcare - chickens, dogs, rabbits & horse
  • And just generally help out around the home during your paid au pair working hours

This family has an exceedingly busy life.  Mum is training for a sporting event and has a full-time job in childcare, and Dad is a Farm Manager working long hours.

The hours of work are not quite finalised yet, but are expected to be 6:30am-11am, possibly some afternoons (3pm-7pm) Monday-Friday and one night a week babysitting. 

If you would like extra cash you are welcome to take another job on during your time off you and we are able to assist you with this.  Or perhaps during your free time each day you'd rather relax & enjoy the Wanaka lifestyle with all it has to offer including hiking, mountains, snow & more.

Can you help make this Family's life full of fun for their awesome three boys?

You will be provided with full board (this means your food & accommodation) plus a small weekly "pocket money" type payment ($100 per week).  Your accommodation arrangements are yet to be finalised, but you could expect to have your own space (in a large, modern house on a farm) - your own bedroom and shared bathroom.  Internet use is usually also provided.

Wanaka Au Pairs is committed to finding the right match between applicants and host families.  We also provide you with support and assistance to meet other local au pairs, and we are only a phone call or email away if you need anything.  Wanaka Au Pairs is also able to supply on the job training* to add to your childcare experience/qualifications.  (This is done at no additional charge and is a great addition to any CV when looking for your next role.)  

*Conditions apply 

Wanaka Au Pairs looks forward to hearing from you :)
