A friendly and loving family of four in Wellington are looking for an au pair to join their family. To join this family, you’ll also need to be comfortable living with big dogs. This family have two Newfoundlands – known as the gentle giants that love cuddles and a good tummy rub. Dad and mum are currently working long hours and need an au pair to help take care of their son and their new-born daughter. The great thing is their grandparents are in close proximity and loves being involved in their children’s life. They can definitely be a great guide for you!

They live in Khandallah in the hills of North Wellington just opposite Nainville Park which has a playground, an AstroTurf for all-weather football, a large field for bigger kids. There is a skate ramp, a netball court and a recreational centre where the city council hosts weekly activities for babies and toddlers! From where they stay, it’s a 10 minutes’ walk to the supermarket, library, cafes, and a few shops. If you want to visit Mt Kaukau, it is only 5 minutes by car or 15 minutes by walking and it takes about 45 minutes to climb to the top of the hill but it is definitely worth it! There are plenty of events for you all year round and you’ll get to join them and make your stay even more memorable!

This family is ready to be your backbone for your whole au pair journey. So, you do not need to worry because you won’t be going through any of the ups and downs alone! You’ll make a great candidate if you have experience with babies and toddlers. You’ll ideally also have nanny, babysitting, teaching or coaching experiences or similar to be part of this fun family. Duties will primarily be looking after their children, making activities for the children, cleaning and preparing meals! Get in touch with this family today!
