Christchurch Family Needs Au Pair!

Payment: Accommodation & Paid ($190-$230 p/w plus completion bonus)
Location: Geraldine

This dairy farming family of 4 and a little Schnauzer dog could be your ideal family as an au pair in New Zealand. When you’re a part of this family, you’re in for an adventure! From where they are staying, it is convenient to walk to the shops, restaurants and grocery stores and it’s just a 5 minutes’ drive from Geraldine, 1.5 hours’ drive south of Christchurch, and 4.5 hours’ drive from Queenstown where there is a ski field, bungy jumping, canyon swing and paragliding. Why not make a weekend trip to  the Glacial Lakes, Mt Cook and Queenstown! But if you’re not an adventurous individual, you can take the Earnslaw Ferry over to Walter Peak Station or visit one of the many vineyards or just enjoy the spectacular lakes and alpine views.

The children are aged 6 and 3 and are looking forward to have an honest and reliable au pair that is committed in creating a nurturing and fun environment for the children to grow. Their son (6) is an active young man and doesn’t like sitting indoors. An au pair who enjoys the outdoors will be great for him as you can plan many outdoor activities for him to learn new things. Their daughter (3) loves music, dancing and having fun. She is really friendly with a relaxed personality and loves to get into a good challenge such as a puzzle or learning toys. If you have nanny, babysitting, teaching or coaching experiences or similar, they will be happy to have you!

This family will ensure you get your days off to explore NZ as much as you can! And they will make you feel welcome in the family and make you part of them. You’ll have an amazing time and probably will have a hard time forgetting this unforgettable once in a lifetime journey. Grab this opportunity now before it’s too late!
