Hello! I´am Alice
We are looking for a female live in au-pair 18+ who has a positive attitude, a cheerful, sunny nature and enjoys being with kids. We have 2 children aged 5 (boy) and 3 (girl) and live in Portland. We are a relaxed, easy going family and looking for someone who has a great attitude, is happy to play with the kids, help around the house and who can fit in well with our family. I am looking for someone to stay for about 6 months but could be longer and would like you to start in the next couple of weeks.
The job would be between 20 and 25 hours a week plus 1/2 nights babysitting. The hours would be roughly 7.30am - 8.45am then from 3.15 or 4pm pm onwards, Monday - Friday. Your weekends would be free apart from the occasional babysitting night.
The duties would be helping the children get dressed in the morning, breakfast, then walking my daughter to school which is a 5 minute walk away. In the afternoon you would pick her up, take her to an activity or have a play date and cook a healthy, nutritious meal for the children. Some light housework would be expected (we have a cleaner who comes once a week) such as the children's laundry, keeping the kitchen tidy, loading and unloading the dishwasher, keeping the children's rooms tidy, tidying away after them and generally helping to keep the house clean and tidy.
In return you would get your own bedroom with desk, TV, DVD player and wifi and a shared bathroom with the kids. You get your board and lodging and on top I would pay a salary of US$80-US$90 per week depending on level of English and experience.
