Hello! I´am Julia
We are a family of 3 (2 adults and a 4-year old girl) looking for a full-time au-pair for August 2017, who would look after our daughter during school holiday.
We are a Russian-speaking family, and would prefer an au-pair to be fluent in Russian.
We don't expect the au-pair to perform household activities, except for basic cooking/ warming up food for the child. Cleaning activities that would be expected relate to basic tidying up after playing with the child, and cleaning/tidying up after oneself.
We have a guinea pig, which requires low maintenance, and it is usually cleaned after/fed by the family members. Cleaning after the guinea pig will not be expected of the au-pair.
Working hours would be spread over the working week (Monday - Friday), and weekends will be free.
Generally speaking, we are a friendly easy-going family. Although we are quite relaxed, we prefer to maintain some basic routine when it comes to upbringing our daughter. The au-pair would be expected to spend leisure time with our child, take her for kids activities during the week, go to the park, read books (mainly in Russian) at home, meet with some other families (our friends) with children for leisure activities. We may ask the au-pair for an occasional late-evening shift, but mostly the au-pair is expected to have evenings and weekends free.
We are open for discussion.
