    Au Pair needed for my two teen boys for a 2-3 months between mid/late March to late May (though you could stay til late June if you wanted). We live near the beach in bayside Melbourne and over late March to late May both my husband and I will be travelling regularly.

    My two sons 14 and 15 are very self-reliant and great kids but we need someone to help with some shopping, cooking meals, walking the dog (or taking it to the dog park) dropping them to/from sporting activities and just general bit of help around the house.

    So its a lot easier than looking after young kids and gives a lot of free time during school hours to explore Melbourne and catch up with friends.

    We need you to have drivers licence, be a fun person, reasonably good cook, fun company and highly reliable. Great english too as my sons are fun loving boys and enjoy fun conversation.
