  • Description


    We live in a stunning, leafy part of Brisbane, only 18km from the CBD. You are provided with your own car to explore surrounding areas.

    We have a 7 year old girl and 10 year old boy who are both in good routines & love outdoor play, soccer, swimming, reading & craft. We are on an acreage so they are happy to play outside & swim in the pool.

    The main role is to care for the children five afternoons a week - Monday to Friday between 2pm and 6pm - leaving the days, nights and weekends free for you to travel and explore.

    The routine involves -
    -Pick up from school (5min drive)
    -Take to sporting commitments (10min drive)
    -help with homework
    -dinner preparations
    -General tidy up and house duties with kids

    If you would like additional paid hours, we often need paid babysitting on weekends if you are interested. You would also be able to source additional work in the local community.

    Accomodation includes:
    -Queen bed in private room
    -Downstairs bedroom away from main living area
    -Shared bathroom with kids accessed by external staircase
    -Netflix and unlimited wifi
    -Three meals a day, snacks, air conditioning and an amazing pool!

    We will provide you with your own car for personal use. A licence and extensive diving experience is essential.

    As I am a teacher we not would not require help during school holidays, so you are free to travel or stay in the home while we are away on holidays (Sept 19th - 5th Oct)

    We have had long term baby sitters and three recent work aways for 5 month periods, so they would be happy to provide references for us.

    Start July! Ideally, we would like it if you could stay until December, however we would
    consider a shorter stay.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!
