We are a small migrant family. My wife and i are both professionals working full time. We have a 5 year old boy and expecting another in October. We live in a north western suburb of Sydney called Castle Hill, 45 min bus/train or car ride from the city center. We have a fully furnished room and a separate washroom that can be occupied.
We are willing to host upto 2 ladies if they are willing to share the bedroom and the responsibilities.
Our main expectation is to provide the mother support after the delivery of the baby and to babysit the 5 year old.
Therefore, any experience in dealing with children is highly appreciated. There are Australian certifications that are required to get these sort of work, like Working With Children Check (WWCC), Police clearance and first aid courses. We can pay for the cost of certification for the right candidate if they dont already have it but they will need it. There courses will help the person find similar jobs in the future as well. It will be highly regarded if you have a drivers license as well.
All living expenses will be covered such as food, rent, bills etc. We are willing to cover extra groceries with in reason if there are special dietary requirements. We are willing to pay up to 250 per week with or 300 AUD for an experienced person.
Ofcourse it's expected you will keep tidy the facilities you use like the room, washroom and kitchen. Any other help like doing laundry and folding clothes or tidying up the kitchen will be appreciated.
A few restrictions though. We are a very open family, however we do not allow alcohol, smoking, drugs and pork in the home. Outside of it you are free to do whatever you want.
We will welcome you as part of our family, let you join in our festivities, go around on outings, watch movies and series and just have a good chat. We will be happy to host you. Take care, stay well and safe travels. :)

We are an open minded Pakistani muslim family. When we say that, trust me whatever image that comes to your mind, we're far from it (no, i am not a bearded person and my wife isnt covered head to toe in a veil :P). We have our traditions and values but something that will pleasantly surprise you. We have been in Australia, staying in Sydney for close to 3 years now so we know our way around here.
We love to eat, so if you can cook your local dishes, thats a bonus (we will get you the ingredients, no financial burden on you :)).
We were looking for someone to join us as a live-in around September for a few months (3-6 depending upon your availability). Our main requirement is for our 5 year old to have a friend whilst we go through having our baby as we do not have any family around and would not want him to feel neglected.
Additional support may be helping with usual house chores before/after the baby, picking/dropping 5 year old etc. It would also be great if you're also able to look after a baby 0-6 months for a little while each day. We are willing to work together on a system where you can have a few hours off each day based on your needs.
