    Description

    WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE (ONE PERSON ONLY, NO COUPLES, SORRY) WHO IS AVAILABLE TO START AROUND 30 JUNE AND STAY UNTIL 18 JULY (not flexible). YOU WILL NOT DO ANY CHILDCARE, JUST GENERAL MAINTENANCE- ONLY MARCO, MY HUSBAND, WILL BE HOME AND HE WILL BE AT WORK EVERY DAY. WE WANT SOMEONE WHO IS HAPPY TO DO SOME GENERAL MAINTENANCE - MOW THE LAWN, HANG PICTURES AND DO SOME PAINTING (INCLUDING SPRAYING ALUMINIUM WINDOWS). EXPERIENCE IDEAL. ALSO TO WALK THE DOG (EXPERIENCE NEEDED THERE TOO).

    ALSO HAPPY TO CONSIDER SOMEONE AVAILABLE FROM NOW UNTIL 28 JUNE FOR SOME CHILDCARE / DOG WALKING. YOU NEED EXPERIENCE WITH CHILDREN AROUND 6-9 YEARS OLD AND ALSO WITH DOGS. PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF IN YOUR INITIAL EMAIL.

    Please don’t apply if you don't meet these essential criteria. We get so many applications that don’t meet our criteria and it is a waste of your time as we won’t consider you. IDEALLY GERMAN SPEAKING AS OUR DAUGHTER IS LEARNING GERMAN.

    We’re a friendly, relaxed, very well travelled family of 4 who moved from the U.K. to Australia in 2021. We live in a large house with separate self-contained accommodation with own kitchen and bathroom in a beautiful beachside area on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. We have a beautiful, newly renovated, heated pool and spa.

    Marco is an engineer and I am a lawyer, currently doing some university teaching. We’d love some help with our strong minded, kind 8 and 6 year old daughters and spaniel dog. We would also be happy if you wanted to help make delicious family meals! We have had lots of au pairs in the past and had some great experiences with workaways here in Sydney (we can provide references). We love welcoming new people into our home!

    We are animal loving, vegetarian, eat mainly vegan family meals, and try to be eco conscious. We have travelled a lot- our favourite countries so far are Colombia and Iran (without the kids!) With them we recently had great holidays in Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand and Vanuatu).

    Marco speaks fluent Italian and I speak French and Spanish but we are both native English speakers and our family speak English to each other.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We can help you with English, and learn about each other’s backgrounds. Our girls love meeting new people and we love exposing them to different cultures.

    Our area is beautiful, surrounded by beaches lagoons and lakes. Surfing (including sand surfing!), kayaking, swimming, walking in the national park, it’s all possible! We are 25 minutes walk to the beach and a bit less to the bay.

    We’re 45 mins on the express bus to central sydney (these run every 6 mins) and a short walk from the local town centre with lots of independent shops; restaurants, cafes and a great microbrewery are just down the road.

  • Aide

    Aide

    We are looking for someone - kind and with initiative -to do some straightforward tasks around our home and walk our dog, plus some babysitting.
    Daily tasks include making our children’s lunch and doing their washing and keeping their rooms and bathroom clean and tidy.
    Plus playing with them and spending time with them in our house, garden, pool or local area.

    Dog sitting when we are away.

    Evening babysitting is also sometimes required (super easy once the girls are in bed but would also involve getting them to bed). We may ask you to walk the dog or be home at some point when we are going out for the day.

    If you can cook delicious vegan family meals (we have lots of recipe books!) or do some cleaning that would also be great! Cooking simple vegetarian meals for the girls may also be required.
    Please when messaging tell me:
    1) when you are able to start,
    2) on what visa,
    3) how long you could stay
    4) what your experience is with children of similar ages to urs
    5) what your experience is with dogs and whether you have owned one
    - Otherwise you will be rejected as we will only consider people who have read our advert properly.
    Who are we looking for
    - someone who is warm, outgoing and interested in a cultural exchange (we like to have someone who speaks a different language for this reason).
    -someone who can cope with the chaos of a busy family with 2 young children who are amazing, loving and great fun but, like most children who are allowed to express their needs, sometimes have big feelings (we find we connect best with people who have grown up in similar houses and with siblings).

    - someone who is proactive, empathetic and understanding. This is really important. We treat our children with respect so if you are of the view that children need to automatically respect adults, and adults don’t need to earn that respect, we are not the family for you. Our children have boundaries but we give them kindly and empathetically, as well as listen to them and allow them to express their opinions. Our girls are also super active and sporty.

    -someone who has lived away from home before and is used to cleaning up after themselves.

    - someone reliable and dependable


    In return we will be flexible and considerate. We are happy for you to go out when you want ( within reason- if you like to party every night until late, we aren’t the family for you!) and many of your hours would be flexible.

    Autres infos...

    You can visit lots of Sydney's iconic, stunning surf beaches from here, many are just a short bus ride away. Palm beach, where Home and Away is filmed, is not far, and Avalon, Newport and Bilgola are even closer. All are accessible by bus.

    Winnerremmy bay is walking distance, you can SUP or kayak here in the calm water. You can also hike and explore the bush and waterfalls in the local national park.

    The centre of Sydney is easy to get to on the express bus (very frequent) but we feel like we have the best of both worlds here- none of the traffic or craziness of the city but still lots going on and easy access to it. Please note that it is 45-50 minutes on the bus to the centre of Sydney. They run 24 hours and every 5 -8 minutes.
