We are a family of 5. Marielle is German but in England since years. Chris and our three boys, Freddy (6 nearly 7), Leo (5) and Max who is 3. Marielle is working part time after the summer. Chris is working for a large IT company and travels a lot and is usually not at home for 3-4 days a week. We are looking for an au pair that is reliable and pleasant to have around. Also fun and interested in making the most of being here. There is a lot going on around here especially in the summer month. An au pair is welcome to go out and about with us, even in their time off.... As you will appreciate au pairing is not a straight forward job as you are in our house all the time. We have got a large house and garden overlooking fields. We are on the edge of the village called Osmington and a short walk to the beach. Have a look online, there are plenty of pictures of Osmington, Osmington Mills and Weymouth. Your would also have your own car to get about locally. We have had au pairs since Freddy was 6 months old. The boys love having a fun friend around and we really appreciate the extra help. Our past au pairs have all had great fun and got on well with us. Our current au pair who is with us since 8 months already will go back to uni in mid May we are looking for a replacement on a longer term agreement. We look forward to finding someone who is willing to get stuck in and be part of an extended family with us. Freddy, our eldest, Leo and Max are a bundle of joy and fun. We've a very friendly Chocolate Labrador he is 11 and a puppy, now 8 months old. We all enjoy live outdoors, walks, and the beach. Freddy and Leo are at school till 3:15pm every day; Max is Pre school has a couple of playgroups to go to. Expectations Hours per week about 25-30 and about 2 evenings babysitting (any day possible, varying but agreed beforehand).
