Living in manchester (Greater manchester)
Sophia - 7 - girl

One parent family
hospital consultant
family orientated activities and my 7 year old daughter and i go abroad on holiday quite frequently

i require an au pair with a good command of the english language. A mature and responsible person who has initiative to carry out tasks in a timely manner and without prompting. I take 12 weeks of leave during the year which coincide with school holidays so for at least 6 weeks in the year my daughter and i will go awayleaving the au pair at home alone or free to travel whilst we are away.The rest of the holidays when i am at home i will share in spending time with my daughter as i will work flexibly from home. My daughter is now 7 and very independent so looking after her requires the au pair to be able to engage her attention and keep her stimulated and interested in learning new things. You will need to be disciplined, clean and tidy and self motivated. My Daughter is currently  learning to play the piano , if you share this interest this would be useful. Not essential!.
