Is there anyone out there who is looking for an au-pair job? Live in, £80 a week plus accommodation and all bill. I need about 25 hours a week help with my son, 5 years old, and some help around the house.
My current au pair's sister in looking for a job - she is Romanian and I think 22 years old. She was due to start with a family in August and they have just left her hi and dry as they've decided they don't need anyone. We live on the border of Islington/Hackney too. Let me know if you're interested and I can get an e mail address for you. Our au pair is the younger sister and she is great with our children (2 and 5 years old).
excellent, yes would be nice for them to be near each other. Ours is great with the kids, her English isn't great but the children love her and she's very practical with the and great at playing with them and takes them to the park loads! Once I have the e mail I'll text it to you and hopefully you can start some chat with her. I think she has a flight booked for August some time.
Thankyou! I hope it works out. By the way how did you find your aupair? my last one was great, I found her on gumtree. . . very random, as she posted for a housekeeper job, but she turned out to be a primary school teacher, and totally brilliant with my son.
i found my first one on here! she was the best friend of another mumsneters au pair and this one was a neighbour of the last one! I think gumtree is definitely a good source for finding them though - its what I intend to do next time. Think it depends what your expectations are really - so long as my kids are happy and not in any danger then I'm quite happy. This one is great with the kids but not huge on personality!
