Au Pair / NannySimons Pass Station Lake Pukaki / Tekapo Twizel / Canterbury Au pair / Nanny Accommodation + Pay(Know your rights) 0 Experience with children
We need a new cool au pair to look after our twins and we are expecting another set of twins at Christmas ideally for 12 months at a minimum – but we are flexible
Weekly Wage – $250-$350 per Week
This is paid through IRD so you will be able to claim back tax when you leave NZ .This is Dependent on Experience and how awesome you are !
Basically start see how things go and we will increase it based on performance. We want to have good communication so we have a good understanding of what’s required and making sure everyone’s happy!
This also entitles you to 4 weeks paid holiday pay per year as well as 6 “sick” days
Everyone needs a break/weekend away now and again to refresh your mind and get re-motivated so it’s important you want to get out and about and travel around NZ exploring
We ask for weekdays hours 8am- 430/5pm. Two days a week the kids will be in kindy so easy days with less hours / Typically 30-35hours/week
This does vary with our work – some earlier mornings some later nights BUT we always try to give you time off to make up for extra hours OR pay you cash.
We do require babysitting some weekends; as above extra time off will be given to explore around NZ.
Bernie & Dot have an afternoon sleep so you typically get 1 & 1/2 to 2 hours break – they go 2 mornings a week into kindy soon so you would be required to drop off and pick up on those days.
Housework – At times things will look like a hurricane has been through but we do like to keep things CLEAN and tidy most of the time. We expect our au pair to do washing & vacuuming & Dishes regularly as well as complete some evening meal preparation as well as baking.
We all work together as a team so if everyone chips in; it makes for light work.
Brand new Self Contained Accommodation –
Unlimited Fast Internet & Laptop – to use if required during your stay
Meals/ Food Provided
Late Model Subaru Station Wagon for personal use
Typically you will drive my truck with kids which is Land Cruiser Prado 4WD.
We have a high volume of tourists on our roads therefore we require someone to be confident with driving and very safety conscience. This is my biggest fear our kids having an accident therefore we require you to behave as if they were your own precious children on board – no cell phone use while driving.
Always leave early and abide by the speed regulations and following distances.
We want you to be a quick thinker with a calm but careful nature. Have a love for outdoors and a self-motivator for creating activities and keeping the house under control. We want you to love and care for our twins the same way we do, but also understand when discipline is required. We also live and work on a farm and have various animals such as horse’s dogs chooks sheep & cows. You will be required to feed and care for these as part of your daily routine with kids.
Other things – ideally you will have basic first aid training / CPR training – if not we can organise this.
We adopt you into our family –Take you with us to catch-ups with friends and family; Trips away around NZ and abroad at times and hope you really get to love NZ People and Life the same way we do.
There are various other Au pairs around here along with high levels of backpackers therefore you shouldn’t be without friends even with our isolated location – but it does require you to be confident and outgoing in order to build relationships.
We often have backpackers stay with us a various times too.
