Au Pair Job in Beaumont, Adelaide

Recommended Posts

We are currently a family of 5 although we are expecting another baby in December 2015. We live in the beautiful suburb of Beaumont which is approx 7km to the centre of Adelaide city. We live in an area with great bush walking and bike riding tracks. There is a bus stop 100m from our home that takes you directly to Adelaide city. Both parents are professionals who also love spending time with their children and take a very hands on approach. The au pair will mainly need to care for one or two children on the days that the mother works. At this stage that is 3 days a week currently Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Preparing meals like sandwiches and pasta for the children will be required, as will some light house duties such as washing clothes though no ironing! We are a loving down to earth family who love spending time outdoors, bike riding and camping. We live in a large 4 bedroom 3 toilet home where the au pair will have her own room, board, TV, Wifi and desk for studying. She would share a bathroom with the children.

 

We are looking for someone to become a part of our family and to be looked upon as a big sister by our children. The au pair is required to assist our children to become respectful, independent and caring individuals, and as such the au pair need only guide and help them to do things for themselves. The au pair will be solely responsible for looking after one or two of the children 3 days of the week whilst the mother works. Help in the afternoons with basic homework for the older children (listening to reading and help with maths) would be appreciated. A drivers licence is not required as we live within walking distance to parks and a kindergarten. This position would suit someone studying either Early Childhood Education, Psychology and any Allied Health area where the individual would like to work predominantly in paediatrics. The au pair will have weekends off (although 1 or 2 weekend evening a month of babysitting would be much appreciated) and 2 days during the week off (currently Monday and Tuesday).

 

This position includes room and board, and negotiated pocket money for the week.

      We have recently moved back to Adelaide after 17 years in America. We have a 17 & 19 year old and would love to meet other expats with late teens that have moved to Adelaide.  Let me know if this is you! Thanks Kym

      Hello Forum..
      This topic is mainly for 489 visa applicants, i.e. those in the process of applying or have already applied and received a grant or are / have already landed in SA. 
      Migrating is not easy as it requires a lot of planning, courage to make things work out as desired. Moving with a family with young children is not easy and when the time eventually comes one develops cold feet and is lost in transition as there are load's of things to keep in mind.
      Here I would request all applicants to share their thoughts on some of the best practices, lessons learnt, tips, do's and don't's that are to be followed during:
      the application process  after grant is received pre-landing preparations  post landing  experiences and lessons learnt  
      This would definitely help a lot of migrants who have many thoughts and questions going on in their mind and it would be great to lend our moral support to who ever needs it 
       
      Thank you all and I hope you all take the time to contribute as this forum has been stupendous in helping others!  God bless and all the best to all those who have migrated or planning to migrate.

      Hi Guys,
      Well by God's grace things seem to be progressing well and hopefully if we clear our Health Check then we seem to inch closer in acquiring a 489 Visa  and considering it would take 5 to 6 months i.e. May - June we should have our visa in our hand. If things go as per plan then we intend doing our landing in Sept - Oct 2018 but I have many queries on how to go about it? 
      We are a family of 4 (2 children aged 9 and 4)
      which suburb in Adelaide do we decide to live in and what should be the criteria while choosing a suburb ? (close proximity to the city, schools, public transport etc) considering that there wont be any income when we reach, what is the monthly outgoing should we expect? We plan to rent  2 bedroom apartment / house. can my children get admissions in a government school? ( i know it wont be free as I am on a 489 visa) and what would the fee structure be like? (Grade 6 and Grade 1) what is the best way to scout for jobs? appreciate if anyone can share a template of CV's that are normally followed. are rental properties normally furnished or unfurnished?  can we get a short term rental where we can be flexible to move out once we decide on the suburb we want to live in? I would also appreciate any additional info that you think can be useful, like from your own experiences, lessons learnt, do's and don'ts etc.
       
      Thank you.
