Accommodation: either a private room in the family home or a rented room in a shared house near the family home

Description: Family living in North London, less than 30 minutes from the city centre. You will have sole charge of a 4-year-old in school full time from January so you will work mornings and afternoons and will have lots of time off during the day. During school holidays you will work a full day, 8 am to 6 pm. A degree of flexibility is required, with occasional late evenings and very rare overnight care but overtime is paid extra and you will be given more holidays than the normal holiday allowance is to compensate.

Cleaner is employed so only light household duties are required, such as tidying up toys, doing child’s laundry and cooking for child. Driving is required for school journeys but this is an easy route in the suburb and doesn’t involve driving in the heavy city traffic (the family will pay for driving lessons if required). Accommodation will be either a room in the family home or a room in a shared house (although you will always be welcome to spend time in the family home). This lovely family is looking for a long term employee and member of the family.

 

Elderly Companion positions available

 

We have dozens of Elderly Companion positions available, mainly in the United Kingdom. As a Companion, you live with and help an elderly person (or a couple) in exchange for room and board plus pocket money/salary (generally much higher than for Au Pairs). You typically work part time, up to 30 hours per week, but we also have some positions where you can work full time.

Duties include cooking, cleaning, laundry, running errands or accompanying the elderly to appointments and outings, and sometimes also pet care (if you are happy to look after pets). It is important that you speak at least average English as conversations with the elderly on a daily basis are part of the role. No personal or medical care is required and you do not need a qualification in care work to work as an Elderly Companion.
