We are a bilingual english/french family and need to find one (or two sharing the job) responsible people to collect our children from school each day and do some occasional babysitting in the evenings.

The routine for the job is as follow: pick up the children at school at 4:30pm, walk to our house (5min walk), give the children a snack and supervise their homework until 6 or 6:30pm. The children are 8 and 11 years old. In the past few years, we have employed two students that did 2 days each as a job share, which allowed for flexibility with a changing University schedule and holiday time. We can keep this arrangement or employ one person for 4 days (Monday to Thursday).

The job candidate should have some experience babysitting or working with children, and should provide two references and a CV. This is a job ideal for a University student looking for a few hours of work each week and/or for someone looking for work experience with children. Someone speaking french is not necessary but would be a bonus (the children are english speakers, but we are trying to keep their french going too).

We are looking for someone to work throughout the academic year next year (September till July), and who can start as soon as possible in September. It is also possible to do a couple of weeks now until the 20th of July, when school finishes.
