***LOOKING FOR A LIVE-IN AU PAIR COMFORTABLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS***

I'm a single mum with an 8 year old son. He has autism. He attends Swiss Cottage School (for special needs) which is a 15-min walk from home. We live in a portered building in West Hampstead.

I have had au pairs for the last 4 years and it's been a dream. My first one stayed with our family for 3 years. I mostly need help around school runs, support with general housekeeping (laundry, vacuuming and keeping things tidy) and a couple of nights of babysitting in the week.

My son has after-school therapy 5 days a week from 4:30-6:30 pm.

Essentially, there is a lot of free time. Your working hours are roughly 3.5-4 hrs a day, if that. On the evenings you would babysit it would be slightly more.

We are a vegetarian household and there is a no meat/no fish policy at home.

My son has always been a calm and cheerful child. Lately, since the Covid-19 lockdown during which his father stopped seeing him for long periods, he has experienced an increase in behavioural issues and occasional hitting out at people.

I am looking for someone who is comfortable with special needs, is able to understand that the child's tantrums or behaviours are not personally directed to them, but internal to how the child is feeling.

Someone with good energy and enthusiasm, able to help with daily housekeeping, be vegetarian at home and willing to commit to at least 6 months, preferably 12 will be ideal.

I am working from home for the next 9 months at least, so there will be support in terms of getting used to my son etc.

You will have your own room and bathroom.

You must be female
You must be able to commit to 12 months
You must be comfortable being vegetarian at home
You must be neat and tidy and willing to help with housework
You must speak a good level of conversational English
You must already be in the UK and have a valid visa to live here for the next 12 months

Please find my details below and get in touch if interested.
