We would want your time five days a week mostly term time only (although this could be negotiable) from 20th August, which means that every so often you will have the opportunity to go back home or travel if you want to. Mum goes back to work in September and our children would be then 10 months and 2 and a half then. Your first two weeks will be with mum so that the children get time to get used to you and there is a smooth transition.

As for the cleaning, we will need you to keep the family home tidy on a daily basis and about 4 hours a week of cleaning the house during children’s naps or when one of the parents is at home. Weekends will tend to be mostly free and babysitting at least once a week, maybe twice (once at the weekend).
