Fun loving carer wanted for three young boys aged 3, 5 & 8yrs.

by Amanda • Papatoetoe
This is to support boys who have autism to learn independent living skills. We are committed to providing a quality life for our sons so we are looking for people who will fit in with our family values. This position is not nurse aide work. It involves a lot of play to engage developmentally young children. You have to be a person who enjoys being with children. No special needs experience or training is needed - its provided. We will only consider people with a full clean driver license and experience caring for kids under 5 years age. The full-time role is live-in. We will consider live-out applicants but you need reliable transport and good time management to get to/from our home. No couples if wanting to live-in. The full-time role is 35 hrs p/wk providing before and after school care from Monday to Friday 7-9 am & 2:30-7:30 pm and occasional night-time babysitting. Part-time and holiday positions can be discussed on a case by case basis for people who already live in Auckland. Our kids have always had carers. We are looking for a child focused person who knows how to communicate and be playful. Foreign applicants must be able to get a 1 year visa to legally work 35 hours per week in NZ. Working for us involves police vetting, driving our vehicle and having a proper legal employment contract in place. We pay fees for our full-time carers to be registered with an an Au pair agency we engage so that you have professional support while you are employed with our family. It would be helpful if you also have a 1st aid certificate already. We can arrange 1st aid training if needed. You are welcome to also interview our existing Au pair to find out more about what it has been like working for us.

Looking for a full time afternoon nanny for my lovely 9 year old boy

by Lucas • Island Bay
Responsibilities will include: picking D. up from school at 3pm, taking him home or out for activities, taking him swimming once a week, picking up his 4.5 year old brother D. from creche around 5pm, starting dinner and mild tidying. The majority of the job will be looking after D. who is a lovely and sometimes difficult boy and is on the autism spectrum. He is very independent and has learned to take space for himself to self-sooth when overwhelmed. A lover of all things nature and our resident dinosaur expert, you're sure to learn a thing or two! His little brother D. is a very enthusiastic chap and the brothers have a lot of fun together. He can be at creche until 6pm when absolutely necessary but looking to have him out of there around 5 when possible to keep him happy! I will be home around 6pm every night and opportunities for babysitting into the evening will pop up from time to time depending on availability. Candidates will require a full driver's license and access to a car. Sincerely, Bahrie
