Looking for a part time au pair/lodger

Hi 

We are a family of 5 looking for a part time au pair/lodger who is happy to do some childcare in exchange for rent from Aug/Sept. We have had lots of au pairs before and its really worked for our family, but due to Brexit it is almost impossible. Ours kids are 11, 9 and 7.

You would be required to take them to school 2 days a week and collect them from school Monday to Thursday between 3-6pm and one nights babysitting a week. When with the kids you would need to help them with homework and cook dinner 2 nights a week. This totals a maximum of 18 hours per week so would suit someone who is also studying/working part time.

We have a cleaner so whilst you would be required to do general tidying up/washing up after yourself, you would not be required to deep clean the bathrooms or kitchens.

We live between Honor Oak and Forest Hill and have a large 6 bedroom house over three floors of which one room and shower room on the top floor would be yours. The room has a double bed, cupboard, drawers, desk and TV/DVD. We have a large garden to enjoy in the summer and great views over the city. We also currently have a weekday female lodger who you would share the top floor with.

You would need to be DBS checked and provide references. Childcare experience is preferred. Thanks

    • Similar experience here with Niko. First of al, the voicemail message that says he is busy but will respond, is reassuring. He followed up as promised and detected the leak by visual methods. He also provided detailed information about the origin of the leak, how to approach insurance claim, etc. The pricing structure and the invoice was clear too. Highly recommend Niko.
    • Ok, for clarity, this meeting is being organised by GALA and will be hosted by their PR team. It is likely there won't be any councillors or council officials in attendance. If you've been to the previous format meetings you will know that they will listen to your complaints / praise / suggestions, nod their heads, make the right sounds, make promises and assurances that they'll do better next year, then just do the same as last year. I'm being realistic, not negative - why would it be any different from previous years? Except rather than facing ten or twenty engaged, experienced locals it will be three or four of them against individuals - much easier to manage! As for location, I presume these meetings are supposed to be for the very local people who are most affected by it, there's any number of closer venues (that they've used before) so why make it a long walk / short bus trip for us?  And the middle of August? No one's on holiday then, are they? If anyone didn't get the email and wants to go, write to [email protected] I'm sure they'll be happy to accommodate you...   Oh also, the works going on now have got nothing to do with GALA or attempting to make the ground drier. It is to create flood containment areas to cater for a "once in a 100 years" storm event. So once they're complete, unless this dreaded storm occurs, it will look much the same as before but with some small "bunds" (metre high earth barriers) on the NW perimeters of park & rye...
    • There are pluses and minus's here. The major minus is that any general disquiet is somewhat diminished by there being no 'open' session - and no one to keep tabs on what is being said to individuals or groups. In a Southwark session on CPZs for instance my partner was told that the probable time for being active would be weekdays from 12.00 to 2.00 - which wasn't even on offer when the questionnaire was finally published. This isn't by the way a CPZ issue, so don't rise to it, but an example about the way this sort of consultation in general can be manipulated. On the plus side it can involve more people - which is clearly a good thing.
    • First time i came to East Dulwich was to have sunday lunch at La Careme with my parents around 1980. It was where Sema Thai was I think. I was in hall of residence round back of fox on the hill and i think they wanted to go there because east dulwich seemed 'posher' than Camberwell even back then before it was gentrified.
