Hi everyone,

We are a Kiwi-Canadian family looking for one or 2 helpers with a driving license to help us take care of our two boys (6 and 10) and do a bit of cooking, house maintenance and gardening. This could involve :

- Dropping off the boys at school in the morning and occasionally picking them up after school.
- Cooking dinner.
- Preparing the boys' lunchboxes for the next day.
- Maintaining the kitchen and bathroom reasonably clean.
- Mowing the lawn, watering the garden and a bit of weeding.
- Speaking French with our children and us, assuming you know the language (we tend to give priority to french speakers because that's the language we normally speak at home, but non-french speakers are also welcome!)
- House-sitting during some family trips during holidays (e.g. Christmas)

The house is conveniently located at a walking distance (15 min) from the New Lynn Train Station (about 20 minutes from downtown Auckland) and a mere 20 minutes drive from the Waitakere Regional Park where you'll find plenty of awesome hiking trails and beaches.

The house has some insulation, heat pumps and an HRV system, so it is more comfy in the winter than the average NZ house. The floors are polished wood.

This is a smoke-free house.

Free internet access (fibre optic) is included.

We are a French-English bilingual family.
