An example of how you might write a letter for your membership form in order to attract potential au pairs.
Dear Au Pair
We have decided to find an au pair because we need help looking after our children and with some light housework. We are looking for an au pair to be a big sister to our children and to become another member of our family.
My name is Sarah and I am thirty years old, I work as nurse in the local hospital looking after patients. My husband Nick is thirty three years old and works as a car salesman.
We live in a four bedroom house near Oxford and have one son Charlie age five years old and a daughter Clare who is seven years old and goes to the local primary school.
The children like to go swimming once a week and we would like you to take them to their swimming club.
We will require you to baby-sit two nights a week and need you to help us in our home for a few hours each week with light housework and some ironing. You will have weekends free and we will pay you ?70 per week pocket money which we will give to you every Friday.
Our village is three miles outside Oxford and there are other au pairs close by. There is also a good language school and we will encourage you to go for lessons there to learn English. In the village there is one pub full of young people, a shop/post office and a village hall where people get together to have parties. There is also a bus stop outside our house with direct access into Oxford city centre.
You will have your own bedroom and share the family bathroom with the children Nick and I have our own bathroom.
We do not have any pets and we do not smoke.
We need an au pair to start with us in January and stay until at least July. We will need you to drive our second car and we shall arrange some driving lessons for you when you arrive. You may use this car for taking the children to school, going to your English classes and for your private use within reason.
We are a fun young family looking for a kind hearted fun au pair to mix in with our family. If you are interested and would consider being our au pair please contact us.
