I am looking for a mothercraft nurse from Monday 12th October to help me with a newborn (I should have had the baby by then) and also a 18 month old toddler.
Mondays are the days I need help with....swimming lessons! My daughter loves her swimming and I've cut back ALL my other activities with her (like Gymbaroo) but swimming is the one thing I need to continue.
Anyway, initially, I'd need you go in the pool with my daughter for the lesson, but after I get the all clear from the dr, I'd love to jump back into the water with her again - and you would take care of the baby, help me dry and dress my daughter.
The rest of the day is at home - activities, sleeps, routine. I'm really bad at structured activities, disciplne (basically - being consistent is not my strong point when I am tired and I've been tired since I was pregnant with with my daughter (2 years now), but am great with my daughters routine...after all the help I received from m/c nurses at Tresillian :)
I'm happy to pay $25 per hour and if you are at all interested, please let me know and we can meet up for a coffee and a chat (sooner rather than later). Our swim lessons are at Pyrmont, at 9am, so there are 2 things that we could do:
1. Be at my place (I live in the inner west) at 7.30am to help me with getting the kids ready, bag packed etc and we'll all drive to the pool in my car.
2. Meet us at the pool at 8.30am, then afterwards, follow me home...this option might be easier depending on where you live.
My preference is for the first option, but for the right person - I don't mind.
I'd like you to stay til 5pm. I know it's a long day, but it's the only day I get any assistance and with a very unsupportive and unhelpful family, I need to make the most of it, resting and working on my business.
On non-swim days (school holidays, public holidays), I'd love if you can start at 8am (til 5pm).
I am also keen to have someone who is a registered carer (that might sound silly - but I'm pretty new to all this) and I assume a mothercraft nurse would have all the relevant checks to work with children(??).
A car and drivers license is good, although no travel is required with the children, it would help with getting you to and from work.
I am a loving, caring mum who wants the best for her kids and a bit of a break in order to get some work done and help with stuff that I am not good at like understanding a babys cries etc. My husband and I adore our daughter and hope to have at least 3 children in total (close together in age), so we're pretty keen for this person to be around for a while. But again - not necessary.
I hope to get my business going again after the birth at which point I will need assistance for 4-5 weeks at a time (my work is project based) - partly working from home. It'd be great if you could help me during those periods (5 days) to get continuity of care with my children (although I do plan to put my older daughter in daycare when a place becomes available) and I could give you plenty of lead up time. This is likely to happen up to 4-6 times per year...however this isn't a huge deal and we can discuss closer to the time...if it works out Great!, if not, I'll make other arrangements.
We may require night-time care every now and then - again, plenty of notice will be given, and we can work out dates/times that suit us both.
That's all I can think of - I wanted to include as much info as possible to help you decide if this role is what you are after. Please only apply if you are a certified mothercraft nurse with at least 2 years experience, english speaking, australian citizen, car and license, passion for kids and families and happy to become a part of my happy, growing family.
I'd prefer email contact initially to make sure you tick all the boxes - so please respond back with a CV or at least your experience and how the role will suit you.
Once we establish you are right for the position, I'd be happy to have a chat on the phone or better still, arrange a day/time to meet up for a chat.
