Family Shaw

Julia Shaw.
We live in Hertfordshire, about one hour from London.
We have 3 daughters 6,11 and 13. I'm a single mum & my partner lives with us. My ex husband has our children some weekends.
We are also close to Cambridge,Stevnage and Litchwood. The eldest is at boarding school and my two younger girls at local school. One of my daughters is a keen rider. We need a car driver and if you are able to drive a horse box even better.
We have 3 ponies here, 2 hunters and 2 young thoroughbreds that we are training up as polo ponies. The idea is to regularly bring young ponies here and get them going in the manége we have here before transferring them to the polo club to further their education! My partner and I like to hunt regularly over the winter, as do the older girls, and I am a master of the local pack. We have a 3.5 tonne lorry and if you are able to drive then great. I need a girl to help muck out, ride ponies and do stable duties. We have a cleaner who comes 2 mornings a week.
Other duties would be driving the children around, cooking, some housework and washing, tack and boot cleaning, mucking out and keeping the yard tidy, riding depending on ability, running errands, occasionally driving ponies in the lorry and generally mucking in with family life. I would like someone who is good fun with the children and who they enjoy being with, and who wakes up in the morning looking forward to going out and sorting out the horses.
5 and half days a week, starting salary £150 with food, accommodation (bedroom and bathroom) and use of a car plus insurance paid for. Nearest airport is Luton or Stanstead (40 minutes from our house.
We need someone to join us as soon as possible

A bit about our children

Our son has just started boarding school (he comes home every weekend). He is a very gentle, kind, bright and fun-loving boy. He adores playing football, loves lego, making dens and is very eager to please and appreciates gentle, loving guidance.

Our daughter, 4 years old and is more out-going than her brother. Bella loves dressing up, playing lego, running around in the garden on the trampoline and playing tickling and teasing games. Bella is a very happy little girl, very loving and responds well to being treated with respect and kindness and will just love having someone dedicated to playing with her!

My husband and I have been married for 10 lovely years. We both believe in hard work and having fun. We live in a friendly and beautiful part of England and are only 1 hour away from London by train. There is the town of Banbury is nearby with lots of shops, cafes, sports hall etc. and we provide use of a car to travel in to town, the train station and to see friends. Oxford, England’s finest university town, is 20 minutes by train and is worth a visit. Stratford upon Avon is 25 minutes away and is the home of Shakespeare which is also well worth a visit. We are members of a local tennis club and they may borrow the key to the tennis courts if they wish to play. There is lots to do and see.

In the home, the au pair accommodation is a lovely bedroom/sitting room/bathroom area with kitchen facilities provided. We have provided a fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle so that they can be independent and make their own meals but they are welcome to help themselves from our larder and cook in the main kitchen. We have quite a comfortable pull out bed if they would like a girlfriend to stay the night. We provide use the Fiat Panda car and will pay insurance and road tax and petrol.

I hope this gives you a good idea of what we are looking for and I hope to hear from you soon.
