8hrs p/w | Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol | 18 September start

Freckles has a lovely family with two chatty, hilarious and very entertaining 9yo twin girls who need someone amazingly fun and loving to pick them up from school two afternoons per week. Hours are roughly 3pm - 6.30pm, with an extra hour for some housekeeping. The days are completely flexible - just let me know what suits you! 

Driving isn't essential as the girls are at a school about a 5-10 minute walk away but it is preferred as some activities are bit of a drive. For example on Thursdays the girls have swimming which is in Henbury (about 10 mins away by car). If you can't drive/don't have a car then we'd just need to make sure the days work out! 

One of the girls struggles a lot with confidence at school. When you meet her at home she's super chatty, energetic and easy to get on with - they both are. But at school she is very shy and reserved and her confidence is lacking. Therefore we really need someone who can support her and boost her confidence and show her that she can thrive at school. You really wouldn't know this by meeting her though! 

The girls were a hoot at their home visit - they had prepared a list of criteria... see a selection below:

  1. Let us eat chocolate even when mum says no
  2. Feed us lots of food
  3. Don't interfere... 

The list goes on and just shows what characters they are! 

This is a perfect job for a student, freelancer or someone self-employed as the mum can be flexible to change days each week if required. The role requires a minimum of a 12 month commitment so that the girls can become really confident with you. 

When you get back from school it's a case of snack, chill, play and food! The girls typically do their homework over the weekend so it's rare that you'll need to sit down with them in the evening. As with most kids they're pretty knackered when they get back so letting them have some chill time is really important too. 

As always the main info is listed below. This is a really super role for someone looking to become part of a fun and loving family. You're biggest challenge is going to be telling them apart! If you're not yet registered with Freckles simply send us a copy of your CV and cover letter to kayas@freckleschildcare.co.uk and we can go from there.
