  • Description

    Description

    We are a multicultural family of 4, an Italian and a white Jamaican, two kids English and Scottish, 10 and 3 years old. We live in the heart of Edinburgh in a six bedroom Victorian house split over three floors.

    After almost one year in trading now our B&B is blooming, with all three rooms to capacity, whilst all the while using our creativity to upcycle everything we need; furniture, decorations, garden features etc... we want your ideas and input as well as flexibility with the daily chores required of guesthouses.

    Help

    We need people who are responsible and hardworking and can help us with the following:

    - cleaning
    - childcare
    - marketing, writing and social media for business purposes
    - physical tasks, such us gardening, making furniture
    - sewing / upholstery

    If you have any of the above, send us a request.

    PLEASE SPECIFY ARRIVAL DATE AND LENGTH OF STAYING WHEN APPLYING.

    We can be quite flexible with hours, as long as the weekly agreed hours are covered. You will never get bored of doing the same thing and you will get involved in creating and making things with style.

    Usually the minimum placement we can offer is 4 weeks. Ideally we’d like to take volunteers for a minimum of 8 weeks - or even more as we would love you to really feel part of our family :) However, as we have just had a situation where two Workawayers have had to leave to go back to their home country on short notice, we are happy to be more flexible if you are only wanting to stay a short period of time. But really, who wants to spend less then a few weeks in one of the most beautiful cities in the world?!

    We have two private rooms for Workawayers and always overlap arrival/departure dates.

    We will never ask you to help above your average 25 hours per week. However, we always encourage volunteers to get involved if they wish, and this opens up a lot more opportunity to get a real experience on skills and improve your language if needed.

    Please explain your interests as much as you can, specify arrival date and the skills you can offer!

    Due to high demand of requests, we sometimes do not manage to reply to everybody straight away. If you are lucky and we think you'd be a great fit you will get a chance!
