Housekeeper/Nanny in Palma de Mallorca for 2019
We are a friendly family with two kids aged 12 and 9 and we have two lovely cats and a guinea pig. We live in a very green part of Palma with quick and easy access to both the historical + cultural sights as well as the party life of this unique city. Palma is the ideal starting point to explore the mountains, the mallorquin pueblos and the beaches of this beautiful island!!!
I/we have travelled within Europe, South-Africa, Philippines, Australia and in the U.S. and it's great to get to know people from different countries. But we really lost our heart to Mallorca so 12 years ago my hubby and I decided to move to beautiful Palma de Mallorca.
Our multi-lingual kids are used to being around Workawayers/Aupairs from all corners of the world and therefore they are open-minded, fun & easy to be with and they love learning about other cultures. Their hobbies are football, horse-riding, swimming, art/crafting, singing/dancing, playing cards/lego/playmobil, cycling, and spending time with their friends at the pool/beach etc. If you can relate to that you would be just the perfect mate for them... :-)
We all speak German (mother tongue), English and Spanish fluently. Both our kids learn Spanish, English, French and Catalan in school, too. Therefore it would be a big advantage if you have (a basic knowledge) of any of these languages! And ideally you have workawayed with kids (with both boys and girls!) or even grew up with male and female siblings.
IMPORTANT: please ONLY contact us if you are planning to stay a minimum of 6-8 weeks! Even longterm could be possible if the chemistry works... :-) AND: at the moment we are ONLY looking for a SINGLE FEMALE workawayer (hope it will change soon but I will have to convince my hubby first ;-))
