Due to an unplanned delay of an apartment contract, our work has been shifted to the second part of August- help welcome! Handymen needed most with skills of building, renovating, setting up furniture etc.
The job will mostly involve setting up a big Erasmus apartment for students and also helping to renovate my forest cabin a bit outside Riga.
Email me for more detail, thank you! :)
Hey all beloved travelers out there! am traveler myself who has recently decided to set up a small Erasmus student rental project in Riga center so I would need a quick help to do it. My project needs some temporary help.
I really need some handy men to help me to move some furniture and set everything up (includes technical work, lifting, some work with screwdriver etc). Girls also welcome for some cleaning/cooking/decorating and stuff.
Lots of space for your creative expression!
I would offer to stay in the same apartment (Riga city center) while its being organized (no heavy construction work so its pretty clean) and meals three times per day (feel free to join in or take over the cooking sometimes). Depending on the work, the help would be 5 h/per day, with a weekend off, but I am rather flexible so this can be all talked over.
The weekends might be a bit busy but then I can compensate with a weekday off or something. In the best case if you can help me out during the entire project and have several days off at the end.
I expect my workawayers to be rather flexible and I will respond with the same.
The apartment is located in the very center of Riga so it makes it easy to access and provides some great opportunities to go out, have fun, also do some sightseeing during the day. I live just downstairs so I can offer amenities like washing machine, internet etc.
To sum up some of the things which need to be done:
- cleaning (windows, carpets, washing lamps etc)
- light painting, decorating
- moving furniture, helping out with going after it, bringing up (floor 5 !!!:)) - loads of physical work
- installing oven, washing machine, kitchen shelves, other furniture
- helping on marketing, showing around etc.
I will be involved in all the tasks myself so I basically need some help and assistance. Working at ease but with a focus on the result :)
Help to hear from you!
If you like yoga, we can do some flows together in the mornings. I am trying to practice every day a bit.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Helping with Tourists
Help with Computers / internet
I expect volunteers to be able to help out physically, arrange a flat from nothing to living conditions on a budget so help includes assisting me on shopping, carrying, installing, light construction work, cleaning etc. Also looking for someone to prepare the contracts in English and to do some marketing (photos, listings). Cooking skills also welcome!
We will volunteer in a fun and laid back environment and enjoying the process, but still with a focus on the result:)
English, Latvian, Russian, Spanish
Simple double bed room in the center of Riga in a big flat (amenities shared with another flat - mine) internet, shower, washing machine, kitchen for cooking
Flat is pretty empty at the moment (you will be living in the flat which we are working on, but its big - 85 m2) but it has everything to live in it while setting it up.
Riga is just below your window! Currently there are some great exhibitions going on, I can help you with some concert tickets (worked in classical music before), I also can help with tips on local sightseeing, bars, etc. Have a spare bike (for quite short people). Old Town 7 minutes away.
Transport is not needed if you wanna stay around center, but in case if you decide to go to the seaside, the train station is just 5 minute away (around 1,50 EUR one way to the sea)
I am really happy to help with everything and also take you out if I go with some friends:)
Limited internet access

I am actively involved in the Riga cultural life so I can take you with me and show you around. Also many nice places are within walking distance so feel free to spend your afternoons, seeing around Riga. Of course, you will have a chance to learn about the history of Latvia, the traditional culture and local hipster wibe :)
