  • Description


    I am a single mum with a 10 year old daughter, a small dog and 2 cats looking for a girl to come from 15 October onwards..
    Looking for English or Spanish speaking female...

    We are an English /Spanish family,. we love CATS, Horses, and most animals and love traveling and meeting people from all cultures. we have 2 adorable cornish rex cats and a small pomeranian dog who will need walking . And living right in the large town of Gandia, we live bang in the middle of the old town where tons of shops cafés ..fab district..the old town coolest part of town.

    We are moving to the UK from Spain and require paid help in addition to the voluntary hours per day so it would be full time hours each day.
    As long as you speak English it is fine!
    We would welcome a caring, loyal helpful girl who is not afraid to get stuck in and help out with this international move!

    In exchange for your voluntary help, we offer you a room and meals and for the extra work involved for the move, I offer 75 euros/pounds per week and I will pay for your flights from Valencia to the UK when we leave Spain. Please make sure you are happy to travel by yourself from wherever you are to us in Gandia, Valencia. Then in November, together with my daughter, we will fly to the UK to our new house in Lincoln, UK. It is a beautiful cathedral small city and will be magical at this time of year as it will be approaching Christmas! We will need to stay with us to help with the new house, unpacking etc, walking the dog and so on until a few days before Christmas! If you wish to stay with us for Christmas, you are welcome to also!
    we have been having work aways for over 6 years now and enjoy it very much!

    Improve your English language, gain life skills like keeping a home, looking after animals, helping with a child, and how to prepare for a house move including sorting, giving away to charity, un packing, helping arrange the new kitchen, we have already done this before with another workaway and to this day she still thanks me for the vital life skills she learnt with me during the moving process and settling into a new home and area. There is an art to moving home and area and a huge excitement too, you will learn vital life skills and be able to explore 2 cities in 2 countries with us!
