    Description

    Our castle offers year round activities, food and accommodation for our visitors, and is located 45 minutes outside Tallinn (by train or car or bus). We are looking for country side, nature, peace and quiet loving workawayers to help out with various tasks needing to be done in and around the Castle.
    Must have a proactive attitude, comfortable in a team environment, and have a general "yes can do!" character.

    Help

    We can host two Workawayers at a time, in return for your help and time we provide you with food and accommodation in the castle as well as free use of all castle facilities (saunas, rooms, kitchen) and participation in castle events.

    Schedule:
    4 days a week, up to 5h per day (ie no more than 20 hours per week)

    Tasks:
    - Kitchen aid (on busier days our Castle kitchen might get overloaded and we'd then ask for you to help out with fixing food under our Chef's guidance. This role would assume you have some professional experience with cooking;
    - Service aid (food and drinks during events or busy visitor days);
    - Housekeeping aid (we'd ask for your help in cleaning up guest rooms, that means vacuuming, washing floors, cleaning bathrooms, taking out trash etc);

    What else ...

    Laitse has a great connection to Tallinn by either train or bus (45 minute ride), and from time to time you'll have access to a vehicle to discover nearby areas. Short drive away there is Laitse Rally Park if this is your flow, you can visit Ruila Stables for horseback riding or a swim in the lake, enjoy a beautiful day by Rummy Quarry (Rammstein shot a music video there, check it out), enjoy the seaside at Kloogaranna or visit a former Sovier border city Paldiski for a trip down the memory lane.
