We are a family of 5 - 2 boys (3.5yrs and 2yrs) with #3 born mid August. We live in a rural environment in Central Otago, close to the lakes and the mountains which is great for outdoor adventures.
We have a farm which we are about to start building a house on so have plenty going on.
We work hard but play hard - love getting out on the lakes in our boat and I (Mum) have a few horses that I’m preparing for competition.
You would have your own room (sleepout), free wifi and would be fully kept re food etc.
Hours vary depending on parents workload but you have every weekend off.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
We live in a busy rural community where you would meet lots of local people who would be keen to show you New Zealand's rural lifestyle. We also encourage travel so are happy to give long weekends etc to allow for exploration further afield.
Your primary role is to help look after our children while we work during the week. There would be some sole charge care of the two older children so previous experience with young children is required. The suitable person would have a sense of fun and enthusiasm, genuinely like children and want to interact with them and be outgoing.
You have your own room away from the house. It is not self contained.
We pay a wage for hours worked above the 5/day
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 5 hours a day, 5 days a week (max 25 hours/week)
