We are a busy family of four ( two boys ages 7 and 11) living in Waterford city in a green and quiet area which is very close to the city centre. We live about a ten minute drive to the closest beach and forty minutes to the mountains so we have the best of everything within easy reach. We live an active life with lots of sports and socialising involved. We have room for one workawayer only. We would like someone energetic, easy going, patient, kind and flexible to come and help with the kids - to be an extra pair of hands when its busy, to do some babysitting in the afternoons and evenings and help around the house with the daily routine. We need someone for the month of February 2017 and later in the summer months when the children are off school in July and August. Most importantly you must genuinely like being with, helping and playing with children! Experience with kids is essential.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
You will learn how an Irish family live and experience lots of outdoor fun and watersports.
We would need help for a few hours a day when the kids are home from school and it is busy, mostly on weekdays. You would have plenty of free time to take language classes or pursue other interests. We would need babysitting in the evenings and some help at weekends sometimes.
You would have your own double bedroom downstairs in the house which is far enough away from the rest of the bedrooms upstairs that you will get privacy and peace when you need it! There's a large bathroom across the corridor with your own shower. We have a bike you can use and wifi. We will also be traveling to the west of Ireland to our holiday home in august and you would have your own bedroom there also.
