Looking for Someone from end of November 2019
Please note: I need someone who has a good level of English so that you can communicate easily with the kids. This is very important. Also, I normally prefer workawayers who are at least 22yrs old and over :)
Particularly interested in any couples or friends but 1 person fine also :)
I'm 36yr old Irish with two kids 7 and 10yrs old. Divorced from their Dad and he lives abroad. I just moved back to Ireland almost 3 yrs ago and we're living in the very scenic and popular tourist destination of Killarney. I'm a physical therapist and my schedule is flexible so I don't have set days or hours. But I mostly need someone to mind the kids when they finish school in the afternoons and to cook simple meals. Also, I work late some evenings so I may need you to help out evenings until the kids bed time.
I work from a clinic beside the house so again its a very flexible set up.
I normally get every second workawayer female and then male to change things up and my son likes having male workawayers to hang out with so open to workawayers of both genders.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
Our house is in a really good location in Killarney. You have all that the town offers on your doorstep and you are also within walking distance to the national Park, can cycle to nearby mountains lakes and castles. And can easily access local transportation to the rest of Ireland
You need to love kids and be enthusiastic and happy 😀
Helping pick up kids from school. Doing homework with them. Cooking meals. Playing with them while I'm working.
As mentioned above I sometimes work late in the evenings so you may need to be flexible and sometimes watch them until bedtime but I normally allow them to watch 30 mins - 1hr of TV in the evening so this is not a very difficult task.
Using your own initiative and multi tasking (as the kids are getting older now they often do their own thing so I would expect that you are comfortable to do some basic household chores while watching the kids)
This is involves helping out with a variety of basic tasks around the home and garden.
Own room in family house
(One room is ensuite)
We are in an excellent location in Killarney town.
We live in Killarney which is a town and a tourist hub surrounded by beautiful lakes and mountains in southern Ireland. It's also close to other popular areas such as Cork, Limerick, and Tralee so its a great base to see some of the most popular areas in the south and west of Ireland on your days off. I use workaway myself also to travel so I love to meet new people and find out their stories also. You'll have a private room in our family home and we're located centrally in the town.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
