  • Description


    Our names are Elias (French) and Caroline (Swedish), we are a young couple of 27 that travelled across the globe and are now parents to two twin girls Freja & Stina (born November 2018) + our beloved cat called Jean-Marc.

    We have been helpers in the past (mostly in Australia) and would like to offer to fellow helpers the opportunity to visit and discover the north of France.

    Caroline is working in the beer industry and Elias is fully committed in renovating the house and running his own company.

    We bought two years ago an old café that has been renovated and turned into a house!
    So far we have finished most of it, except the kitchen and the terass.

    The profile we are looking for is :

    Someone that already has some experience in child care, that is playful but that is as well responsible and reliable.
    We would need help between 9.00 to 13.00 Mondays to Fridays and it would include you giving the girls breakfast and lunch, and in between a lot of playtime!

    You would always have your weekends and afternoons off and you would be staying in your own bedrooms on the last floor.

    Note that we live only 10 min walk from the old town of Lille, you will find heaps of restaurants, bar, clubs, museum etc...

    - WIFI is fast - If you smoke, no problem we have a garden - Bus stop in front of the house - 30 min walk or 5-10 min to cycle max to reach the central station (train and coach)- we provide beer and wine along with the food -

    Speaking French fluently is not mandatory at all, yet it isn't a problem to speak exclusively French.
