Busy mum looking for help around the house!
Hi my name is Hope and I am married to Neil. Together we have 4 children, Brooke, Angus and twins Hamish & Florence. The eldest two children are in primary school and the twins go to nursery 4 days per week. I work part time 3/4 days per week as a nurse with the NHS. Neil is a full time plumber.
We are looking for someone to work 20 - 25 hours per week in exchange for accommodation (private double/twin room), all meals and £90 per week pocket money. Please note you will need a bank account and right to work here.
We are looking forward to meeting new people and and experiencing new cultures. We would love our children to speak another language other than English as well as appreciating other ways of life. We would like to pass on some of the experiences we learned whilst travelling and feel this could be a great arrangement for both parties

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
We live in one of the most magical parts of the UK in the middle of Dartmoor National Park. Both Neil and I travelled mainly around South America before we got married and both speak good Spanish and basic Portuguese. We are part of the community here and you will get to know lots of the people in the town (less than 2000 people live here). There is live music in our pub on Friday nights or its 15 miles to the city of Exeter which has reasonable public transport links. If you have a full drivers licence and can commit to stay more than 2 months we can add you to our insurance so you can take our car (Landrover Defender)

We are looking for an individual or couple to help us around the house. I have recently returned to work so could do with some help with the endless amount of chores that come with having 4 children. The main work will be when I'm at work doing housekeeping, taking the older children to school. Neil is a former chef so is an excellent cook but we are always looking to try food from other parts of the world.
